‘Daily Show’ Host Goes on TV, Actually Lauds Trump for Keeping Promises

‘Daily Show’ Host Goes on TV, Actually Lauds Trump for Keeping Promises Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah gave President Donald Trump credit for doing what he said he was going to do while running for office in 2016. Appearing on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Thursday night, Noah said Trump in fact is the first president to “actually deliver” on his campaign promises. The South African native recounted how he was surprised when he took over “The Daily Show” in 2015 that people were frustrated with him because he did not display more indignation on the program. “And I was like, ‘What do you have to be angry about? Things are going great right now; your economy is growing, your president is loved, your footprint around the world is one that’s being cemented as the super power. What are you angry about?’” Noah said. However, Noah said that when Trump took over, the 45th president gave him fodder for his program. “Then when Donald Trump was elected and then proceeded to do the things that he had promised, ironically, right?” he said. “Because it’s funny that Donald Trump would be the first presidential candidate to actually deliver,” Noah continued. “Hate him or love him, hate him or love him, he’s doing the things that he said he was going to do.”
