Trevor Noah Was a Victim of Fake News


-The last time I saw you, you were telling me about
buying stuff for your baby, and then I went out
and bought stuff for your baby. -Yeah.
I made a subtle — I subtly dropped a hint to you that you should
buy me something for my baby. -“I have a baby.
I need stuff.” I´m like, “Okay.
All right.” [ Laughter ]
-Thank you so much. Well, I´m so happy to see you
since the last time I saw you, because, you know, Trump
talks about fake news a lot. You were also a victim
of fake news, which is better than being
a victim of what this said. I read that you
were shot dead recently. And, uh…
[ Laughter ] Were you shocked
when you read this? -I was, I was.
-Yeah. -´Cause I do the shooting.
-[ Laughing ] Yeah. -I was thrown back. You know what´s weird is,
when you see that, you don´t know about it. You´re the last person
to know about it. -Right.
-So everyone, like, phones you, and then everyone could, like,
be phoning your family. And then the weirdest is when
people send you a text going, “Dude, are you dead?”
-Yeah. [ Laughter ]
-And I always go — I go, like, “What do you think
I´m gonna…?” So sometimes I just don´t reply.
-Yeah. And then, it´s like, whatever. -They slowly piece together,
“This is very bad news.” -Yeah.
But I mean, that´s the Internet. Welcome to fake news.
-Welcome to fake news. You and I
are both in the business of talking about politics.
-Yes. -So right now, we´re talking
about the president a lot. -Right.
-I have heard you say that you actually relate to him
not as a politician, but you relate
to him as a stand-up comedian. -Well, I think that´s a part
of Donald Trump I relate to. You know, I always think we try and put Donald Trump
into one box, and I think
he lives in many boxes… [ Laughter ] …one of them being the box
that he´s a stand-up comedian. You probably see it in him. Like, he goes out,
he practices his jokes, he works on his material. You can see him trying it out.
-Yeah. -Like, he´ll be like,
“What do you think? Sheriff Arpaio?
What do you think? What do you think?”
[ Laughter ] And you can feel,
he´s like, “Yeah.” And the crowd cheers,
and he´s like, “Oh, I´m working on that bit.
I´m working on that bit.” And he, like —
he, like, works the material, he grows it,
he goes out there. And then you can feel
when it´s starting to get old, like, he´s like,
“Who´s gonna pay? Mexico!” And some jokes
you feel the crowd sort of like, “Yeah, yeah,
new jokes, new jokes. We get it.” -Yeah, and it is true, like,
´cause “build the wall,” I feel like that
was just a bit that crushed. -That was it. -And then, now he realizes
he has to build a wall. -Yeah. -And it was just
a killer comedy bit. -Well, can you imagine
if we had to do the things we said in our jokes.
-Exactly! -I mean, I would be like, “I don´t want to be
a comedian anymore.” -Yeah. If Larry the Cable Guy
actually had to get ´er done… [ Laughter ] …his life would be impossible. Do you have any notes
on his performance? -Look, I mean,
just work on new material. Try something new.
I was impressed with him today, like, working with
the Democrats. That shook everybody up.
-Yeah. -I was like, “Okay, okay.
That´s something different. That´s something new.” And Republicans were like,
“Wait. I´m sorry, the what? The what? The who?” Even Democrats were like,
“You want to work with us? You want to work with…?” Yeah, this is new. -I mean, do you think Democrats,
when that happens, feels like,
“Is this some weird prank when he reaches out
to be helpful?” -I don´t know.
I don´t know. I think people are just,
like, “Just do it. Just do it now
while he´s, like, here. Just do it.”
-Yeah. -Because Trump goes,
“I walk into a room, let´s make a deal, let´s speak,” And I think Chuck Schumer
knows him well enough. Because, I mean, they used
to hang out in New York. And he´s like,
“Yeah, let´s do it, Chuck. Let´s just do the deal.” And then he walks out,
and he goes to the Republicans, he´s like, “I made a deal.
You´re gonna love it.” [ Laughter ]
-Yeah. -And Mitch McConnell
probably got so angry, his neck started wobbling. He was just like —
He was just like, “Waaah! Waah!” [ Laughter and applause ] -And there is —
It´s scary. Obviously, a lot of people
are scared by Trump, but you do — you see
some humor in it, as well. -Well, here´s the tough thing. You know, people say to me,
they go, like, “Why would you guys laugh?” Two things.
First of all, I´ve had, you know,
the pleasure and I guess
I´ve been blessed enough to travel the world,
see many countries. There are many countries
I´ve been to where people
don´t have free speech, and one of biggest things
that an authoritarian leader tries to remove from you is the ability
to make jokes about them. You know, in South Africa,
you couldn´t tell jokes about the government
during apartheid, and that´s something
that I cherish. Like, a person
is less frightening when you are laughing. It doesn´t diminish
what they do, but it´s how we cope
with these situations. And so for me, you know,
when I look at Donald Trump, I go, he is a paradox
for me, emotionally. On the one hand,
I am terrified at the notion that he´s the president of the most powerful nation
in the world. On the other hand,
I know that I´m gonna wake up and he´s gonna make me laugh. Like, the two things…
-Yeah. -…they co-exist.
-Yeah. -They co-exist.
[ Cheers and applause ] So, like… This is the way I put it.
This is the way — I like to think of it like this. I like to think of it, like,
Donald Trump is basically — He´s an asteroid
headed towards the Earth, and… [ Laughter ] It´s an asteroid,
but it´s shaped like a penis. [ Laughter and applause ] -That´s a very good way
of putting it, yeah. -Yeah. -So it´s like, “Oh, no!”
[ Laughing ] -Exactly!
That´s what I want. That´s all I want. -What do you — Because you are
so well-traveled, what do you think
when you see him talking to world leaders
of other countries? -I´m like, I thank God that we don´t all
speak English around the world. [ Laughter ] You don´t understand
what a difference it makes. Like, I remember traveling
to the Middle East, and I was like,
“Aren´t you guys terrified? Like, he´s loud,
and he´s crazy.” And they´re like, “Oh, no.” People are like,
“It just sounds like he´s speaking Arabic in English.
That is all.” [ Laughter ] Because, like, Arabic is like…
[ Speaking Arabic ] …and then Donald Trump
is like… [ Speaking gibberish loudly ] And people are just like, “Oh!”
It´s, like, “Yeah, I get it.” It´s a cultural thing.
-Yeah. -I don´t think you understand
how cultural it is. Like, you travel
around the world, and there are some places
where they don´t think of Donald Trump
as being as crazy because they don´t understand
the nuances. In English,
he´s completely bonkers. -Yeah.
-Right? Once you translate him,
you find that, like, he just — he loses half of his madness. Not all, but half. -We should, every morning,
translate him into some other language and then have it
translated back to us just to take the edge off of it.

  1. I just added a friend on facebook yesterday just to confirm if he was actually dead, and later it was actually true he was. RIP bro.

  2. I'm so happy that when other people want to leave America because of Trump, Trevor moves to America to make fun of Trump.

  3. I would reply "yes I am" just to see what the reaction would be…….
    ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ

  4. I find this hilarious. Trevor is so full of crap on his show. Seth Meyers since Trump won is full of crap. I'm no trump voter but Obama gets a pass for 8 years and these schmucks are the victims of fake news! Hilarious! And the anti trump posts. Wow. Where you people getting your news?

  5. The time has passed for God's Hand of Judgement to be withheld on all who have come against God's annointed in the White House President Trump. This is what will happen from here on out.

    God will deal with everyone who has come against Him. This will include former Presidents from Jimmy Carter, George Bush Sr. and Jr., Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. Two will be taken by God and the other 3 will be shaken. Obama and Hillary Clinton will wind up in prison. Bill Clinton and George Bush Jr. will be severely dealt with by God.

    George Soros is going down very soon.

    Eventually, CNN, MSNBC or any other fake news media as it now is will die and God will raise up more righteous news.

    People who have come against Trump will die, get deathly sick, lose jobs, businesses, families, wealth, fame.

    Arrest warrants are coming very soon right after the Fisa memo is released.

    Military type tribunals are coming that will last for some years. There is so much corruption that is going to be exposed over the next several years by The Father, Son and Holy Spirit as God cleans up the country from the top down and as God uses President Trump to drain the swamp of over 30 years of liberal corruption.

    President Trump will come out unharmed and unscathed by all of it. BOTH of his NAMES indicates his God Given Destiny.

    "Donald" means "world ruler, world leader."

    "Trump" means ( check THIS OUT ) "to DEFEAT SOMEONE ( ALL who come AGAINST HIM ) OR SOMETHING ( EVERYTHING THAT COMES AGAINST HIM ) OFTEN IN A PUBLIC MANNER AND IN A PUBLIC WAY."

    Do a word search on BOTH of those names. You will see those meanings ARE ACCURATE.

    Trump defeated EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING WHO CAME AGAINST HIM BEFORE THE ELECTION. HE IS DEFEATING FOR HIS 2 TERMS EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING THAT COMES AGAINST HIM STILL!!!

    TRY TO STOP IT!!!

    GOD IS IN THIS!!!

    "There is NO AUTHORITY EXCEPT FROM GOD."

    The reason why we see this amount of attack on President Trump is because they are all defeated and it is Satan and fallen demons that are raging against Trump through the media and people on YouTube trying in desperation to do or say or find ANYTHING, even making up lies after lies to try to get Trump OUT.

    This is folly. God's Hand is on Trump and THAT IS WHY ALL THE ATTACKS HAVE COME because God is using Trump to bring down what the enemy has built up in over 30 years of liberal infestation and corruption.

    Keep this in mind and watch. EVERYTHING I SAID HERE WILL HAPPEN AND YOU WILL KNOW THAT GOD DID IT.

    "I declare the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not yet done saying, My Council will stand, I will do all of My Good Pleasure."

    I predicted Trump was God's annointed for the next President and I was right.

    Whoever attacks President Trump has touched God's annointed for The White House."Do NOT touch My annointed and do My Prophets NO HARM."

    Whoever comes against ANYONE that is filled with The Holy Spirit, including me, the same results will follow eventually because it is a righteous thing with God to repay with trouble those who trouble us.

    "Vengeance is MIne, I WILL REPAY!" says The Lord.

    THINK TWICE WHAT YOU SAY OR DO FROM HERE ON OUT.

    If you have come against Trump you better repent NOW before its TOO LATE FOR YOU.

  6. notice from the future, Trump working with the Democrats lasted for one and one-half days. then he went right back to being the President of the Lunatic Fringe…This insanity has changed it has gotten crazier. That is all. Future out.

  7. Please, translate his bullshit into Mandarin Chinese so the people here will drop his daughter's shitty ass clothing line.

  8. Love the last line! It's also true that translators do not translate Donald Trump word by word. The don't want to sound stupid.

  9. I used to feel the same way about George W bush. I knew I wasn't going to like what ever he did, but I was going to laugh my ass off at how he did it

  10. Trevor Noah is perhaps the funniest person I have had the side-splitting, pissing my pants pleasure of watching/listening to in a very long time.!
    Oh.. And Trevor is one cool name.!

  11. I could listen to him talk about anything and ill still be swooned. Intelligent, funny, soul warming, he's amazing. Ohhhhhhh and that smile โค

  12. Every morning have it translated into some other language and then back to us, just to take the edge off๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ

  13. From childhood have been a fan for stand up comedian coz of my dad,he never let ur face frown
    Trevor is one on best comedian i have ever known
    True to the say behind every successful man there's a woman and that is a Mother โค๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ’ž

  14. I remember an American movie about some Americans and British characters in Italy, with a scene that had a big car accident; the Italian drivers immediately all jumped out yelling very loudly at each other, in Italian. The movie helpfully provided subtitles to translate what was being said, such as "Your mother is not a very nice person".

  15. I really love Trump, I think he is awesome!

    Just to bad he chose the wrong profession, he is an amazing comedian!

    (Said this joke since he became president, always followed by laughter in Europe xD)

  16. Seth Meyers is the best show host out there working today, hands down.

    But, I just donโ€™t get the big deal surrounding Trevor Noah.

    I canโ€™t figure out how he landed the Daily Show. To me, itโ€™s been unwatchable since he took over.

  17. If I'd seen that fake news I would probably research first to find out if it's really true. But I would definitely be devastated like a girlfriend he doesn't know exists. ๐Ÿ™„
