“Daily Show” host Trevor Noah said he’s “starting to think that President Trump might be full of s—” after his public spat the NFL’s Philadelphia Eagles.
Trump disinvited the Super Bowl champs from a traditional post-victory meeting with the president after accusing the team of disagreeing “with their president because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.” Trump announced that “a different type of ceremony” would happen instead.
“Huh, that’s weird. Trump is canceling events if a lot of people don’t show up. That must be a new policy,” Noah joked as a photo from Trump’s (relatively) sparsely-attended inauguration appeared onscreen during Tuesday’s episode.
Noah then noted that the Eagles players hardly set a precedent. Last year, Trump abruptly disinvited the Golden State Warriors after Steph Curry said he didn’t want to go. And, Noah added, “the Cleveland Browns released a statement saying that the only reason they’ve never won the Super Bowl is they don’t want to meet Trump. Apparently they’re not losing, they’re #resisting,” Noah quipped, sounding out the word “hashtag.”
As for why he thinks Trump is full of it? The Eagles never knelt during the anthem last season.
Noah also mocked Trump’s version of “God Bless America,” in which he apparently didn’t know the lyrics.
