“The Republicans are now trying to baby-proof the whole election from top to bottom.” ~ Trevor Noah
Daily Show host Trevor Noah lashed out at the Republican presidential hopefuls’ tough talk during Tuesday’s episode, playing a series of clips of the GOP candidates talking tough. He then show a series of clips of the very same candidates whining and complaining about CNBC’s debate moderators.
Trevor Noah wants to know what happened to the GOP presidential candidates’ tough talk.
Asking “what happened at that CNBC debate that transformed this crew from ‘The Expendables‘ to the cast of ‘Scooby-Doo?'” Noah went on to explain that “The Republicans are now trying to baby-proof the whole election from top to bottom,” through their ridiculous list of demands for TV executives to heed during future debates.
“How ridiculous are these demands going to get?” Noah continued, airing news footage showing how the GOP hopefuls didn’t want their empty podiums to be shown while they are in the bathroom.
“Speaking of the bathrooms, are you shitting me?” Noah asked, adding: “The candidates are seriously worried the viewers will know how much time they spend peeing? That request has to be for Jeb Bush — everyone knows he’s pee-shy. It’s not for Trump — he doesn’t even use the bathroom. He just whips it out and writes his name right there on the stage.”
Noah concluded, advising the Republicans to “toughen up,” reminding the presidential hopefuls that the job of president requires handling a lot of tough questions:
“How do you think, in less than eight years, Barack Obama went from handsome junior Senator to black Crypt Keeper?” Noah asked.
