Over the previous few years, The Daily Show’s Jordan Klepper has emerged as “the king of humiliating Trump followers,” as our personal Matt Wilstein put it.
Through the 2020 election, Klepper confronted rowdy (and maskless) Trump worshippers at one of many former president’s many packed pandemic rallies; pressed a lot of pro-Trump insurrectionists just before they stormed the Capitol; and bought into an animated back-and-forth with MyPillow guy (and Big Lie-peddler) Mike Lindell.
On Monday night, The Day by day Present aired extra eye-opening footage of Klepper clashing with people divorced from actuality—this time at an anti-vaccine mandate rally that befell outdoors New York Mayor Invoice de Blasio’s residence final week, with attendees clamoring over the mayor’s government order that efficient Aug. 17, indoor leisure (film theaters, museums, leisure venues, and many others.), indoor eating, and indoor health amenities would require proof of vaccination for entry.
One of many folks Klepper confronted down was Edwin De La Cruz, who’s operating 4 New York Metropolis Council on the Republican ticket. De La Cruz, clad in an ill-fitting go well with, claimed, “The science continues to be new. We nonetheless have query marks. We rushed the science,” prompting Klepper to fireside again, “We had been shifting at warp-speed… so Donald Trump rushed it.” De La Cruz had no response, and after stumbling, replied, “How about we swap locations and I begin attacking you?”
The wildest alternate concerned a a lady in a “F*CK CANCEL CULTURE” T-shirt. Klepper approached her and queried, “Perhaps you’ll be able to assist me out: I’m seeing indicators that say, ‘Vaccine Mandates Are Fascism,’ and in addition indicators that say, ‘Vaccine Mandates Are Communism.’ Which one is it?”
“It’s each,” she replied.
“It’s each? These are diametrically-opposed ideologies,” he countered.
“I don’t suppose it’s communism—I feel it’s extra like a dictatorship, like we’re residing in a Nazi Germany and the one factor that’s lacking is the camps and the fuel,” she argued.
“That’s what’s taking place proper now? As a result of you’ll be able to’t go to a live performance?” Klepper requested.
“I can’t go to a live performance… I can’t go to a gymnasium…” she reasoned.
“Do you suppose that’s what it was like in Nazi Germany? Folks had been bitching about not going to a gymnasium?” Klepper responded.
She was, understandably, speechless.
