Trevor Noah Mocks Trump and Begs for Feud After LeBron James ‘Beef’
The popular comedian and late-night TV show host challenges our mercurial Commander-In-Chief, ‘Why Do You Ignore Me?’
The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah is wondering how he can land on Donald Trump’s Hit-List of Black folks that he takes aim at on social media.
As noted by slate.com, last week, Trump insulted the intelligence of NBA star LeBron James and CNN’s Don Lemon, calling the newly minted Los Angeles Laker “the dumbest man on television” following his interview with Lemon.
“Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do,” Trump wrote.
“You know Trump calling someone the dumbest man on television is like R. Kelly singing about you locking girls up,” Noah noted Monday night, adding that Trump’s pettiness marks another installment of him “feuding with a famous black person who dared to criticize him.”
He added, “And now it’s got all this attention, which makes me wonder: What do I have to do? Why do you ignore me, Donald? Every night I’m out here. We even wrote a book.”
The late-night host recently published “The Daily Show Presents: The Donald J. Trump Presidential Twitter Library Book,” which, according to Billboard, showcases and analyzes the “finest works” from the Trump’s election.
Since he was elected the 45th President of the United States, Trump has popped off on former President Barack Obama, Frederica Wilson, Senator Maxine Waters, Oprah Winfrey, Stephen Curry, and he recently resumed rabid Twitter rants about NFL players protesting police violence.
Noah said what he found most “surprising” in the Trump/James beef is the fact that First Lady Melania Trump defended the baller for “working to do good things on behalf of our next generation” with his recently announced I Promise School for at-risk children in his hometown of Akron, Ohio.
“Guys. Guys. I’m starting to think that maybe Melanie is not happy in her marriage… this is insane. Now Melania is saying she wants to go visit LeBron’s school? Don’t forget. This is now the fourth time that the First Lady has gone publicly against her husband,” Noah said.
“She spoke out against kids in cages. She refused to stop watching CNN on Air Force One and remember she has been spotted hanging out with vegetables so English may not be her first language, but she is clearly fluent in throwing shade.”
Noah urged James to “return the favor” to Mrs. Trump by helping her figure out how to “get out of an unhappy relationship.”
