Trevor Noah 'Offended' Over Tomi Lahren's Suspension from 'The Blaze'
The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah has a new segment, “Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That,” in which he quickly digs into several stories so that the show can keep up with the fast-moving news cycle, which also means the level of in-depth mockery puts it even lower on the political comedy show food chain: John Oliver -> Samantha Bee -> Seth Meyers -> The Daily Show -> Weekend Update.
He tackled four stories in last night’s six-minute segment: The United States’ decision to remove laptops and iPads from airlines flying direct from certain countries; Neil Gorsuch being a very white man; Ivanka Trump getting an office in The White House; and Tomi Lahren’s suspension from The Blaze. Lahren’s widest exposure to the the world, outside of Facebook, of course, was her appearance on The Daily Show a few months back, when Noah politely dismantled her arguments against Black Lives Matter.
Still, Noah is “offended by the hypocrisy” of The Blaze’s decision to suspend her for speaking her “truth” and revealing that she is pro-choice. He was so offended, in fact, that he “wanted to protest. Unfortunately, there’s no type of black-people protest that Tomi is comfortable with.”
Jump to the 3:15 mark in the video for Lahren.
