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.
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.
