#EndorseThis: Trevor Noah On Trump Blowing Up Our Money In Outer Space

Trevor Noah is nothing if not culturally tuned-in. He knows that as angry and upset as his audience might be about the Trump administration, the words “Beyonce” and “Jay-Z” have been mega-trending since the pair released a surprise album. Maybe the Daily Show audience would like to hear the comic’s take on that. So he […]

#EndorseThis: Trevor Noah Kicks Off World Cup By Nuking Russia

The 2018 World Cup has begun. It’s causing a stir around the world and a mere coffee drip in the United States. The USMNT failed to qualify, and Google alerts will spoil results by midday due to the time difference. Worse yet, the tournament is in Russia. Trevor Noah is not pleased. The 34-year-old comic […]

#EndorseThis: Trevor Noah Says Trump Is Messing With The Wrong NFL Fanbase

As cynical as it may be on President Trump’s part, there’s no question that the POTUS helped his popularity with some of America’s less-cultured sports fans when he took sides against NFL players kneeling for the national anthem. “Trump has the high ground. The flag. America,” said Dilbert cartoonist and pro-Trumper Scott Adams in 2017. […]

#EndorseThis: Trevor Noah Says Trump And Sean Hannity Are The Real Animals

Sometimes you gotta feel sorry for President Trump. No, actually…no you don’t. Several days ago, the POTUS referred to Mexican gang members as “animals” in such a context that reporters concluded he meant all undocumented immigrants. Partisans had their say in both directions. But just when we thought it had blown over, here comes comic […]

#EndorseThis: Trevor Noah Trolls White People For Calling 911 Out Of Racism

On Tuesday’s episode of The Daily Show, Trevor Noah spent some time going through White House Chief of Staff John Kelly’s problematic views on immigration. Kelly says some of the right things when asked about undocumented Americans. But his statements degrading the families who cross the border illegally betray an insensitivity to ingrained racism. Perhaps […]

#EndorseThis: Trevor Noah Calls Michael Cohen A Human Scam Email

Internet scamming is different than it used to be. Users must now be wary of social media companions who seem too good to be true, fake profiles and schemes aimed at stealing information. Trevor Noah thinks President Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen’s corruption and self-serving tactics are hearkening back to a simpler time, when a laptop […]

#EndorseThis: Trevor Noah On How Trump Could Flunk The Easiest Test Ever

In 2016, CNN was blasted for allowing Hillary Clinton a peek at one question in advance of a debate with Bernie Sanders. President Trump just got a peek at almost 50 questions he’ll be asked in an even more serious setting, and all anyone can talk about is who may have leaked them. Trevor Noah […]

#EndorseThis: Trevor Noah Is Mad Macron, Toddler Trump In Epic State Visit Recap

French President Emmanuel Macron is catching heat for buttering up to President Trump. By the time the pair shared a state dinner at the White House on Tuesday, TV cameras and stand-up comedians were catching every smooch, embrace and hand-clasp in the awkward “bromance.” Trevor Noah senses something deeper, arguing that France has become like […]

#EndorseThis: Trevor Noah Compares Trump’s Foreign Policy To A Cheesy 80s Sitcom

They say a blind hog still finds an acorn. But even a hog couldn’t be quite as hammy as President Donald J. Trump. Today’s priceless clip shows comic Trevor Noah unable to control his mirth when Trump, finally granted a lone success story with CIA chief Mike Pompeo’s “secret” trip to visit DPRK dictator Kim […]

Heineken

#EndorseThis: Heineken Gets Skunked By Trevor Noah Over Blatantly Racist TV Ad

If Kendall Jenner’s odious Pepsi ad seemed like a nadir in tone-deaf marketing, wait until you see the latest TV ad from Heineken. It’s not just the final shot and the ad’s punch line that offend. The portrayals of African-Americans are trite, outdated and disrespectful, making the tag line feel like it was written by […]

#EndorseThis: Trevor Noah Casts Bob Mueller, Stormy Daniels In Fifty Shades Of Trump

We’ve established at #EndorseThis that Trevor Noah is a comedian of forbearance. Often, the jokes told early in his monologues seem less-funny on purpose, as the audience is set up for giggles followed by roaring laughter when the covfefe hits the fan. To be fair, Noah is solid gold from the start in today’s clip, […]

#EndorseThis: Trevor Noah Pans Trump As The Dotard God Smiled On Over North Korea

Trevor Noah has left his religious views ambiguous in memoirs written to-date. But we can speculate that if Noah has an image of God, it’s a vision of a tolerant and peaceful spirit. The comic may also believe, firmly, that God has a sense of humor. The Daily Show‘s satirical genius starts slowly as usual in […]

#EndorseThis: Trevor Noah Hits Second Home Run In Three Days, Crushes Embezzler Ben Carson

We try to keep it pretty fair at #EndorseThis. Each comedian, philosopher, blogger and citizen gets an equal voice in the round. If a comic has been featured in a given week already, she isn’t likely to have the talking stick. That said, wowzer, what a talent is Trevor Noah. Fairness dictates giving Trevor his […]

#EndorseThis: Trevor Noah’s Wrathful New Trump Impression Is An American Classic

The great artists make their audiences wait. Muhammad Ali toyed with his lesser opponents, making sure ticket-buyers didn’t get a two-minute fight. Fans of Paul Thomas Anderson had to wait almost two hours for the “Jesse’s Girl” scene in Boogie Nights. In this mesmerizing new rant from Trevor Noah, the comic deliberately warms up with […]

Hannity

#EndorseThis: Trevor Anoints Hannity High Priest Of Pro-Trump Bulls***

There’s a lot to like about this epic Trevor Noah news rant on Monday’s episode of The Daily Show. It begins with President Trump flinging wild accusations — and it can’t end without a good ol’ Mortal Kombat reference, as Trevor details the GOP’s futile efforts to shut down the investigation into Russian election interference. […]

#EndorseThis: Trevor Noah Sends B-Team To Scout Trump’s C-Grade Border Wall

In today’s clip, Trevor Noah finds himself distracted by frivolous office-harassment claims…so he sends pesky butt-touching duo Dulce Sloan and Michael Kosta to Tijuana instead. Their mission? Investigate the prototypes of President Trump’s Mexican border wall. Kosta becomes the first man to successfully scale the wall, offering a review of Trump’s handiwork that is only […]

#EndorseThis: Trevor Noah On Trump Sneering At ‘Shithole’ Countries

If that presidential “shithole” gaffe annoyed anyone on television, Trevor Noah might be first in line. He’s a talented immigrant from South Africa, after all. In the face of this insane provocation, he’s still keeping it together. “Personally, as someone from South Shithole, I’m offended, Mr. President. I’m offended,” said the Daily Show host. And […]

Bannon

#EndorseThis: The Daily Show Highlights Bannon Versus Trump

To understand the furor over Steve Bannon’s devastating description of “treasonous” conduct by Donald Trump Jr. — and all the other harsh things said by the former chief strategist in Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury — the full context is helpful. And in this segment, Trevor Noah places the Bannon quotes within the latest revelations […]

Franken

#EndorseThis: Can We Still Laugh About Al Franken And Roy Moore?

Are you feeling sad about Al Franken’s admission that he behaved inappropriately toward Leeann Tweeden on a USO tour in 2006? So are we. But as Trevor Noah notes, the Senator from Minnesota has apologized, taken responsibility, and invited an ethics investigation of his actions. That powerfully distinguishes Franken from Roy Moore, the Alabama Senate […]

#EndorseThis: Trump Sends America Into Rapid Decline — But Being Losers Isn’t All Bad

By now everyone has realized that Donald Trump isn’t “making America great again.” Indeed despite his blustering rhetoric, Trump’s presidency has consistently elevated China, Russia, and other US rivals, while diminishing our country’s prestige and prospects every day. From the Trans Pacific Partnership to the Paris Climate Accords, the botched diplomacy of this buffoonish president […]

#EndorseThis: Trevor Noah And Michelle Wolf Solve ‘The Weinstein Problem’

“I’m glad Harvey Weinstein likes people watching him shower. Because there’s a lot of that in prison.” Yes, Trevor Noah is righteously outraged over the Hollywood producer’s misogynist aggressions, which now include at least two allegations of felonious assault under investigation by New York police detectives. But as the Daily Show host points out, that […]

#EndorseThis: Trevor Noah Mocks Epic Fox News Fail In Vegas Coverage

Trevor Noah and The Daily Show staff watch Fox News Channel so we don’t have to — and even in the wake of a profound tragedy like the Vegas shooting, the antics of Murdoch’s on-air personalities provide a measure of comic relief. At Fox & Friends, the opaque motives of the shooter puzzled hosts. “We […]

#EndorseThis: Trump’s Wingnuts Are Furious Over His ‘Bipartisan’ DACA Flip-Flop

Overnight, there is a shiny new “bipartisan” Donald Trump. In a series of stunning turnabouts, the president has switched positions on some signature issues. His latest tweets indignantly suggest that it would be crazy to expel those wonderful young Dreamers — the same policy he demanded for the past two years. But he isn’t fooling […]

#EndorseThis: How Republicans Really Feel About Trump’s Deal With Democrats

If you’re still stunned by Trump’s deal with Congressional Democrats to increase the debt ceiling and fund relief for Harvey victims, imagine how the Republican leadership feels. Trevor Noah channels their highly comical distress in the most graphic terms (and incidentally reveals where several Dreamers are currently hiding out — take a close look at […]

#EndorseThis: How (Not) To Cope With North Korea’s H-Bomb

With Kim Jong Un brandishing a thermonuclear weapon — specifically his very own “peanut-shaped” H-bomb  — the world faces fresh peril. So what is Donald Trump’s strategy for dealing with this threat? Let’s just say Trevor Noah is not impressed. In fact as summer ends, he’s just glad he isn’t wearing white pants.
