We love it when so-called “comedians” from South Africa can’t understand the mood of the electorate. Bear in mind this was before Donald Trump was declared the winner. He must be inconsolable right about now.
With Donald Trump doing significantly better than predicted in many states on election night, Daily Show host Trevor Noah opened his show by admitting he was “shitting his “pants” over the results and by America’s “hate.” He also declared it the “end of the world.” Noah mourned, “I’m Trevor Noah. We are live across many channels. Thank you so much for tuning in. It is election night, 11PM on the east coast. 8 out west and 9am tomorrow in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, which is where we may soon want to live. This is it, the end of the presidential race and it feels like the end of the world.”
Continuing the freak out, Noah trashed the United States: “I’m not going to lie. I don’t know if you’ve come to the right place for jokes tonight because this is the first time throughout this entire race where I’m officially shitting my pants. I genuinely do not understand how America can be this disorganized or this hateful.”
Just keep talking, pal. Just keep talking.
