After a two week break, Trevor Noah returned to a crapload of news, but as the most recent is always the most interesting, he spent some time on Monday’s Daily Show reacting to Donald Trump Jr’s meeting with a Russian lawyer.
Over the weekend, The New York Times reported that Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, and former campaign manager Paul Manafort met with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, who they thought had damaging information about Hillary Clinton.
“That’s right. Don Jr., Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort met with a Kremlin-linked Russian lawyer to get dirt on Hillary Clinton,” Noah said. “You know what? At this point, it would be easier if the Trump people just told us which Russians they haven’t met with.”
“Now, if you’re looking for evidence of collusion between Trump and Russia, this seems like the smoking gun,” Noah said. But Trump Jr. said the meeting didn’t end up being about Clinton after all. In other words, he tried to collude, but it didn’t work out.
“Baby, baby, baby, you don’t understand,” Noah joked. “I only met with that other woman because I thought she wanted to fuck.”
“It is insane! That is batshit crazy,” Noah remarked. “Donald Jr.’s defense is that he tried to collude? But instead he got Russian catfished?!”
