The Daily Show host Trevor Noah is offended by what US President Donald Trump said about non-white countries.
US president Donald Trump’s reported remark branding Haiti, El Salvador and unspecified African nations as “s***hole countries” has been branded racist by a UN human rights official.
“If confirmed these are shocking and shameful comments from the President of the United States,” spokesperson Rupert Coleville said.
“There is no other word you can use but ‘racist’.”
“Guys,” “Daily Show” host Trevor Noah said. “I don’t know how to break this to you, but I think the president might be racist. Hear me out, I know I sound crazy.”
Noah, who is from South Africa, used his own nationality as a springboard. “Personally, as someone from South Sh*thole, I’m offended, Mr. President,” the host said. “Because not only does he think brown countries are sh*tholes, he thinks, what, we’re never going to know what he said? I mean, don’t get me wrong, it might take a few weeks, but once the news donkey reaches our village, we’ll be so mad.”
