and then lickin' some toads. [laughs] - oh, no, dude. i don't-- i don't wanna get down with that stuff, man. but i appreciate the offer, though, bro. - oh, no? see, i like the drugs, i do. - yeah, listen, man. whatever-- to each his own, you know? - can i ask you a question? the three people that are waiting to talk to you right now-- what do they look like? is it three of the ninja turtles? - uh, i think there's four ninja turtles, brother. - i know, i was asking you if it was three of them. maybe donatello stayed home to get some work done. - i--i don't think donatello likes the rain. so that would make sense. but bro, i got a few people i gotta take care of, okay? - yeah, me too. i got a bunch of people over here trying to [bleep] shit up with me. so i'ma go do that, i guess. i got my buddy stank drawers, my buddy cash money, my friend matt calf, he's the one with the weed.

[upbeat music] [laughing]
1:17 am
say hi to shredder for me! comedy central >> trevor: hey, what's going on, everybody, i'm trevor noah and this is the daily social distancing show. today is wednesday, june 16th. and people, i'm just going to put it out there man, i'm devastated. right now watching the news coming out of the nba playoffs is so us from traiting. everybody is injured. kie ree irving is out with a twisted angle. cawee leonard out with a twisted need. what the hell is happening, if the nba loses any more stars the playoffs will be unwatchable. i don't care what anyone says, stars matter, without them, it will be like watching a fast and the fur yution starring the guy without does the oil change. and yes, i know he is important, the car can't drive without him but i want to see vin diesel bench press while using his foot to drive a car. the fba has to do whatever it can to prevent stars from getting hurt, do something. i don't care what, force feed
1:18 am
vitamins, cover them in bubble wrap, whatever it takes. and yeah they will be barely able to move but at least they will be on the court. i just want them on the court, i want to see dunk, shot, you can't have-- anyway, on tonight's show. president biden and vladimir putin have the most most summit ever. the capitol riots is finding another way into congress and weill we'll find out the difference between black farms and white farms, and now, no, it is not just a seasoning. let's do this, welcome to the daily social distancing show. from trevor's couch in new york city to your couch somewhere in the world. this is the daily social distancing show with trevor knowa. all right, let's kick things off with joe biden. president of the united states and man whose blood stream is 60%-- all this week biden has been on a diplomacy tour of europe. and today was his big summit
1:19 am
meeting with russian president and man strangling you with a wire right now vladimir putin. so let's see how it all went down in another installment of grandpa a day out. president biden is en route back to the u.s. after his high six summit today with russian president a putin. both leaders agreed the tone of the meeting was positive. however deep divisions remain. >> this is not a kumbaya moment as you used to say in the '60s, back in the u.s., let's hug each other. >> let me tell you, there is no happiness, there is is only the spector of happiness. >> trevor: what happened in there people. they hold a bilateral meeting. putin got tough man although to be fair russian are a bleak people in general. in life there is no happiness. that's basically how russian soccer moms say live shall
1:20 am
laugh, love. but there was some substance that came out of this summit. for instance, biden says that he told putin that certain critical infrastructure should be off limits to cyber-attacks and he even gave putin a list of 16 specific things not to attack. look, i get the idea of giving your enemies a red line that you warn them to never cross but you have to admit it has got to be a bad look when they go to the places that didn't make the cut. now before everyone gets mad about what happened to st. louis i gave putin a free pass on that, so ha ha, that's kind of on me, but in my defense, number 17, they were number 17, everybody. moving on. let's violate florida law and talk about slavery. as many people now know slavery in the u.s. officially ended when the south surrendered at the end of the civil war. but many enslaved people didn't find out for two more months. and now the celebration of that day, juneteenth is close to
1:21 am
officially joining memorial day, thanksgiving and casual cry in the american holiday pantheon. >> a major move in the snant yesterday unanimously passing a bill to establish juneteenth as a federal holiday des des-- designating june 19th, 20201, in recognize of june 19th, 1865 the date in which news of the end of slavery reached slaves in southwestern states. >> trevor: wow, that is almost unbelievable. the senate just voted for juneteenth to be a national holiday by a huge bipartisan mar-- margin. and this my friend is why i love america's government. it has all the old republicans who are like we've got to stop talking about slavery. quit talking so much about it all the time. i'll take some time off for slavery, hell yeah. but no, seriously, i know some people are surprised that the
1:22 am
gop was on board for this but of course republican senators support juneteenth. they love to celebrate the end of slavery. to them that is the happy ending in the story of racism. but whatever the motivation, this is a nice moment for america. and yes, i have heard people point out that america seems much more willing to offer symbolic gestures instead of actual solutions like reforming the police or ending discrimination in the workplace. but i don't don't think symbolism is nothing, they are a big part of america and can have real world effect. the same way celebrating martin luther king day raises awareness on his legacy and cause. or how president's day reminded americans that they forgot to vote for president back in november. you better believe because it's a holiday some frat boys are going to be celebrating juneteenth in a completely different way. >> yo, happy jeunt teent, bro, you ready. chug, chug, chug.
1:23 am
nobody knows, trouble i seen. nobody knows chug chug chug chug. ♪ so yeah, maybe in some ways it twoo have been better if juneteenth had stayed one of those things that only black people know about, you know. like carmichael cross trainers or dj amaretto or whiskey cups. don't worry black people, i was just making a bunch of those things up to throw white people off the trail, celebrate juneteenth, go now, go now. yeah, those whiskey cups. and finally, some political news. five months ago you may remember that protestors stormed the u.s. capitol. hoping to overturn the election and that they should also be a show called whitish, now one of the rioters is planning to return to the scene of the crime. >> a new hampshire man facing charges for his part in the january 6th riot at the capitol is now hoping to go back to washington as an elected official.
1:24 am
>> you might remember riddell after seeing this photo. he is the man from keene, new hampshire to admitted to entering the capitol building on january 6th and chugging from a bottle of wine he found in a lawmaker he office. >> what does being at the riots do for your campaign? >> tell them i show up. i am going to actually keep my primeses and make them change it. >> he says is he running against democrat annie kuster in the 2022 mid-term election. kuster is currently in her fifth term as a u.s. congresswoman representing new hampshire's second district. >> i thought ann was a state representative. >> no. >> so a state rep is in the state house in concord. >> yeah, that is what ann is. >> no, no, she's in washington. >> oh, i guess i got to run against that then. >> so washington it is. >> trevor: oh boy. there goes the media again, always with the gotcha questions. what are you running for? what state is that in? how many fingers am i holding
1:25 am
up? jay, guys, i know it is shocking but it turns out the guy who thought he could overturn the election by breaking into the capitol and chugging wine doesn't have a supersolid grasp of the political process. i mean think about it, this dude is going to run for congress? he's a dangerous extremist who is completely unqualified and unprepared. so yeah, he will fit right in. but that's not the point. like what is his first role even going to be like, he will shoip at the office, smash his way through the window. i'm back! honestly there is a small part of me that hopes this guy does get elected because that means when the next insurrection happens he will see what it is like to be on the other side. oh, i appreciate the irony now. but let's move on now to our top story. the 1.9 trillion dollar relief bill that joe biden signed into law earlier this year had money for everything. from covid vaccines to stimulus checks, to a year's subscription
1:26 am
to biden's onlyfans. and it it also gave $4 billion in loan forgiveness to black farmers. which it turns out not everyone is happy about. >> joe biden spent billions of dollar are-- sent billions of dollars to african-american farmers purely because of how they look. that is illegal, it is immoral t is completely divisive. >> it not a bill for black farmers, it is a bill against white farmers. >> i don't think they understand their business one bit. nobody asks you what race you are when you to fert leadser. >> white farmers need not apply by virlt u of the color of their skin. >> the democratic party is becoming the party of reverse racism. >> farmers are being denied aid solely because of their skin color, in this country you do not punish people because they look a certain way, because their ancestors come from a certain place, because if the government has the power to destroy a business because of how someone looks, what is next,
1:27 am
put someone in jail because of how they look? i mean what if they make it illegal to look like a testicle that just escaped a scrotum, just as an, ample. but it isn't just fox news gar goils upset about this aid to black farmers. plas week a federal judge blocked the aid from going into effect while a lawsuit from white farmers proceeds through the court system. you might be hearing this story for the first time and wondering wait, why should black farmers get special treatment. are their cows the ones that make chocolate milk? >> well, yes, but fla is not why. real reason is something we're going to explore in another edition of if you don't know, now you know. >> when you picture a farmer in your head, what do you see? close your eyes and think about it.
1:28 am
oh yeah, probably a guy3in overalls standing next to a tractor, chewing on a piece of hey, or vaping, if he is trying to quit, let's be honest, you can open your eyes, that farmer in your head is also probably a white guy. but you may be surprised to learn that there was a time in america when farming was an as popular among black people as telfar bags. >> by force and by choice, black people have long, diseep connections to american farmland as it befalls slavery, owning a piece of land that could be worked and farmed, symbolized freedom. >> during reconstruction black folks saved their money, they worked together as a family, as a cooperative and bowlt land that allowed black families to build communities, 16 million acres. >> at the peek of black farm ownership around 1920, maybe about 15 persz of farmers-- percent of farmers were african-americans. >> a place where you could not vote, one way that black folks
1:29 am
were able to exert power was having some control over the land under their feet. >> trevor: that's right. back in the day, 15 percent of all american farmers were black. and that is the kind of representation that golden globes can only dream of. it is true there weren't a lot of other professions in the 1920s, back then it was basically just farming, telegraph prailter and crash landing airplanes but it nakes sense that farming would be especially appealing to black people. because owning anything was incredible for black people back then. because don't forget, just a generation before that, black people were considered property. property. i mean imagine if your grandad was a tv and now you own a whole tv company, that's success. so if there were so many black farmers back in the day, what happened to them all? did somebody finally tell them about sports? no, it turns out it was
1:30 am
america's age old friend, systemic racism. >> white folks recognized pretty early on that one way to stop the civil rights move am, one way to undercut it was to get rid of land ownership. >> over the last century america's black farmers have lost more than 90% of their land because of systemic discrimination and a cycle of debt. >> the u.s. department of agriculture has a long history of discrimination, a study commissioned by the usda found that loans to black male farmers were 25% lower than those given to white male farmers on average. >> for decades the u.s. department of agriculture systemically favored white farmers by denying loans to black farmers. and discrimination was widespread at its local branches which were largely run by all white county committees. >> many black farmers would coming into the office and the local official would say we don't have any money available. and when white farmers came in, they would process their loans, less than 30 days and for black farmers it took 387 days on
1:31 am
average. >> we fill out the papers, and then they would just take the paperwork and just throw it in the trash. >> without the same access to funds, black farmers struggled to keep up with their white competitors, and are often forced out of business. >> we're talking 177 to 230 billion dollars that black farmers have lost because of active discrimination. >> trevor: that's right, for decades the usda actively discriminated against black farmers giving them smaller loans than white farmers or outright refusing to give them loans all together. and that is according to the usda. that is like digging up your own and canceling yourself. go away, me, but that is how bad this discrimination was. and farming is hard enough on its own. think about t you got pests, you've got drought, ghosts trying to get you to build a baseball field. last thing you need is for the federal government to be up against you. and after decades of discrimination, black farmers had had enough.
1:32 am
and so they took their complaints right to the top. >> black farmers first pick eted the department of agriculture in 1996, about 50 showed up with a pair of mules and a wagon. protesting racial discrimination, thousands had sent in complaints but found the civil rights office at the usda had been closed for years and boxes of their letters remained unopen. >> in 1999 thousands of black farmers settled a historic class action discrimination lawsuit against the usda in a landmark case call pigford ver whrik mfnlt the government refused to say up to-- many eving 50,000 each. >> the vast majority never received a dime. an overwhelming number of farmers were dubbed late filers, when their applications trickled to office in-boxes after a 180 day deadline. >> tense of thousands of black farmers claimed they did not receive proper notification of the settlement.
1:33 am
>> for so many of them, it's been red tape and setbacks ever since. 11 years of splitting time between the fields and capitol hill, staging protests, even riding trackers through downtown dc to get attention from congress. >> trevor: now this, this is how you protest. riding tractors and mules into downtown d.c., not only are you bringing attention to your cause, but riding a mule is the one time a cop can't pull you over for a busted tail light. >> and they had to take some extreme measures. because if anyone knows bullshit it was farmers and this was befl some bullshit. the government basically admitted that it owed the farmers money, but then bogged them down in red tape. let me tell you something, machine, if you lose a lawsuit, the hearing should end with the bailive marching you to the atm to watch you withdraw that money. oh, oopsie, looks like i forgot my pin, oh well. it is your birthday back awards,
1:34 am
man, just do it. now the government tried to fix things in 2011 by providing some more funding to black farmers. but unfortunately, it came too late for many of them and it still fell far short of the economic losses they had suffered at the hands of the usda. so the next time you hear people talking about how black farmers are getting extra special treatment from the government, think about the treatment that they have brch getting for the last 100 years. and you know, some of the people who are upset about this loan forgiveness, they might not even know that all of this discrimination even happened. and that's why we decided to update the most famous song about farmers to better express the black farming experience. old black donald had a farm couldn't get a loan. ♪ now the only farm he's got. ♪ is on his mobile phone. ♪ cuz racism here, racism there.
1:35 am
here a racist, there a racei, old black donald had a farm. ♪ now he works at kohl's. >> i'm on my break! >> trevor: all right, when we come back i will be talking to best selling author and one of oprah's favorites ashley c ford. don't go jason, did you know geico could save you hundreds on car insurance and a whole lot more? cool. so what are you waiting for? mckayla maroney to get your frisbee off the roof? i'll get it. ♪ (upbeat music) ♪ ♪ ♪ whoa. here you go.

1:38 am
daily social distancing show. my first guest tonight is new york times best selling author ashley c ford. she is here to talk about her new memoir about her childhood and the trauma of growing up with an incarcerated parent. ashley c ford, welcome to the daily social distancing show. >> thank you so much for having me. it's my pleasure. >> you are so many people's favorite writer. some people know from you twitter but now many more people know you from your book that is a new york times best seller. somebody's daughter. and it is not just new york
1:39 am
times best seller but new york times best seller that has a really prominent fan by the name of oprah winfrey. what is more impressive? being pub will bed and being a new york times best seller or having oprah as a fan of the book. >> oh, you trying to get me in trouble. >> honestly, let's talk about just personally, okay. i knew who oprah was before i knew what "the new york times" was. >> okay. >> and so got to say in my heart it means a lot that oprah is on board. >> i can imagine. i mean i understand why everybody is on board. you have the story where you share your journey as a young girl growing up in a black family where your father was incarcerated for 30 years, when you were still a baby at the age of one. so you live your entire life without this man in the family, not even truly understanding how much the family suffers from this. you have a mother who is giving up everything to raise you and your family. and at the same time, you talk about how she was verbally
1:40 am
abusive and what your relationship was like with her. how hard was it for you and why did you think it was necessary to explain to the reader how tough her life was, what her experiences were, but then still be in a position to say oh, but she didn't, you know, give me what i needed all the time as a child in an emotional sense. >> you know, when i set out to write this book, one of the things that was really important to me was that nobody was truly a hero or a vilan. in the course of the book because i wanted to write something that was true. and something that was real and the truth of the matter is, you know, superhumans, superheroes are called super for a reason and it is because they are separated from their humanity. and we are not. we are human beings 24/7 all the time every day. which means our capacity for human good and human evil is always, always, always on the same spectrum, nobody gets out
1:41 am
of that. nobody gets away from that. and i think that it is time especially in communities like the community that i come from, where i was raised, that we can share complicated stories about our lives and about each other, and understand that it is not stripping us of our power or our agency or our humanity to do so. it is affirming it it is validating it. because the more we pretend that you know, all good people have never done a bad thing, and all bad people have never done a good thing, the more we are sewing a division within ourselves that is unsustainable. >> one of the more heart-wrenching examples of that in the story is of your father's journey in your life. your father was incarcerated for communitying rape. and he was guilty of it, and you had this really complicated relationship with him because here is this man who is your
1:42 am
father, who is not just done something heinous but also abandoned your family because of his actions. and yet you talk about your journey of having to learn how to forgive him. and i mean how do you even begin to forgive somebody like that, especially when you vnlt known them your entire life. >> you decide what you can forgive them for. and what forgiveness means to you. i knew that i could not forgive my father for what he did to someone else. that is not my place. that is not my goal, that is not my intent it can't be done in reality. but i knew that i could forgive him for how his actions had affected my life. and the life of the people i know and how that indirectly affected me and effects us all now. and you know, my definition of fore difficultness is pretty purely giving up on the idea that things could have been different, knowing that things are what they are.
1:43 am
accepting reality. and i accept the reality of who my father is and what he has done. i accept the complexity of his humanity and i had to do that to be perfectly honest so that i could accept mine it is all in a circle, all the ways that i could have or know, in some people's mind should have punished him for his actions, would have been funnish-- punishing me too. and i don't deserve that. i'm worthy of more than that. >> trevor: a lot of us have been taught to be ashamed of the things that we've experienced in life that have happened within our families. so we create a fa sad, everyone is having a fa sad and when a moment or reality becomes exposed, we then shame the person or that person is ashamed when in fact many people are experiencing similar things. how did that feel to you and how do think we can heal as a society by addressing these things more openly. >> well, you know, the first thing i would say really quickly
1:44 am
is that shame thrives when it is alone. that is why people attempt to isolate you in your shame. that is why they try to bring a group and say none of us believe you, or all of us believe this around you or all of us have decided that you are no longer part of whatever, so that they can stand together and make you feel alone. are you not alone, are you never alone because there are no emotions or experiences that you get as a human being that no other human being in the world has access to, except for the americans of your consciousness and your mind, but everything else you have been through, everything else you feel, that human emotional spectrum, we all have it, we all get it, there is nothing wrong with you for having feelings about something that happened to you. and secretarily, the thing i would say is that none of us absolutely none of us are going to be okay until we can talk about what hurts.
1:45 am
so the sooner we start having those conversations, the better. because we only get so much time, and i want us to be able to spend it well together knowing that we're not alone. >> well, i will tell you this, anyone who reads the book, who has lived the life will relate to your life in some way shape or form, ashley c ford, thank you for joining me on the show, hopefully i will see you again on the next book about post therapy and the joy you experience in your world. >> i'm working on it. >> ashley's book, somebody's daughter is available right now. all right, when we come back i will be talking to the host of one of the hottest new shows on the scene, sam jay. you don't want to miss it you ready? ready? ready. - ready hold on. ready. are you ready? yeah!

daily social distancing show. my next guest is an emmy nominated writer and comedian sam jay, she is here to talk about her brand new hbo series. >> of course, i think about okay, yo, i'm a lesbian, i'm a
1:51 am
stud, there was still some hesitation, still someone straddling the fence. i didn't know if people around me were going to accept or allow me to be this iteration of myself. >> i don't know if everybody knew that. you saying that outloud is important because most people would look at you and go like. >> no, no, no. >> what did you think. >> i don't know, i just thought people were going to be like what the [bleep] are you doing, you know. >> trevor: sam jay, welcome to the daily social distancing show. >> hey man, what is up. >> trevor: it is really an honor to have you here. because there are many comedians who i appreciate as being funny but there are few comedians who i enknee-- envy when i watch their stuff, always comedians where i think i could in ever have thought of that or done that, you have always been one of those comedians, that is probably the reason netflix said we want you to make a special, probably one of the reasons snl said we want you to come on the show and write and probably one of the reasons hbo max said we want you to make a show unlike any other which is exactly what
1:52 am
you did. first of all, let's start with the title, pause, it seems like the antithesis about what you want a show to be about because it seems like it has so much thrust, so why pause with sam jay. >> i thought about it, and when we were kind of coming up with names we were throwing stuff at a wall, and pawses just seemed to be two things. i thought it was a funny double entrend re on how it is kind of you to say chill out on gay stuff and especially the black community. and i thought that was luke a little cheeky way to play with that. and then the other side of it was i feel like that is what the show is asking people to do. i think it's asking people to take a beat and hear another perspective, take a beat and consider another angle than just your own. i feel like it was kind of serving two purposes if that way. >> what is also cool about the show is it genuinely feels like your hangout. i mean you've got people drinking. you've got music playing in the background. you've got clouds of smoke everywhere. people are speaking freely, it
1:53 am
almost feels like you tricked hbo into paying for you to throw parties with your friends. that is what it really feels like. >> a little bit. , it's a little bit of that. i don't-- i remember we were like yeah, this is going to be-- hang is good but we have to put some substantial things into it, or we will feel like we just tricked hbo into paying out. and so it is a little bit of that, but i do think that hangs are, where you get honesty, you know what i mean, i feel like whenever i'm taking it, i'm not getting these prepackaged twitter answers or-- you know, prestaged ideas much what the world. is i think when your ticketing is hanging, people are maybe not afraid to say something they are not necessarily supposed to say because everybody's guard is down, i think something of the show does well, it truly is a hang with my friends. everybody who comes is somebody i know t is not just people we are picking out of the sky.
1:54 am
and i think it sets up a level of comfort ability, you know, and i always kind of have just been a person who is open to other people's ideas and opinions. i think it is easy for people to get into the flow of the party, and just have a good time. and because there is no ill intent in the show, there is no gotcha moment. even in the interviews that were separate from the party, i think people are more willing to just be honest because everyone is kind of being honest. so it is not like any particular person is being called out. >> funny you say that, i remember watching the first episode, okay, these people are amazing actors or this is a slice of her life. even the way you speak, it doesn't seem like it is scripted it in anyway, it doesn't seem like it is scripted out. for instance, you throwing out the "n" word, that is just how you speak. i remember talking to a friend of mine, an older comedian, older black man, i said have you seen the show t is amazing. he say i love that, sam is one the funniest people i ever seen, but boy, she uses the "n" word, man she says that n word.
1:55 am
>> yeah, for sure. and it is how i actually speak, you know. and i did think about t of course, i knew there would be some criticism behind it and i had to consider like do i want to try to change my speech for the show. and i actually made a really strong decision not to do that. because i felt like one, i speak like how the people that i came up with, the people from my neighborhood, that i grew up with, my friends, we all speak this way. and i didn't want to act like we didn't. and i also didn't want to present something to the world that says if someone speaks this way then they are not intelligent or you shouldn't listen to their opinion or take in consideration what they are saying, you know what i mean. and also didn't want to put on a different suit and have my friends and people i come with like yo, in order to make it, i can't be me. i got to be some other version of myself. you know what i mean. but i also do like, i get the criticism and especially when i get it from older black people.
