Daily Show's Trevor Noah Mocks Right Wing For Cheering Boehner's Ouster

The Daily Show's Trevor Noah kicked things off on his first show by promising to continue the "war on bullshit" and having a bit of fun with the GOP and their glee that John Boehner is resigning.

The Daily Show was back this Monday, and host Trevor Noah started things off with a tribute to the former host, John Stewart: Trevor Noah Kicks Off Daily Show Premiere by Promising to Continue ‘The War on Bullsh*t’:

Trevor Noah kicked off his inaugural Daily Show tonight by addressing how “weird” this transition is, thanking Jon Stewart, and promising to continue “the war on bullshit” that Stewart spoke of in his final Daily Show last month.

Noah got all of the awkwardness out at the top before continuing things in true Daily Show fashion: riffing on the Pope’s visit––”he rolls humble”––and the departure of John Boehner, to which Noah cried, “Why leave now? I just got here!”

Boehner's not leaving just yet, so I'm sure he'll be supplying him with more material like this for at least a little while longer: Trevor Noah mocks GOP ouster of ‘too liberal’ Boehner: It’s like crack telling meth it’s not addictive enough:

In his debut as The Daily Show host, Trevor Noah bashed GOP “radicals” for cheering House Speaker John Boehner’s exit. [...]

Noah noted that as speaker, Boehner basically decided which laws came up for vote, making him “basically the bouncer at Club Congress, which is probably the worst club ever.”

He then pointed out how radical the conservative Republicans are that cheered Boehner’s leaving at this week’s Value Voters summit.

“You see, for this faction, even John Boehner — the man once ranked the eight most conservative man in Congress — wasn’t right wing enough,” Noah said. “It’s like crack telling meth that it’s not addictive enough.”

Teasing him for his propensity to shed tears, Daily Show correspondent Jordan Klepper added that Boehner’s next move may be a gig as as a professional onion slicer, funeral seat filler, or Claire Danes impersonator.
