    We did the same with Obama. We didn’t hate him because he was half black. We hated him for his actions and he was an asshole!

    What a great distraction these comedians are for you Americans. What about the migrant kids who could be sent to Guantanamo Bay? Innocent children. What about Venezuela and what your Evil Government is doing there. What about Syria? What about Yemen? Do Americans know what's happening in Iraq? Do you guys know what's going on in Lybia? Huh?
    America has the biggest economy in the world, yet if you walk down city streets, it won't feel like it. Where's your $20 Trillion from last year? How can you have an economy worth $20 Trillion, yet the public owe the federal reserve $22 Trillion? THE PUBLIC. THAT'S FUCKEN YOU GUYS. THE PEOPLE.
    The Rich are Eating the Poor
    Outsiders love the American people, but you guys need to get some new blood in your government that can't be controlled by big cooperation.
    A nation of Christians doing the Devils work.
    All The Best, and May the people of America be Blessed by all the Gods.

    Trevor Noah is so funny...Glad I found him here on you tube as I do not watch TV...I will be watching all his videos...Love his accent as well and he is really nice to look at..just saying 😉


    GMA wants Jesse back for a follow up interview! Well that and they need someone to mop the floors and scrub toilets!!!!!!!!!!!!!!😎


    Smollett is guilty of the worst career choice ever! Black folks should want justice from Smollett more than anyone! He is making a mockery of their movements and credibility! He should except his judgment and apologize for his actions! Then maybe people will forgive him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!😎

    Why do people think this Trevor Noah guy if funny? I don't see it. By the way I'm not defending Smollett, I just find him extremely unfunny.
    Ps. Just imagine if a straight white guy paid two black guys to beat him up and then filed a fake police report, mr. Noah would be ranting and raving.

  • Luke Edison

    Of course Trevor Noah sells this as a disgruntled worker seeking a raise. He conveniently slides right past key facts like Smollett specifically framing white people in his testimony, pointedly attacking an opposing political party in a fraudulent smear attempt, and trying to demonize heterosexuals. But yeah, other than those clear motives, this had nothing to do with politics or ideology.

    It was never about a raise. Look at who was cast as the perpetrator. It was not whites. It was not native-born African-Americans. Instead, wardrobe gave them MAGA hats. This was an engineered hate crime, one designed to heap the burden of hate onto Trump supporters.
    There was another one of these recently, a mob attacked some catholic school boys over the MAGA hat. Then, the press flamed the boys... until it became clear they were the ones attacked.

    Let's be honest. If he wasn't caught pulling this nonsense all of the shows and celebrities now hanging up on him would have had t shirts and online posts of support.
    And just like the Salem witch trials they have to dunk him until he confesses to heresy so you stop looking for witches, because they're witches too. He used the standard formula for this type of fakery that everyone else was using and now people are asking questions and that's no good for fake crimes.

    From just another tighty-righty northern-whitey, nice swing, Trevor! This episode of your five-minute show has inspired me to explore the tendency for late-nite TV to oppose certain leftist viewpoints and "principles". By the way all, it's "zeh-brah" like "Deh-brah"--not "zee-brah".

    What a horribly selfish and socially destructive thing to do. This makes things immensely more difficult for every actual victim of hate crimes. People who can’t be bothered to consider how their actions will affect others... I wish they were in the minority compared to those who are considerate and thoughtful. Maybe they are. Maybe assholes just seem to be more numerous.
