About The Daily Show:
Trevor Noah and The Daily Show correspondents tackle the biggest stories in news, politics and pop culture.
The Daily Show with Trevor Noah airs weeknights at 11/10c on Comedy Central.




  • *CONGRATULATIONS* to Trevor Noah for finally showing what type of person he really is in his latest promo commercials for his so-called show. He tells us we should “ROAST CORONAVIRUS SO HARD” He states coronavirus you got so many zits it looks like your exfoliating with pizza crust. Then. The coronavirus starts to cry and Trevor feels sorry for what he said to the coronavirus and says “ AHH, I FEEL BAD NOW” Unfortunately, this is not comedy. This is exactly how Trevor really feels about a Covid Virus that has Led to the following. *HE FEELS BAD ABOUT OFFENDING CORONAVIRUS WITH THE BELOW ATROCITIES THAT HAVE OCCURRED TO ALL OF HUMANITY AND OUR FAMILIES* A dramatic loss of human life worldwide. The economic and social disruption caused by the pandemic is devastating: tens of millions of people are at risk of falling into extreme poverty. The pandemic has decimated jobs and placed millions of livelihoods at risk. Nearly half of the world’s 3.3 billion global workforce are at risk of losing their livelihoods No income means no food. Border closures, trade restrictions and confinement measures have disrupted domestic and international food supply chains in which we all suffer. PLEASE WAKE UP AMERICA People like this who have a voice to millions of people worldwide should not have the ability to continue to have a platform as the LATE SHOW to spew his one-sided agenda to the masses. Trevor. As well as many other public figures in similar positions need to be held accountable for their one sided globalist views based on their beliefs and not be so closed minded that there are others who believe differently and that’s ok. That’s why we live in AMERICA and have law and a CONSTITUTION that our country was founded upon. Fortunately for Trevor. Since he is such a beloved character for the globalist agenda his past exploits were quickly squashed by the globalist in which he works for within BIG MEDIA. NOTE: A lot of people have not seen the real Trevor and have not forgot his past. Its funny that in such a CANCEL CULTURE we live in now he wasn’t cancelled long ago for his supposed offensive/hateful comments which were much more offensive than the majority of the unfortunate cancelled individuals of today. WHICH, by the way means anyone who speaks derogatory towards the left and their agenda who does not agree to their personal opinions. If you do. You are deemed a liar, conspiracy theorist, white supremacist or domestic terrorist. His show is supposed to be an Award-winning program that examines the day's biggest news stories in politics, pop culture, entertainment, sports and more. That description is the furthest from the truth. The show is simply about a puppet who is would be clinically deemed Self-Absorbed. Remember folks TREVOR SAYS YOU MUST TRUST SCIENCE. So, here is the clinical description of a Self-Absorbed person which is simply another term for a narcissistic personality. They are always on the defensive. They do not see the world from another person’s eyes. Anyone who opposes his views. They don’t see the big picture. A self-absorbed person thinks the world is just about them. They are imposing. They always think they are superior to others. They are so consumed by their own world and self-image They are extremely opinionated. They hide their insecurities behind a cloak of success. They devalue others. Constructive criticism is okay, but self-absorbed people always take criticism too far and use it as a weapon to allow them to devalue others. They can be arrogant. This is because they feel they are so important and better than every other person. A self-absorbed person can often be egotistical. They hide who they are. coming across as pretentious They are extremely selfish. They think they are great and the world out there is wrong. The previous is just one persons opinion as allowed for by the the Bill of Rights which are the first 10 Amendments to the Constitution. It spells out Americans' rights in relation to our government. It guarantees civil rights and liberties to the individual-like freedom of speech, press, and religion. NOTE: These rights should not be compromised no matter left or right when given a platform to promote ones-self and their personal beliefs. All issues should be equally presented and considered by all parties involved and not be suppressed/withheld as they are in todays society.

  • Until all lives truly matter equally to all, #BLM needs to be spoken, shouted, and properly upheld. Counting all people of colour as Black doesn't advance Black culture in the way you may hope. All of us **mixed** people, in History and now, we can't just be called "Black," sans explanation of what that means, as that's some White, "One Drop Rule," racist bullshit, from cultural Whites not wanting us mixed folks counted as their genetic kin. Having some Black Ancestors doesn't automatically make one culturally Black, just as being mainly, but not solely, of European descent doesn't make one White. Some of the people being credited herein are genetically more European-American than African-American, and may have felt themselves to be so culturally, as well. That needed to be spoken of here. The mixed people mentioned here wouldn't have become who they were without **all** of their African, European, and Indigenous Ancestors. They come from *three* continents, genetically and culturally. Referring to them as "Black" implies something else, keeping their full heritage partially hidden, as if their being mixed is shameful, and important to be ignored. It's how White people would describe them, "just Black." Don't take from us mixed people our full identities, as White settlers took cultural identities from Africans and American Indigenous peoples. Rather, credit us as who and what we were and are. We all have two, sometimes three, or four continents, within us, counting our African, Asian, European, and Indigenous American heritage. Without "The Swirl," **none of us** would be here (including Trevor Noah). Instead of following White bigots, crediting all mixed people as "African Americans," mixed people should think of themselves as mixed/blended. We're becoming our own thing over here, and it's not for anyone from either/any side to declare ownership of our identities, including in History. Mixed people belong to all groups from whom they/we derive(d) identity. It doesn't matter whether anyone likes it or not: I exist, and I'm an Earthican man of colour. Others of colour, especially in the Americas and Europe, need more recognition, but when they/we are recognised, put them/us in the context of their/our *entire* families. Because I have permanently darker pigmentation than purely White people, I have been called racist names by Whites who can't decide where I am "beneath" them, "them" being trashy, (presumably) White assholes, who are beneath me, not because they're White, but because they're ignorant trash. Neither they, nor other people of colour, get to tell us/me what we/I are/am. We minorities get to tell majorities what we are. As Earthicans, all contributions of all humans are ours to claim, for good and for ill. We are descended of some of those Europeans who stole land and labour, of the Natives from whom the land was taken, of Africans, whose entire lives and personhood were stolen, and in some part, of Asians, depending on where one lives in the U.S.. Our/my kind, blended people, we are obviously the future of humanity. All the historical pains and future progress will fall on our shoulders, together. Embrace everyone of good conscience as kinfolk in this endeavor. Until all people consider ALL people as equal, we need to lift up those held down, everywhere, by colonialism, and the Settler mentality. Those who aren't blended yet, who live on that "top rung" of White Privilege, recognise that you aren't the best, just the lucky, in the West. We, your kinfolk, won't let you pretend to be better than anyone else. Those held down, recognise us mixed folks as family and allies, not enemies. I'm not *asking* anyone for permission for us to exist. I'm telling you who and what we/I are/am, whether you like and accept us/me or not. We can't excise genes nor culture from ourselves, so accept us/me, and all mixed people, as we are. I am Earthican. You are my family.

  • They're used interchangably now, but keep in mind that Onesimus had explained the process of innoculation - literally introducing the live microorganism into someone's body, whereas vaccination usually has a treated microorganism (either dead/inactivated or weakened) or in the case of the mRNA vaccines - not a microorganism at all, but something that looks like it so your immune system knows what to look out for! Anyways, I loved this video and I'm happy to say that I already knew all of these facts 😁 The more you know!!

  • 0:18 is the first mistake of this video. "Black doctors are NOT everywhere." As a black medical student who has spent plenty of time rotating in different hospitals, even in predominantly black neighborhoods, I have found it exceptionally difficult to find a sizeable amount of black doctors especially in major leadership roles at the hospital. But you know what I see making up the majority ofcafeteria staff, janitorial staff e.t.c? black people and other minorities. According to the AAMC, black doctors make up a whopping 5% of physicians. Everything is NOT okay. We are not there yet. www.aamc.org/data-reports/workforce/interactive-data/figure-18-percentage-all-active-physicians-race/ethnicity-2018
