Trevor Noah: Donald Trump Is Basically An African Dictator

Trevor Noah: "Welcome America. Welcome to my world."

The Daily Show's Trevor Noah had a bit of fun with GOP presidential frontrunner, Donald Trump, and his decision to pull out of the Fox debate this Thursday. After taking the viewers through a little bit of the back and forth between Fox's Megyn Kelly and Trump, Noah showed one of Trump's tweets attacking Kelly.

NOAH: Oh, nicely done Donald Trump. Nicely done. It's the same way we won't call you an asshole, because we too are constrained by political correctness... asshole.

Noah went onto question why Trump was so afraid of Kelly, and likened him to the dogs you see in You Tube videos where the dogs are too scared to walk past the cats.

After noting that Trump has once again "won the only fight that matters to him, the fight for attention," and the fact that missing one debate isn't going to hurt Trump much, Noah explained why he's not surprised by the way Trump has been acting. He reminds him of an African dictator.

After playing some news clips discussing how Uganda's president had just decided to skip out on a debate last week, Noah had this message for his audience:

NOAH: Welcome America. Welcome to my world.
