On Monday’s Daily Show, Trevor Noah reacted to Donald Trump’s weekend Twitter storm by calling the president a “proven troll.” Just days after Jeff Sessions was accused of having ties to Russia, Trump distracted the world by tweeting that Obama wire-tapped him.
“Oh shit! This is the biggest story ever,” Noah joked about the latest scandal. “Even bigger than last week’s biggest story ever, when the attorney general was caught lying about his contacts with Russia!” He added, “Donald Trump is the only person who thinks the best way to distract from a scandal is to start an even bigger scandal.”
“If you’re going to accuse a former president of committing a major federal crime,” Noah said, “at least show that you have some appreciation for the gravity of what you’re doing.” Noah remarked that Twitter was not the place for such a claim, and pointed out that Trump misspelled “tap” as “tapp.”
“How are you going to take on a two-term president when you can’t even handle a three-letter word?” Noah asked, saying, “The extra ‘p’ is for ‘pussy.’”
