Trevor Noah Calls Out Kirsten Gillibrand for Past ‘Racist’ Policies

Comedy Central

This past weekend, during Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s first big Sunday show interview since she announced she is running for president in 2020, CNN’s Jake Tapper asked her a fairly straightforward question: “If Trump’s immigration positions are racist, were they racist when you held some of those positions as well?”

After a pause, she told Tapper, “They certainly weren’t empathetic, and they weren’t kind, and I did not think about suffering in other people’s lives.” Sen. Gillibrand explained that she only discovered how “wrong” she was about the issue after visiting Brooklyn and learning from Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez.

“Damn, Jake Tapper got her on that one,” Trevor Noah said Tuesday night during a Daily Show segment about the various apologies that have launched the early Democratic presidential campaigns this month. “It’s hard for her to say Trump’s policies are racist, but her identical policies were just unkind.”

‘Daily Show’s’ Trevor Noah Offers Definitive Proof That Steve King Is a ‘Racist’

Comedy Central

This Tuesday, as even Republicans in Congress were denouncing their colleague Steve King’s comments about white supremacy, an NBC News memo leaked instructing reporters to “avoid characterizing [King’s] remarks as racist.” The media organization eventually had to backtrack and admit, “It is fair to characterize King’s comments as ‘racist,’ and point out that he has a history of racist comments.”

“This is a big deal,” The Daily Show host Trevor Noah said Tuesday night. “The Republican Party has punished one of its own for making racist comments.” And while King’s declaration that there’s nothing “offensive” about being a white supremacist “feels like a pretty racist thing to say,” Noah noted that the congressman is fighting back, claiming that his words were somehow taken out of context.

“I want to make one thing abundantly clear,” King said on the floor of the House this week. “I reject those labels and the evil ideology that they define.”

‘Daily Show’s’ Trevor Noah Takes ‘Racist’ Steve King to Task

The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah spent less than a minute taking on Rep. Steve King (R-IA) Thursday night. But that was more time than each of the big three network late-night hosts spent on America’s foremost white nationalist member of Congress.

After lightly mocking Beto O’Rourke for live-streaming his dental appointment on Instagram, Noah moved on to someone who “did something even less cool than visit a dentist.”

In the host’s words, King “has often faced accusations of racism,” adding, “Now, that’s mostly because of all the racist stuff he says. But today he defended himself by asking, ‘What’s wrong with racism anyway?’”

‘Daily Show’s’ Trevor Noah Roasts Stephen Miller’s Hair ‘Migration’

This past weekend, White House senior adviser Stephen Miller made a lot of outrageous arguments about border security and a possible government shutdown on Face the Nation. But all anyone seemed to want to talk about was whatever was happening on top of his head.

“Did you guys catch that?” The Daily Show host Trevor Noah asked his audience Monday night. “Not the stuff about the southern border, I’m talking about the new border, up here. What’s going on over there? A bit of a migration happening…”

“All weekend, people were wondering what the hell happened with Stephen Miller’s hair,” Noah continued, putting up side-by-side photos that demonstrated how his hairline had evolved. “And I get why. It’s like someone said, ‘Who here hates immigrants?’ and his hair was like, ‘This guy!’”

Yuval Noah Harari’s Quick Primer on How to See Into the Future

Getty

One of my favorite one-liners is the joke by economist Paul Samuelson that the stock market has predicted nine of the last five recessions. It highlights the idea that sometimes we’re bad prognosticators because we see “trends” that were really just data points.

So how do you tell the signal from the noise? How do you know when something new is also something big? How much do our primate brains and changing weather patterns tell us about the future of immigration or war or online dating apps?

“I don’t think of history as much about studying the past as about studying change,” says Yuval Noah Harari, a historian at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and author of the New York Times bestseller Sapiens. “And one of the main tools for studying change is looking at past changes in human society and political systems.”
