Trevor Noah Begrudgingly Admits Donald Trump Is Right About 9/11
"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."
.@JebBush, At the debate you said your brother kept us safe- I wanted to be nice & did not mention the WTC came down during his watch, 9/11.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 17, 2015
How pathetic for @realdonaldtrump to criticize the president for 9/11. We were attacked & my brother kept us safe.— Jeb Bush (@JebBush) October 16, 2015
No @JebBush, you’re pathetic for saying nothing happened during your brother’s term when the World Trade Center was attacked and came down.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 17, 2015
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."
