Mark Zuckerberg’s Secret Meeting with Trump & Peloton Ad Blowback | The Daily Show


Facebook, the world’s largest
social media company and website that reminds you it’s the birthday
of someone you met once. Recently, it came out
that Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook
and boring Terminator, had a secret meeting with President Trump
at the White House. And now, for the first time, Zuckerberg is being asked
what that meeting was about. You don’t want
to take down political ads that people know are… false, that they contain
false information. What I believe is that,
in a democracy, it’s really important that
people can see for themselves what politicians are saying so they can make
their own judgments. You had dinner with the
president at the White House. What was the nature
of the meeting? Can you say? Uh… Sure. I mean, w-we talked about, um, a-a number of things that were–
that were on his mind and, um– and some of the topics
that you’d read about in the news around-around,
um, our work. Did he try to lobby you
in any way? (stammers) No. I mean,
I-I don’t think that that’s… (stammers) I think some of
the stuff that people talk about or think gets discussed
in these discussions -are not really how-how
that works. -Okay. I also want to respect
that it was a private dinner -and private discussion.
-Okay. All right. Oh, so now Mark Zuckerberg
believes in privacy, huh? Now you’re like,
“Oh, no, privacy is a thing. “Oh, I think
everyone should know, uh, what politicians
are saying.” “Oh, what do the politicians say
to you?” “Uh, I don’t think
anyone should know what the politicians
are saying.” Get the Zuck out of here, man! And, also, I don’t know
what’s going on with Zuckerberg, but he sounds less human
every time he speaks. Yeah, he’s like…
(robotically): “In a democracy, “we must share our voices,
and weather today is gonna be partly cloudy,
64 degrees.” It almost sounds like Siri
is his voice coach. You know,
like she’s trying, like, “Just speak normally,
like this.” “Okay, this is me
talking normally.” It’s like, “That was terrible. You sound like that Roomba
I dated.” And, also, let’s be real. There’s no way
Trump didn’t lobby Zuckerberg at their secret meeting. ‘Cause why else
would the president have him come
to the White House? What, did Trump need help
untagging himself in Eric’s photos?
Why was he there? Huh? Because if Trump didn’t want
anything, then you have to believe
that he just wanted to hang out with Mark Zuckerberg. Really? ‘Cause these two
have nothing in common. Like, what-what would
that conversation even be like? “I like models.
Do you like models?” “I genuinely love data models
and algorithmic sets that prove the way that we…” “No, I mean supermodels.
This guy sucks.” Anyway, let’s move on. Because while Facebook
is coming under fire for its shady political ads, there’s a nonpolitical ad that’s taken social media
by storm. REPORTER: As the Christmas
season spins into high gear, a new ad from Peloton is going viral
for all the wrong reasons, facing backlash after sending
shoppers into a vicious cycle. (gasps)
A Peloton? Give it up
for our first-time riders! All right, first ride. I’m a little nervous
but excited. Let’s do this. Five days in a row. You surprised? I am. 6:00 a.m. Yay. Rising with the sun! That was totally worth it. A year ago, I didn’t realize
how much this would change me. -♪ High above me. ♪
-Thank you. Criticism and mockery of the ad reaching a fever pitch Monday
on social media, one man tweeting… (reading): Oh. Man. Okay, look, I-I can see why some
people are hating on this ad. Honestly. I mean,
it looks like the dude bought his skinny wife
exercise equipment as a Christmas present,
which is shitty. Although, let’s be honest,
it would have been worse if Santa had brought her
that bike, you know? If he was just like, “I think
you need this more than I do. Ho ho ho ho!” And I know some people
are outraged at the husband for giving her
this kind of gift. Although, if you– if you ask
me, I think your reaction to this ad has a lot to do with
how you feel about exercise. Right? ‘Cause, clearly,
she wanted the bike. It’s not like she was like,
“What is that?” She wanted it. Right? And if you think
exercise is only for people who want to lose weight, then
the ad can seem insensitive. But on the other hand,
if you think exercise is something people do
for fun, then the ad is-is fine. You know? I mean, people
exercise for different reasons. For stress relief, fitness, or
if you’re like me, for revenge. -Hiya!
-(laughter) Once I get strong enough
to punch through a brick, I’ll get revenge on that brick
that killed my uncle! -Yah!
-(laughter)

  1. Stop saying zuck is a robot. He just reacted like a human being. First u notice he expected that question. The second question caught him offguard obviously.

  2. Facebook sucks, Twitter sucks, all Social media sites suck. They either suspend you for nothing, or they sell your information to third parties who sell it again

  3. I've been wanting a Pelaton bike for YEARSSS!!! Too bad my Remicade infusions and health insurance cost me $30k out of pocket and I can't afford anything extra.
    MEDICARE FOR ALL, SINGLE PAYER! BERNIE 2020!

  4. Im not a fan of Zuckerberg, but I hate it even worse, how a once funny comedy show, has to over politicize everything. I could watch this show before the host changed and pretty much every topic became politically charged. Everyone just wants to talk shit while the world burns, instead of coming together to have meaningful conversations to bring change. I'm not blaming trevor, I'm sure hes just getting his paycheck to say what the writers gave him. USA is the best country in the world, change my mind.

  5. Trevor in his usual diplomatic way basically said there’s nothing sexist about the ad. This is one of those times when people are trying to be offended. For all they know this lady asked for a bike and got a higher end one than she’d expected. Maybe she used to bicycle and can’t manage it for one reason or another and complained that she’d lost all her muscle. There’s countless scenarios besides the assumption that exercise is for weight loss only. I only wish I’d taken up regular exercise when I was still thin. It’s a lot harder now that I’m not.

  6. Am I the only one who didn't think the Peloton commercial said what people think it did? I mean maybe she wanted it. Maybe she wanted to get back into fitness or to help break her out of a low period in her life. It's been proven that exercise can help people suffering from depression to breakout of downward spirals and help keep them in better moods by letting them setup goals for themselves.

  7. Unfortunately,Facebook members have surrendered their privacy and glued to it for life. They love to share their lives and activities with others,including strangers. However,whenever their postings are being abused by others,they cry foul.

  8. You pry was nervous they had trouble explaining himself because he knows every word will be analyzed by idiots like Trevor Noah and Stephen Colbert

  9. Facebook is the world’s largest social infrastructure disinformation service. Tried it for about a year, great! Friends and family. Then the insidious nature of the platform was revealed. Somewhere some databases are still tracking me. DJT recognizes its influence. Meeting with DJT revealed it is more insidious than ever. Zuckerberg is creepy now.

  10. Do these green jealous trolls work Fat trolls realize trolls realize that in order to stay remain skinny you do need to be physically active often and athletic

  11. Re the Peloton ad, if the message was supposed to be about using the bike to get more exercise for health improvement or stress relief or other reasons than losing weight, then the ad creators should have included something in the narrative to make that clear. Getting enough exercise–especially in cold climates (as shown in the ad) where people are less likely to just go for a walk or a run during inclement weather–is important, and certainly not everyone exercises with the goal of losing weight. But Peloton left far too much to the imagination to prevent the audience from jumping to "wrong" conclusions.

  12. The reason why the Zuckerbot looks so real is because it's outer shell is made of VirtuaSkin®, "I can't believe it's not skin!"
    But there is a clear uncanny valley effect, so it's not perfected yet.

  13. If you exercise regularly that ad was not offensive. How is a fit person exercising so offensive?! Ppl projecting their insecurities 😒

  14. i see lots of people commenting how, zuck is doing this and that…and facebook is bad. which one of you don't have or deleted your account from facebook. Im sure the answer is almost none of you. Take action not just say things. 🙂

  15. I agree, someone can get gifted a fricking bike cause they just wanted it. The generation now a days gets angry on the stupidest shit ever. I am thin and fit. I got gifted a gym membership. How is that wrong? Full disclosure, my white girlfriend gifted it to me as a brown guy and I am 22 years old.

  16. Zuckerberg meets with Trump in secret and won't ban fake political ads but bans Farrakhan from FB because he's dangerous?

  17. 0:02 No, faggotbook and it's not the largest anything except the largest gathering place of indian scammers. Loserbook equals indian scammers

  18. Zuck is lying. You can't be asked serious questions about this ridiculously moronic Prez and not at least betray a smirk or three.

  19. Man, people need to calm the fuck down. Maybe some people wanna lose weight because they really really wanna. Let em. In my own case,I don't exercise for weight loss, I do it for fun. If you feel attacked by a sports equipment ad then maybe you should take a serious look at yourself first.

  20. That’s because you all are cry baby bitches, if you can’t have it your way you throw a tantrum. Keep pushing left, and you guy’s will lose even worse in 2020.

  21. He lies !
    I will never go on Facebook again as long as he has anything to do with the company!
    This jack offs as bad as the Russian collaborators

  22. I am an Iraqi refugee and we do not have enough money to survive. I ask you to help me, just by subscribing to my channel, please.😢💔

  23. Skinny Wife After One Year: This Peloton has changed my life!!!

    Me: Bitch please! You look EXACTLY THE SAME so it changed NOTHING.

  24. Money is an addiction, once you get that first taste of wealth you want more, and then after the "high" wears off, you want more. And there's not a lot people like Trump wouldn't do to get that next hit.

  25. Your ratings are down & you seem to lack humor nowadays. Irrelevant is the word I feel best describes you, your show & this channel.

  26. All you fuckin leftists do is assume shit and make shit up. ALL YOU DO ON YOUR SHOW IS TALK SHIT ABOUT TRUMP, WHINE ABOUT TRUMP, CRY ABOUT TRUMP, AND THROW TANTRUMS OVER TRUMP. Dude, you're not even funny! Like, not even a little! That's why you have to have a laugh track! I hope your getting used to whining cause you're gonna be doing it for the next 4 yrs! 😂 #TRUMP2020

  27. "Are you going to remove false political adds."
    "No, we arent… you know I met with the president right."
    "Did he lobby you?"
    "We talked about human stuff and ate human food… he umm… human interactions."

  28. 😁😃🤣conspiracy between member of Illuminati (Mark Zuckerberg) and member of Freemasonry (Donald Trump) to worship DAJJAL/ANTICHRIST/FALSE MESSIAH, and ruling the world (One World Government)!!! 😁😃🤣👎👎👎

  29. Yea l mean the peloton thing was kinda ridiculous! So what? Only fat people could exercise? People dont just exercise to lose weight, they exercise to keep fit! Geez how could people be this stupid? 😂🙈
