On Monday, New York’s Jewish comedy royalty were seen embracing Trevor Noah, the new Daily Show host who has been accused of anti-Semitism after people started digging through his Twitter history and found a handful of jokes about Israel.
Yes, at today’s home opener for the New York Mets at Citi Field, Noah was hanging out with Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David:

By becoming a Mets fan, Noah is obviously showing just how seriously he is taking his role as Jon Stewart’s successor. The current Daily Show host’s self-hating obsession with the team has been a long-running joke on the show for over a decade.
Earlier in the day, Bassem Youssef, AKA Egypt’s Jon Stewart, posted this photo with Noah and Seinfeld. If he can’t get the Daily Show gig, he at least wants to be a guest on Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee:
