Trevor Noah On Trump: “I Think The President Might Be Racist”
Donald Trump has merited the ire of the Internet and a lot of American citizens after a damming story published by the Washington Post reports Trump referred to Haiti, El Salvador and Africa as “sh*thole countries.”
While many tweeted their disgust with the president due to his racist and xenophobic speech, The Daily Show host Trevor Noah used intelligent and comic relief to prove just how ignorant the president’s comments are.
“Guys, I don’t how to break this to you, but I think the president might be racist,” Noah said with a healthy dose of sarcasm. “Wait, here me out. I know I sound crazy. You know what? Personally, as someone from South Sh*thole, I’m offended, Mr. President because not only does he think brown countries are sh*tholes, he thinks, what? We’re never going to know what he said? I mean, don’t get me wrong it might take a few weeks but as soon as the news donkey reaches our village, we’ll be so mad.”
According to The Washington Post, the president grew frustrated after a group of bipartisan senators proposed a compromise that would protect DACA immigrants and also strengthen boarder patrol. Friday morning, (Jan. 12) Trump took to Twitter to refute the post’s story and allege the language he used in reference to the bipartisan pitch was tough, but not what’s being quoted.
The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used. What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made – a big setback for DACA!

Okay, Mr. President, whatever you say
