Trevor Noah Mocks Trump’s ‘Great and Unmatched Wisdom’ Tweet: You Stared ‘Directly Into a Solar Eclipse’

Trevor Noah Mocks Trump’s ‘Great and Unmatched Wisdom’ Tweet: You Stared ‘Directly Into a Solar Eclipse’Comedy Central“If you are facing the biggest crisis of your presidency, what would you do? Probably lay low and focus on putting out this fire. But you see, you’re not Donald Trump, because if you were Donald Trump, you would start a whole new fire,” said Trevor Noah.The Daily Show host dedicated a big segment of his program Monday night to the latest controversy surrounding President Trump: At 11 p.m. Sunday night, he took it upon himself to announce that the U.S. would be withdrawing its troops from northern Syria in order to pave the way for a Turkish invasion, thereby abandoning the Kurdish allies who’ve fought alongside American soldiers to vanquish ISIS, and appealing to the desires of despots Erdogan and Assad (and, by extension, Putin). If that weren’t enough, Kurdish forces are currently holding many of the 10,000 captured ISIS fighters, so leaving the Kurds to the slaughter is not only unconscionable, but could also allow ISIS to rebuild. Officials at the Pentagon reported being “blindsided” by the move. “OK, this is just insane. At 11 p.m. last night President Trump announced—at 11 p.m.—that the U.S. would be pulling its troops out of a key part of Syria. Even crazier is that he didn’t tell the Pentagon,” offered Noah. John Oliver Praises ‘Brave’ Nickelback for Standing Up to TrumpAfter receiving blowback from those who routinely kiss his tuchis—including former U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley, Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham and Mitch McConnell, and even his beloved Fox News, Trump issued the following message (via Twitter, of course):“OK, OK! No, no, no! Before you judge Trump, he is technically correct: There is nobody who matches his wisdom,” joked Noah, adding, “No other person had the wisdom to stare directly into a solar eclipse.” The comedian did, however, have some advice for the Kurds to get on Trump’s good side: “Kurdish forces, you need to phone Trump, and you need to tell him you have dirt on Joe Biden—but if he wants it, he’s going to have to give you military aid, or as I like to call it, a kurd pro quo.” Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

Greta Thunberg mocks Putin's 'kind girl' jibes on Twitter

Greta Thunberg mocks Putin's 'kind girl' jibes on TwitterSwedish climate campaigner Greta Thunberg has responded with wry humour on Twitter to patronising comments made about her by Russian President Vladimir Putin. The 16-year-old changed her Twitter biography to say “A kind but poorly informed teenager” after Putin described her in these terms at a Moscow forum this week. “I’m sure Greta is a kind girl and very sincere,” Putin said of the campaigner who sailed across the Atlantic instead of flying to speak at the UN.

Tucker Carlson Mocks Fox Colleague Shep Smith for Defending Fox News Analyst

Tucker Carlson Mocks Fox Colleague Shep Smith for Defending Fox News AnalystHours after Fox News anchor Shepard Smith blasted frequent network guest and Trump ally Joe diGenova for calling Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano a “fool” during Tucker Carlson’s show, Carlson devoted a Wednesday night segment to mocking Smith’s outrage and defense of their mutual colleague.Inviting diGenova back on his program on Wednesday night, Carlson noted that the Trump-boosting lawyer’s insult of Napolitano caused “quite a firestorm,” reminding viewers that diGenova was responding to Napolitano’s assertion that Trump committed a crime with his phone call to the Ukrainian president. Carlson then took aim at Smith.“Apparently our daytime host who hosted Judge Napolitano was watching last night and was outraged by what you said and, quite ironically, called you partisan,” Carlson exclaimed in a rather jovial manner.The Fox News star went on to air a clip of Smith not-so-subtly calling out Carlson for letting a “partisan guest” attack Napolitano without being challenged. “Attacking our colleague, who is here to offer legal assessments on our air in our work home, is repugnant,” Smith added.“Repugnant!” Carlson mockingly shouted. “Not clear if that was you or me, but someone was repugnant!”Playing another clip of Napolitano reiterating his view that Trump broke the law by seeking election assistance from a foreign leader, the primetime Fox star insisted that “unlike maybe some dayside hosts, I’m not very partisan.”After accusing Smith of being partisan, the conservative talk show host opened the floor for diGenova to continue to rail against Napolitano’s analysis. “I was very truthful last night,” diGenova said.“So that’s why it doesn’t seem honest to me when a host, any host on any channel, including this one, pretends that the answer is obvious,” Carlson stated. “That there is ironclad consensus about what the answer is when there, in fact, isn’t, when it’s a subjective question. That’s not news, is it? That’s opinion.”diGenova, meanwhile, insisted he was absolutely right to claim Trump has not committed any crimes because he’s a former U.S. attorney before taking some additional shots at Napolitano.“He is entitled to feel that way,” the Trump-supporting lawyer declared. “He is a disappointed office seeker. He didn’t get the seat on the Supreme Court that he desperately wanted and he has been mad about it ever since. He showed it yesterday and he showed it so many times over the last year it’s pretty embarrassing actually for me. You know, I love the guy. God bless him.”“I do too,” Carlson replied. “We invited him on tonight by the way. It makes people cynical when you dress up news coverage, when you dress up partisanship as news coverage and pretend that your angry political opinions are news. You know, people tune out.”This wasn't the only time we saw friendly fire on Carlson's show Wednesday night. Earlier in the program, Fox News reporter Trace Gallagher said “most legal analysts, even on the liberal media outlets, acknowledge it would be very difficult to make a case that President Trump broke the law.” This would, however, contradict Napolitano's assessment, as well as a number of lawyers and legal analysts Smith also cited on Wednesday to show Trump broke the law.Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.
