Trevor Noah’s hypocritical Trump bashing ignores race troubles in South Africa

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

Many South Africans only see their country discussed in international news when it’s about the problems they’re having, so when it was announced that one of their own, Trevor Noah, would succeed Jon Stewart as host of the Daily Show, it was a moment of pride.  

Sure some who knew his politics were critical of the choice, but many who had never heard of Trevor Noah wanted to give him a chance.

Then came Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and like all late night talk show hosts, 99.99% of Hollywood celebrities, and anyone else in that orbit - things changed.

Watch as I provide the diagnosis of an obvious case of Trump Derangement Syndrome.

The jabs at Trump and the American people for being ignorant are ironic considering one of his anti-Trump tweets came just days after both the South African President Jacob Zuma and the leader of the third party in their parliament, Julius Malemba of the Economic Freedom Fighters, pushed for white land to be expropriated.

There were crickets on his twitter page regarding Mr. Zuma or his own country's dire situation that has led it to the brink of a real race war.

The silence on the state of affairs in his home country is alarming.

You may remember too that as Noah took the job at the Daily Show, some people pointed out that he had made some controversial jokes about women and Jews.

I don’t like the PC police going after comedians for their jokes but in the current climate, comedians like Noah, Sarah Silverman and Amy Schumer have come to reap what they’ve sewn when they paint Trump and his supporters as racist, bigoted, antisemites.

There’s a huge problem with antisemitism and anti-Israel sentiment in South Africa where many somehow equate the old system of Apartheid to what Israel does today and that antisemitic sentiment is becoming more brazen.

Imagine if this was happening in America and think about the outrage from someone like Trevor Noah and the blame he would undoubtedly throw at the feet of Trump and his supporters?

So why is he is silent when this is happening right in his own country?

Trevor Noah is an anti-Trump hack, unwilling to acknowledge the problems facing his own country but instead with all the condescension you’d expect from Hollywood, he’s well on his way to a severe case of Trump Derangement Syndrome.

What a mistake! You look at him and he looks so green. You dont even see a glimpse of intelligence in
his eyes. Here is a review : According to Nielsen, the Comedy Central show’s viewership has declined by 37% since Jon Stewart left The Daily Show. Noah reached his highest rating with his first episode, which is very telling.

So a white person criticizing Obama is racist, but a black person criticizing Trump is not?

Trevor Noah, just another Hollywood Half-Wit. He,s there because of his good looks (black) and his political correctness ( he thinks Hillary is open and honest ) . Lets just try to ignore these intolerant assholes, nothing good ever comes from them.

“Trevor Noah and Bill Maher et al know they are adored by lots of clapping seal fans and have found their niche and meal ticket. Not much to think about, just stay on point and the laughs (and money) will keep on coming.”

I call them professional fools. They trade in infantile snark and mockery rather than substance and their self-absorbed narcissistic flowers think they are profound.
“Such a little man. Such a waste of skin.”

Not even clever, just being an ungrateful jerk.

Trevor Noah is a Black Racist, who like Whiny Bill Maher and Doofus John Oliver have become well know by taking advantage of the ignorance of their audiences. They cater to the left wingnut, social justice warriors and paid Soros Goons that create chaos and worship on the altar of anarchy. Noah comes to America and acts like he has something meaningful to say regarding American politics, and all his commentary amounts to is hate filled diatribe directed at Trump the only guy that makes sense in their wounded democracy. Noah enjoys the benefits of his acid tongue which he would not be able to wag so liberally back in Africa, and in America he has the freedom to trash the very country that has accepted him to their shores. A typical unappreciative, immigrant parasite from another shit stinking country. Remember if their country was so great, why did they leave it and come to a country they so hate, and have nothing good to say about it?

I’ve tried to watch Trevor Noah, but he’s as boring as hell. I just can’t.

Ok, so I had no idea who this Trevor was, I suppose it shows how often(never) I watch the “Dailyl Show”.

Christopher Wilson,
You nailed it!

When you lack integrity, and you no longer listen to your conscience, this is the type of person that you turn out to be.

These people throw around the words racist and bigot like they’re beyond reproach. They remind me of a skunk showing up and spraying it’s stench around. They don’t really win an argument or gain followers.
As far as Trump being an “Antisemite” well somebody had better tell Benjamin Netanyahu. He thinks Trump is a great friend of Israel…
