New Daily Show Host Compares Donald Trump to ISIS

New Daily Show host Trevor Noah on Monday compared Donald Trump to the brutal terrorist group ISIS. Noah, whose ratings have plummeted since taking over for Jon Stewart, mocked, “Our top story, ISIS. They are a lot like Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.” 

The comic added, “When it first showed up, we all thought, ‘Eh. This probably won't last more than a month or so.’ And yet, here we are, November of 2015 and both are as powerful as ever.” 

In April, Noah had to deal with criticism for jokes deriding Jews and Israel

In March, he joked that the United States was worse than Apartheid South Africa

A transcript of the joke is below:
