Daily Show host Trevor Noah had some blunt words for President Donald Trump and first daughter Ivanka Trump. The late night host savaged Trump’s decision to officially bring his daughter into his administration and called Ivanka a “liar” for reversing a previous claim that she would stay apolitical.
“Remember how Donald Trump and Ivanka promised they wouldn’t turn the White House into a mom and pop store?” he asked. “No nepotism. Remember that? Well clearly they don’t.”
Noah then played a clip of an interview with Ivanka Trump and Leslie Stahl, in which Trump clearly foreclosed any chance of a White House role.
“People think that you’re going to be part of the administration, Ivanka,” asked Stahl. “Um no, I’m going to be a daughter,” said a smiling Ivanka.
“And a liar,” quipped Noah, who then detoured into news that former South Korea President Park Geun-hye would be jailed for corruption.
“Wow, a president impeached, removed from office and thrown in jail. Imagine that,” said Noah, “No, no, seriously, let’s all close our eyes and imagine that”
