Watch: The Daily Show Digs Up Disgusting 'Nuggets' From Trump Archive Trashing Poor People

Trevor Noah has hit something of a stride on "The Daily Show" lately in going after Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump. Thursday night, he dug up some fairly disgusting quotes from the Trump archive in which Trump expresses his utter contempt for anyone who is not rich.


The candidate, who has spent about "58 percent" of his campaign bragging about how rich he is, has won the support of some poor and working-class folks, something that Trump, of course, also brags about. These voters apparently like the fact that Trump says exactly what's on his mind; he "tells it like it is." We guess so. In old interviews with the New York Times, Trump has called poor people "morons" and expressed the view that no one should be president if the salary for that office is more than they have ever earned before.

Yep, that's called plutocracy.

Watch Trevor Noah lay the candidate's views bare:
