On Monday’s Daily Show, Trevor Noah reacted to news President Trump leaked classified intelligence to Russian ambassadors last week by rubbing it in the president’s face.
“I knew it!” Noah exclaimed, after he said last week the Russians were trolling the president. “No, I knew something was up when we saw President Trump up with the Russians—and they were smiling. There are only two times a Russian man smiles: the day he dies, and this.”
“I mean, once again, this sounds like a story that we would invent, right? Trump invites the Russians into the Oval Office and then during his meeting starts bragging,” Noah remarked, before putting on his Trump impression. “‘I get great intel. I have people brief me on great intel every day,’ and then proceeds to give them the intel. He probably doesn’t even know what ‘intel’ is short for. ‘My intellivision is the best. It gets the highest ratings! The best ratings of all.’”
“What’s really sad about this is that Donald Trump is trying to impress the Russians with the fact that he’s president? They know! The guy’s there like, ‘Yeah, do you guys know that I’m president?’ and they’re like, ‘Yes, that is how we planned it. Of course.’”
