President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey Tuesday, and while the administration’s excuse was that Comey recently misspoke about Hillary Clinton’s emails, Trevor Noah pointed out that it might have to do with the fact that Comey was investigating Trump’s ties to Russia.
“You can’t just fire the FBI director,” Noah said on The Daily Show Tuesday night. “Like, I mean, if he’s gone, who’s going to investigate Russia’s ties to… ohhhh.”
As Noah has explained before, Trump reminds him of an African dictator, but with this latest move, “Right now, even Africans are watching this going, ‘Yo, yo, yo, yo! Donald Trump does not f**k around, yeah?”
“This is a blockbuster!” Noah said. “It is still breaking, and tomorrow we will know much more. But, I just have to share with you the reason that Trump is giving for firing Comey…It is a master stroke.”
“This is insane!” Noah remarked of Trump’s excuse. “Do you understand the excuse Trump is giving? Trump is basically saying he is doing this because of what Comey did to Hillary.”
“That’s the most gangster excuse.”
