Trevor Noah Reacts to Justice Kennedy’s Retirement: ‘In Some Ways, It Feels Like All Hope is Dead’

On Wednesday night, Trevor Noah weighed in on the newly-announced retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy. Noah began by stressing that Kennedy was “without question the most powerful justice on the court” because despite his conservative leaning, he periodically voted with liberals, noting that he was the deciding vote on issues like gay rights and abortion. But now President Donald Trump will likely nominate a judge who would “discriminate, dismantle abortion rights, and LGBTQ rights.” “And that sound you’re hearing right now? That’s Mike Pence having his first orgasm,” Noah told his audience. The Daily Show host noted that this was Trump’s second Supreme Court pick because Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) “stole” President Obama’s Supreme Court pick, but complimented the senator for being “super slick” comparing it to Mission: Impossible. “And that’s the thing we sometimes forget about the Republican Party. Although Donald Trump may be a klutz Continue reading "Trevor Noah Reacts to Justice Kennedy’s Retirement: ‘In Some Ways, It Feels Like All Hope is Dead’"

Bill Clinton: I Have ‘A Lot Of Respect’ For Sarah Sanders For How She Handled Being Booted From Red Hen

On Tuesday night, former President Bill Clinton weighted in on the debate over civility in America. Clinton began by recalling being approached by an angry protestor while he and his family had attended church back in the 90s and related his experience to the recent incident involving Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders being kicked out of the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, VA. “You ask yourself, well, should you go from there to asking her to leave the restaurant? That’s a decision for the restaurant owner to make. What I’d like to point out is would it be better if that didn’t happen? I think it would,” Clinton told Trevor Noah. “But you know, A lot of poison has been poured down America’s throat since that 2016 campaign started… So it’s hard to pour poison down other people’s throat and not have some of it come back up and bubble up.” Continue reading "Bill Clinton: I Have ‘A Lot Of Respect’ For Sarah Sanders For How She Handled Being Booted From Red Hen"

Clinton Tells Trevor Noah What He’s Learned From #MeToo: I Can’t React to ‘Raw Pain’ of Reliving Something From 20 Years Ago

Former President Bill Clinton was asked yet again about his handling of the #MeToo movement while promoting his best-selling book. Before wrapping up his interview with Clinton and co-author James Patterson, Trevor Noah addressed the former president’s poor handling of the questions that were asked to him about the #MeToo movement, which Clinton admitted wasn’t his “finest hour.” “Over the weeks I’ve watched your interviews and I’ve read what you said on how these conversations have shaped your mind and your understanding of the Me Too movement,” Noah told Clinton. “Honest question: Has it been hard for you to reprogram your brain? Has is been difficult for to you go, ‘I have to relearn something that is happening now as to how I have always seen the world?'” “No, it means I need not to react to the raw pain of having to relive something that happened Continue reading "Clinton Tells Trevor Noah What He’s Learned From #MeToo: I Can’t React to ‘Raw Pain’ of Reliving Something From 20 Years Ago"

The Daily Show Analyzes CNN Panel Discussions: ‘Their Priority is Producing a Sh*t Show’

On Thursday night, The Daily Show took on CNN’s unique art form of panel discussions. In the latest edition of “Journalisming with Desi Lydic,” Desi Lydic explained to viewers that panels are “groups of experts brought together to debate today’s biggest issues” and how the “game has changed” since the days of William F. Buckley and that there’s “no channel that can panel” like CNN. Lydic praised CNN’s various panel formats including “three boxes,” “five boxes,” “long tables,” “circle tables,” “horseshoe,” and “double stuffed,” and jokingly commended them for their “bunk table” efforts. “So what makes CNN’s panels better than the rest?” Lydic asked. “Let’s start with the most important thing: You want a spirited debate. If the panelists can hear each other talk, you already failed.” She then showed numerous clips of heated discussions between some of their most vocal pundits like Paris Dennard, Rick Wilson, Continue reading "The Daily Show Analyzes CNN Panel Discussions: ‘Their Priority is Producing a Sh*t Show’"

Trevor Noah Slams DHS Sec Nielsen For Saying ‘We’re a Country of Compassion’: ‘That’s Some Bullsh*t’

Trevor Noah had a lot to say about the Trump administration’s recent “zero tolerance” immigration policy that is separating illegal immigrant families at the southern border. Noah began by saying it’s a “scary time to be an immigrant in America” and that the Trump administration is “inching closer to their goal of being the Norway of the West.” He showed examples of the heavy blowback that the new policy has been receiving, including this tweet from Pope Francis. “Damn, if even the Catholic Church is judging you for how you treat children, you done f**ked up,” Noah reacted. The Daily Show host took some shots at Fox & Friends for saying that children aren’t being kept in “cages” but Continue reading "Trevor Noah Slams DHS Sec Nielsen For Saying ‘We’re a Country of Compassion’: ‘That’s Some Bullsh*t’"

Trevor Noah Mocks Bill Clinton’s Book Tour: ‘You Know Who I Really Feel Bad For? James Patterson’

Trevor Noah had some fun at the expense of former President Bill Clinton for his stumbles on his book tour involving questions about Monica Lewinsky and the #MeToo Movement. In a segment called “Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That,” Noah briefly covered several topics including the latest reports surrounding President Trump‘s personal lawyer Michael Cohen, the AT&T-Time Warner merger, and the recent announcement that FIFA will be coming to North America in 2026. But perhaps he saved the best for last. Clinton raised lots of eyebrows in recent weeks. During his contentious interview on The Today Show, he refused to offer an in-person apology to Lewinsky. And earlier this week, he made rather creepy remarks about how the “norms” have changed in regards to doing things to women “against their will.” “By the way, his new book is called The President is Missing,” Noah said. Continue reading "Trevor Noah Mocks Bill Clinton’s Book Tour: ‘You Know Who I Really Feel Bad For? James Patterson’"

Daily Show Confronts 2018 Hannity Praising Trump-Kim Summit With 2013 Hannity Bashing Obama

As Sean Hannity continues to sing the praises of President Donald Trump, The Daily Show is calling out the hypocrisy over his conflicting statements on whether America’s leaders should meet with authoritarian figures. Like many conservatives, Hannity was deeply critical of Barack Obama when the former president met with Cuban leader Raúl Castro. Back in 2013, Hannity complained about Obama “catering to the world’s dictators,” said he was “showing a lot of weakness,” and was acting like “the Neville Chamberlain of our time.” Fast forward to 2018, where Trump recently picked fights with America’s G7 allies, granted an audience to Kim Jong Un, and suggested that America would withdraw troops from South Korea, even though POTUS didn’t establish a detailed plan with North Korea for their eventual denuclearization. What does Hannity Continue reading "Daily Show Confronts 2018 Hannity Praising Trump-Kim Summit With 2013 Hannity Bashing Obama"
