Trevor Noah Weighs in on Trump vs Bannon: ‘It’s Like Alien vs Sexual Predator’
On Wednesday night, Trevor Noah mocked the ongoing feud between President Trump and Steve Bannon.
The feud began when an excerpt of Michael Wolff‘s new book Fire and Fury showed Bannon blasting Donald Trump Jr.’s “treasonous” meeting with a Russian lawyer in Trump Tower during the election, adding that he would “crack” like an egg if he were to testify on national television.
“Woah, Don Jr. is gonna crack like an egg?” Noah reacted. “Honestly, I don’t even know if that’s a metaphor. Like, I think there’s at least a 50% chance you’d find yolk where a brain should be.”
The Daily Show host also noted Bannon’s explosive allegation that there was “zero” chance that Don Jr.’ didn’t walk into his father’s office with the Russian lawyer.
“This is huge,” Noah said. “Steve Bannon, Trump’s dude, not only accused Trump’s second dumbest son of collusion, but he’s also accusing the president of being in on it and then lying to the American people about it.”
He then warned his viewers to “buckle up” for Trump’s brutal statement regarding Bannon, saying that when he lost his job, he also “lost his mind.”
“Ohhhh damn!” Noah exclaimed. “Imagine being told by Donald Trump that you’ve lost your mind.”
Noah admitted he enjoyed watching this fight, but he said he wasn’t sure who he should “root for.”
“Steve Bannon beefing with President Trump? It’s like Alien vs Sexual Predator,” Noah quipped.
He then took a moment to acknowledge that this was the first time that someone in “Trump’s inner circle” has said that the Russia collusion “is as bad as it seems.”
