Late-nite comedians have become an embarrassing extension of the Democratic Party.
Instead of aiming to entertain audiences, late-nite hosts spout progressive political talking points while bashing Republicans.
But one late-nite host’s comments about Donald Trump truly crossed the line and illustrated just how biased and broken comedy has become.
Trevor Noah, Jon Stewart’s notoriously unfunny replacement on The Daily Show, constantly rails against Republicans on his show.
However, Noah went beyond scripted comedy and appeared on CNN to give his sincere take on Trump.
In a segment with Brian Stelter, Noah compared Trump to an African dictator.
From The Daily Caller:
Comedian Trevor Noah compared President Donald Trump to an African dictator on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” Sunday and urged Americans to “follow the money.”
“I said from the very beginning that Donald Trump reminds me of an African dictator,” Noah told host Brian Stelter. “And if you know anything about African dictators, the first thing you have to do is follow the money.”
“And you follow the money with the people closest to them,” he continued. “Family members, business associates.”
Stelter praised Noah for sounding like a journalist. The comedian responded by telling Americans to think for themselves.
“I think you, as a person who processes information in the world, good journalists help you think of how to process a story. I think as a critical thinker, you should be able to do these things beyond journalism,” Noah concluded.
“I think we should be trying to build a population of people that are looking at information. That are reading into information. People who are asking questions that go beyond what they’re just told.”
Noah’s assertion is preposterous and insulting for several reasons.
First, Trump is independently wealthy. He wasn’t beholden to any special interest. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton was incredibly cozy with Wall Street.
Second, Noah completely ignores the well-documented quid pro quo deals Bill and Hillary Clinton secured through the corrupt Clinton Foundation.
Bill received hundreds of thousands of dollars from Russian oligarchs for speeches while Hillary was Secretary of State. The Clinton Foundation also received hundreds of millions of dollars from “generous” Russian businessmen who magically received U.S. uranium mining rights on Hillary’s watch.
Finally, Noah’s point is particularly terrible because Trump isn’t committing human-rights violations.
African dictators have a long history of stealing and hoarding resources while expanding their power.
Trump cut taxes, allowing citizens to keep more of their own hard-earned money, and continues to rein in the power of the executive branch.
Meanwhile in Noah’s native South Africa, the country has followed the path of other failed states toward full-blown socialism.
Private property rights are being abolished, and farm lands are being expropriated without compensation.
Noah’s careless remarks illustrate just how much leftists have perverted Americanism; somehow allowing people to keep more of their own money and forcing Congress to do its job instead of ceding responsibility to presidential executive orders have become dictatorial acts.
