Donald Trump – “Perfect candidate, but wrong continent.” Trevor Noah puts his stamp on the Daily Show.
As Trevor Noah illustrates in the video, if you can’t laugh at Donald Trump, you probably are incapable of laughing. As a comedian or writer, you have to love a character like Trump.
Now don’t get me wrong.
I admit that Donald Trump comes across:
- Shoots straight (even if half-baked & idiotic).
- Entertains (even if sometimes as a half-wit).
- Does not hold back (even if what he says makes him a despicable man.)
- Tells us in front of the camera what his GOP opponents will only say in private.
Yep, as an author, I understand why Trevor Noah loves Donald Trump. For one thing, Trump has thus far prevented the GOP presidential candidates from boring the nation to death.
Donald Trump also is so full of crap that it’s running out his ears, but he’s still ten steps ahead of the other GOP candidates. This article/post is not an endorsement for Trump, but an indictment of the other GOP candidates.
Of course, Donald Trump has a right to run.
Frankly, as crazy as Trump might be, it pisses me off to see candidates such as Ricky Perry and Lindsey Graham say Trump’s unfit to be president or even stand on the same stage as the other candidates. Coming from you two clowns? Guess what, Trump’s got a better chance of getting elected president than either of you bozos. Of course, I could say the same for Sarah Palin or OJ. You two have as much chance of becoming president as you are likely to jump over the moon. So, get over yourselves already. You’re part of a weak field that elevated Donald Trump to the top.
Everybody has a right to run, but since you (Graham and Perry) brought up the subject, why are the two of you running? You don’t bring any new ideas. You could fit your true believers in a small Waffle House. So, stop asking why others are in the race. The party will soon be asking what I just did, and the two of you will drop out and begin your groveling for the vice president spot.
The GOP never learns…
Hello GOP establishment, allow me to let you in on a secret. The reason why Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachman, or Donald Trump always steal your spotlight is that you fight the wrong fight. Even worse, the GOP establishment confuses cheap political attacks with having an agenda. If you want to keep the “fruitcakes” from “hijacking” the process, then start telling us what you’re going to do to bring health care costs down. While you’re at it, how about a real job plan (please something besides another round of tax cuts for the wealthy). Tell us how you’re going to prevent those “too big to fail” from wrecking our economy again. Stop the attacks and start providing answers to the big problems facing our nation. Then, the Trumps of the world won’t get noticed. As it is, they’re the only show in town. The rest of the candidates offer no ideas and bore us to death!
Remember when you were the good guys?
Remember when the GOP were the good guys? Be the party of Abraham Lincoln and Dwight Eisenhower, not Scrooge. We need our politicians to be Statesmen (and women), not act like championship wrestlers.
If the GOP were the party of statesmen, Trump would unlikely have any traction. As it is, Trump’s an actual championship wrestler among a group of wannabes. I hope he wins the nomination. Not only would it assure a lively general election, but would also teach the GOP a good lesson for failing to develop any governing ideas since IKE. Karma’s a bitch! Trump provides entertainment for an otherwise boring GOP Primary.
Noah also does an excellent job of showing how Trump sounds much like several African leaders. Forget the facts, from a comic standpoint, Trump is hilarious.
I particularly enjoyed where Noah compares Trump’s fibs to Gambian’s President Jammeh’s declaration that he can cure aids with bananas. He calls Trump the “perfect African presidential candidate.”
“I have got a very good brain” – Idi Amin in a Trump-like boast.
Trevor Noah looks like he’s going to be a great replacement for John Stewart.
Donald Trump – Perfect Candidate, Wrong Continent by Jerry Beller
Presidential hopeful Donald Trump may not seem like commander-in-chief material to Americans, but in certain African countries, he fits the bill.
