“The Daily Show” went live after the first presidential debate concluded Monday night, and host Trevor Noah took the opportunity to rip into some of Donald Trump’s debate missteps, including his odd “sniffing” problem.
Noah started out by dismissing Trump’s claim that Hillary Clinton had been “fighting ISIS” for her “entire adult life.”
“ISIS has been around since 2004,” Noah said. “So that would make Hillary 26 years old? And she can’t be 26 because Donald Trump wasn’t hitting on her. I don’t understand.”
The host proceeded to criticize Trump’s claim that avoiding federal taxes made him “smart.”
“I’m sorry, what? Dude, taxes are a responsibility, not something to evade,” Noah said. “You’re running to be the No. 1 citizen of a country. You shouldn’t brag about ways you found ways to get around the rules.”
Noah concluded with a humorous montage of the sniffing sound Trump made throughout the debate, which was so persistent that it led Howard Dean, the former Vermont governor and presidential candidate, to question whether it was due to cocaine use. Trump suggested afterward that the sound was caused by the microphone he was using.
“I don’t want to start any rumors, but there’s a reason I think Trump didn’t do well,” Noah said. “I’m not sure and I’m not trying to start rumors, but Trump was sniffing a lot at the debate … He was probably sniffing all of the bulls— he was saying.”
