On Thursday night, Trevor Noah addressed the controversial texts that were sent by top investigations in the Robert Mueller investigation.
FBI investigator Peter Strzok was removed from the Russia probe by Mueller after it was discovered he sent anti-Trump texts during the election, calling him a “f**king idiot.”
“Wow, an FBI agent was sending text messages in 2016 saying that Trump is an idiot… how did he know?” Noah asked. “What other secrets is the FBI hiding?!?”
The Daily Show host said he was “disappointed” in Strzok, not because of his political bias but because he “wasn’t covering his tracks.” He gave pointers how to use “code,” which basically were a bunch of emojis.
He read another text from Strzok, which invoked an “insurance policy” if Trump won the election.
“Now, I don’t really know what that text means,” Noah admitted, “but it’s provocative and it gets people going.”
Noah then played a montage of several Trump supporters on Fox News, who have used these revelations to discredit the Mueller investigation. They included Judge Jeanine Pirro, who called for a “cleansing,” Newt Gingrich, who called Mueller “corrupt,” Mike Huckabee, who said this investigation “stinks” more than cabbage cooking in a small kitchen, Sean Hannity, who called the investigation a “witch hunt,” and Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton, who suggested that the FBI should be shut down.
“Wait, do you know what? This may be one of those crazy instances where I think Trump supporters on Fox may actually be onto something,” Noah reacted. “No, because listen to what they’re saying. There’s a law enforcement agency that has some bad apples. And even though it’s not everyone, they’re saying this is enough misconduct to require complete structural reform. Yeah, because you may have only caught one bad cop, but the problem here isn’t that person. It’s the system. That’s what they’re saying. So I agree with Trump’s people on Fox News. Black lives matter.”
