‘Telling Nature to go F*ck Itself’: Trevor Noah Breaks Down Trump’s Paris Climate Withdrawal
Late night comedians — of course — had a field day with news that the United States would formally withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement.
Daily Show host Trevor Noah led the pack last night suggesting that the whole announcement reminded him of an episode of The Bachelorette.
“He announced it like it was an episode of The Bachelorette,” said Noah. “Earth we had a great time in the hot tub. But I gotta give a rose to coal.”
Noah then complimented (but not really) the style of the roll out, calling it a “pretty gangsta move.”
“Telling nature to go fuck itself while standing in a garden is a pretty gangta move. I’m not gonna lie,” said Noah. “The only way that would have been more messed up would have been if there was a Polar Bear standing in the background.”
… That would have been pretty messed up.
After a week of internal back and fourths, Donald Trump finally decided to pull the U.S. out of the international agreement. It was largely viewed as a triumph for the Bannon wing of the administration at the expense of moderates (supposedly) led by Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner.
One of President Obama’s signature second term foreign policy achievements, the climate accords united 196 countries. The United States now joins Nicaragua and Syria as the only nations not a party to the agreement.
