Daily Show Unloads on 'Racist Maniac' Trump

went all-out tonight absolutely savaging Donald Trump for his proposal for a Muslim entry ban. Trevor Noah said Trump has “evolved into a more gruesome form of himself” with this “flatly discriminatory” policy.

And what disturbs him the most isn’t that Trump is crazy, it’s that people are “following the crazy” and Trump is giving them permission to say plenty of insane, racist things.

But correspondent Hasan Minhaj, himself a Muslim, said Trump is absolutely right to keep Muslims out. Oh, not because they’re a danger, but because there’s a “racist maniac” on the loose.

And that was only the tip of the iceberg.

See, after a long explanation of how Trump’s “radical ideology” is trying to bring about a war between Islam and the West, he and Noah could only conclude one thing: “Donald Trump is white ISIS.”

Minhaj demanded that all the “moderate white conservatives” denounce Trump, saying that instead of appreciating the nuances of the ideology, “it’s just easier on my brain to be irrationally afraid of an entire group of people.”
