Trevor Noah Compares South Africa's Leaders To America's



>> Stephen: LADIES AND
GENTLEMEN, WELCOME BACK TO THE SHOW. FOLKS, I GREATLY ADMIRE THE WORK
OF OUR FIRST GUEST TONIGHT. HE HOSTS "THE DAILY SHOW" EVERY
NIGHT ON COMEDY CENTRAL. PLEASE WELCOME TREVOR NOAH! ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
>> THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. THANK YOU SO MUCH. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. >> Stephen: GOOD TO SEE YOU. GOOD TO SEE YOU. I JUST WANT TO SAY SINCE THE
LAST TIME I HAD YOU ON HERE, LAST SEPTEMBER OR SOMETHING. >> THAT'S RIGHT. >> Stephen: YOU HAVE WRITTEN
AND RELEASED A BOOK CALLED "BORN A CRIME." >> I DID, INDEED. >> Stephen: ALL RIGHT, I'M
ANGRY THAT YOU HAVE TIME TO DO THAT. ( LAUGHTER )
OR THE ENERGY, REALLY. BECAUSE I JUST GO HOME AT NIGHT
AND THEY PUT ME IN AMNIOTIC FLUID SO I'M READY FOR THE SHOW
THE NEXT NIGHT. >> YOU HAVE AN HOUR SHOW, AND I
HAVE A HALF HOUR SO. YOU ALSO HAVE A FAMILY. I'M ALONE. ( LAUGHTER )
>> Stephen: THAT'S TRUE. THAT'S TRUE. YEAH. BUT YOU TRAVEL ALL OVER THE
WORLD. YOU'VE GOT TO BE EXHAUSTED ON A
CERTAIN LEVEL. >> YOU KNOW WHAT, I FIND I GET
MY ENERGY FROM DOING THE THINGS I LOVE. IT'S ACTUALLY SOMETHING I
LEARNED FROM YOU. I DON'T KNOW IF YOU REMEMBER
SAYING THIS. WHEN CREATING THE SHOW, STEPHEN
COLBERT SAID– LIKE HE'S NOT HERE– HE SAID, "THE JOY OF THE
SHOW IS NOT OFTENTIMES IN PERFORMING IT. THE JOY IS DERIVED FROM CREATING
IT, AND WHAT YOU'RE WATCHING IS A MANIFESTATION OF THAT JOY." >> Stephen: YOU SHOW THE
AUDIENCE WHAT WE ALL TO DO TOGETHER. >> IF YOU DO WHAT YOU LOVE– AND
I KNOW IT'S HARD IN THIS WORLD– IF YOU DO THE THING YOU LOVE YOU
DON'T GET TIRED. YOU GET TIRED BECAUSE OF THE
CHALLENGE. BUT YOU DON'T GET MENTALLY AND
EMOTIONALLY CHALLENGED. MAN, THAT WAS A NICE DAY. IMAGINE DOING SOMETHING YOU LOVE
UNTIL YOU GOT TIRED. THAT SOUNDED WRONG, BUT YOU KNOW
WHAT I'M SAYING. ( LAUGHTER ). >> Stephen: IT SOUNDED VERY
RIGHT TO ME. OF COURSE, THERE ARE DAYS LIKE
TODAY, WHEN SHOWS LIKE MINE AND SHOWS LIKE YOURS, WE TALK ABOUT
WHAT HAS HAPPENED IN THE DAY, AND TODAY THERE WAS ANOTHER–
THERE WAS ANOTHER HORRIFIC SHOOTING IN AMERICA, THIS TIME
TARGETING, APPARENTLY, G.O.P. MEMBERS OF CONGRESS. >> RIGHT. >> Stephen: DO YOU HAVE ANY
THOUGHTS ON WHAT HAPPENED TODAY? >> I THINK WHAT YOU SAID,
SIMILAR TO WHAT I HAD AS AN INITIAL THOUGHT– ESPECIALLY
BECAUSE WE WATCH THE NEWS SO MUCH– AND THAT WAS IT WAS GREAT
TO SEE PEOPLE FROM BOTH SIDES SEEING THIS AND UNITING UNDER
THE BANNER OF "HUMAN" AND "AMERICAN" BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE. THAT'S ONE OF THE THINGS THAT
WE'RE SEEING LESS AND LESS OF IN SOCIETY TODAY, IT FEELS LIKE. IT'S ALMOST SOMETHING– I WAS
TALKING TO SENATOR AL FRANKEN, AND I WAS SAYING TO HIM, LIKE–
A LOT OF PEOPLE DIDN'T KNOW HE WAS FRIENDS WITH JEFF SESSIONS
BEFORE THE WHOLE, YOU KNOW, TESTIMONY. AND I THINK THAT'S SOMETHING
THAT'S LACKING IN AMERICAN POLITICS IS POLITICIANS SHOWING
FROM BOTH SIDES OF THE AISLE THAT THEY ARE FRIENDS. IT'S ALMOST BECOME LIKE
WRESTLING, WHERE THE FANS DON'T REALIZE THAT THOSE PEOPLE GET
ALONG. ( APPLAUSE )
THOSE PEOPLE FIGHT EVERY SINGLE DAY, BUT, LIKE PAULRIAN SAID
TODAY, LIKE NANCY PELOSI SAID, WE FIGHT TOOTH AND NAIL, BUT WE
DON'T FORGET THAT WE ARE PEOPLE. WE ARE FRIENDS, WE ARE FAMILIES,
WE ARE COLLEAGUES. AND I FEEL LIKE THEY COULD DO A
BETTER JOB OF SAYING THAT TO AMERICANS, "HEY, WE FIGHT. YOU CAN FIGHT. BUT DON'T FORGET AT YOUR CORE,
YOU ARE AMERICANS. DON'T EVER FORGET THAT." ( APPLAUSE )
>> Stephen: WELL, THAT'S ABSOLUTELY– THAT'S ABSOLUTELY
RIGHT. BUT THAT ALSO REMINDS ME THAT–
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN THE UNITED STATES? HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN LIVING
HERE FULL TIME NOW? >> THIS IS MY SECOND TIME LIVING
HERE. I LEFT JUST TO PRACTICE LEAVING
BEFORE DONALD TRUMP SAID SO. ( LAUGHTER )
SO I LIVED ON THE WEST COAST FOR TWO YEARS. AND THEN I LEFT THE UNITED
STATES AND WENT TO WORK IN THE WORLD, AND THEN I'VE BEEN LIVING
HERE I GUESS IT'S CLOSE TO THREE YEARS. >> Stephen: FIVE YEARS ALL
TOGETHER. ARE YOU AN AMERICAN CITIZEN YET? >> NO, NO, NO, NOT ALLOWED TO
BE. >> Stephen: NOT ALLOWED TO BE. >> NOT YET. >> Stephen: ARE WE PLAYING
HARD TO GET. >> NO IT'S TIME. I GET IT. WITH AN IMMIGRANT THEY'RE LIKE
WE WANT TO SEE WHERE THIS IS GOING AND FIGURE OUT ARE YOU
REALLY INTO US? LET'S GO SLOW. AND I GET IT. >> Stephen: I GUESS THAT'S THE
QUESTION. ARE YOU REALLY INTO US, TREVOR
NOAH, AFTER THREE YEARS HERE AND EVERY NIGHT TALKING ABOUT WHAT'S
GOING ON IN AMERICA, DO YOU STILL FIND US ATTRACTIVE? >> I'M HERE AND I'M LOVING IT. I'M A CITIZEN OF THE WORLD, AND
I'VE ALWAYS LOVED THE UNITED STATES. >> Stephen: YOU CAN'T ACTUALLY
BE A CITIZEN OF THE WORLD. THE WORLD DOES NOT ISSUE A
PASSPORT. >> SURPRISINGLY IT DOES. THERE IS A WORLD PASSPORT. IT DOESN'T GET YOU ANYWHERE, BUT
THERE IS A WORLD PASSPORT. >> Stephen: IT GETS YOU TO A
PHISH CONCERT. TIE-DYE. >> MY DREAM WAS TO LIVE IN THE
U.S. MOSTLY BECAUSE THIS IS THE HOME OF STAND-UP. AND I LIVE THAT DREAM EVERY DAY. AND I'M BLESSED. WHEN PEOPLE GO WHICH COUNTRY DO
YOU LIVE IN? I GO, "I LIVE IN NEW YORK. IT'S NOT A COUNTRY, IT'S A
PLACE." IF YOU KNOW NEW YORK, YOU KNOW
WHAT I'M TALK ABOUT. IT'S A WORLD UNTO ITSELF. >> Stephen: EVERY LANGUAGE
SPOKEN HERE, EVERY RELIGION PRACTICED HERE. >> I DON'T TAKE THAT FOR
GRANTED. I WAIT TO SEE– LET'S FUT THIS
WAY– IF AMERICA IS AROUND WHEN I CAN BECOME A CITIZEN, THEN
MAYBE WE'LL SEE IF I JOIN IN. >> Stephen: I HOPE SO. >> WE DON'T KNOW. WE DON'T KNOW. MAYBE I'LL BE INVITING YOU TO
SOUTH AFRICA. YOU NEVER KNOW. >> Stephen: ANOTHER I'VE BEEN
TO SOUTH AFRICA, NOT TO THE CITIES BUT I'VE DONE LIKE, YOU
KNOW, THE UNITED STATES, YOU KNOW, WESTERN MAN THING. I'VE GONE AND DONE THE SAFARI–
>> THAT IS THE SPHAEPS THAT IS THE CITIES. ( LAUGHTER ). >> Stephen: YOU OUGHT TO GET
SOME OF THOSE LIONS OUT OF YOUR CITIES, THEN. DOES SOUTH AFRICA HAVE ANYONE OR
HAVE THEY EVER HAD ANYBODY LIKE OUR PRESIDENT? BECAUSE–
>> WOW. >> Stephen: WE'VE– WE'VE
NEVER HAD A DONALD TRUMP BEFORE, SO WE DON'T KNOW ENTIRELY WHAT
TO DO WITH HIM. ( LAUGHTER )
HE SEEMS TO BREAK A MOLD. HE BREAKS A LOT OF NORMS FOR US. >> YES, HE DOES. >> Stephen: HAS SOUTH AFRICA
HAD ONE JUDGE IT'S TOUGH. DONALD TRUMP IS SO DIFFERENT
THEY DON'T KNOW THAT I CAN DEFINITIVELY SAY WE'VE HAD OR
NOT HAD A DONALD TRUMP. HE REMINDS ME OF AFRICAN
DICTATORS BUT I DON'T KNOW FOR CERTAIN —
>> Stephen: IN WHAT WAY? >> I MEAN, I'VE SAID MANY TIMES
LIKE, YOU KNOW, HE LOVES HIMSELF. HE BELIEVES THAT ONLY HE CAN FIX
THE PROBLEMS. HE SPEAKS IN THE THIRD PERSON. HE– I MEAN, HE'S THE FIRST
AFRICAN DICTATOR TO USE TWITTER, WHICH IS THE MILLENNIAL COMING
OUT. BUT HAVE WE HAD– LET ME FUT
THIS WAY: I DON'T KNOW FOR CERTAIN. I WILL SAY THIS, THIS IS MY
PRESIDENT. MY PRESIDENT IS CURRENTLY
EMBROILED IN A SCANDAL WHERE HIS FAMILY HAS BEEN USING THEIR TIES
TO THE PRESIDENCY TO MAKE MONEY. SO I DON'T KNOW IF THAT RINGS A
BELL… ( LAUGHTER )
LET ME SEE WHAT ELSE? WHAT ELSE? UHM… HE HAD A FEW ISSUES
BEFORE HE BECAME PRESIDENT WITH SEXUAL HARASSMENT AND– NO,
OKAY. LET ME THINK. ( LAUGHTER )
HE'S FRIENDS WITH VLADIMIR PUTIN. THAT'S DIFFERENT– NO, NO. I DON'T KNOW. YOU TELL ME, STEPHEN. >> Stephen: I'LL TRADE YOU. ( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE ) JUST TO TRY. >> WE SHOULD DO THAT, RIGHT? >> Stephen: LIKE SWAPPING. >> WE SHOULD DO A PRESIDENT
SWAP. I WILL SAY THIS– NOW, IMAGINE
DONALD TRUMP AND IF HE WAS BLACK. HMM? >> Stephen: HE'S–
>> HE'S A MAN OF COLOR? IS THAT WHAT YOU WERE GOING TO
SAY? >> Stephen: YES. >> YOU CAN SAY IT. >> Stephen: I WASN'T SURE. YOU CAN SAY IT BEFORE I CAN, MY
FRIEND. "THE DAILY SHOW" IS DOING
SOMETHING INTERESTING THIS WEEKEND– YOU DO SOMETHING
INTERESTING EVERY DAY– BUT YOU'RE ACTUALLY DOING SOMETHING
ON THE WEEKEND. EXPLAIN TO THE GOOD PEOPLE HERE
IN MANHATTAN. >> HERE'S THE THING. A LOT OF PEOPLE GO AS "THE DAILY
SHOW" YOU HATE ON DONALD TRUMP, AND I DON'T BELIEVE THAT WE DO,
BUT I DID FEEL THERE WAS SOMETHING WE COULD DO FOR THE
PRESIDENT IN AND AROUND HIS BIRTHDAY. THERE HAS BEEN A CONCERTED
EFFORT BY PEOPLE, ESPECIALLY WITH THE ADMINISTRATION, TO
SILENCE THE PRESIDENT'S SWEETS TWOOETS. WE KNOW ABOUT THIS, KELLYANNE
COB WAY, THEY GO, OTHER IGNORE THE TWEETS. I DON'T THINK THAT'S COOL. SAY WHAT YOU WANT ABOUT HIS
PRESIDENTING. HE'S THE KING OF TWITTER. HE ROCKS IT. YOU CAN'T HATE ON DONALD TRUMP
WHEN IT COMES TO TWITTER SO WE DECIDED TO HAVE A TWITTER
PRESIDENTIAL LIBRARY THAT HONORS DONALD J. TRUMP'S TWEETS. I KNOW, NORMALLY–
( APPLAUSE ) YEAH, THANK YOU, THANK YOU VERY
MUCH. YOU KNOW, NORMALLY, I KNOW IN
AMERICA, YOU HAVE THE PRESIDENTIAL LIBRARY WHEN THE
PERSON LEAVES OFFICE. WE DON'T KNOW WHEN THAT WILL BE. >> Stephen: OR EVER. >> YOU DON'T KNOW. SO APPRECIATE PERSON WHILE
THEY'RE STILL AROUND. >> Stephen: WHERE IS IT? HOW CAN I SEE IT? >> IT'S ACTUALLY A BLOCK AWAY
FROM TRUMP TOWER. IT'S GOING TO BE ON 3 WEST
57th STREET. SO HE CAN, LIKE, JUST POP OUT,
AND THEN– YEAH, JUST LIKE YOU KNOW… >> Stephen: ARE THERE ANY
DISPLAYS? >> IT WILL BE EVERYTHING. THE TWITTER LIBRARY WILL GIVE
YOU CONTEXT, WHAT THE TWEETS ARE ABOUT, THE STORY. HE'S AN AMAZING MAN WHEN IT
COMES FOR TWITTER. IF HE WAS RUNNING FOR TWITTER
PRESIDENT, I WOULD SAY EVERYONE SHOULD VOTE FOR HIM, EVERYONE. >> Stephen: ARE THEY ORGANIZED
BY SUBJECT? ARE THEY ORGANIZED BY HASHTAGS? >> AS MUCH AS WE COULD. THE ONLY SUBJECT THAT'S
CONSISTENT IS "SAD." THAT'S THE ONLY THING. >> Stephen: THERE IS THE "SAD
HALL OF FAME." >> THAT'S ABOUT IT. ( APPLAUSE ). >> Stephen: YOU SAID YOU– YOU
KNOW, YOU CAME, YOU LOVE NEW YORK BECAUSE NEW YORK IS THE
HOME OF STAND-UP. YOU STILL DO STAND-UPS ON THE
WEEKEND >>. >> NOT JUST IN THE UNITED
STATES. BUT AROUND THE WORLD. YOU FLY. HOW DO YOU FIND THE TIME AND HOW
DO YOU HAVE ANY JOKES LEFT. >> I FIND THE JOKES FROM
STAND-UP AND BRING THEM TO "THE DAILY SHOW." IF I TALK ABOUT NASHVILLE OR
MAKE A JOKE ABOUT EL PASO, TEXAS, OR SAY SOMETHING ABOUT
EERIE, PENNSYLVANIA, I LIKE TON I WAS THERE. I'VE BEEN TO 45 STATES NOW. I'VE BEEN TO HUNDREDS OF U.S. CITIES. I SAW MAR-A-LAGO IN PERSON
BECAUSE OF STAND-UP. I NEVER WOULD HAVE GONE TO PALM
BEACH. THEY WOULDN'T LET ME IN, BUT I
WENT TO MAR-A-LAGO. >> Stephen: I HEARD IT WAS
VERY NICE. >> I SAID CAN I COME IN. AND HE WAS VERY SWEET BUT HE
SAID, "IT'S FOR MEMBERS ONLY." AND I SAID, "I'M THE HOST–" AND
HE SAID, " WE KNOW WHO YOU ARE. LIKE SECURITY KNOWS WHO YOU ARE. >> Stephen: HAVE A GOOD SHOW

ME. >> Stephen: HIS BOOK, "BORN A
CRIME," IS AVAILABLE NOW. TREVOR NOAH, EVERYBODY! WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK WITH ILANA
GLAZER.

  1. Trevor Noah should go back to Europe and stop calling my continent and land his! Does he sees any black people in Africa looking like him! He must know that mulattoes are not Africans.

  2. J.M. reminds me of Maxine Waters street rampage. The difference is she has the damn sense to tone it down when it got out of control and she was told to shut up. J.M. has been convicted in the S. African Legal System for Hate Speech. What the F is there to take out of context. The man is dangerous and I don't mean in a good way. Whenever he is against something, force or violence will eventually be mentioned by him directed at his opposition.

    I Love Minister Farakahn. Notice how he kept his mouth shut when Baby Bush was in office? That is because he is a leader that has the maturity to know which way the wind is blowing and keep his people from being targeted for destruction. The only thing Farrakhan is guilty of is anger speech if we discount the X paradox.

    How often do you hear Farakahn talking about force? He is a far greater leader than J.M. can even aspire to be and one thing is certain … He's not a damn COMMIE!

    Go ahead Noah, tear his ass apart with the truth. Screw what those who disagree say. You're only telling the truth. J.M. is violent and hateful.

  3. Yes new shooting trans women and queer. ..
    And yes, time is intelligent way of judgement is someone fitting for passport.
    And he should be a shame, South African president is rasict nazi that hates , makes push for violence, and takeaway land's with out compasations from owner's.
    S.A.is crime pot, even worse that state's, parent's don't call kid's by their real name . in public for safety reasons. ..
    And Trevor is proud what they did from their country?
    Wishes this to USA and all the West? ???
    True we have issus, even more Wi letting in stagers that never adopted to us….We give passports to easy. …

  4. We were proud of him and now he's just an arrogant asshole. But if that's what it takes to please his new platform we wish him well…

  5. Noah was DEAD ASS WRONG for that. HE KNOWS full well that this is NOT what Mamumba said or wants. He SIMPLY wants for AFRICA and AFRICANS to have back ALL the land that was STOLEN from then especially DUE TO GENOCIDE AND APARTHEID. Trevor got to America and seems to have FORGOT CORRECT HISTORY. WE WILL NOT LET THAT HAPPEN! THIS TIME HISTORY WILL NOT BE WHITEWASHED. EVERYONE KNOWS that land was STOLEN due to slaughtering the NATIVES the ONLY reason Native Americans haven't been able to fight back was and is numbers and the fact that 5 dollar Indians have "established" a claim and "Indians" who have been brainwashed forgot over half of them WERE so called BLACK to be able to also use PAPER GENOCIDE by INTENTIONALLY MISLABELING/Classifying SOME Native Americans as BLACK. Not ALL "Black" people are descended from the African Slave. The original Natives get lighter due to infiltration of darker people weather due to RAPE or voluntary. #FACT
    AND BEFORE ANYONE COMES FOR ME WITH BULLSHIT YOU MIGHT WANNA LEARN HISTORY NOT THE BULLSHIT TAUGHT TO FIT CONQUESTS AGENDAS. BC I WILL NOT RESPOND TO MISINFORMATION. YOU can not have a conversation with a person desperate to hold on to COMPLETE LIES ESPECIALLY when its been CONFIRMED LIES and YOU still CHOOSE to perpetuate them. NO nation will EVER be blessed until it OWNS UP TO ITS ATROCITIES. And I don't mean the FAKE ones to STEAL NATIVE PEOPLE I don't care where their froms ORIGINAL IDENTITY. All it takes to learn TRUTH is a little research.

  6. Eating a peanut butter and onion sandwich to calm the mind whilst watching this.

  7. Two brilliant and intelligent comedians of our time, we would like to see you more often together to exchange views and present us more humorous moments.

  8. President swap…..imagine Donald Trump as a black person ????this reminds me of our own Julius Malema???

  9. At the end of the day both sides are friends we are Americans …..ironically explained from a South African ?

  10. OH! Such a BS! Before 2017….. he has no idea what he is stepping into…..chip jocks. I'm very disappointed!

  11. talking about dictators but he can't even say "the person of colour" ? Meh!

    The Left has done some serious mind-control and psychological manipulation.

    How exactly they always manage to do it? ? Honestly that is beyond me, yet to this day … ?

  12. There are people who have lived in America there whole lives and have never left their state. Trevor has been to 48 states so I say he’s more American than many Americans.

  13. Trevor tell them as my baby sone once told me " Home is where mum is" When is tha last time you ate Bunny chow.

  14. I thought Trevor was going to talk about the murders of white South African farmers. Why are Americans so uninterested in what’s happening to them? More importantly why doesn’t Trevor talk about this story more often? This strangely compares itself to The Young Turks YouTube news service where Americans are not interested in the namesake that committed the Armenian genocide. This lack of interest bothers me. Because it shows that there are some things like the blatant racism towards white South Africans and the Armenian genocide that are not seen as newsworthy by the MSM and talk shows, where the latter has gotten more politicised lately. My favourite bit is the denialism at the aforementioned two atrocities. One is a genocide and the other one is state sponsored racism. Even Trevor in his Twitter back several year’s ago denied that whites were facing overt racism. He claimed everyone is suffering. It is true that there is massive crime going on in South Africa as a result of poverty. However when the Russian government allows whites to escape South Africa, with the Australian government hoping to do the same, then something terrible is genuinely going on in Trevor’s homeland. I just wish he focussed on this type of racism as well.

  15. "Remember something that you love until you get tired"?…I remember these phrase asked by one of my student..where the hell she got this from?..it's Trevorrrrrr

  16. Reading this book was amazing, i was very proud. Trevor Noah, you rock!!! and your mom is a badass. sorry, Trevor, i like her more than you now. I really, really like it. I feel connected to it, the things he talked in the book most of them made me feel that I relate to the culture, way of things is in most Africa, except the apartheid. it is fun and I couldn't stop laughing almost every page.

  17. "we fight but don't forget at our core we are Americans" most important words to come out of his mouth in this interview.

  18. What is this with Trevor Noah? I agree with his politics but that doesn’t make him a comedian. I mean…you have to be witty, clever and funny to be a comedian, right? I hear people quoting Bill Maher all the time. Or Stephen Colbert. I even still hear Jon Stewart being quoted BUT I NEVER HEAR ANYONE QUOTING TREVOR NOAH! Not ever.
