The irony of Donald Trump attempting to woo black voters as he spoke in a Wisconsin town that is 95 percent white was not lost on Trevor Noah.
“He made a pitch directly to black voters, not near black voters, but to black voters,” he pointed out on Wednesday’s episode of The Daily Show. “You know things are bad when a rich white man is asking black people for help. Normally, the only time a 70-year-old billionaire is asking black people for help, it’s usually their nurse… and it’s usually because they sh– themselves — which, technically, the Trump campaign has, so I guess it makes sense.”
Noah then showed a clip of the GOP presidential nominee addressing the relationship between police and the black community: “The narrative of cops as a racist force in our society has been pushed aggressively for years and now by our current administration and pushed by my opponent, Hillary Clinton, you know is a totally false one,” Trump says.
“Donald Trump is implying the only reason black communities feel oppressed isn’t because of their experiences. No, it’s because of the Democrats who have tricked them,” Noah said. “Like before that, black people didn’t know what’s happening to them? Like black people were surprised? Democrats came and they were like, ‘Wait, what? This is oppression? I thought the officer was massaging me with his night stick!'”
Noah wasn’t finished with the candidate quite yet, cutting to Trump saying, “The problem in our poorest communities is not that there are too many police — the problem is that there are not enough police.”
“Here’s the problem that I have with that statement,” Noah says. “You cannot pitch more police without fixing the police that are already there. The Philadelphia 76ers don’t need more basketball players — they need better basketball players.”
