“Many people and pundits were amazed at how smoothly President Donald Trump sounded when he spoke to Congress on Tuesday night, but Trevor Noah was suspicious. It’s probably because he’s seen too many journalists who were fooled by Trump’s previous presidential pivots.”

“You don’t have to be a genius to know that Donald Trump is playing you! Fake like you’re presidential and people will believe you’re presidential. This was the plan all along. It’s not Hamilton, but it’s a pretty good act,” Noah is quoted as admitting.

The night before, a YouTube clip shows Noah doing a segment on the GOP vs. Constituents.

“Last week, Congress went on break. And as a tradition, they all went back to visit their districts and host town hall meetings, you know — the ones where they can collect from the people they have been screwing over,” Trevor began, adding that normally, the meetings are emptier than Floyd Mayweather’s bookshelves.

He noted that when you tell people a president with ties to Russia is planning to take their healthcare away, you may as well put your feet on their couch. Trevor Noah then showed footage from the meetings, where one woman said that she would be dead if it wasn’t for Obamacare. In another meeting, people were shouting, “Shame!”

“Do you know how bad you have to be to turn all of your constituents into the shame nun from Game of Thrones?” Noah asked the audience, which resulted in many laughs.

“You know what would be even funnier — if that senator ended up being a fan of Game of Thrones,” Noah continued, adding that if he were the senator, he would ask them why they can’t afford healthcare, but can afford HBO.

Noah admitted that it was inspiring to see people engaging in democracy in such an active way, although some protests seem less effective than others.
