Trevor Noah came back from Thanksgiving break introducing us to someone we all would rather not know: The Planned Parenthood Terrorist. In the segment, he provides us with more support of what seemed fairly evident from the very beginning – the shooter was a
pro-life pro-death extremist.
However, as Noah points out, everyone is not as accepting that this tragedy was a terrorist attack at the hands of an extremist, “Most of the presidential candidates, from both sides, have treated this tragedy respectfully. Well. . . most of them.”
“The Daily Show” host then shares a clip of Ted Cruz answering questions from a reporter with The Texas Tribune. Cruz says:
The media promptly wants to blame him on the pro-life movement when at this point there’s very little evidence to indicate that. . . It’s also been reported that he was registered as an independent and a woman and a transgendered leftist activist.
Yes, Ted Cruz, an actual presidential candidate for the United States of America, regurgitated an internet rumor. It’s like he is Donald Trump’s mini-me. Sure, the suit is too big and the shoes flop around, but for the most part – he nailed it.
After being provided this manna from heaven, The Daily Show couldn’t possibly pass up on the opportunity to troll Ted Cruz. And so, TedCruzTrueFacts.com was born.
Noah then proceeds to point out a major issue among reporters – the inability to call this shooting “terrorism.”
I don’t understand. Why is everyone asking if you can call it terrorism? Just call it terrorism. It’s not like it’s a liquor license. Whose approval are you waiting for, right? The Council Of Terrorism?
He is then joined by Senior Analyst Jordan Klepper who exemplifies exactly why Americans are less likely to call this terrorism.
