Trevor Noah's Daily Show Imagines Trump Victory in 2020-Set Episode

The Daily Show on Monday envisioned the result of a Donald Trump presidency, jumping ahead to the year 2020 to show what might happen during the former Apprentice host’s first term as Commander-in-Chief.

The episode, which is set to take place a week before the next presidential election, finds Trevor Noah breaking into his former Comedy Central studio to detail all the ways our country went to hell in a handbasket after voters allowed “650,000 of Anthony Weiner’s d–k pics” to impact their decision on November 8, 2016.

Among the events that occur within Trump’s first term, according to The Daily Show:

* To show his gratitude for “one d–k getting another d–k elected,” President Trump turns the Washington Monument into a gold-plated Weiner Monument.

* Hillary Clinton is sentenced to 15 years in prison at a new compound referred to as “Super Guantanamo,” along with “former vice president” Mike Pence.

* To avoid Trump’s America, the Obamas, along with Joe Biden, have relocated to Mars.

* Trump TV comes to fruition. Dubbed “TNN,” the Trump News Network is the only remaining cable news outlet after the “Trump-aganda” forces use newly enacted libel laws to shut down legitimate news media.

* Last Week Tonight host John Oliver gets deported in the middle of a segment on egg safety standards.

* Due to The Donald’s love of social media, Chris Hardwick is forced to host @Midnight 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

    “I’m Hillary Clinton, and I approve this message”

    Some of that will be true when he wins.

    I’m sure it seemed like a good idea in the meeting room when they mapped it out, but I thought it got old fast, and i sat there last night saying, “You’re over-reaching, Trevor. Over-reaching!”. I’m glad they’ll be back to 2016 tonight.

      I agree. The concept is great, but the execution was ineffective and a bit cringe-worthy. I think what he’s saying is humorous and pieces of it may be scarily accurate, I just don’t think the style worked out.

    Legitimate news media died long ago.

    I miss Jon Stewart. :(

    Sounds about right.

  7. nlwindsor says:

    Hillary is a hell of a lot scarier than Donald Trump. #MAGA

      Agreed. If Shillary gets elected it’ll be nonstop war, corruption, scandal and concentration of power and money in the hands of fewer and fewer. Luckily wikileaks is revealing the truth, and some with integrity like Jill Stein are willing to speak up as well.

  8. They actually think that The Daily Show will make it until 2020…
