On Monday night, Trevor Noah criticized Hillary Clinton over her defense of her husband of what many believe was an abuse of power when he had his affair with Monica Lewinsky. Over the weekend, Clinton was asked if Bill Clinton should have resigned for his affair, which she answered “absolutely not.” And she dismissed the idea that the President of the United States having sexual relations with a White House intern was not an abuse of power because Lewinsky was “an adult” and quickly pivoted to the allegations that have been made about the current president, Donald Trump. Noah thought if she had more interviews like that, she’ll probably want go “go back into the woods.” “Nooooo, Hillary,” Noah reacted. “That’s not cool.” “Maybe it was different in the 90s, but today, I think we’re all understanding that there’s a massive power imbalance between an intern and Continue reading "Trevor Noah Rips Hillary Clinton For Deflecting From Husband’s Affair: ‘You’re Not in a Position to be Throwing Stones’"
The Daily Show with Trevor Noah recalled a previous era of the show when the titular current host offered scathing criticism of, historically, one of the shows favorite targets. Of course, we are talking about right-of-center Fox News and last night host Trevor Noah effectively pointed and laughed at Fox News conservative talent’s hyperventilating at former Attorney General Eric Holder’s recent comments. In a clip that’s been aired on Fox News repeatedly, Holder updated Michelle Obama’s famous axiom of “when they go low, we go high” with a different response: “we kick them. After airing that clip, Noah then showed a clip of Sean Hannity’s response: “We kick them.” Really? This is the top cop under Barack Obama, from hope and change to kick ’em on the ground?” Noah replied, “Can we just acknowledge that by saying they’re going to get kicked, Sean Hannity and his friends are accepting that Continue reading "Trevor Noah Ridicules Conservative Criticism of Eric Holder: ‘Fox News Phony Victims Unit’"
On Tuesday night, Trevor Noah reacted to the political endorsement of Taylor Swift. Over the weekend, the pop star took to Instagram and endorsed Democrats running in Tennessee and criticized GOP Senate candidate Marsha Blackburn. Noah began by saying that hearing celebrities voice their political opinions is “like climate change… it’s happening everyday and most people ignore it.” However, he acknowledged that some celebrities “cannot be ignored,” citing pro-Trump rapper Kanye West. And it didn’t take long for him to pivot to Swift. “This- this is a big deal,” Noah told his audience. “Because you realize until now, Taylor Swift has stayed as far away from politics as she does from rhythm. Don’t get me wrong, don’t get me wrong, I love Tay-Tay’s music, but let’s be honest, have you seen her dancing?” The Daily Show host then had some fun at the expense of President Donald Trump Continue reading "Trevor Noah Celebrates Taylor Swift Weighing Into Politics: ‘This is a Big Deal’"
Trevor Noah weighed in on the seemingly inevitable confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Noah began by pointing out how the White House “loves” the conclusions made by the FBI investigation, which was that there was no corroboration that proves the sexual misconduct allegations that were made against Kavanaugh. “I don’t know if we can call a five-day investigation sufficient,” Noah said. “Although I get why the White House thinks it is. I mean, they’ve never spent five consecutive days on anything.” The Daily Show host thought that the investigation looked like a “sham,” pointing out how several people who weren’t interviewed by the FBI including Kavanaugh and Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. He went on to say that it didn’t matter how “thorough” the investigation was since it was meant to give “cover” for swing vote Senators Jeff Flake (R-AZ), Susan Collins (R-ME) and Lisa Murkowski (A-AK).

On Monday night, Trevor Noah took some time to commend President Donald Trump on his newly-announced trade deal with Canada and Mexico. Noah began by echoing Trump’s rhetoric about how we’d all be “tired of winning” during his presidency, saying that while he was right in saying we’d be all very “tired,” he added that he “delivered on the winning part” with the United States Mexico Canada Agreement. “People said that it would be bad to elect a bully as president, but now, America is literally taking Canada’s milk money, so I guess it worked. It worked!” Noah exclaimed. “And jokes aside… this trade deal looks like it will help American carmakers and farmers and protect a lot of US-based jobs. And the best part is, we’re already seeing a 300% increase in Trump’s bragging.” The Daily Show host pushed back at Trump’s assertion that the deal was Continue reading "Trevor Noah Praises Trump For USMCA Trade Deal: He’s Delivering on the ‘Winning’"
On Wednesday night, Trevor Noah offered rare praise for Senate Republicans ahead of the Thursday’s hearing of Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh and his first accuser Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. Noah began by mocking Kavanaugh for the calendar he kept in 1982 that he is using as evidence to defend himself and poked fun at various entries like the ones that say he was grounded, ones that may mean he was getting “brewskis,” to one about seeing the film Grease 2. “That must be code for something because nobody saw Grease 2,” Noah reacted. “That movie was so bad, John Travolta turned it down. Do you know how bad a movie has to be for John Travolta to turn it down? That dude did all three talking baby movies! All three! The third of which was talking dogs. That’s how bad Grease 2 was.” The Daily Show Continue reading "Trevor Noah Praises Senate GOPers For Inviting Sex Crimes Prosecutor Rachel Mitchell to Hearing"
On Monday night, Trevor Noah reacted to the latest developments of the ongoing controversy surrounding Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Over the weekend, The New Yorker published a report revealing a second accuser who alleged Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a college party. “If the allegations are true, then there seems to be a pattern of behavior and the GOP’s Supreme Court pick is in trouble,” Noah said. “Also, I don’t understand why guys are still whipping out dks. I mean, I know this happened a long time ago, but that’s my point. Like, why are guys whipping out dks? No party has ever been made better by a d**k being whipped out.” The Daily Show host mocked Kavanaugh for pointing to his calendar as part of his defense, saying it’s “pretty ballsy” of him since it would likely not “hold up in his court.” He Continue reading "Trevor Noah: GOP Will Do Anything For a Conservative SCOTUS, ‘Even If It Means Normalizing Sexual Assault’"
