Last quote by Trevor Noah

But why? Was it because Philando Castile was being polite? Was it because he was following the officer's instructions? Was it because he was in the car with his family? Or was it because Philando Castile was black? It's one thing to have the system against you – the district attorneys, the police unions, the courts. That's one thing. But when a jury of your peers, your community, sees this evidence, and decides that even this is self-defense, that is truly depressing.feedback

Trevor Noah quotes

Jun 07 2017 - NSA

Just like most of Trump's deals, once you start to read the fine print, you realize it's not what it seems. Remember the giant Saudi arms deal last month? The president was bragging on Twitter: 'Bringing hundreds of billions of dollars back to the USA from the Middle East – which will means JOBS, JOBS, JOBS.feedback

Jun 07 2017 - NSA

I have to admit, when I saw that, I was like, wow, Donald Trump does get things done. Stroke of a pen. Boom. Decisive. Except then I learned that that executive order was more of an executive suggestion. Now, that tweet makes it sound like Trump completed a $110bn deal, got the cash, and then rolled back to America like a presidential Lil Jon. I was even excited. Except it turns out that there was no actual deal. There was no deal that was signed. It was people saying maybe we'd like to do deals in the future.feedback

Jun 06 2017 - London

What's got through is just the tip of the iceberg, and it's an enormous iceberg.feedback

Jun 01 2017

So I laid out the newspaper and I went to the bathroom on the newspaper, but in my haste, I didn't realize my great-grandmother was in the house – she was a very quiet person who would just sit in one spot until someone was talking to her. So I forgot that she was there and I did my thing, and while I was doing that, she called out – because she could hear the gentle plopping of something onto paper. So she called out, and I didn't respond. I managed to disguise my sin, and I put the paper in the bin and carried on [with] my life. In many ways, there was.feedback

Jun 01 2017

There was a demonic spirit in the house, and so the night that followed was one of vigil and prayer because there was a demon – and in many ways, there was.feedback

Jun 01 2017

It's a very difficult story to tell without making me look bad. Essentially what happened was I think I've always seen myself as pioneer – someone who's solution-driven. And the one thing we didn't have in the house was running water – no ablution facilities, so no toilets. The toilet was outdoors and it was shared amongst four or five houses that were connected on that piece of land. So to go to the restroom, you had to leave the house.feedback

Jun 01 2017 - Trump Presidency

I've given up predicting, nor do I ever wish to predict, the world of Donald Trump. He's like a tornado. We don't know where he's going to be, but we know what he's going to do. The effects of Donald Trump will be felt.feedback

Jun 01 2017 - Trump Presidency

I still have to wake up every single morning and try to get a firm grasp of what's happening, then pray to God that between 5 and 6 p.m., when I'm wrapping things up, the President of the United States doesn't throw the ultimate curveball that sends me writing an entire new show.feedback

May 31 2017 - South Africa

I was born in South Africa during a time when there was apartheid. Apartheid was a system of laws that were racist laws designed to separate and segregate people in the country. One of the core tenants of these laws was that black and white people weren't allowed to fraternize; weren't allowed to share the same spaces; weren't allowed to live in the same areas; and most importantly weren't allowed to have, as they call it, carnal intercourse.feedback

May 31 2017

My parents broke that law and I was a product of them breaking that law. And so, in essence, I was born a crime.feedback

May 31 2017

I think watching my mom, her growth post-shooting, our family and the way we became stronger, really became the example that I chose to live by. That's really what I've stuck to, and that's how I try to live my life every day.feedback

May 31 2017

I remember after the shooting, my mother was in the hospital, and all I felt was rage. My mother said to me, Don't hate him for doing this, but rather pity him because he too is a victim, in his own way, of a world that has thrust upon him an idea of masculinity that he has subscribed to and is now a part of. As for myself, I do not wish to imbue myself with a hatred that only I will carry.' . The mission I have adopted for the show is pursue the truth at all costs, because that is where the comedy lies.feedback

May 17 2017 - Trump Presidency

Trump is basically like that one guy who didn't know that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, and instead, the second he got home, posts all the pictures on Instagram and tags you and your wife in it.feedback

May 17 2017 - Trump Presidency

No one wants Russians getting information. It doesn't matter what the information is. It could be a surprise party that your friend told you about. If you tell the Russians, it's not going to end well. Your friend is going to wash up on the beach without his head. You know things are bad when you're describing your president's actions in the same way that you're describing the lovechild of an incestuous couple. Baby, it's not about me cheating on you, it's that these hoes ain't loyal.feedback

May 16 2017 - Nordstrom vs. Trump

CNN, why do you keep putting Kellyanne Conway on the air? Her statements are like milk that you leave out over night. They go bad real quick.feedback

May 16 2017 - Russia

I knew something was up when we saw President Trump with the Russians and they were smiling. There's only two times a Russian man smiles: the day he dies, and this. What's really sad about this is that Donald Trump is trying to impress the Russians with the fact that he's president. They know! At least now we know there are no aliens, because if there were, Donald Trump would have told us by now. He would have leaked it immediately. The good news is Trump listens during intel briefings, and the bad news is Trump listens during intel briefings.feedback

May 16 2017 - Russia

So the good news is, Trump listens during intel briefings.feedback

May 12 2017

Look at his smile, really? Your happiest moment in the White House is when the Russians come? I mean I guess I shouldn't be shocked. I'd also be happy if my boss came to visit me at work.feedback

May 12 2017 - Trump-Putin

It's starting to feel less like Putin is blackmailing Trump and more like he has him hypnotized.feedback

May 12 2017 - Russia

Russia is owning Donald Trump so hard right now, it's embarrassing.feedback

May 07 2017 - Women

There is one person I aspire to be every single day, and that is my mom: a powerful, strong black woman who never listened when people told her she couldn't be more. Thank you to Donald J. Trump for the comedy.feedback

May 05 2017 - Obamacare

Right now, Obamacare doesn't let insurers raise rates for people with preexisting conditions. But with this bill, their rates could go way up. And if people can't afford their higher rates, they get thrown into something called a 'high risk pool,' which sounds less like an insurance plan and more like something you find in Charlie Sheen's backyard.feedback

May 04 2017

A lot of people make that mistake with celebrities and people who are in places that are prominent. They go: 'Oh, you're just having a good time. You don't have issues.' No, everyone's got issues with self-esteem. Some people do not, but most people do. You know what's nice? A lot of women are really nice people. They'll go, Alright, you idiot, I'll talk to you.' And it all works out!feedback

May 04 2017

Never open with a joke. It is the most horrible thing. Jokes require context. Without context, you're just some random person who came and told someone they fell from [heaven] or some randomness, and if you mess it up you look worse and it seems like an insult. No humor! Just say hello. That's it!feedback

May 04 2017 - Trump Presidency

Was this a prank and if so how much can we pay you to end it? And he has a number, by the way. You don't need to explain it to the folks back home, you need to explain it to Americans. Because I feel like for the first time, Americans and everyone else in the world are both wondering at the same time, What the hell is going on in America?' It's an interesting time, where America's in a place where it feels like we're learning about the presidency at the same time as the president.feedback

May 03 2017 - Trump Presidency

She did so much dissing, all of the memes joined her on stage. This is classic Hillary though. She goes away for six months, plans all of her comebacks and then goes on Christiane Amanpour and lets them all fly. I will say this though, after 100 days of President Trump it was refreshing to hear a politician talk in full sentences about complicated issues. When Hillary is speaking you can really tell that she knows who Frederick Douglass is.feedback

May 02 2017 - Trump Presidency

He no longer has that new president smell. If I had to guess I'd say he now smells like nepotism and steak sauce.feedback

Apr 27 2017 - NAFTA

What are black people are supposed to do on this holiday?feedback

Apr 27 2017 - Slavery

What are black people supposed to do on this holiday? So I either don't get the day off, or I support slavery? Man, I'll take the day off, but I'm watching B.E.T. the whole time.feedback

Apr 25 2017 - Travel ban

It's 100 days in Trump time. For us, it's 15 years. It's starting to become clear that President Trump has accomplished very little of what he promised. Travel ban? Blocked. Healthcare plan? Blocked. And surprise, surprise, no one wants to pay for his wall. You don't get to just disregard the number because you don't like the current results. Because if most voters got to choose the number they preferred, well, you wouldn't be in the White House, Donald. It's true, you can't tear your eyes away from Sean Spicer. It's like watching a car crash that knows nothing about the Holocaust.feedback

Apr 25 2017 - Trump Presidency

I bet Trump is one of those people who makes too many new year's resolutions.feedback

Apr 20 2017

So Serena cheated. Because that's technically a doubles match.feedback

Apr 06 2017

He looks less like a press secretary and more like an overworked kindergarten teacher.feedback

Apr 04 2017 - Twitter

As someone who gets a lot of Twitter hate, I'd prefer it to come from a cute little egg.feedback

Mar 29 2017

If Trump only wants to spend time on the military then maybe we just have to make everything military.feedback

Mar 28 2017 - Fox

He's legitimately mad that the Democrats wouldn't vote to repeal Obama's healthcare bill. Wow, that Fox News shit was insane. No, in fact it sounded just like North Korea's propaganda news.feedback

Mar 21 2017

That is true, by the way. But at the last minute, she bailed on us, and the reason she gave – and this is true again – is that the administration didn't want her interview on 'The Daily Show' to eclipse the news of the day. Now, that doesn't really make sense to us because this was the news of the day.feedback

Mar 21 2017 - Wiretapping

That's right, people. Obama didn't wiretap Trump, and even the FBI thinks there is something at least worth investigating regarding how much Trump's campaign communicated with Russia. Wow. I did not see that coming.feedback

Mar 19 2017 - Thanksgiving

Imagine you're at Thanksgiving again and your racist uncle walked in.feedback

Mar 12 2017

There's definitely a sense of we're-in-this-together-ness. People are finding a space here in saying, Oh, I'm not crazy – somebody else is also outraged by this.feedback

Mar 07 2017

As with most Trump scandals, the most fun part of the ride is watching his people try, and fail, to defend him.feedback

Mar 07 2017

Just a week ago, the media was calling Donald Trump presidential. Didn't he learn anything from that? You know, the press was like, Dude, you can trick us if you want, just talk nice,' and still he was like, Pass'. You know the story's bonkers when your spokesperson says: 'He can speak for himself'. I'll agree with that: Trump has intelligence that I definitely do not.feedback

Mar 03 2017 - U.S. National Security Adviser

No matter how hard the Trump administration tries, Russia keeps coming back. I'd say that Russia is Trump's herpes. Every time we dig deeper into Trump's campaign, it seems like there's a new person that's connected to the Russians. First it was Paul Manafort, then it was Flynn, the whole thing is like one of those Russian nesting dolls… Now it's Sessions. He lied under oath, while interviewing to be the guy who prosecutes people for lying under oath.feedback

Mar 03 2017

How do Trump's people keep forgetting that they've met with Russians? Lemme tell you something: If you meet a Russian, you remember them. Those people make an impression. The moment they say 'Hel-lo,' it's an immediate fight-or-flight response. You don't forget that. Meeting a Russian is always the highlight of your day. You could meet an alien after you meet a Russian and still you'd be like, You'll never guess what happened on the way to that alien.feedback

Feb 12 2017 - Trump administration

The room is so black it looks like a photo negative of the Trump administration.feedback

Nov 09 2016

I genuinely don't understand how America can be this disorganized or this hateful, I don't know which it is. Right now, I'd call it a nail-biter if I had any nails left.feedback

Jul 13 2016

I know there are moments where I feel like I have excelled or reached where I would like to be. But I'm far from, from where I would like to end up. For now, it is a good grade.feedback
