Trevor Noah On Reparations: ‘I Have My Eye On You, Elizabeth Warren’

“Let’s talk about slavery,” Trevor Noah said Thursday when he opened his monologue on “The Daily Show.” Then he quickly added, “No, white people, come baaaack!” “Even today,” he said, “the topic of slavery still brings up so many hot-button issues – racism, Confederate statues and, lately, reparations.” Noah, whose book Born a Crime tells his story of growing up as a mixed-race child in apartheid South Africa, said that reparations for slavery, once considered a radical idea, has become more mainstream. Presidential candidates, including Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), Julián Castro and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, are saying it needs to be considered. Noah welcomes the discussion, with one caveat. “I have my eye on you, Elizab...

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...

‘Top Chef’ Host Padma Lakshmi Torches ‘Lunatic’ Donald Trump With Her Immigration Story

“Top Chef” host Padma Lakshmi used her own immigration story to call out President Donald Trump on Tuesday’s broadcast of “The Daily Show.” I really came here with my mother, much like these people at the border with hardly anything. What you have to understand is that, if a parent takes a child on a dangerous journey, puts them on their back, is willing to walk across deserts, that’s because the place they’re leaving is worse and more dangerous, and I just think we have plenty to share. And if you look at all the contributions that immigrants have made, you’re basically looking at what America is today, in whole, full stop. There’s no crisis. There’s no crisis. The only crisis is that we have a lunatic with a lot of power. That is the only crisis. Check out the full interview here:

Trevor Noah’s ‘The Daily Show’ Looks Back At ‘The Worst Scandal In Presidential History’

But they are nothing, according to “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah,” compared with “the worst scandal in presidential history” ― when former President Barack Obama donned a tan suit during a 2014 press briefing. Well, it was a scandal in conservative quarters, at least:

Trevor Noah Reveals The Real Reason Black People Won’t Vote For Trump

On Wednesday, former Trump attorney Michael Cohen called his former boss a racist during testimony before Congress.  “What?” he asked. “Black people wouldn’t vote for you, Trump, because they’re too stupid? No, Donald!”  Noah said there was another reason black voters won’t choose Trump. Two reasons, actually: 

Keeping Up With Sex Scandals: Trevor Noah Lists ‘The Pervs’

The news has been full of reports of sex-crimes accusations against priests, patriots, politicians and pop stars, or as “The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah calls them, “the pervs.” Noah had something to say on Monday’s show about a number of cases: R. Kelly, singer: “After years and years of alleged sex crimes, R. Kelly may finally be facing justice. And it almost feels strange that they got him after all these years, you know. It’s like if Wile E. Coyote finally caught the Road Runner.” Abusive Roman Catholic priests: “The pope has threatened abusive priests with the wrath of God. That is the ultimate ‘just wait till your dad gets home.’” Jeffrey Epstein, billionaire: “Think about how crazy this is. There is a member of Trump’s Cabinet who has helped a billionaire sex offender sweep a scand...

Trevor Noah Amazingly Finds A Silver Lining In The Jussie Smollett Story

Trevor Noah has somehow managed to find a sliver of good news when it comes to the controversy surrounding Jussie Smollett and his alleged planning of a fake hate crime against himself. On Thursday night’s episode of “The Daily Show,” Noah offered a brilliant takeaway from the controversy surrounding the “Empire” star. After Chicago police put together a report of what they believe occurred during the allegedly staged attack, Noah pointed out, numerous groups have been upset about the revelation. Survivors of hate crimes worry it will discourage actual victims from coming forward, Trump supporters feel they’ve been maligned, and prominent Democrats, like Sen. Kamala Harris, have walked back their initial outrage. “When this started out, it was a story about people who hated Jussie Smollett...

Trevor Noah Torches Fox News With ‘Reverse-Marie Kondo’ Zinger

Trevor Noah poked fun at the Fox News hosts who are freaking out about the so-called “scandals” engulfing the potential Democratic challengers to President Donald Trump in 2020. On Tuesday’s broadcast of “The Daily Show,” Noah noted how hosts on the conservative network — including Sean Hannity ― were honing in on issues such as Sen. Cory Booker’s (D-N.J.) veganism. “Oh man, I feel so bad for people who take Fox News seriously,” said Noah: “It’s got to be so much work. Because they’re always telling you, like ‘The Democrats are coming for your shit! You’ve gotta stockpile a lifetime supply of meat! You’ve gotta stockpile guns! You’ve gotta keep your fossil fuels! Your bibles! American flags! Confederate statues!’ There must be one closet at your house that’s chaos. Complete chaos.” “Fox Ne...

Trevor Noah: ‘National Emergency’ Highlights Trump The Songwriter

President Donald Trump knows his declaration of a national emergency will be challenged in the courts, “The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah said Monday. “We know he knows this,” Noah said, “because he wrote a song about it.” “Surprisingly,” Noah said, “Cardi D’s jam over here probably wasn’t wrong. His prediction of the court battle makes sense.” Noah even suggested the way to teach Trump about various issues, including those involving foreign policy, would be to use sing-song to tell him about them. Check out the video up top and sing along.

Trevor Noah: Real Theme Of Trump’s Speech Was ‘We’re All Gonna Die’

Trevor Noah, host of “The Daily Show,” noted on Tuesday night that President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address touched on many issues, including the economy, the Robert Mueller investigation and even bullying. But that was all just throat-clearing, Noah said. “The real theme of his speech was that we’re all gonna die, Mexican style,” Noah said. He played a series of clips with Trump voicing such chillings phrases as “ruthless coyotes,” “criminal illegal aliens,” “sadistic traffickers” and “very dangerous borders.” “The president will be available for children’s parties if you want to book him, folks,” Noah said. “Seriously, this part of the speech was so scary he should have just been doing it with a flashlight under his chin.” “You see,” Noah said, “these problems can all go away ...

Trevor Noah Names The One Circumstance That Would Have Made Racist Photo OK

Trevor Noah, host of “The Daily Show,” said Monday that when Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam apologized Friday for appearing in a racist photo in his old medical school yearbook, it made sense that he did not identify which of the two people ― a man in blackface or a person in Ku Klux Klan robes ― he was. “I don’t blame him,” said Noah, who grew up under apartheid in South Africa, “because neither option is good. Yeah, it’s like you’re taking a trip and the only choices are the Titanic and Spirit Airlines.” But when Northam backtracked the next day, saying that he was not in the photo, Noah questioned his explanation. “This guy is a legend,” Noah said, “I’m sorry, his new defense is that he knows he didn’t do this blackface because he clearly remembers doing a different blackface.” Noah added:...

Trevor Noah: Trump Wants FBI To Give Targets A 20-Minute Head Start — With A Golf Cart

Trevor Noah mocked Donald Trump’s outrage over the no-frills manner in which the president’s long-time pal and adviser Roger Stone was arrested last week by the FBI. A “disappointed” Trump said he was even considering asking the FBI to review how it makes arrests. “That’s right,” Noah said on Thursday’s broadcast of “The Daily Show.” “President Trump wants to change how the FBI conducts its raids. Which makes me wonder: Is there someone he’s expecting the FBI to arrest?” Noah also joked that Trump wants to make the FBI give anyone they’re going to arrest a “20-minute head start — and a golf cart.” Check out the video clip above.
