11:00 pm
phyllis, phyllis! come on! you look like a clown. here. get me, get me! [crowd goes silent] ah! oh! for us getting back to normal. like i really want us to get back to normal. however, the one thing i didn't think we would rush back to so quickly is shaking hands. i don't know about you guys but i would have been fine if that never came back. i don't understand who was like pandemic! then i can't wait to get back to rubbing palms with a stranger. this is the first time i meet you, i don't know how you conduct yourself, but let my hand touch yours. yes, this is what we should be doing. guys, we invented a wave. i feel like the handshakes are the analog of greetings -- i don't know you till i feel you palm! hello, human! this is fine. fist bump.
11:01 pm
but this, this, this? no, trevor, i want to show you. i'll show you what i do with my hands one day and we'll see how much you want to shake my hands. >> coming to you from the heart of times square, the most important place on earth, it's "the daily show." tonight, china controls everything. fashion goes black. and davido! this is "the daily show" with trevor noah! >> trevor: hey! what's going on, everybody? i'm trevor noah and this is "the daily show." today is september 28th. let's kick things off in europe. it's asia's foreskin. right now one of its nations has finally entered the 21st 21st century. >> swirtsline has become one of the last countries in western europe to legalize same-sex marriage. more than 64% of voters approved the change in a referendum sunday. >> this is an historic day for switzerland, an historic day for
11:02 pm
equal rights of people of the same-sex who love each other. >> trevor: yay! congrats to everybody in switzerland! i mean not for legalizing same-sex marriage, but just for finally taking a position on something. this is great. finally in switzerland, no one has to hide their love. now they will be able to devote their full attention to hiding nazi gold. it is good to hear a country legalizing something most people assumed was legal a long time ago. the same feeling i had yesterday when they said r. kelly is convicted. i said, wait, that happened now? isn't that like ten years ago? so this wasn't a thing? it's weird that switzerland is so old fashioned of all places. they're the country that invented the world's most bangable cheese. you would think they would be loose. what? what are the holes for? why would they -- oh, wow. my bad.
11:03 pm
and you know, americans always assume europe is the most progressive place on earth until you see stuff like gay marriage being illegal in switzerland or france trying to ban hijabs. i think that's how powerful a european accent is. a european could be yelling slurs at an immigrant family and americans would hear them and be, like, wow, dude, what an enlightened man of culture, i've got to be better. but let's move on to the climate. it's no secret major climate disasters have been rising in the past decade from hurricanes to wildfires and even tweet storms. according to a new study, this new pace isn't slowing down anytime soon. >> an alarming new study is shedding light on the long-term effects of climate change. the study published in the journal overscience finds that the average 6-year-old will live through three times as many climate disasters as someone born in 1960, includes twice as many bieferldz, three times more river floods and two and a half
11:04 pm
times as many crop failures. the study says the average child will encounter seven times as many heat waves as their grandparents. >> trevor: yeah, this study says children will live through three times as many climate disasters. imagine that. luckily, they will only notice half of them because they will only be on tiktok day, but still... also the good news for these kids is they can finally one up their grandparents' my life was so hard stories! back in 55, there was a blizzard with snow up to your neck! >> bitch, that's an average tuesday. now give me my scoob aguirre, got to swim to school, dumb grandpa. but let's move on. the climate will kill us if we haven't killed ourselves. last year, we tried really hard to try to make that happen. >> the f.b.i. revealed today murder expwrumped 29% in 2020 compared to the year before the biggest increase since it began tracking the data six years sixs
11:05 pm
ago. more folks are forced to stay home because of covid lockdowns and increase in sun sales especially to first time buyers. property crimes were down for the 18th year in a row. one more reason, with more people at home, fewer houses are burglarized. >> trevor: this is not going to be a popular thing to say but this amount of murder actually seems reasonable to me, you know. i mean, think about it, people were stuck at home with their family and with their roommates 24-7 for a year! that's a year of snoring, chewing loudly, arguing about whose turn it is to wipe the amazon packages. i'm shocked everyone didn't kill everyone. at some point during the lockdown i bet murder just made sense. if i kill my roommate, i go to jail, but at least i'll have my own cell?
11:06 pm
oooh... and by the way, it's funny how people don't talk about murder the way they talk about covid deaths. have you noticed that? you don't have any deniers being, yeah, he was shot in his home but he was old and had heart disease. are we sure it was the wallet that did it? i'm just saying, i need to do my own research. moving to the top story, we all love technology, it's what lets us secretly watch our airbnb guests while we're out of town. we also recognize technology has unleashed a lot of social changes people are worried about. different countries have addressed these problems in different ways. in america, the government has talked a lot about regulating big tech, then taken huge campaign contributions from big tech and forgotten all about it. that's one approach. but one country has been taking much more drastic steps. and i'm talking about china. rising superpower and country
11:07 pm
that has held the world record for most chinese people for 4,000 years straight. china's government isn't hamstrung by annoying things like democracy or human rights, so when they see a problem, well, they go after it a whole lot harder. for example, cryptocurrency. everyone in the west is trying to figure out how to regulate cryptocurrency while respecting the free market. and now china's response is, uh, we have another idea. >> cryptocurrency is now illegal in china. today, china's central bank declared all transactions involving bitcoin and other virtual currencies illegal. it's the latest effort from china to block the use of the unofficial digital money. chinese officials say cryptocurrency disrupts the financial systems and leads to money laundering and other crimes. >> trevor: man, you know crypto has issues when the chinese government thinks it's too shady. they're like everything needs to be by the books when we're
11:08 pm
selling authentic larry view ton bags! crypto is used for crimes and money laundering. on the other hand, people who are not criminals have also invested their savings into it and china just got rid of it one day without any warning. bam! it's gone! this reminds me from the time i came home from school and my mom had thrown out my entire porn collection. wait, i don't want to say porn collection. let's do it again and say baseball cards. yeah. when my mom threw out my entire baseball card collection. yeah, that's better. it was a huge porn collection, though, man. oh, man, i miss it so much. but china isn't just worried about how its citizens spend their money, it's worried about how they spend their time. for example, people in china spend more time playing video games than any other country in the world, and now the chinese government is pulling the plug.
11:09 pm
>> kids in china will have their video game time greatly reduced not by mom and dad but by the chinese government. anyone under 18 is now limited to just an hour of online gaming per day on weekends and holidays between 8:00 and 9:00 p.m. all part of beijing's crackdown on gaming addiction. >> trevor: this is very short sighted of china, only three hours of video games a week? i mean, yeah, maybe your kids will get more fresh air and exercise, but they're going to grow up having no idea how to catch a pokémon! a few years from now those things will be overrunning the cities. the poke mon are everywhere! there's something we have to do to them all! but what are we going to do? this is rough news for chinese gamers, although this is great news for me. yeah? looks like you won't be beating me in war zone tonight wejang
11:10 pm
'cause you're not allowed to play till the weekend. guess i'm going to get my ass beat by a south korean teenager instead, bitch! ha ha ha! if you want to limit kids' screen time you just can't stop at video games. more and more they're spending time on social media apps like tiktok which is why china is bringing down the hammer on that, too. >> another tech crackdown for kids in china, doyin, a chinese version of tiktok, is limiting users under 14 years olded to only a few minutes a day. >> the app will be restricted to 6:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m., and inaccessible to users outside those hours. applies to all users registered with real names and age. >> trevor: wait, duyin is china's version of tiktok? i thought tiktok was china's version of tiktok? am i the only one who thought this? but this is bad news for duyin.
11:11 pm
i mean, if kids can only be online for 40 minutes a day, then the only people left on your app are going to be old people. let's be honest, you don't need two facebooks. look, i'm not one of those people who thinks china made tiktok so they could steal everyone's data and spy on their dance moves, but you have to admit it is a little weird they got the rest of us addicted, i've unwith in the world, then they turn to their kids, like, okay, you got to stop now. why? shhh, we'll tell you later. the rest of us are just there like -- but aside from video games and social media, there's another obsession that china is particularly nervous about and that's celebrity fan culture. you know how celebrities all have these rabid devoted fan bases like the swifties or the believers or the bay hive? i also have my own fan group, yeah, they call themselves the trevor noah fans. i mean, not a great name, you
11:12 pm
know. i suggested something more fun like the noah mads or simple lings. they got mad and doxed me. it's a very toxic community. china is worried about how out of control the groups are getting so they're clamping down on that, too. >> china is cleaning up its entertainment industry clamping down on what it calls difficult i don't care fan culture. >> millions of young fans loyal to actors and singers are a lucrative force in china's entertainment industry. now celebrity fan clubs have been the latest target of government regulators. authorities banned activities which encourage fans to spend money on favorite stars, online rankings and discussions about their salaries are also prohibited. state media newspaper the dploak times says fan clubs could be used to manipulate minds and split chinese society. >> trevor: whoa, whoa, people,
11:13 pm
people! if you ban the population from obsessively following celebrities, how will people -- how are people supposed to know what to buy, how to look or whose testicles are really swollen. do you know what you're doing here? i mean, look, i also get it from china's perspective. every minute chinese people spend idolizing celebrities is a minute they're not spending idolizing the communist party so xi jinping can either ban them or compete with them. let's be honest, competing with them is not going to work. anyway, for more on china's crack drown we're joined by our senior international correspondent dulce sloan. what's going on, dulce? >> hey, trevor. >> trevor: dulce, we sent you to china to see the terrible effects of this crack darn on the people there. what are you seeing on the ground? >> i tell you what i'm seeing, trevor, i'm seeing a two bedroom apartment in downtown shanghai because i'm moving to china!
11:14 pm
>> trevor: why would you want to move to china? they're going to control every aspect of your life! this is oppression! >> why because you can't spend ten hours a day playing video games anymore? good. i am sick and tired of meeting men who have more achievements in grand theft autothan real life. >> trevor: some of those achievements are really hard to get because -- >> or how about somebody who owns more property in minecraft than they do on earth? i thought we were at your house and now we got to be quiet because your momma is still up? come on, man, these days men want to play video games 24-7. all day they're, like, look behind you! nigger, your girlfriend is behind you. come on, man! >> trevor: maybe we do play too many video games but this crackdown goes beyond that. what do you say about the cryptocurrency ban? >> praise jeez, hallelujah, that's what i got to say. now when i'm out i don't have to be worried about listening to a
11:15 pm
loser talk about his doggy doin'. >> it's doje coin (pronouncing). >> it's a coin with a doge on it, don't make it fancy. >> trevor: one thing about you is you have a major crush on idris el ba. how are you going to feel when china tells you it's illegal to stand for id dries? >> i already gave id dries the best years of my life and what do i have to show for it? he's married to another woman. i'm glad she's black but the nerve! the nerve! >> trevor: dulce, he doesn't even know you! >> oh, exactly! if i had been living in china i would have wouldn't have this broken heart. i wasted time when i could be married to den easily. that's why china is my home. >> trevor: i don't know if you want to stay in china. >> yes, i do.
11:16 pm
china makes me want to start a family. the only reason i waited was id dries is so busy. but also, you know, kids always nagging you for stuff and i always have to say no. but with china, i don't have any strength. you want tiktok? china says no. want to play call of duty? china says no. you want a cake for your birthday? china says no. >> trevor: i don't think china has banned birthday cakes. >> yeah, well, i ain't baking no damn birthday cake, so your present is that you're still alive. anyway, i got to go. there's a bunch of chinese people here who think i'm oprah and i'm going to enjoy every minute of it. ( speaking chinese ) >> trevor: good luck in china. when we come back, roy wood, jr. is going to do a fashion show just for us. just for us. don't want to miss it.

new york fashion week just came to a close, and to help commemorate it in our own way, we turn to roy wood, jr. for another episode of "cp time." ♪♪ ♪♪ >> oh. hello there. welcome to "cp time." the only show that's for the culture. today, we'll be discussing black fashion models. we all know the famous ones,
11:21 pm
naomi campbell, tara banks, i iman, and myself. this had is gucci. this vest is armani, and my shirt is ross dress for less. you eat as much mustard as i do you can't be droppings more than $5 on a button-up. but none of us would be here without the pioneers who broke into the industry. models like naomi sims, the first black supermodel. as a young woman in the 18960s, modeling agencies told sims her skin was too dark to be a model. so she just went around the agencies and booked campaigns directly with fashion photographers. the best revenge is success. if that's not an option, drop dog doo-doo into their car through the sunroof. but i digress. sims graced the covers of many magazines which opened the doors for countless other black models
11:22 pm
like oprah winfrey who's on the cover of a magazine once a dang month. after sims left modeling, she made a fortune building a beauty empire featuring collections in cosmetics. she built her own venti before venti even existed. although like rihanna, she didn't have to deal all day long with people shouting at her, where's the damn album? seriously, though, rihanna, where is that album? of course, no black model was quite as groundbreaking as tracy norman, a closeted transgender woman who became a widely successful model, which wasn't easy to do in the '70s. norman booked her first gig with trickery. she followed models into a casting call for italian vogue and pretented she was a part of the group. a risky maneuver. one my uncle bevo successfully
11:23 pm
used to sneak on to the first trip to the moon. he's still up there, trying to sneak his way back. we miss you on earth, uncle bevo! 1975, norman became a model for clairol air dyes born beautiful campaign. the box she was featured on became the company's biggest seller for six straight years. after being outed as trans in the 1980s, she was no longer able to book gigs, which is absurd. if there was a problem with 1980s fashion, it wasn't trans women modeling. it was the leg warmers and the jheri curls and all those crazy patterns. spent half the decade in an epileptic seizure. but there is a happy ending. with public opinions shifting regarding the trans community, norman is finally getting her due.
11:24 pm
in 2016, clairol made her the face of their new ad campaign. that's right, clairol came crawling back -- like a bitch. finally, let's move on to tyson betford. arguably the most successful male fashion model ever. tyson was a modeling superstar of the 1990s, despite facing racism in the industry. he was almost mr. modeling gig because the person at the front desk thought that he was a delivery man, and sent him to the wrong location, which is absurd -- you ever see a delivery man looking like that, watch out! you're in a porno. beckford's success moved him beyond runway shows and print campaigns. he also appeared in music videos zooming around on a motorbike in britney spears toxic and zooming

11:28 pm
lactaid is 100% real milk, just without the lactose. so you can enjoy it even if you're sensitive to dairy. so anyone who says lactaid isn't real milk is also saying mabel here isn't a real cow. and she really hates that. my guest tonight is nigerian-american artist and
11:29 pm
producer davido. he's here to talk about his latest album and how one of his songs became a protest in nigeriaia against police brutality. davido, what's up, dude. >> thank you, sir. >> trevor: i fight with everyone about this. someone says it's it's david-o,d others say daveed-o. >> the western part of nigeria they say david-oo, and in the south david-o, and in europe daveed-o. but it's all good to me. >> trevor: just depending on where you are in the world. >> of course. >> trevor: i feel like you are lucky to have the ability to say that depending on where i am in
11:30 pm
the world. some people may not know you but millions do know you. you have millions of foe lowers on all your social media platforms. you have over a billion streams online. you have ascended to the upper echelons of afro beats which is the most dominant music now. >> i remember in 2016, when i first got my deal, in new york, i signed right here in new york, down the road in the sony building, and, you know, they were really not sure what the sound would be like, and i told them, i said, you guys might not understand now, but in a couple of years, this is going to be one if not the biggist, one of the biggest genre's in the world. i did parts of the snong alabama and i remember, you know, back then one of my favorite bands from south africa was freshly
11:31 pm
ground. >> trevor: right. >> and nigeria. i was young, i went to the college at 16. so i remember in my dorm room, they're, like, yo, what's that? those drums is going hard! they sound good! so eventually, you know, it was appreciated. >> trevor: you know what i've appreciated about independent is the sense of pride that it has instilled in africans. for a long time, you know, i know as a south african, we always have this infear auditory complex. we were, like, oh, america is better than us. the u.k. is better. everything was better than us in africa. so even our music started to slowly morph into trying to copy what was overseas. >> exactly, yeah. >> trevor: but i've always gone like no matter who you are in africa, you have to admit nigerians are the most confident on the planet. nigerians are like, no, our music will take over the world. what else it about minoringia
11:32 pm
that you think made that possible? >> i want to shout out to the nigerians in the diaspora. the africans who live not in nigeria, the ones in america, europe, london. >> trevor: i bumped into nigerians in russia. >> anybody in the world -- i love this table -- everybody in the world has a nigerian friend. >> trevor: definitely. >> i think even in atlanta with my music, personally, it kind of started from atlanta -- it started from nigerians being in the club and telling the deejays, like, yo, i want to spend $50,000 today. but play davido's music. >> trevor: wow. it was a deep love for the music. >> yeah, just from that. and then it got to, yo, we're in
11:33 pm
a club, a female goes to the deejay, yo, play this song. people in the diaspora, doing that for us, and then us coming -- >> trevor: right. >> i remember in 2013, sold out every venue, sold out every venue, that this is without exposure. >> trevor: right. >> so i remember live nation calling my -- the company calling my manager like yo, what's going on? >> trevor: who is this guy? >> we don't know this guy. he's come from america, done 20 shows, sold out. i give shout out to the people who support us. >> trevor: i feel you, man. >> nigerians, i don't know what it is but they don't play with us. >> trevor: you know, what i appreciate is how interconnected it has all become. one of the most, you know, glaring examples of this was during the george floyd movement in america, it swept the globe. you started seeing people protesting in paris, london and
11:34 pm
then one of the biggest protests happened in nigeria. it was the end sars movement. this was huge. people were going, you know, nigerians coming out saying we demand more from our government, our police, and your song -- >> crazy. >> trevor: -- it was a song you had written about your haters but it became the anthem of the movement. >> yeah. >> trevor: i think it also changed something in you as a person and artist because you became very outspoken. >> i did not record that song thinking that was going to happen. >> trevor: right. >> that's the honest truth. it's amazing how i saw my voice be an instrument for people. it was amazing. i got in a lot of trouble. >> trevor: i can only imagine. >> i got in a lot of trouble. i had to actually leave the country, it was that bad. i got in a lot of trouble because -- >> trevor: yeah, yeah, yeah. >> put, you know what i'm saying, it was amazing to see people come on like that. i'll say this -- they listened. they heard us.
11:35 pm
they might not have changed nothing, but they were shook. >> trevor: that is amazing. >> you know what i'm saying. i hope, you know, i see a lot of young future leaders coming up in the next general elections coming up, which we have to do, but things are going to change. >> trevor: my dude, with people like you leading the charge with artisan musicians getting in the conversation, with, as you say, the diaspora communicating with each other, anything is possible. >> sure. >> trevor: thank you for joining hi on the show, coming out, congratulations on your global citizens appearance, amazing to see you doing that. i know you will be on the show in the u.s. i'm coming to your shows. >> i'm coming to yours. >> trevor: thank you so much. i appreciate you. >> thank you for what you're doing for africa. >> trevor: my dude. >> we'll keep doing it. >> trevor: don't forged, davidoo's album is available now. we'll take and there you have it-

( laughter ) ♪ ♪ >> respect charlamagne. you know what i mean? ruffling feathers. i know his stance. charlamagne known for being honest. ♪ just made another one ♪
11:39 pm
♪ ♪ [applause] >> yeah! hey, welcome to "tha god's honest truth." my name is charlamagne tha god, my mama named me lenard mckelvey. act like you like me. come on. [applause] now, last week we discussed america's need for "decrackerfication." for those just joining us the class, "decrackerfication" is simply ready in america of its white supremacist bowl. i've seen two sentiments about "decrackerfication." one, people of all races agreed with the fact that america needs to be "decrackerfy." and people wondering how long i'm going to last talking this reckless on the white man's airways. i'm in business with good white
11:40 pm
people, and a gwp's, they don't like crackers either. that's right. plus, "decrackerfication" of america benefits us all because because -- you should enjoy rubbing races the wrong way is much as i do. you know why my skin look so clear? it's actually because i exfoliate with bigoted backlash. point is, i like to talk healing. and in the words of blue ivy's father, you can't heal what you don't reveal. that needs to be on a t-shirt by the way. it's impossible to have an internal reckoning of a country without the internal reckoning of its white supremacists i institution spitzer tonight, we are putting the federal bureau of of investigation under investigation. he said it best, only the feds i fear. so if i have an anxiety attack during the show, you know why.
11:41 pm
but what do the feds do besides scare your favorite rappers? the broad definition is, they gather, share, and analyze intelligence to better understand and combat the security threats facing the united states. which is nuts considering the fbi seems to be constantly confused on who is actually a domestic terrorist threat. according to "the new york times," it is white supremacists. but since they don't know, let's help them out. can we help them out? a little call and response. i'm going to ask you some basic questions, you tell me who you think the domestic terror threat is. black panthers or the kkk? you hesitated, that should've been easy. black lives matter or the proud boys? >> proud boys! >> i'm going to give you a tough one. hennessey or do say? all right. you had way too much passion for that last question okay. by the way, that is nothing to do with nothing, i just wanted to know what to drink later in
11:42 pm
tthe show. >> hennessey! [indistinct] speak up okay. back to the matter at hand. somehow of the thousands who stormed to the capitol on january 6th, only 649 of them were charged with any crime. and only half were charged with felonies. if an attempted coup of this country isn't a federal offense, then what is? we suffer the consequences of not "decrackerfy" america. these institutions were established back when they had little to no rights. so who are these institutions designed to protect? the white man system isn't built to prosecute the white man, okay. i know. and the fbi reminded us once again just last week when simone

biles bravely testified in front of congress. queen simone testified that the fbi turned a blind eye to the years of abuse that she experienced at the hands of larry nasser. when the fbi had the chance to protect children or protect nasty nast, they chose team a nasty nasty. >> we continue to suffer because no one at the fbi or the u.s. opc did what was necessary to protect us. we have been failed and we deserve answers. >> yes, the fbi failed. but we shouldn't be surprised that an institution that was never designed to protect black people and women is not protecting black people and women. especially considering that the institution itself barely includes, you guessed it, black people and women. according to 2019 federal data of the almost 14,000 special agents, only 20% were women. and even less, 4% are black. think about how low that it is. if you are stranded somewhere right now with only 4% battery

[applause] that is a fact. after mike brown's murder in 2014, the fbi labeled black protesters who were protesting against the killing of an unkamunarmed black man. he was sentenced to four years in federal prison for leaking documents detailing the agencies unchecked boys 9/11 power that allowed agents to violate the own rules against domestic spying. it's no surprise black people don't trust the feds to protect them.

come on, man. trust and the fbi is like trusting that when you get to mcdonald's the ice cream machine will be working. come on. [applause] i've got some better ones, hold on. black people seeking justice from the feds is like getting marriage advice from the o.j. simpson couples therapy center. this is a doozy. black people trusting the fbi would be like an ovulating woman trusting nick cannon to pull o out. listen, listen, listen. listen. these institutions are doing exactly what they were built to do. protect the interests of white men. now, the current director of the fbi, chris christopher a. wray s going to make sure. is what, we are going to hold you to it. when we come back, i will tell you exactly where to start. ♪ ♪
