For many months, Americans have wondered exactly how Donald Trump is connected with Russia. And for just as many months, Trump has repeatedly replied, “I don’t have anything to do with Russia!” He has stuck with that mystifying denial stubbornly, despite a mountain of evidence showing that it’s false.
Now Trump lawyer Michael Cohen has turned over emails to Congress that show Trump was trying to build the world’s tallest skyscraper in Moscow while he was running for president.
For some reason, Trevor Noah finds this revelation shocking, if only because the scale of Trump’s lie is as large as the building he wanted to put up in the Russian capital. The Daily Show host was less surprised to see convicted felon Felix Sater starring as the middleman in that Moscow deal.
Shocking or not, it’s all quite amusing — in that ultra-dark way we’ve learned to enjoy since last January.
