Welcome to the new Daily Show. Just as left wing as the old Daily Show. The program’s new host Trevor Noah made his debut last night.
John Nolte of Breitbart watched so we wouldn’t have to:
Awkward Trevor Noah Bombs in Debut: Pope D*ck Jokes, Trashes Conservatives as ‘Radicals’
An awkward, ever-shifting-in-his-chair comedian took the reins of “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” Monday night, and had no idea what to do with them or even where to put his hands. At times it was painful to watch Trevor Noah. For all of Stewart’s fascist, bullying tendencies, he did possess some talent. Noah is undoubtedly talented enough to land this gig, but he is unquestionably in over his head.
Noah might grow into the gig. He might not. It won’t matter. He is politically correct and a left-wing extremist, so the media will undoubtedly prop him up regardless. They’ve certainly had practice. Although fewer than 1% of the population ever watched Stewart, the media still managed to turn him into a Potemkin Phenom.
When you’re a leftist, talent and popularity are not required.
Here’s a clip of the show from NewsBusters in which Noah compares Pope Francis to Bernie Sanders, much to the delight of his left wing audience:
It will be interesting to see how much of a ratings nosedive the show takes in the coming months.
