Trevor Noah Kicks Off Daily Show Premiere by Promising to Continue ‘The War on Bullsh*t’

trevor noahTrevor Noah kicked off his inaugural Daily Show tonight by addressing how “weird” this transition is, thanking Jon Stewart, and promising to continue “the war on bullshit” that Stewart spoke of in his final Daily Show last month.

Noah got all of the awkwardness out at the top before continuing things in true Daily Show fashion: riffing on the Pope’s visit––”he rolls humble”––and the departure of John Boehner, to which Noah cried, “Why leave now? I just got here!”

But when Jordan Klepper came on to report on the transition of a man named John and the scramble to replace him with a younger, fresher face… well, you can probably guess where this is going…

There were a few other jokes about Noah’s first night sprinkled throughout the show.
