Trevor Noah Makes Valid Point

The state of the United States presidential race has drawn a lot of attention from media outlets around the world because of the worsening feud between Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and Republican candidate Donald Trump. The continuing harsh speech coming out of both camps has made voters and onlookers question the democratic process in the country. Most of the problems though have come out of the Trump camp. His words and past actions have repeatedly promoted a society that fails to meet democratic ideals.

 

Trevor Noah of the “Daily Show” compared Trump to the African dictators that he became familiar with while growing up in South Africa. On the evening of Thursday, October 13, 2016, Noah told the visitors to the PaleyFest Daily Show with Trevor Noah panel that Trump has a lot of “charisma,” but that the attraction mimics a car crash. He stated that people do not want to see it but can’t look away. He noted that all of the African dictators share this same trait. He then explained how he initially had this opinion but wrote it off as a “third world country” viewpoint. Trump’s rise to power has proven that he was initially right: Third world dictators take advantage of the “fear and desperation” of the masses.

 

Noah is not the first person from inside or outside of the country who has thought this about Trump. Trump’s debate statements about setting up a special prosecutor and jailing Clinton seem straight out of a dictator’s playbook.

Trevor Noah Not Happy About Trump’s Sexual Assault Accusations

The new host of The Daily Show is disgusted by Trump in general, and now he’s even more disgusted. The new disdain for Trump comes amid allegations of sexual assault. Trump has been accused by several women of groping and kissing without consent. The allegations go all the way back to the 80s.

 

Noah talked about Trump’s sexual assault allegations on the most recent edition of The Daily Show. He said that in this way, Trump is actually worse than Bill Cosby. Furthermore, Noah went on to say that he was even more upset about the deniers.

 

Many individuals close to and around Trump are denying that the assaults even took place. Of course, Trump denies the allegations himself and says that they are entirely fictional. One woman came forward, and she is now in her 70s. She said that she was a reporter on an airplane in first class in the 80s and that on the flight, she sat next to Trump. At first, they were having a nice chat over the inflight dinner, but after the dishes were cleared, she said that Trump reached over and groped her and tried to touch her chest and kiss her.

 

Trevor Noah is the new host of The Daily Show, and he’s doing well in this role so far. Noah was born and grew up in South Africa, and he made his way to The Daily Show as a comedian and radio host. He has also acted in some films and TV shows.
