Trevor Noah tries to keep up with Trump’s insults and lies: ‘He’s confusing bullshit with the truth’

Published

on

“The Daily Show” returned Monday night from a week off, and host Trevor Noah tried to catch up with Donald Trump’s latest insults as if his presidential campaign were a reality TV show.

The real estate tycoon and reality TV star had a busy Thanksgiving holiday week, continuing to defend his suggestions that U.S. Muslims should be tracked in a database and his unsubstantiated claims that “thousands” of Muslims cheered 9/11 from Jersey City, New Jersey.

Noah played a clip of Trump cruelly mocking the physical disability of a New York Times reporter who knocked down the Republican frontrunner’s claims about the Sept. 11, 2001, celebrations.

“Wait, what?” Noah asked, confused and holding a television remote. “How, who, what? What did I miss? I went to the wrong — this is what I get for skipping episodes. Now I have to go back on my DVR and see how we got here.”

Trump has used his fatuous claims about Muslims celebrating the terrorist attacks to justify the unconstitutional tracking followers of Islam as a security measure.

“I think Trump is confusing cheering with screaming,” Noah said. “I also think he’s confusing bullshit with the truth.”

Trump has been unable to show any proof to back his claims, which have been disputed by both law enforcement and members of the news media — including a physically disabled reporter who had written years ago that some suspected celebrants were detained.

That reporter, however, suggested that Trump had greatly exaggerated their numbers and actions.

“Trump started at Nazi Germany politics, worked his way through 9/11, all to reach his ultimate goal: mocking the handicapped,” Noah said. “There’s no coming back from this. In order to stand a chance, surely he’ll have to apologize.”

Nope. Instead, Trump demanded the reporter to stop using his physical disability to “grandstand.”

“Man, I love this show,” Noah said. “There’s so may twists and turns. You think Trump will apologize, then he doesn’t. And then it turns out the disabled journalist is the bad guy. No one saw that coming.”

Published

on

CNN aired a panel that featured “Republican women” defending President Trump’s racist tweets, but failed to mention that they were actually part of a pro-Trump group whose members the network had interviewed in the past.

Ben Carson is Donald Trump’s faulty human shield against accusations of racism

Published

on

Ben Carson is back in the news — after another long absence — because Donald Trump has once again been accused of racism.

This article originally appeared at Salon.

The secretary of Housing and Urban Development is the only African-American member of the president’s Cabinet, and is often trotted out to clean up after Trump makes a mess too obviously problematic for the media to ignore. While Trump has tried to spin his recent racist attacks on four progressive freshman congresswomen as a strategic maneuver meant to manipulate Democratic infighting to his advantage, Carson's re-emergence from his stupor should be a clear indication that the president’s team recognizes the damage that can be caused by his unforced errors.

An illegal trend could be emerging after Trump let Kellyanne Conway off the hook for breaking federal law

Published

on

Federal workplaces are supposed to be free of politics, but a Trump administration appointee used a government forum Wednesday to express support for the president’s reelection.

At a conference on religious freedom hosted by the State Department, an official told the crowd of several hundred people that “hopefully he will be reelected,” referring to President Donald Trump.

It’s illegal for federal employees to engage in political activities while they are on the job.

“It’s a violation of the Hatch Act for a federal official, to say in her official capacity, to hope that the president will be reelected,” said Kathleen Clark, an expert on legal ethics at the Washington University in St. Louis.
