Trevor Noah Loves How NATO Leaders Who Mocked Trump Are ‘Gossipy Bitches Just Like the Rest of Us’ (Video)

“The Daily Show” looks at video of world leaders mocking Trump behind his back

Like a lot of people, Trevor Noah found the news that several world leaders were caught on camera mocking Donald Trump behind his back absolutely hilarious. Particularly because of how relatable the whole thing seemed to him.

“That video’s amazing for two reasons: One, it is crazy that we were able to hear a private conversation between major world leaders, did they not know this was happening?; and two, that when world leaders get together they are gossipy bitches just like the rest of us,” Noah joked on Wednesday’s “The Daily Show.”

For those catching up, Trump traveled to England on Monday night to attend the latest NATO conference where he expected to brag about his dubious accomplishments. Unfortunately, late Tuesday night, grainy cellphone video taken from a reception earlier in the day at Buckingham Palace appeared to show Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and French President Emmanuel Macron privately making fun of Trump.

“I thought after meetings with Trump, world leaders would be like ‘OK, we need to go back and draw up a new treaty.’ Instead,” Noah said about the matter, “they’re out here like ‘what was he wearing?’ And the French guy is like ‘OK so he can’t speak English? I mean I don’t speak English but he really can’t speak English.’ It turns out NATO is so catty they should get Andy Cohen to host it.”

Noah then turned to Trump’s reaction to the whole thing. On Wednesday, when asked about it during a joint appearance with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Trump said about Trudeau “well, he’s two-faced” in an unmistakably dejected tone. Shortly after, POTUS abruptly canceled a scheduled press conference and returned to the U.S.

“To be fair, Justin Trudeau is two-faced. He’s got a white one and a brown one,” Noah joked, referring to Trudeau’s history of wearing racist costumes. “As for Trump going home early, guys, I think they hurt his feelings. It’s like Trump was at a sleepover, and all the other kids turned on him.”

But Noah had some surprisingly kind words for Trump, sort of: “To be honest, I don’t blame the Donald for flying home early. Mr. President, you shouldn’t be in a place where people are gonna laugh at you behind your back. You get on Air Force One and you fly straight back home, where we promise that we will laugh at you to your face.”
