Trevor Noah on R. Kelly Charges: "Like if Wile E. Coyote Finally Caught the Road Runner"
Referencing Kelly, Noah said, "It seems strange that they got him after all these years, you know? It's like if Wile E. Coyote finally caught the Road Runner, who is also a criminal, by the way. That bird has been smuggling drugs across the border for years, and Trump's border wall isn't going to stop him either, he'll just paint a wall and 'beep beep' right through it."
Noah went on to say that he's "genuinely shocked" that Kelly doesn't have $100,000 for bail. "How is that possible? Now I think of his music completely differently; I thought 'I Believe I can Fly' was a song about believing in yourself. Turns out this motherf---er couldn't afford a plane ticket."
Noting that Kelly "doesn't have money" and is facing multiple charges, Noah said his best bet right now is to "pray." The host then recognized that God has "hands full" right now — clips were promptly shown describing world and government conflicts.
