Trevor Noah Begrudgingly Admits Donald Trump Is Right About 9/11

Comedy Central

"If he’s not wrong about this, then what other things is Trump not wrong about?"

Trevor Noah had difficulty saying Donald Trump was right about something on Monday's The Daily Show.

Noah was discussing the back-and-forth that has been occurring between Jeb Bush and Trump over whether or not George W. Bush kept the country safe during his term as president. Noah showed tweets and video clips of Trump and Jeb arguing about 9/11.

"The World Trade Center came down, so when he said 'We were safe [with my brother],' that's not safe," said Trump in a video clip.

"I’m sorry to say this, but, strictly within the factual confines of that sentence, Donald Trump is ... " Noah stopped and comically struggled with saying the word "right." Finally he said, “He’s not wrong.”

Noah said this is "worrying" because, "if he’s not wrong about this, then what other things is Trump not wrong about?" He added, "Maybe he is best at military. Maybe multiple bankruptcies doesn’t mean he’s a bad businessman. The possibilities are endless."

Before pointing out that Trump was right and actually "said a fact that happened," Noah mocked Jeb Bush.

He said Jeb Bush's logic "doesn’t really make sense."

" 'We were attacked,' and ‘my brother kept us safe’? Do you know how that sounds?" asked Noah. "It’s not really correct. It’s like saying, ‘I’m blackout drunk — and totally cool to drive.’ ‘I lost your children, and this field trip was a success.’ It’s one or the other. It can’t be both."
