Noah Eviscerates Fox’s Tantaros For Obama Criticism: ‘Are You F*cking Kidding Me?!’

Trevor Noah dedicated his desk segment on Wednesday night’s Daily Show to the news out of Washington that President Barack Obama issued executive action in the fight for gun control legislation. “Something will get done, finally,” noted Noah before adding, “and also, ‘executive action’ sounds pretty cool.”

Not everybody was excited about the President’s action this week of course, as Republican candidates seeking the GOP nomination have unanimously criticized the move to close the so-called “gun show loophole” and enforce background checks. As Noah rolled footage of the President’s teary-eyed address on Tuesday, the comedian somberly noted to the audience, “No matter how opposed to Obama’s policies people may be or how cynical their politics they have to at least acknowledge and respect the raw authenticity of that emotion.”

“Or so you would think.”

The Daily Show then revealed the variety of Fox News coverage following Tuesday’s speech from the White House, where correspondents and anchors lobbied charges of insincerity against the President. Off of Andrea Tantaros‘ charge on Fox News’ Outnumbered that someone should “check that podium for a raw onion,” Trevor Noah dug in with the response so many others thought as well: “Are you fucking kidding me?!” Noah ripped Tantaros even further, decrying it a shame that sensibly-thinking people need to share the title of “human being” with the Fox personality.
