Trevor Noah: So Many Screw Ups, So Little Time To Cover Them All

Trevor Noah didn’t quite know where to begin Thursday night to cover all the gaffes, corruption and intrigue around the world on “The Daily Show.”

He took a stab at the latest illegal payment corruption allegation against Brazil’s president and revelations of the king of the Netherlands’ decades-long part-time as an airline pilot. But the best, as always, was Donald Trump, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s “TaskRabbit,” Noah joked, in reference to the handyman website.

The top story should have been Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s bodyguards allegedly beating up Americans protesting Turkey’s policy in Washington, D.C., Noah said. “Sweet Jesus. Do you understand how insane this is?” he said. So far, though, no comment from Trump, who has business interests in Turkey.

But how could anyone ignore the special prosecutor named to investigate alleged Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, and a possible connection to the Trump campaign?

“Oh damn, people,” the host said. “A special counsel is going to be investigating Trump. He’s going to serve two terms probably … two terms in prison.”

Check it out in the video above.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story misquoted Noah as saying “toss rabbit.”
