Trevor Noah shakes his head at Trump’s Asia trip

Trump is in Asia this week, and he’s already made quite a bit of fodder for late night comedy.

On Monday’s Daily Show, Trevor Noah just couldn’t wrap his head around some of Trump’s actions in Asia so far, particularly his visit to meet Shinzo Abe in Japan.

“I don’t know what’s worse — that Trump still thinks Japan has samurai, or that he thinks samurai warriors were trained in missile defense,” Noah said of Trump’s message to Japan suggesting the nation of samurai should shoot down North Korean missiles.

“Poor Japan, man. Once again they have to deal with an out-of-control monster with tiny hands,” he joked, showing a picture of Godzilla next to Trump.

At one point, Trump gave a backhanded compliment about Japan’s economy. “You know, someone should tell Donald Trump to always stop speaking after his first sentence, because every time, that’s where it goes wrong,” Noah said, before giving examples.

Looking forward to the week ahead, Noah pointed out Trump now “heads to South Korea, where he will probably shove chopsticks up his nose and pretend that he’s a walrus.”
