Wednesday, The Daily Show followed CBS’s lead in trying to shame VP Mike Pence’s wife Karen after it was announced that she would be returning to teaching art to students at a Christian school in Northern Virginia. Because the school is Christian, it holds Christian policies for its students and faculty. Apparently that’s a shocking thing in 2019, as host Trevor Noah took aim at Pence and America's “crazy” right to religious freedom.
Liberals have long honored the power of "satire" to bring the mighty down to size -- when they're conservatives. Liberals are honored and adored. Take The Daily Show on Comedy Central. At least since the days when Jon Stewart brought his "God, I admire you" routine to Democratic candidate John Kerry in 2004, they've been a pliant platform for Democrats. On Wednesday, Daily Show host Trevor Noah offered that to Al Gore, only interrrupting his routine with "right, right" and agreeing with everything. Gore insisted "the vast majority" back him, and not President Trump, on "climate denial."
Whoever decided that people should take the political opinions of comedians seriously forgot to tell the comics that their opinions should be worth serious consideration. Take Trevor Noah (please).
Far-left Daily Show comedian Trevor Noah appeared on ABC’s GMA Day, Tuesday, to gush about just how amazing it was to meet Barack Obama. Talking about his new comedy special, the comic recounted his brain “freezing” and not working as he encountered the Democrat. This is in stark contrast to how Noah talks about Donald Trump, a man the Comedy Central host has compared to an African dictator and an asteroid shaped like a penis.
Although he was careful to lead off by claiming that "nobody is stealing the election, even Trevor Noah, host of Comedy Central's Daily Show mocked in an entertaining way the job performance of Broward County Supervisor of Elections, Brenda Snipes. Noah's biting commentary on Tuesday stands in sharp contrast to many Democrats who for political reasons prefer to remain mum on the subject of Snipes.
Author of the recently released book "Big Game: The NFL in Dangerous Times," Mark Leibovich made an appearance earlier this week on The Daily Show. A major theme of his six-minute chat with host Trevor Noah is that NFL owners are predominantly white, Republican and inept. Echoing former President Barack Obama's "you didn't build that" line for the ages, Leibovich says NFL owners are immature people who just lucked into the ownership of their respective teams.
If you’ve ever known someone with cancer, you probably remember pouring out your support after his or her diagnosis. Was politics on your mind as you put your pen to a sympathy card or picked up the phone to wish the person well? Probably not - you wanted your loved one to be the center of attention.
CNN political analyst and White House Correspondent for American Urban Radio Networks April Ryan appeared on The Daily Show Wednesday night to promote her new book about her time as a correspondent called “Under Fire.” The anti-Trump tone was evident from the beginning of the interview, with Noah and Ryan joking that her birthday wish was for Trump to be out of the White House
Last Friday’s cancellation of Netflix’s new late-night series, The Break with Michelle Wolf, should be a clear indicator that the left’s outrage and anger towards conservatives isn’t doing much for cultural enrichment, much less carving out a compelling comedic platform.
While most of late night television is relentless in its attacks against President Trump and the right, occasionally Trevor Noah’s The Daily Show will criticize the left for being too gungho in its anti-Trump fervor. On the August 16 show, Noah targeted fired FBI agent Peter Strzok for profiting off of his anti-Trump texts by starting a GoFundMe page that has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Whenever the Catholic Church gets into any hot water, the liberal media is always there to fire off some ignorant criticism or scathing tirade. Of course, it’s the perfect opportunity to channel their ire for the Church, so why hold back? Daily Show host and liberal mascot Trevor Noah didn’t hold back with his anti-Catholic monologue on Wednesday.
In a Comedy Central promo, Daily Show host Trevor Noah is shown lecturing Republicans about their opposition to socialism, claiming concerns over the radical left-wing ideology are “all in you mind.” During a recent interview with socialist New York congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Noah dismissed the term as just a political “label.”
