No president is immune from scandal, President Biden included, Trevor Noah said on Monday’s Daily Show. But maybe not all scandals are created equal.
“Over the weekend, Biden took a short break from his day-to-day presidenting to catch the Super Bowl from his home in Delaware — and if you aren’t immediately outraged about that, well, you obviously haven’t been watching the last 48 hours of conservative news media,” Noah said. “But it’s not surprising that Biden bent the travel rules for himself, because he’s been president for less that three weeks and already he’s had more scandals than we can keep track of — although, my friends, we are going to try in our brand-new segment: ‘Joe Biden, The Worst President in History That We Can Remember.'”
Noah covered White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki’s Space Force brouhaha, Biden’s comments about honorable FBI agents, Hunter Biden’s memoir deal, and the three scandals Biden chalked up even before becoming president. “That’s right, Joe Biden stole 10 minutes of Donald Trump’s presidency, or as Fox News calls it, Tenghazi,” Noah deadpanned. “Who knows what Trump could have accomplished in those 10 minutes? I mean, maybe that’s when he was finally going to release his health care plan. He could have used that time to walk down half a ramp! And do you have any idea how much Fox News Trump could have watched in that 10 minutes? Like, 10 minutes! So those are they many Joe Biden scandals by the muckraking journalists of conservative media in just his first three weeks in office.” He predicted some Biden scandals that could come next.
One of those conservative would-be Biden muckrakers lost his platform over the weekend, and The Daily Show also took a moment to say farewell to Fox Business host Lou Dobbs, “the most North Korean broadcaster America has ever seen.” Watch his highlight reel below.
