Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

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, beginning with President Trump’s foolhardy decision to bring “Mr. Mustache” John Bolton’s warmongering influence to the White House. Trevor hints that Trump is making wild, unhinged moves as rapidly as possible to keep the news cycle speeding past his legal and marital sins.

But of course, it’s a set-up for what comes next. Upon learning from Stormy Daniels that Trump was more relaxed and easygoing after some cringe-worthy BDSM play, Noah comes to the conclusion that Special Counsel Robert Mueller should drastically change tactics. Let’s just say Mueller should show up for the Trump interview with a full magazine of ammunition and maybe a whole “Swat” team.

No state may have borne more of Trump’s focused fury than Georgia. President Joe Biden carried the state by over 12,500 votes, making it second to Arizona when it comes to the the narrowest margin of victory. This was far outside the realm of possible change that might be addressed by a recount, but Georgia conducted a recount anyway. When that didn’t make things any better for Trump, he requested that Georgia count a third time, which it did. Trump still lost, and by a bigger number than ever.

A Republican House candidate for a competitive seat in northwest Ohio said Monday that mass shootings are an acceptable price to pay for his right to own guns.

"I don't care if countries in Europe have less shootings because they don't have guns. I care about THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and OUR 2nd Amendment Rights," Republican J.R. Majewski tweeted Monday evening. "I think Americans stopped caring what Europe thought of our country in 1776."
