This has been the most scandal-filled 10 days in American politics in years, but you wouldn’t know it if you were watching Fox News. On Wednesday’s Daily Show, Trevor Noah had some harsh words for the conservative news network for trying to downplay the Comey and Russia stories.
“This is by far the biggest Trump scandal…until the next one,” Noah said. “To not acknowledge the gravity of this Comey memo, you’d have to be willfully ignorant. Aggressively ignorant. In fact, you’d have to be Fox News.”
Despite news that Trump fired FBI Director James Comey because he was investigating the president’s ties to Russia, and further news that Comey has a memo saying Trump asked Comey not to investigate Michael Flynn, Fox News somehow found a way to turn this against Obama, with Fox & Friends asking to see Comey’s notes on the former president.
“You know, I would just love if one day Barack Obama was like, ‘Uh, I got your notes, uh, right here,’” Noah said, flipping off the camera.
