'The Daily Show' torches former Trump administration officials for saving incriminating info to sell books
Trevor Noah and Michael Kosta, a correspondent for “The Daily Show," recently took aim at former White House officials who worked for the Trump administration; namely, those who saved incriminating details about the former president for the purpose of writing tell-all books.
On Monday, May 9, Kosta addressed the onslaught of tell-all books as he criticized the authors during his recent segment of "The Daily Show," according to HuffPost. “I thought the public needs to know about this right now, which is why I’m releasing this book right now, three years after it happened,” Kosta said.
“Mic check, mic check, I had to be the adult in the room. I had to be the adult in the room,” the comedian added.
The latest "Daily Show" segment comes amid deep criticism of former U.S. Secretary of Defense Mark Esper who is facing scrutiny for his failure to speak publicly about former President Donald Trump's disturbing suggestions about shooting at George Floyd protesters during the summer of 2020. To make matters worse, Trump is also said to have suggested "launching missile strikes on Mexico drug labs."
Not letting up, Kosta continued his relentless scrutiny of the former Trump officials in a brief parody clip. When asked if he'd support a Trump presidential campaign in 2024, Kosta offered a blatantly sacrastic response.
The parody clip has garnered lots of attention on social media with users cosigning with Kosta.

Another user also chimed in saying, "Enragingly, painfully on target.."
Can these books be used as evidence against them? @gop @USAttorneys @DNC @POTUS @VP @powerlineUS @TGC @ldsofficial @SouthernBaptist— Edith Dees (@Edith Dees) 1652136196
