Trevor Noah: GOP Will Do Anything For a Conservative SCOTUS, ‘Even If It Means Normalizing Sexual Assault’
On Monday night, Trevor Noah reacted to the latest developments of the ongoing controversy surrounding Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
Over the weekend, The New Yorker published a report revealing a second accuser who alleged Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a college party.
“If the allegations are true, then there seems to be a pattern of behavior and the GOP’s Supreme Court pick is in trouble,” Noah said. “Also, I don’t understand why guys are still whipping out d**ks. I mean, I know this happened a long time ago, but that’s my point. Like, why are guys whipping out d**ks? No party has ever been made better by a d**k being whipped out.”
The Daily Show host mocked Kavanaugh for pointing to his calendar as part of his defense, saying it’s “pretty ballsy” of him since it would likely not “hold up in his court.”
He then took aim at a CNN focus group of female Republicans who defended Kavanaugh, one of them who referred to a judge as a “boy scout.”
“You may know him as a boy scout, but don’t forget, Kavanaugh’s college roommate says that he was ‘frequently incoherently drunk,'” Noah reacted. “So there’s another side of him. There’s a possibility that he did some of these things. And maybe that he was so drunk, he forgot.”
Noah also blasted another Republican in the focus group who dismissed Dr. Christine Blasey Ford‘s allegation as “maybe a touch.”
“Wow, ‘maybe a touch?’ That’s a novel way to describe a guy pinning a fifteen-year-old girl to a bed and putting his hand over her mouth,” Noah continued. “Like, she makes it sound like Kavanaugh trapped her in a room just to brush some lint off her shoulder. That’s a super broad definition of ‘touch.'”
“I get why Republicans are doing this. Getting five conservative judges onto the Supreme Court is something they’ve been dreaming of for 40 years, so they’ll do anything to get it done, even if it means normalizing sexual assault,” Noah added.
