Daily Show's Trevor Noah Slams Rupert Murdoch's Racist Idiocy


Daily Show host Trevor Noah can't get enough Ben Carson Stupid. The neurosurgeon-cum-presidential candidate has spent the past 72 hours saying incredibly dumb things about guns, Hitler, counterterror tactics, and now... Popeyes.

But now his most prominent supporter - Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch - has awkwardly come to his defense only to make things much worse, tweeting out "Ben and Candy Carson are great. What about a real black president who can properly address the racial divide?" Needless to say, the Daily Show couldn't resist.

"Maybe the guy suffers from insomnia," Noah speculated. "and the only thing that treats it is vaguely racist tweeting." Noah, who got into some trouble last year for old tweets that were sexist and anti-Semitic in nature, seem to go a bit easy on the conservative kingpin.  

This is eye-opening, though. This whole time, conservatives have been accused of disliking Obama because he’s too black,” Noah said. “Now it turns out, the problem is that he isn’t black enough! Well, at least according to my ni*ga Rupert Murdoch.”
