Trevor Noah warns of Trump’s ‘authoritarian tango’ with the press

"That's what you do. You shut down one news organization by alleging that it's all fake. That's your move, right? And then if you get away with it, you can shut down another news network … until all that's left is, 'Breaking news: Has President Trump been working out?'"

During his first press conference in six months Tuesday, Donald Trump attacked CNN reporter Jim Acosta, denying him a question and calling the organization “fake news.” On The Daily Show that night, Trevor Noah blasted Trump for the interaction, calling it “essentially the first step in the authoritarian tango. That’s what you do. You shut down one news organization by alleging that it’s all fake. That’s your move, right? And then if you get away with it, you can shut down another news network, and you can shut down another news network … until all that’s left is, ‘Breaking news: Has President Trump been working out?'”
