Trevor Noah and The Daily Show found a way to honor all the officials fired from President Donald Trump’s administration. The host and his show presented a special kind of in memoriam tribute to end the year as a nod to all those gone from the Trump administration. It is an R.I.P. (retire in peace).
Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, Trump’s former National Security Advisor of 25 days, said, “If I did a tenth of what [Hillary Clinton] did, I would be in jail today.” Where is he now? He started off December by pleading guilty to lying to the F.B.I. regarding conversations between him and Russia’s ambassador.
Steve Bannon (former White House Chief Strategist) and Reince Priebus (former White House Chief of Staff) served 211 and 190 days, respectively, before getting the boot. And who could forget folks like Sean Spicer and his 10-day White House Press Secretary replacement Anthony Scaramucci?
Noah takes on the very tall task of replacing longtime host Jon Stewart on Comedy Central’s Emmy- and Peabody Award-winning talk/news satire program. Noah joined “The Daily Show” in 2014 as a contributor, two years after making his U.S. television debut on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.” The native of South Africa — born to a black South African mother and a white European father — has been lauded for his unique, insightful take on current events and ability to sell out international comedy shows. It’s also helpful that he is, in the words of his Comedy Central boss, “wickedly funny.”
