Trevor Noah makes fun of President Joe Biden
South African comedian Trevor Noahis still the talk of the town (and Twitter) after his successful night hosting the White House Correspondents’ Dinner on Saturday. Noah, who hosts The Daily Show on Comedy Central, did not hold back when he took centre stage at the event – taking swipes at former president Donald Trump and some prominent Republican figures, including Florida governor Ron De Santis.
“Mr President thank you for being here, thank you for having me here and I was a little confused about why me, then I was told that you get your highest approval ratings when a bi-racial African guy is standing next to you. So what did you say Joe, I’m glad that I could do my part and hopefully this will work,” Noah said.
Trevor Noah further took aim at CNN, which is bracing for a legal battle with its former star, Chis Cuomo, who was sacked from his show for allegedly using the network’s resources to find information on some of the women who had accused his brother, New York governor Andrew Cuomo of s. misconduct.
“What those people don’t understand is that you guys have integrity, you would never allow personal connections to affect your ability to be good journalists. Isn’t that right Chris Coumo? Where is Chris by the way? Is he here? Couldn’t make it?” Noah said.
Another person Noah targeted was GOP member Matt Gaetz, who has been accused of having paid a girl.
“President Biden has led the country through some really dark times since he took the office, the covid pandemic, the war in Ukraine, the launch of CNN plus. And don’t forget he’s also had some major legislative successes you know in his first year in office. I might add you know he got a bipartisan infrastructure bill passed that we do everything from fixing America’s road and bridges to modernizing school buses which Matt Gaetz his girlfriend is very excited about.
