Appearing on NBC’s Late Night With Seth Meyers on Wednesday, aired early Thursday morning, Daily Show host Trevor Noah proceeded to compare President Trump to a killer asteroid hurtling toward Earth, the AIDS epidemic in Africa, and fictional monster Godzilla.
Early in the interview, Meyers fretted: “…it’s scary, obviously a lot of people are scared by Trump, but you do – you see some humor in it, as well.” Noah replied: “Like, a person is less frightening when you are laughing….On the one hand, I am terrified at the notion that he’s the president of the most powerful nation in the world. On the other hand, I know that I’m going to wake up and he’s going to make me laugh.”
The left-wing comedian then provided this graphic analogy: “I like to think of it like Donald Trump is basically – he’s an asteroid headed towards the Earth. And it’s an asteroid, but it’s shaped like a penis.” As the audience laughed and applauded, Meyers gushed: “That’s a very good way of putting it, yeah.”
Minutes later, Noah observed: “I do feel when traveling home to South Africa and to many countries, people almost enjoy that America’s going through Donald Trump.” He declared: “Like your president is basically like your dad, the dad of your country…. But then your new dad is Donald Trump and then Africans are, ‘Yeah, yeah, I mean there’s AIDS, but you guys got Donald Trump.’” “It balances out,” he added.
Wrapping up his Trump bashing, Noah proclaimed:
What’s fun is finding how people relate to Donald Trump, you know what I mean? Everyone has a different connection to him, everyone has a different idea of him. So you get to a country, and you’re like, “What’s your view on Donald Trump?” And then they tell you and you’re like, “Oh, this is a new way to see the same person.” You know what I mean? It’s like, “How do you see Godzilla, from the front or the back?”
