Trevor Noah: Without Liars Fox News Would ‘Be a Bunch of Empty Couches and a Sexual Harassment Settlement’
Daily Show host Trevor Noah took umbrage at Fox News’ umbrage over the coverage of the now-concluded Mueller investigation, and said that without “conspiracy theorists, propagandists, and liars, Fox News would be a bunch of empty couches and a sexual harassment settlement!”
On Tuesday night’s episode of The Daily Show With Trevor Noah, the host covered the fallout from Attorney General William Barr‘s four-page memo on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
Deriding Fox News as “Trump TV,” Noah played clips of several Fox hosts decrying the media coverage of the Russia story, including one of Sean Hannity promising to “hold every liar, every propagandist, every conspiracy theorist accountable.”
“Whoa, whoa, Sean Hannity, pump the brakes!” Noah said. “If you got rid of all the conspiracy theorists, propagandists, and liars, Fox News would just be a bunch of empty couches and a sexual harassment settlement!”
To cheers from the audience, Noah added “Slow down! I’m not saying no one on the left got the collusion thing wrong, but these people — these people don’t get to say shit about conspiracy theories and political lies!”
He then turned his attention to the Trump White House’s effort to paint Trump as the victim, and said “Yeah! These Democrats should be ashamed! They used this investigation to try and take down the president! If you want to take down the president, you do it the right way! By claiming he was born in Kenya! This is disgusting!”
