#EndorseThis: Trevor Noah Blasts President Trump’s Alien Sex Rockets

Trevor Noah has been relatively quiet lately (at least through the #EndorseThis lens) which is healthy for the Daily Show comedian. The minor controversy over his World Cup comments (which wound-up getting France’s government involved) needed time and space in order to be forgotten.

Space. Hmm, that’s a word we’ve been hearing a lot from Presidential podiums. To most comedians, President Trump’s “Space Force” is a lousy idea that should be lampooned, even lamented. But to Trevor it’s a thing of beauty…in a Kung Fury kind of way. The comic has always interpreted 45 more culturally than politically, even putting him in “Donny’s World” skits straight out of 1986.

What does Noah see in Trump’s 30-year-old idea for an outer-space military? Why, sexy space aliens, of course! Rather than continue to cast the POTUS in 80s sitcoms, now he’s going full Avatar meets Earth Girls Are Easy. It’s almost as if Trump is trying to be the hero in his own “Skinnemax” flick.

Aw come on now, what evidence is there for that?

It’s not often that an article in Golfweek sets the tone for the actual week, but on Saturday the premier journal of hitting small balls with sticks noted continuing problems for the nascent LIV Golf tour. The schedule of tournaments isn’t full. The roster of big name players that LIV needs to make itself seem a legit competitor to the 93-year-old PGA Tour have failed to materialize. The team-based structure of LIV has failed to create the kind of rivalries that the creators suggested would help raise interest in the new offering.

However, all those concerns could turn out to be minor. That’s because a court case in California, where LIV has filed an antitrust suit against the PGA, has gone in a direction that LIV definitely, definitely did not want. While fighting back against this suit, the PGA has sought to compel discovery about the real sources behind the fund picking up the ticket on LIV’s considerable expenses. As it happens, a slip of the tongue from a LIV attorney during the trial revealed that the fund owns 93% of LIV Golf and covers all of its expenses.
