On Monday, the Daily Show’s Trevor Noah tore into Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s performance issues and the overall craziness of the first presidential debate.
“Welcome to the real live version of Twitter, people!” Noah said after playing a montage of the debate’s nastiest moments. “At that point, Lester Holt wasn’t even moderating anymore, he was just eating popcorn like everyone else.”
Noah touched on several Trump lies during the debate, such as when Trump awkwardly claimed that Hillary Clinton has been “fighting ISIS her entire adult life,” to portray Clinton as ineffective against terrorism.
The confused comedian pointed out:
“What? He entire adult life? ISIS has been around since 2004, so that would make Hillary 26 years-old? And she can’t be 26 because Donald Trump wasn’t hitting on her…I don’t understand…”
When asked to address the challenge of race in America, Trump seemed as though he could only relate to places where he owned property.
In at least two examples — Charlotte, North Carolina and Chicago, Illinois — Trump mentioned the fact that he owned property and had investments in those cities.
“When I look at what’s going on in Charlotte, a city I love, a city where I have investments … we need law and order in our country,” he said.
“You need more police. You need a better community, you know relation, you don’t have a good community relations in Chicago. It’s terrible. I have property there. It’s terrible what’s going on in Chicago.”
“Yeah, love this. Donald Trump relates to America like he’s playing a game of monopoly. ‘Yeah, I have that street. I know what it’s like there. Uhm hmm. Uhm hmm. Uhm hmm.'”
But the best part was when Noah busted Trump about his nonchalant attitude of not paying federal taxes.
During the debate, Clinton pointed out that when he was forced to reveal his taxes a few years ago when he was trying to build a casino, Trump’s return showed that he paid zero federal income tax.
“Maybe he doesn’t want the American people, all of you watching tonight, to know that he’s paid nothing in federal taxes, because the only years that anybody’s ever seen were a couple of years when he had to turn them over to state authorities when he was trying to get a casino license, and they showed he didn’t pay any federal income tax,” she said.
“That makes me smart,” Trump replied.
Trump’s idiotic retort set the Daily Show host off:
“I’m sorry, what?” Noah said after playing the back-and-forth on the Daily Show. “Dude, taxes are a responsibility, not something to evade. You’re running to be the No. 1 citizen of a country, you shouldn’t brag about ways you found ways to get around the rules. He’s like, ‘Oh, that makes me smart. See what I did there? Screwed over the American people by not paying my fair share. Vote for me! Vote for me! See what I did there? I duped you all. You can’t see me. I found a way around the rules.’ You know who else found a way around the rules? O.J., no one likes him.”
“I found this very lucrative financial loop hole called crime. Vote for me.”
As Noah (and other people with an IQ too high to buy into Trump’s B.S.) continues to point out, Trump is a con man looking to cheat his way into legitimacy. This race for him is nothing more than the ultimate confirmation of his fragile exaggerated sense of self-worth. And anyone who believes otherwise is simply a fool.
