Yesterday was quite the day. We found out that former FBI Director James Comey wrote a memo, detailing a meeting with Donald Trump on February 14th. “I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go,” Trump told Comey, according to the memo. “He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.”
“The news, once again, is focused on President Trump,” said Trevor Noah, opening the latest edition of The Daily Show. “This evening, we just heard that he personally asked former FBI chief James Comey to end his investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn and his ties to Russia.”
Noah added, “I will say this: I hope the Republicans’ new health care system is good, because I’m getting whiplash from all these scandals.”
“So here’s what we know: Last week, President Trump met with Russian diplomats and reportedly told them classified information about an ISIS terror plot, and we know that that information came from a foreign ally who did not want the U.S. to share it with the Russians because they know you don’t want Russians in your business,” said Noah.
“How are we not getting this? How are we still confused by this?!” he continued, beside himself. “Nobody wants Russians getting information! It doesn’t matter what the information is. It could be a surprise party that your friend told you about. If you tell the Russians, it’s not going to end well. Your friend is going to wash up on the beach without his head and you’ll be like, ‘But… this had nothing to do with the Russians!’ and the Russians will be like, ‘Why take the risk? You never know.’”
