Trevor Noah reacted in shock to Donald Trump’s announcement — or warning, as it were — that he had unshackled himself from whatever shreds of human dignity and restraint had been holding him back.
The Republican presidential nominee issued his warning Tuesday morning on Twitter to GOP lawmakers scurrying away as his poll numbers crater amid boasts of sex abuse and worrisome debate performances.
“You mean the entire time, the shackles were still on?” Noah said, his mouth agape. “The shackles were still on (Monday), when you said this?”
Noah played video clips from a Trump rally, where the candidate called Bill Clinton a sex predator, slurred CNN as disgraceful and attacked Hillary Clinton as crooked and unelectable — as his supporters chanted “lock her up.”
“Lock her up is right,” Trump said, repeating the promise he made during Sunday’s debate to jail his Democratic rival.
Noah sat in stunned silence for a moment, before saying: “That was shackled Trump?”
“You’re already the Hulk, basically,” Noah said. “You can’t go more Hulk than the Hulk.”
He then adopted the Hulk’s characteristic broken English.
“Hulk is like, ‘Now Hulk get really angry,'” Noah said. “What do you mean, you’re already Hulk? ‘No, real Hulk have no pants on. You see balls-out Hulk.’ Oh wow, you mean like Donald Trump? ‘No, no, no — that too far. Hulk opposite of Trump. Hulk hurt buildings, Hulk respect women.'”
