Bill Maher Mocks, Trevor Noah Fact-Checks Trump's RNC Address

Bill Maher and Trevor Noah each got off to a late start on Thursday following Donald Trump’s lengthy speech at the Republican National Convention. Both Real Time and The Daily Show were pushed back over 30 minutes to allow each host to respond to an address that Maher described as both “bleak” and “remarkable.”

“[It] was pretty remarkable how bleak this speech was,” Maher explained. “It was really just about death. Crime is going to kill you, immigrants are going to kill you, terrorists are going to kill you. He has a new hat that says ‘Make America Goth Again.’ It was so depressing Melania started plagiarizing a suicide note. And of course the people in the hall loved it, you know, ‘finally a candidate who can bring this country apart.'”

 

Noah, on the other hand, urged every viewer to “live each day like it’s their last” following a speech he described as”a thin shell of candy covering a chocolate center of hate.” The Comedy Central personality then lasered in on the false figures provided by Trump on crime, taxes and illegal immigration. (Noah later promised that he’d present an even more thorough fact-checking on Friday’s episode.)

“Just to make you feel better, yes, there is a recent spike in homicides in major cities, but overall, America is in the middle of an historic crime drop,” he explained. “America is nowhere near the most taxed nation in the world and illegal immigration has dropped to the lowest total since 2003. So if you’ve been watching the show while hiding under your bed, I want you to know that you can come out.”

  1. Excellence, Trump is DUMB. I just cannot understand his supports not recognizing this fact. God Bless Us and may he lose his bid for the Presidency. No fan of Hillary either. His dumbness will show through in the debates. #WakeUpAmerica #LoveNotHate

    Just bite the bullet, America. Congress will block anything Hilary does anyway, so you’re safe. Vote Clinton now and get yourself a serious candidate in 4 years. And not Kanye, please, that would defeat the purpose spectaculalrly…

    Greatest response ever

  5. Clark wilson says:

    A typical reply from blabber mouthed TV commentators who do not have a clue about real life, real people and REAL solutions to REAL problems. O’reilly nailed it with non fathered children of this country. The bible has the solutions if people would read and implement its divine wisdom

      Because cave dwelling goat herders from 2000 years ago have the answers to todays culture. The family thing worked so well for OReally didn’t it. And taxpayers who choose not to believe in your angry fairy god daddy in the sky still deserve protection and freedom from your delusions.
