On Monday’s Daily Show, Trevor Noah returned from Thanksgiving break to review what he missed in his favorite show, Trumpire. “It’s a thrilling drama about a ruthless tycoon who will stop at nothing in his quest for power,” Trevor says, essentially calling Trump’s campaign a real-life parody of Empire. In order to see what he missed, he presses ‘play’ on the latest episode, in which Donald Trump mocks Serge Kovaleski, a New York Times reporter with a physical disability. Surprised by the insult, Trevor goes back to see what he missed that could have possibly led to Trump’s offensive imitation, because “this is what I get for skipping episodes.”

Over a week ago, Trump suggested America register all Muslims, and the way to do it “would just be good management.” Trevor wonders, “What kind of Dilbert cartoons does he have pinned to his wall?” This suggestion from Trump came just a week after the Paris attacks, but that was not reason enough for America to mimic the Nazi registration of Jews, so Trump came up with another story to incite fear. According to him, thousands of Muslims in America cheered when the towers came down on 9/11. “I think Trump is confusing cheering with screaming. I also think he’s confusing bullshit with the truth,” says Trevor, because there is no evidence that this happened. Trump pointed to an article written by Kovaleski, who wrote for The Washington Post at the time, as evidence to support his claims; however, the article has since been discredited. “What a ride.” says an excited Trevor of his favorite show, “Trump started at Nazi Germany politics, worked his way through 9/11, all to reach his ultimate goal: mocking the handicapped.” Trump even went on to blame Kovaleski for using his disability to grandstand. An incredulous Trevor can only shout, “I love this show!”
