On Monday’s The Daily Show host Trevor Noah compared Fox News to North Korea’s state-controlled media. Noah began the segment playing a clip from FNC’s Justice With Judge Jeanine March 25 show, where host Jeanine Pirro is shown criticizing Paul Ryan for giving Trump a failed health care bill. Noah then mocks Pirro blaming Ryan for the healthcare bill not passing, instead of Trump for not being able to sell it. But he really goes over the top at one part, comparing Pirro’s fervent delivery to socialist propaganda:
Thursday on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, former DNC chair and ex-CNN analyst Donna Brazile appeared to talk about her time as chair and the scandal that ousted her from her 14-year-run at CNN. While host Trevor Noah asked her why she gave questions to the Clinton campaign before a town hall, he didn’t push back when Brazile defended her actions and downplayed the controversy as media spin.
During an interview with Matt Wilstein of The Daily Beast website, Trevor Noah -- host of The Daily Show -- declared that he doubts Donald Trump “has the balls to go on a show where people don't like him.” Wilstein noted that even after the Republican president became the occupant of the White House a month ago, the liberal comedian “is still here, still tearing into Trump four nights a week and delivering the program's highest monthly ratings since his debut in October of 2015, an average of 1.4 million viewers a night in January.”
Tuesday night on CBS’s The Late Show, host Stephen Colbert reunited with his former Comedy Central rival Jon Stewart. Stewart, who made a career of delivering news stories from an ultra liberal perspective, took the opportunity to blast President Trump as a propagandist.
During Monday night's edition of The Daily Show on the Comedy Central cable television channel, host Trevor Noah slammed Donald Trump for making “outlandish” comments on the Twitter website, but the comedian saved his harshest criticisms for the GOP president-elect's “enablers” who worry that Trump is being “too casual with the highest office in the land.”
“If you're one of those people who thought Trump would magically give up Twitter once he was elected, think again because this weekend he gave us a definitive answer, and this is real,” Noah said at the beginning of the segment.
Appearing as a guest on Thursday's The Daily Show on Comedy Central, liberal comedian Chelsea Handler slammed women who refused to vote for Hillary Clinton as she declared that "there's something wrong with you," and cracked that women need to "get rid of" their husbands because they are "listening to their husbands too much." She also complained that women should have supported Clinton "whether you f****** like her or not."
On Tuesday, CBS This Morning went gaga over liberal comedian Jon Stewart's and the 17 years of his Daily Show. Charlie Rose gushed that "it became, for all of us, a, kind of, cultural event — more than a show." He later added, "There was nothing quite like him. A lot of people did it very well....But Jon had a special place." Rose, along with Gayle King and Norah O'Donnell, later marveled over the show's "extraordinary collection" of comedians. The newscast also touted several clips of the Comedy Central program mocking Republicans.
Comedy Central’s Trevor Noah has apparently recovered enough from declaring election night the “end of the world” to lament the “misogyny” Hillary Clinton faced as a candidate. Appearing on CBS This Morning, Monday, the Daily Show host lectured, “And misogyny, people talk about the glass ceiling but what you don't realize you can't see it because it's see-through. And misogyny has very quickly gone out of the conversation.”
If there’s a competition to see who can have the most dramatic media meltdown in response to Donald Trump’s election, then comedian Michelle Wolf is definitely in the running. For his Daily Show Wednesday night, host Trevor Noah invited Wolf on air for her reaction to Trump’s win in the 2016 presidential election. She began her three and a half minute outburst, “As my autocorrect would say, duck this ducking election.”
With Donald Trump doing significantly better than predicted in many states on election night, Daily Show host Trevor Noah opened his show by admitting he was “shitting his pants” over the results and by America’s “hate.” He also declared it the “end of the world.” Noah mourned, “It is election night, 11PM on the east coast. 8 out west and 9am tomorrow in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, which is where we may soon want to live. This is it, the end of the presidential race and it feels like the end of the world.”
Three of the late-night comedy programs went live to react to Wednesday’s final presidential debate and the assembled hosts and guests offered vulgar jokes comparing Donald Trump to a sex toy, phone sex operator, and man who needs breast feeding while dubbing Trump debate guest “Sarah Palin is the HPV of American politics.”
In the wake of lewd comments Donald Trump made being released on tape, celebrities and reporters have been quick to exemplify liberal hypocrisy and attack his wife, Melania Trump. At her Tidal X 1015 concert on October 15, rapper Nicki Minaj eloquently praised first ladies Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton while attacking the presidential candidate’s wife: “…’cause Barack needed a Michelle, bitch, and Bill needed a motherfucking Hillary, bitch. You better pray to God you don’t get stuck with a motherfucking Melania.”
