Trevor Noah Wonders If America Is More 'Disorganized' or 'Hateful' as Donald Trump Takes Election Lead

Trevor Noah found himself in an odd position on Tuesday, having to tell jokes during a live, hour-long edition of The Daily Show that aired as the presidential election headed in a direction that few pundits and pollsters had predicted.

At the start of Noah’s Election Night broadcast, Donald Trump was leading Hillary Clinton in electoral votes, and it looked like the former Apprentice host would finish the night victoriously. Flabbergasted by what seemed like an inevitable outcome, even in the 11 pm hour, Noah took a moment to ponder what the United States of America had done.

“I’m not going to lie… I don’t know if you came to the right place for jokes tonight, because this is the first time throughout this entire race where I’m officially sh—ting my pants,” he said. “I genuinely do not understand how America can be this disorganized or this hateful… [W]hen most democracies in the world pick a leader, they go by, you know, ‘Who did more people vote for?’ America just makes it interesting by being like, ‘Oh, no, let’s do this Electoral College thing.'”

Later, the Daily Show host declared that he was already sick of all the “winning” Trump spoke of throughout his campaign. He also showed how a potential Clinton defeat was already negatively effecting the peso, which would make it that much harder for Mexico to pay for Trump’s wall.

What did you think of Noah’s “Democalypse 2016 Live” monologue? Do you agree with his sentiment?

    Blame American politics, not the people. 8 years of getting nothing done because of bipartisan bull crap has led to a frustrated populace. Even though he is detestable Trump represented a change (good or bad) from what our government had become. I hope America has the resolve to weather the next four years.

    Now if you’ll excuse me I’m gonna go rematch the West Wing. Bartlett for America…

    People are really, really, REALLY tired of being told that they are racist or sexist or whatever because they have a different solution to a problem. Hopefully one day the media and liberals will get that.

    • Crys says:

      Sadly, tonight Amerikkka just proved that the majority is divisive and racist and sexist. Agreeing with a man who continues to use fear and hatred to appeal to the “forgotten” population. I should’ve known when we couldn’t even enjoy two Texas performers at a CMA event. Just because you don’t WANT to be called racist doesn’t t mean you aren’t.

      • Radha says:

        THANK YOU. They’ll all learn though. When he has America going down in flames, they’ll learn. And I’ll laugh.

      • syvyn11 says:

        It’s always the left that shows their true racism.

      • incognito says:

        Let me preface this by saying I’m not American. Do I find the US election results horrifying? Absolutely. I have a few other more strongly worded descriptors in mind, but that’s not what I’m here to share. Here’s my take away: the true cost of the democratic process is that the popular selection might not be the moral position. The right to choose means the right to choose badly… and I wouldn’t have it any other way. As Churchill once said “Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.”

      People just voted for a man who spent years claiming Obama wasn’t born in the U.S. who got an endorsement from a freaking member of the KKK, who talked about wanting to ban all Muslims, who called Mexicans druggies and rapists, who rated women’s attractiveness on a scale of one to ten and who was known for dumping women the moment they stopped being “attractive enough” to him, and who bragged about grabbing women without their consent.
      .
      Pray tell, how the hell are we NOT supposed to see that as support of racism and sexism? That is precisely what that is. If people don’t like being called on that, well, tough, the truth hurts.

    • Mr. Smith says:

      Thank you, Katrina. Well said.

      • who says:

        you poor thing

        one of the things that amazes about ‘political correctness’ is that the ones who beep about it the most are usually the ones who are willing to pull a gun on someone were the feelings to get hurt.

        you know like Katrina

    • who says:

      good luck with that sentiment.

      seeing how ‘minority-majority’ is coming.

    All this Hollywood butthurt is going to be AWESOME! Maybe we don’t need Hollywood to tell us who to vote for anymore.

  4. Mary says:

    This horrible Hollywood liberal is a Big reason Trump won. They call us deplorable and racist because we love our.Country and do not want it destroyed. Because of HORRIBLE liberal policies we are TRILLIONS in debt, have a terrible health care system, terrorism out of control and our economy stinks. Get a clue Trevor!

    • Cas says:

      You realize the debt is from Bush right? Obama actually lowered our debt plus did a ton for women’s rights which I am sure you don’t care about. Yes the health system isn’t perfect and needs help but not everything can be blamed on Obama.

  5. Bill says:

    Trevor can. BLame himself, along with Seth Myers, Stephen Colbert and all those disgusting “entertainers” that have been telling Americans how to vote for weeks. We let HATE win? Give me a break, if Hilary was so qualified and such a great person she would have won. One candidate sure was disgusting and it wasn’t Trump like this guy wants us to bet

    • who says:

      ‘One candidate sure was disgusting and it wasn’t Trump like this guy wants us to bet’

      pardon?

      Trump isn’t what?

  6. Nichole says:

    Have never watched this show, but is this guy supposed to be a political commentator?? If so he should have done his research first before stating that no where else in the world would the person who one the most votes not win. In Australia we have mandatory voting for all people over 18yrs of age and a preferential election system, so if the person you voted for wasn’t in the top two for your seat, they pass the votes on to someone else till the person with the most votes wins the seat, then the party with the most seats forms government. There have been many elections here just in the last two decades where the party that received the most first votes has not won the election. In today’s political environment this is not the best system, but at least our Prime Minister can be replaced by the party in power without needing to go to an election if they are doing a bad job!

    I don’t get it as soon as there person is losing they lose it. How can this be. It was all fun and games as long as they were going to win. Then when that looked like it wasn’t going to happen they became what sore losers. Why isn’t this funny now and jokes can be made about Hillary can’t we.

  8. jzEllis says:

    That had to be one of the lamest comedy bits I’ve ever seen. I will give them
    Props for trying to just roll with it via comedy through honesty…

    That said, I do find it hilarious that Hollywood was so deep in their sick-letfist delusion that the mere possibility of Trump becoming president never occured to them; it’s actully quite funny.
