#EndorseThis: Trevor Noah Breaks Down 'Biggest and Best' Conspiracy Theories

According to Trevor Noah, "No one does conspiracy theories like the United States." With the former guy still spewing spew election conspiracies as QAnon dominates the Republican Party, his observation seems sickeningly apt.

America is infested with so many conspiracy theories, in fact, that it's hard to keep track of all of them. That's why Noah is here to give us an in-depth breakdown of the "biggest and best, from Jeffrey Epstein to QAnon."

It's well worth the time -- you can laugh and learn.

#EndorseThis: Trevor Noah Rips DeSantis For Calling Florida A 'Freedom Oasis'

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has been getting a lot of unwarranted good press in the mainstream media for his handling of the Covid-19 pandemic. Yes, the same reckless governor who recently called his state a "freedom oasis," practically inviting rowdy spring breakers to clog the streets with no masks, has won praise from Fox News, CNN, and the New York Times.

But Trevor Noah isn't here for that nonsense. He reveals what's really happening in Florida, while hilariously mocking DeSantis.

Funny and true -- so click and enjoy!

#EndorseThis: Trevor Noah Tears Into Police Over Denial Of Atlanta Hate Crime

Trevor Noah traded his normally jovial tone last night for a more somber and angry demeanor, as he discussed the "horrifying" Atlanta mass shooting that left eight people dead, including six Asian-American women. Police officials across Georgia either tamped down the notion that the shooting was a hate crime. Or, like Cherokee City Sheriff Frank Reynolds, made excuses for the shooter by suggesting the shooter was motivated by a "bad day" and a "sexual addiction."

"This guy blamed a specific race of people for his problems," says Noah, "and then murdered them because of it. If that isn't racism, then the word has no meaning."

It's a brief but powerful monologue that everyone should see. Just click.

#EndorseThis: Trevor Noah Burns 'Bitch' Johnson Over (Failed) Stall Of Relief Bill

Americans are one step closer to getting much-needed pandemic relief-- no thanks to Republicans. In fact, one not only didn't vote for the bill but he also delayed it as long as he could.

That's right, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) took his pettiness to a new level, forcing Senate clerks to read all 628 pages of the $1.9 trillion Covid-19 relief package.

Needless to say, this maneuver irritated people, especially Trevor Noah, who ripped the Republican "bitch" during his show last night. Even more hilarious is that Johnson's effort did nothing to delay the bill -- because Democratic senators outwitted him on the floor this morning and cut off debate while he was still asleep.

This won't be the last roasting of Johnson, whose seat is up next year. Enjoy!

#EndorseThis: Late Night Comics Crush "Cancun Cruz" In Medley Of Mockery

It's crazy to think that a United States Senator, even one as creepy as Ted Cruz, would hop on a plane while their constituents freeze without power after a devastating winter storm. But that's exactly what the Texan did --- and after a flurry of obvious lies, he proceeded to make a bad act even worse.

Naturally all the late night hosts chimed in, and the Washington Post put together a highlight reel that will make all you Cruz fans chortle.

What's happening in Texas is no laughing matter, but a Ted take-down will always be rewarding. Enjoy!

#EndorseThis: Trevor Noah Asks Why Republicans Give Biden 'S**t' Over Unity

What is unity? Apparently, Republicans think it means President Biden and Congressional Democrats dumping their policy agenda to become...Republicans. But that's not what unity is -- as Trevor Noah discovered when he looked it up in Webster's.

Trevor sees the comedy in Republicans who now demand "unity" after voting against Biden's certification on Jan. 6 --- even after the deadly Capitol riot. You have to wonder how they can look in the mirror.

But when have Republicans ever worried about hypocrisy? No matter, they're a lot more amusing this way. Click and laugh.

#EndorseThis: Trevor Noah Exposes 'Deadly Strain Of Stupidity'

At this point, Trevor Noah must be starting to wonder why ever left South Africa for the United States. Watching people in Florida protest against mandatory masks at a county government meeting -- in a crazy clip that went viral -- was like realizing that you've checked into the world's largest insane asylum.

Noah listened in horror as the Palm Beach weirdos ranted about the deadly dangers of masks and threatened the county health authorities with "citizens arrest." Meanwhile the Sunshine State marked its highest-ever rate of infections with 9,000 new cases yesterday.

"Yes, it appears America isn't just dealing with a deadly strain of coronavirus, it's also dealing with a deadly strain of stupidity," Noah observes. "If wearing masks killed people, there would be no doctors, no dentists, and no hockey goalies. Every hockey game would end with a score of 1,000 to 980. Why are we even arguing with these idiots?"

Good question! But at least the Daily Show host has a few snappy answers for stupid people.



#EndorseThis: Trevor Noah Rates Trump’s Pandemic Leadership

Appearing from New York apartment on what Comedy Central now calls The Daily Social Distancing Show, Trevor Noah opens with a few notes of good news. Social distancing works – at least according to a fever-tracking app that measures thermometer trends across the country (and accurately predicted rising coronavirus cases). The Navy is sending hospital ships. Healthcare workers by the thousands are bravely stepping into the breach.

But then there are the so-called leaders of global society, whose woeful shortcomings are noted acidly by Noah. In Hungary, Viktor Orban seized the opportunity to rule by decree. In Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko urges citizens to cure themselves of coronavirus with saunas and vodka.

Here at home we have Donald J. Trump, the failing president whose remarks about the city of Seoul, Korea set a new mark for boastful idiocy at a White House press conference on Monday. Noah is saved from despair, however, by the performance of America's governors – most notably New York's Andrew Cuomo, who provides an extraordinary combination of true leadership and wholesome entertainment.
