On Monday night, Trevor Noah made a rare, but desperate plea to President Donald Trump.
Noah began by mocking Trump’s summer vacation, saying he has “a lot of time on his thumbs” and addressed the tweets attacking CNN host Don Lemon and NBA All-Star LeBron James over the weekend. He then showed a graphic showing pictures of other black celebrities Trump has feuded with including Reps. Maxine Waters (D-CA), Frederica Wilson (D-FL) and John Lewis (D-GA), Al Sharpton, and Stephen Curry.
“So once again, President Trump is feuding with a famous black person who dared to criticize him and now it has gotten all this attention, which makes me wonder… WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO?!?” Noah shouted to the president. “WHY DO YOU IGNORE ME, DONALD?!? EVERY NIGHT, I’M OUT HERE! WE EVEN WROTE A BOOK!”
He then plugged his book The Daily Show with Trevor Noah presents The Donald J. Trump Presidential Twitter Library, a compilation of Trump’s most notable tweets.
The Daily Show host told his audience that Trump going after LeBron James “wasn’t surprising,” but what was surprising was First Lady Melania Trump expressing support for the future LA Lakers star.
“Guys, I’m starting to think that Melania is not happy in her marriage. Because I mean, this is insane! Now Melania’s saying she wants to visit LeBron’s school?!? Noah reacted. “So English may not be her first language, but she clearly is fluent in throwing shade.”
