You don’t load up a guy like this to replace Jon Stewart if you’re expecting four more years of a Democrat.
On Monday, Comedy Central announced that South African comedian Trevor Noah would be replacing Jon Stewart as host of The Daily Show. To get a feel for Noah’s brand of humor, one could simply watch his debut on the fake news show in December of 2014, when he jokingly declared that present-day America had worse race relations than Apartheid South Africa.
Watch the clip, over at Newsbusters. The clip shows a comic whose routine would be pure ratings death during a new Democratic administration. But it’ll knock the liberals dead during a new Republican one.
PS: What? Well, of course the guy is a schmuck. Wait, you were expecting anything else? I can’t even get mad over it, sorry. I do, however, suspect that Comedy Central will wonder why they’re not generating as much buzz on that show as they used to do…
