Trevor Noah on Mira Ricardel’s Departure: Is the White House ‘Running Out of People We Know to Fire?’


Late night host Trevor Noah brought up the White House’s latest staff move during his most recent show.

On Wednesday, the news broke that following First Lady Melania Trump‘s statement showing her displeasure at deputy national security adviser Mira Ricardel, Ricardel will be transitioning out of her role.

According to the statement sent out by White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders announcing the move, “Mira Ricardel will continue to support the President as she departs the White House to transition to a new role within the Administration.”

The statement adds: “The President is grateful for Ms. Ricardel’s continued service to the American people and her steadfast pursuit of his national security priorities.”

Speaking of the news, Noah had some thoughts about Ricardel leaving as well as Mrs. Trump’s unexpected move.

“Sweet lord, Melania does not mess around!” he said. “We barely hear from her and then when she does speak it is to fire somebody?”

Then he said this: “Whatever this lady did must have made Melania so mad because you realize Trump cheats on her and she’s pretty chill about it but then Melania goes on a flight and she is all of a sudden she’s like ‘bitch took aisle seats.'”

He then added: “And like honestly, I don’t even know who this is, Mira Ricardel — who is this person that they are firing? Like they are running out of people we know to fire. This is like Walking Dead Season 6, oh no they killed Derek?”
