Trevor Noah Is Fed Up With Wokeness: ‘This S**t Is Getting Ridiculous’

Trevor Noah thinks Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke is being forced to apologize too much ― and it’s time to put a stop to it.  O’Rourke ― or “handsome scarecrow,” as Noah called him ― has come under fire lately for some of the things he did as a teen, including belonging to a group of hackers and writing violent fiction.   “He wrote fiction,” Noah said, adding: “What’s next? Are we going to arrest George R.R. Martin? ‘That man’s a monster. He killed thousands!’ No. He’s a monster because he refuses to finish those books. That’s why he’s a monster. What the hell, George? You and Robert Mueller having a contest? Someone release something, goddammit!”  Noah said O’Rourke had to apologize for that and “about 50 other things,” including an interview in which he said he was “born...

Trevor Noah: Beto O’Rourke’s Bid As Surprising As Tucker Carlson’s Racist Remarks

In what may be the biggest non-surprise of the 2020 presidential campaign, Beto O’Rourke announced his candidacy for the Democratic nomination, Trevor Noah said Thursday. “Yes, that’s right, Beto O’Rourke is officially in the race,” said “The Daily Show” host. “And it’s about time because he’d been teasing us for months. Yeah, he wouldn’t say he was running. But he was on Oprah. He was on the cover of Vanity Fair. He released a documentary. But whenever we asked him if he was running he’d answer like a coy Southern belle: ‘I might, but a lady never tells.’” “Obviously, we all saw this coming,” Noah added. “This is the least surprising thing to happen since we found out Tucker Carlson said something racist.” Check out the video above to see why Noah thinks O’Rourke’s loss in the 2018 Senate...

Seth Meyers Conducts New Donald Trump Test On Beto O’Rourke, Draws ‘F**king Weird’ Conclusion

Seth Meyers is keen to scrutinize weird comments made by Donald Trump’s possible Democratic challengers in 2020 in the same way he mockingly picks apart those made by the president himself. The comedian explained on Thursday’s broadcast of “Late Night” that “we’re going to ask ourselves ‘would we make fun of Trump if he said that?’” Meyers mimicked Trump as he read out some O’Rourke’s answers from an interview with Vanity Fair about one of his first political campaign rallies: “Because every word was pulled out of me. Like, by some greater force, which was just the people there. Everything that I said, I was, like, watching myself, being like, How am I saying this stuff? Where is this coming from?” “Yeah, no, Beto, that was fucking weird. Yeah. That was a fucking weird thing to say,” Meyer...

Jimmy Fallon Hands It To Beto O’Rourke In Hilarious Spoof Of Campaign Announcement

Comedian Jimmy Fallon and President Donald Trump apparently agree on something: Former Congressman Beto O’Rourke’s hand gestures were off the charts when he announced Thursday that he’s running for the Democratic presidential nomination. So Fallon pumped up the gestures in his revved-up O’Rourke spoof on “The Tonight Show,” gushing and gulping: “I love America, I love democracy, I love air!”  “I’m excited. That’s it. I’m just excited,” says a shirt-sleeved, excruciatingly likable Fallon/O’Rourke in his message next to his calm, always-smiling wife, Amy Hoover Sanders, played by “Tonight Show” staffer Julie Harrison-Harney. In the clip provided exclusively to HuffPost, he describes himself as if a “compassionate head nod turned into a person” — but with lots of verve, like “if your friend’s...
