- What's happening, people?
The holidays are just around the corner,
which means one thing in America,
Now, you've got tons of hot gift options
to choose from this year.
You know, it could be the iPhone 7,
the Nintendo Classic,
and of course, the very popular internet troll doll.
Yeah, I actually have one here.
When you squeeze it, it--
- [Troll] Women ruin Ghostbusters.
Awe, so hateful.
For more advice on whatto buy this season,
let's go to Ronnie Chang with
the Daily Show's Holiday Gift Guide.
("Deck The Halls")
- Hey everybody.
Look, we all agree,holiday shopping sucks.
But somehow this yearit's gotten even worse.
- [Reporter] Getting ready to shop this holiday season?
Get ready for a political minefield.
- The growing number of calls for boycotts
against a number of corporations
over their increasinglypolitical executives.
- You see this shit?
Holidays used to be about joy and love,
and trampling each otherto death at Best Buy.
Now we gotta worry about politics?
Like, come on,
I can't just buy my brother-in-law a toaster anymore.
Now it has to be a toaster
that supported Bernie in the primaries?
Hashtag Bern The Toast.
Let's take a look at what gifts you should avoid
if you're anti-Trump.
- The hashtag grab your wallet movement
is calling for people to shun companies
that either stock Trump family products,
or support the president-elect.
The grab your wallet campaign is calling for people
to stop shopping at Nordstrom, Amazon, Macy's,
even Yuengling brewery.
- Boycott Amazon?
You might as well just cancel Christmas then, alright.
Because look, I hate Donald Trump,
but not nearly as much as I hate standing in line
to buy a fucking Xbox.
No, even Gandhi would be like,
let's be reasonable here, okay?
We're talking aboutsame day free shipping.
And this year you can't even buy your anti-Trump relatives
new sneakers without someone getting sensitive.
- [Reporter] Some customers posted videos of them
burning and trashingtheir sneakers because,
a New Balance executiveexpressed support
for president-elect Donald Trump's trade policies.
- Okay, apparently some people don't know
what a boycott means.
If your protest ends with you reaching into your toilet bowl
and pulling out your soggy, shit stained sneakers,
congratulations you lost.
Let's just say you have to buy a gift
for a pro-Trump loved one.
Don't worry, this shopping shitstorm
is a bipartisan operation.
- [Reporter] GrubHub faced calls for a boycott
after its CEO emailed the entire company,
criticizing Trump's rhetoric.
- [News Anchor] There's agrowing anti-Starbucks campaign,
hashtag Trump Cup,
after a Trump supporterposted a video showing
a Starbucks employee refusing to write the name Trump
on their cup.
- Donald Trump supporters say they plan to boycott
the new Rogue One Star Wars movie,
because they claim partsof the movie were reshot
to add anti-Trump scenes.
- Not Star Wars.
Look, not everything has to be political.
Star Wars is about an evil, power hungry man
and his family tryingto undermine democracy.
Alright, it's just a movie.
It's just a movie.
Like seriously, does anything in this movie clip
even remotely remind you of Trump?
- Mmm, maybe wrong was I.
Look, obviously this is
a tense, politicallycharged holiday season.
And there's a lot of passion and anger on both sides.
So, I think the best gift everyone will be happy to receive
is the gift of understanding.
That noise cancelling headphones
are the only fucking way we're gonna make it to New Years.
- Thank you, Ronnie.
Happy holidays, everybody.
