On Monday’s episode of “The Daily Show,” Trevor Noah joined the rest of the non-Fox News-audience world in making fun of Steve Doocy’s defense of Trump immigration policies, by imagining what would happen if his logic was applied to pro wrestling.

Earlier Monday on “Fox & Friends,” while discussing the widely-condemned policy of separating undocumented immigrant children from parents, Doocy took issue with media video showing those children being housed in cages. Not because of the cages, but because of the word “cage.”

“Keep in mind — some have referred to them as ‘cages,’ but, keep in mind, this is a great, big warehouse facility where they built walls out of chain link fences,” Doocy said.

“Look man, we’re not idiots. A cage is a cage,” said Noah, who asked “can you imagine if ‘Fox & Friends’ did the announcing for WWE? Those fights would suck.”

Cue a video from a WWE fight, with Doocy’s weird terminology extrapolated to the color commentary:

“And now, we have two great friends standing on a chain link partition. They are really enjoying their time on this fence-like structure that is in no way a cage. Oh, oh oh oh, he’s helping him to the ground! Look at that, an opportunity to get a new table!”

Later in the segment, Noah talked about Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen’s press conference Monday, in which she followed the lead of her boss Trump in falsely blaming Democrats for his administration’s policy.

“OK, no I’m sorry, that’s some bulls–t, right? That’s just some bulls–t,” Noah said.
