Trevor Noah went after Fox News last night for how they've covered the Las Vegas shooting.

“Right now, he doesn’t fit any profile of any mass shooter, and you know who’s having a hard time processing all of that information? The good people at Fox News,” Trevor said.

He then talked about how the shooting didn't really fit their standard narratives, so they couldn't figure out how to politicize it.

“What kind of terrible people would push a political agenda the day after a mass shooting, a shooting like with Orlando?” Noah said. He played clips of Fox regulars doing just that.

“So clearly Fox’s whole ‘don’t politicize it’ is B.S.,” he said.

Noah then went after Jesse Watters for connecting the Las Vegas shooting to ... NFL players kneeling.

“I hear Watters’ point. You’ve got to show respect to the police,” Noah said. “Personally, I’d rather respect the police by reducing the number of guns that risk killing police, but yeah- I mean, not kneeling is good, too. Do whatever you want.”

He called Sean Hannity “Spongebob Squarehead” for bragging about his gun training.

“According to Sean Hannity, what really stops a bad guy with a gun is a Sean Hannity with a gun."
