Looks like Jon Stewart passed his obscene baton to Trevor Noah. The new host of “The Daily Show” picked up right where Stewart left off, using his first show to comment on the pope’s penis.
The offensive segment begins with a voice-over:
“After being greeted by the president, the vice president and an adoring crowd at Andrews Air Force Base, he [Pope Francis] was whisked away in a tiny Fiat dwarfed by the Secret Service vehicles surrounding him.”
This tees it up for Noah: “That’s a tiny car. Somebody’s compensating. I’m saying the pope has a huge c**k [bleep]. That was a joke. That is a joke. And what a waste.”
The real waste is Noah. Look for him to continue the Stewart legacy by giving a pass to Muslims (out of fear), African Americans and Jews (out of respect), homosexuals and illegal immigrants (out of political correctness)2C and all the others for whom it is taboo to mock in the entertainment industry.
If Noah had any guts, he would break the Stewart mold and choose new targets, but that would mean new writers. Even if he did, he’d still be stuck with those who have a genital fixation—it’s who these people are.
The real joke is that Noah and his fans think he’s creative. How much are they paying this guy?
