On The Daily Show With Trevor Noah, Trevor Noah took some digs at Donald Trump‘s son, Donald Trump Jr., after he admitted that he, Jared Kushner, and Paul Manafort met with a Kremlin-linked Russian lawyer named Natalia Veselnitskaya to get dirt on Hillary Clinton and the Democrats. Noah said, “This is honestly stupid. It is incompetent and dumb.”
Trump Jr.’s defense essentially was that he had gone to Veselnitskaya for information, but there wasn’t any to be had. Noah was not a fan of this logic, saying, “Donald Jr.’s defense is he tried to collude but instead he got Russian catfished?”
Trust me, I had no idea
And Noah was definitely not buying Donald Jr.’s claim that he didn’t know who this meeting would be with, saying, “So, some random person shows up at Trump Tower, the front desk called Donald Jr. [and he says], ‘Hello? Someone’s here to see me? Oh, boy! Send them right up! No, I don’t want to know their name! I love surprises! Jared, Paul, you’ve got to see this!'”
Dumb and Dumber
With so many conflicting statements, it’s hard to say what happened at this point, but Noah felt strongly there was incompetence in the administration. “I don’t care if you believe that Russia colluded or not with the Trumps. You have to admit that the Trump team’s excuses make them sound dumber and dumber at every turn,” he said.
The Daily Show airs weeknights at 11 p.m. on Comedy Central.
