shocking new evidence suggests that the first thanksgiving might also have been haunted! - there is certainly no evidence that the first thanksgiving dinner was not haunted. - the pilgrims welcomed the indians, but did they also unknowingly welcome spirits from beyond the grave? - ohhhh! - oh, come on! -- there comedy central's world news headquarters in new york, this is the daily show with jon stewart. chooers plaus (cheers and applause) >> jon: welcome to the daily show. my name is jon stewart. we have a tremendous show planned for you this evening. we is prepared it with the greatest of the care, the greatest of love, our guest tonight a young acker named
carol. (laughter) carell, steve carell. not familiar but i hear he's good. (laughter) but first, last night we poked a little fun at the apec summit in beijing for making world leaders wear goofy clothes and displaying what i believe pyrotechnic officials refer to as fireworks out the yinyang. (laughter) but fair's fair. there were some results. >> president obama and president xi jinping of china announced a major deal on climate change. >> the world's two biggest polluters agree to reduce their carbon emissions. >> jon: oh pie god, that's-- i had no idea that was going to happen. less carbon emissions from the two of the world's largest polluters. this calls for a celebration. no, that-- no, that-- no, no, no. the fireworks things is actually working-- okay.
i think this deal is going to call for a bit of a cultural shift. but listen, great, so obviously you can't do anything real about the environment without china on board. which brings us to our next issue. >> chinese gangs are being accused of smuggling huge amounts of ivory from tanzania, with the official of their officials. >> chinese embassy staff were major buyerses of the ivory. the consignments were sent to china in diplomatic bags on the presidential plane. >> jon: ivory sent in diplomatic bags. what-- what is that in my bag? nothing-- no, it's not an el fant's tusks, it's a giant dildo. (laughter) >> jon: not made of ivory. i have this thing for incredibly oversized
dildoes. if you will excuse me, the punisher and i have to catch a plane. how you could, china! providing a market for illegal poachers. i don't know how you, china, can even look at yourself in your incredibly intricately carved ivory. what kind of soul of a country with be the largest retail market. >> the united states is the second largest retail market for elephant ivory. >> hello. (laughter) wait, how can that possibly be? unless the i stands for ivory. (laughter) i always thought it was-- needless to say our insatiable hunger for ivory trinkets, did you enjoy that, our in-- insatiable hunger for ivory trinkets is having a catastrophic impact on the ivory's original owners.
>> 100,000 elephants were killed for their tusks over just three years. the animals have reached a tipping point. with more elephants killed each year than those being born. if it continues, they will be wiped out. >> jon: all right. we have two options, people. either we as humans can decrease our consumption of ivory by no longer buying trinkets we don't even need. for an elephant to use that and start shooting out pups like-- i mean chop chop, will fants, your careers can wait. come on. start [bleep] come on! look, clearly we're to the going to save elephants because it is the right thing to do. that's just not us. so sweeten the pot. what's in it for us, the tuskless. >> terrorist groups have another source of fast cash to buy guns and fund the
rest of their illegal activities. they're slaughtering african elephants and selling the ivory tusks for a lot of money. >> only 1.6 tusks would be required to fund a spectacular double terrorist attack on two embassies in east africa. >> jon: so you're saying elephants can keep us from being vk dk -- can speed us being victims in a terrorist attack. we will take off our shoes at airports to prevent terrorism, surely we can stop buying souvenir ivory figurines made in the likeness of the ivory donor. apparently ivory money is funding almost every civil war, genocidal militia and terrorist group in africa, from al shabaab to boko haram. this didn't we ban ivory imports if in 1989, to which i would say-- (laughter) i was not aware of that.
but we did. we did ban it but that will be loopholes in it. >> you have been able to walk the streets of new york and find ivory for sale. >> if you are a cop and say i think your ivory is illegal, the first thing that the ivory seller will say to you is no, no, no, mine is antique. >> jon: oh, antique ivory is grandfathered, that is the loophole. guess what, that's not how our laws work. you can't say gee, officer, that cocaine was purchased by my grandmother in 1912. so i think we're good here. you know what. back then people were polite and had respect. would you like the cocaine? that's why earlier this year the obama administration proposed a new ban on all commercial ivory sales within the united states. and stricker documentation requirements for antiques.
>> the new regulation effectively change the burden of proof. >> exactly right. it shifts the burden of proof from the government to the holder of the ivory to prove any ivory they have is an-- antique. >> jon: you know democrats will enforce these rules, there are no animals they won't protect, that is why thousands of-- set aside in prezfbs. but republicans, republicans? except-- accept a new regulation from the obama administration, even one designed to save their beloved mascot. (laughter) >> you have terrorists and rebel groups capitalizing on this trade. >> we need very aggressive action. >> i find it horrendous that people are doing this in the 21st century. >> (laughter) >> jon: we just witnessed something rarer in nature than the african elephant. bipartisan commitment to an
issue. no-- (cheers and applause) >> but of course, it makes sense. it makes the all sense. elephants get preserves, terrorist get denied funding, what kind of an ass would be opposed it. >> we are trying to defeat the ivory ban rz oh nr. >> is there anything that you would keep trying to kill that would keep other things. why would you be against something that keeps illicit airports out of terrorist. >> it is also an firearm issue. >> you just inherited, is worth its. >> it is going to drive the price of ivory up. >> make the owners criminal. >> it is going to hurt americans. >> jon: so i guess the only thing that should be hurt are giant land mammals and victims of african terrorism. you know what, why are you
sitting in a studio yaking in a radio, that can't put a dent in this. no lawmakers is going to take the bathe. >> for those who are concerned that this administration is trying to take away our guns, well, this regulation could actually do that. >> i've introduced legislation s2587. the lawful ivory protection act of 2014 to stop this misguided policy from going forward. [bleep]. >> jon: see, this is why we can't have nice things. like elephants. we'll be right back. ♪ this is the iphone 6. and this is the iphone 6 plus. you know the new a8 chip is powerful it brings gaming to the next level. i mean, if you're into that kinda thing. yeah, if you're into that kinda thing... watch out for that enemy turret, koshka! i got it, glaive! alright, now let's destroy the vain crystal! wait, i'm going to upgrade from barbed needle to serpent mask. i'm going to buy some minion candy too.

flashing what law enforcement agencies tell sus a known gang side for a north side gang. (laughter) >> jon: that's a gang sign. all this time i've been the lead in for a in the oruous gang member. (laughter) incredible. you know what, that's it i don't want that gang member, i want that guy gone by the end of the year. (laughter) anyway, eye witness news 5 is faking this story very seriously. >> tonight law enforcement sources alerted to us a photo that has them fuming over the actions of minneapolis mayor. >> they want to know item mayor would take a picture with a convicted criminal while he and the mayor flash gang signs. (laughter) >> jon: i think it's obvious.
to warn clown ass bitches, not to snitch. (laughter) just not a sentence i say a lot. how on earth can the mayor's office explain this blatt ept endorsement of criminal activity? >> a spokesperson concludes by saying quote she and the man in the photo are just pointing at one another to which the head of the police union says she's been around long enough, she knows better. >> jon: come on! she has held lechive office since 2005. whereas pointing as a gesture only goes back to literally the very first form of human communication. by the way, that of course-- no, do not encourage notorious gang kingpin huggie --
>> the mayor was doing voter registration work with a man who wasn't in a gang and was brazenly flashing a not-gang sign. so how did this get painted as a gang thing. >> one month ago she took a strong position on law enforcement and community relations. she wrote this in an open letter to the community. >> quote some officers abuse the trust that is afforded it to them. and take advantage of their roles to do harm rather than prevent it. >> oh, i get it. this isn't so much about the mayor flashing this sign, as it is about the police flashing this sign at the mayor. anyway, the cops are mad. because the mayor criticized their conduct. when they came across this picture they told everyone that it was actually this picture. which means unfortunately, it's time to once again
