5 Things We love About The Daily Show Host, Trevor Noah
1. He has been very Critical of this administration and Trump.
In an interview with Huffington Post, Trevor said this about Trump
Moments like these reminded Noah that Trump really enjoys being president, he just doesn’t like the work.
“You realize, that’s all Trump ever wanted was to play president,” Noah said. “We should have just given him a Fisher-Price set.”
2. We loved his book Born a Crime. It was funny and educational I learned so much about apartheid and what that meant for whole groups of people. He also shared with us the fact that his mother has God’s direct line. She was shot in the head and survived nearly unharmed.
3. He is Polyglot, a person who knows and is able to use several languages. He speaks English, Afrikaans, which is a derivative of Dutch, Zulu, Xhosa, Tswana and Tsonga, German.
4. He survived a twitter scandal. Who can say they did that! Within hours of his being announced as Stewart’s successor, twitter had found old jokes that Noah had made through his Twitter account, which was criticized as being offensive to women or Jews and to be making fun of the Holocaust.
But my Boy hit them with this, through twitter, “To reduce my views to a handful of jokes that didn’t land is not a true reflection of my character, nor my evolution as a comedian. That pretty much shut that down, well that and Mary Kluk, chairperson of the South African Jewish Board of Deputies (SAJBD), said that the jokes were not signs of anti-Jewish prejudice and that they were part of Noah’s style of comedy.
5. Trevor has talked openly on his show about depression.
I shied away from any type of photograph … because I thought I was hideous, because in my eyes I was. I had giant nodules on my face, around my neck, and the puss would ooze out of them. I had to go on medication repeatedly and the medication makes you suicidal and depressed and then you have to go off it because of your kidneys. It was just such a trying time.
In school that’s your cache; how you look and what you can do determine everything in school. … I was one of those kids who just stayed in a corner and watched the world pass them by. And I think, if anything, the biggest knock you experience in that world is — in terms of your identity — is you feel like you are less than you are, you feel like you don’t have the right to belong. You’re watching the world and the world exists without you. www.npr.org reported
