FBI 'Seacrested' the Reveal of Clinton Email Findings, Says Trevor Noah

Trevor Noah was not above mocking the FBI on Tuesday, lampooning bureau director James Comey for his delivery of the Hillary Clinton email findings.

The Daily Show host roasted the the FBI’s press conference, insinuating that Comey “Seacrested” the entire announcement — a 15-minute statement that culminated in his conclusion that the Democratic presidential nominee should not be indicted despite what Noah referred to as “a laundry list of shady sh—t.”

“As if we all weren’t already anxious enough about it, Comey had to build the suspense up,” he said. “This is not [AmericanIdol. Just tell us what Hillary and the State Dept. did.”

Noah also took a moment to put into perspective the current election cycle, which finds a candidate who barely avoided “giving fancy speeches from Cell Block D” emerging as the rational one.

“The good news is that one of your presidential candidates… will not be going to jail at this time. Not being indicted should never, ever be your good news.”

    I think I speak for quite a few people by stating we don’t need “Seacresting” becoming a word.

    Two big surprises here.

    1. That a TV show actually didn’t blindly support Clinton no matter what.

    2. That it was published on this website!

      This just goes to show that a topical comedy show will go wherever the good material is. It simply turns out that the majority of the ripest fodder for mockery comes from the other side of the aisle in this era. I’m sure there have been periods in history when it was the other way around.

    What is “Seacresting?”

  5. Sterling Archer says:

    How apropos, since Trevor Noah is the South African “Ryan Seacrest” of comedy.

    That woman’s a fraud of the highest order.
    If Trump didn’t want to overturn Obergfell vs Hodges, I’d vote for him just to keep her out of the White House.

      Show us the indictments. Show us the convictions. Show us the lawsuits. You got nothing except a bad case of Clinton Derangement Syndrome, brought on by listening to FOX, Limbaugh, Hannity and Savage for the past 30 years with a small infection from Coulter on top.

    My big issue with Comey’s announcement is that he knew for quite a while that they had nothing to charge her for. But Republican Comey decided to spend all that time basically lecturing her behavior for partisan gain.

  8. Preacher Book says:

    I’m disappointed in you Trevor. What Comey actually said, patronizing lecturing aside, was no crime could be found. Not ‘not guilty’ because no trial. Not corrupt politician squeaking by, no crime. No, a GOP operative appointed by Bush couldn’t deliver the goods and said so in a way that implied wrong-doing. Sorta like asking if you have stopped beating your wife lately.
