Trevor Noah compares Donald Trump to King Kong

Posted on

Comedy Central

Donald Trump’s graphic remarks about women have led to many Republican leaders are abandoning him — even ones who had previously endorsed his presidential campaign. Trump has responded by lashing back at the likes of John McCain and House Speaker Paul Ryan (who still endorses Trump for president), and declaring that “the shackles have been taken off me.” On Wednesday night’s The Daily Show, host Trevor Noah found the perfect pop culture comparison for this situation.

“Yes people, apparently what we’ve seen up until now was shackled Donald Trump,” Noah said. “But not anymore. Now, Trump is like King Kong — in that they both broke free of their shackles and like grabbing white women without asking.”

In Noah’s view, Trump is more like the independent third-party candidate Americans have been seeking than a typical Republican nominee. He’s independent of decency, etiquette, political expectations, and alliances.

“There’s nobody like him. He’s completely unique,” Noah said. “He’s like a snowflake, but a snowflake that got peed on before it hit your tongue.”
