On Thursday’s Daily Show, the host compared clips of Trump to those of various African leaders to highlight the similarities of selected quotes.
“For me, as an African, there’s just something familiar about Trump that makes me feel at home,” Noah said.
After airing footage of Trump criticizing Mexican immigrants, Noah played a clip of South African president Jacob Zuma saying that some of the immigrants in his country are criminals.
“That’s light xenophobia with just a dash of diplomacy — which is also the title of Paula Deen‘s new book,” Noah joked.
Noah also pointed out similarities between Trump’s comments and those of Gambian president Yahya Jammeh, the late Ugandan president Idi Amin and President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe.
“This great country’s capable of bold leaps,” Noah said. “It took one in 2008 when it elected its first black president. Now, in 2016, I say it’s time to be bold once more and elect its first African president.”
