Even Trevor Noah Sees Benefits of ‘President Wild Card’ Trump When It Comes to Foreign Policy
Liberal host of “The Daily Show” Trevor Noah is causing a bit of a stir for a monologue from last Wednesday that’s since gone viral. In it, he acknowledges that a lot of these foreign policy blunders wouldn’t happen under former President Donald Trump, pointing out that other countries wouldn’t pull similar tricks that they have on President Joe Biden, since Trump was so unpredictable.
Noah was reacting to the news that Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) won’t take the president’s calls as the United States struggles with surging gas prices amidst the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The president, also last week, had finally announced a ban on Russian oil imports, after some confusing talking points and blame games from the White House.
The host made several jokes at Biden’s expense, including about an early bedtime. “I mean, look, I know it’s hard to arrange those calls. You know, Riyadh[, Saudi Arabia] is eight hours ahead, Biden is asleep by 4 p.m., it’s a narrow window to make it work, but still: That must have been really embarrassing for Biden. Can you imagine? He phones them and they don’t pick up?”…
“And you know what? You can say what you want, but this would have never happened to Donald Trump. Never,” Noah said, also mentioning how other world leaders found him so unpredictable. “No one was ever ignoring Donald Trump’s calls. ‘Cause if you ignored Donald Trump’s calls, you didn’t know how he would respond. Maybe he’d send an angry tweet, or maybe he’d just, like, ban your country from everything. You don’t know.”
