The Daily Show Launches Its Own Version of Extreme Vetting… of Trump Supporters

Screen Shot 2016-08-18 at 11.29.13 PMAt a carefully choreographed speech earlier this week, Republican nominee Donald Trump spoke more at length about his grand plans for securing our borders. The proposal, which if enacted would surely rival our nation’s historic Gentlemen’s Agreement with Japan in 1907, is a process known as “extreme vetting.”

“We should only admit into this country those who share our values and respect our people,” said Trump on Monday. “Extreme, extreme vetting.”

To try it out for himself, the Daily Show‘s Jordan Klepper attended a Trump rally in Wisconsin this week to put extreme vetting to the test.

But not to immigrants like Trump envisioned. Klepper ran the test on loyal Trumpians instead, digging to the heart of many of their perceived biases. “Fill in the blank,” Klepper says to one rally-goar. “Two men getting married is…”

“Disgusting,” replies the man emblazoned in Trump gear without missing a beat. Klepper even managed to find a woman in attendance who was the first to blame — get this — female hormones for the reason that Hillary Clinton should never find herself near the little red button.

“She could start a war in ten seconds,” says the woman matter-of-factly.

But the real sundae here is the man wearing a ‘Trump That Bitch’ shirt — as one casually does — with Klepper digging in to expose the man’s true feelings about the ladies.
