It was Donald Trump’s 70th birthday on Tuesday, and as Trevor Noah reported on The Daily Show, he celebrated by framing President Barack Obama as a terrorist sympathizer.
During an appearance on Fox & Friends this week, Trump described Obama as “not tough, not smart, or he’s got something else in mind,” reviving old conspiracy theories about the president’s faith.
“Are you shitting me?” Noah asked. “Donald Trump, the Republican nominee, is saying the president of the United States is a secret agent for ISIS. He’s accusing Obama of treason! If ever there was a way you know that President Obama is not an African president, this is it, because if you pulled this shit in Africa, we would not know where Donald Trump is right now.” Calling Trump “deceitful” and “shameless,” Noah said the 2016 race only had one sleeper agent and his name was Dr. Ben Carson.
With the presidential primaries now over, Noah noted that the stakes have been raised. America will either elect the “she-wolf of Wall Street” or “an expired bottle of Sunny Delight.” So he decided to compare Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump head-to-head via their respective speeches in response to the Orlando terror attack.
While Clinton exhibited “signs of compassion, resolve and restraint,” Trump went with pure “paranoia and late-stage jaundice.”
“Let’s cut the crap, this guy is fucking crazy dangerous,” Noah said of Trump. “He’s not trying to move America forward. He spent most of his speech lying and laying out his plan to turn America on itself.” The host proceeded to call out Trump’s various lies about Clinton’s supposed secret plan to abolish the Second Amendment and confiscate all the guns in the country.
Pushing back against Trump’s assertion that loose immigration laws gave rise to the Orlando shooter, Noah told the GOP candidate, “There’s no box on the immigration form that says, ‘Do you plan to accidentally raise a child that could be a danger to America?’ That box doesn’t exist. Because if that box did exist, what would have happened is when your mother immigrated to the U.S. from Scotland, she would have checked yes and yes!”
