On Tuesday night, Trevor Noah defended First Lady Melania Trump after she was slammed by critics for wearing stilettos when leaving for Houston, TX earlier that morning in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.
The Daily Show host kicked off the show by highlighting North Korea’s latest missile launch that flew over Japan, but people “weren’t talking about it” because “Melania Trump apparently did something much worse…she went to Houston wearing high heels.”
“I don’t know why anyone should care what anyone wears when they’re on their way to help people,” Noah shamed her critics. “Like who cares?”
He then made the observation that no one criticizes what Pope Francis wears and he “looks like he’s going to a P Diddy party.”
“I know some people are like, ‘No Trevor, it’s not about that. It’s about sensitivity. You don’t wear things like that to a disaster zone,'” he continued. “I understand that, but in Melania’s defense, she lives in a permanent disaster zone and that’s what she always wears.”
He concluded by telling everyone to “cut her some slack.”
