Even Trevor Noah Mocks Media’s Mushy Reaction to Biden’s Speech

You know the media’s reaction to President Biden’s speech Wednesday was bad when even left-wing comedians are mocking them for it. 

On Comedy Central’s The Daily Show Thursday night, host Trevor Noah took aim at journalists on CNN and MSNBC for their over-the-top reactions to the Democrat’s address. 

Noah first teased Biden for his lofty goal to end cancer and racism in America, before marveling at his “hella progressive” agenda:

Wow. Ending racism and cancer. Biden is dreaming big. I half expected him to go you know what, bleem [bleep], we’re going to Mars [bleep], we’re going to Mars right now, get in the rocket, we’re going to Mars right now! And by the way for someone who people think of as a moderate, this agenda was hella progressive: free college, free child care, I mean you would think that Bernie was just off screen, you know with his fists, ‘don’t forget about student debt Joe Biden or I’m going to shove 99% of this fist up your ass.’

But even the liberal host noted that this far-left speech seemed to only win over liberal journalists.

“Now of course Biden will only be able to get any of this done– if he can win over the country. But if the only people he needs to persuade are liberals on CNN and MSNBC, then my friends he’s got this thing in the bag,” he joked. 

After playing clips from MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell, Brian Williams and CNN’s Van Jones praising Biden’s “amazing” “extraordinary” and “beautiful” “FDR fireside chat,” Noah mocked the media:

“Wow, okay. I like how the news went from [feigns tough voice] ‘we’ve got to hold those in in power accountable,’ to ‘Aww! He’s just like my grandpa. I love him so much!’”

He added:

Also, grandpa — fathers are not really known for whispering that they will end systemic racism, usually grandfathers are whispering ‘I think the bus driver is a Puerto Rican.’ Unfortunately for Joe Biden the entire country is not made up of liberal pundits. There are also conservatives and they were just a little less excited.

He went on to compare Republicans’ warnings of Biden’s socialist speech to a sports team calling foul constantly. Noah actually agreed with Senator Ted Cruz calling the speech “boring” before jokingly offering himself up as Biden’s “hype” man:

Honestly that was the most relatable thing Ted Cruz has ever done. Because that speech was boring. When you consider that almost none of Biden’s goals are going to get past Congress, I mean we basically just listened to an old man talk for an hour about his dreams. But also a policy speech is just a set of directions for where the president wants to take the country. And in a way, directions are supposed to be boring…But until then, we can’t have people falling asleep in the middle of Biden’s speeches. And it is safe to say that Biden is not going to get any more energy any time soon. So maybe just maybe all he needs is someone to hype them up! [pretends to be a DJ at speech trying to make Biden’s speech more exciting]

 JOE BIDEN: With the plans outlined tonight, we have a real chance to root out systemic racism that plagues Americans. Let’s end cancer as we know it. It is within our power. It is in our power to do it. 

TREVOR NOAH: Wow. Ending racism and cancer. Biden is dreaming big. I half expected him to go you know what, bleem [bleep], we’re going to mar– [bleep], we’re going to Mars right now, get in the rocket, we’re going to Mars right now! And by the way for someone who people think of as a moderate, this agenda was hella progressive: free college, free child care, I mean you would think that Bernie was just off screen, you know with his fists, ‘don’t forget about student debt Joe Biden or I’m going to shove 99% of this fist up your ass.’

Now of course Biden will only be able to get any of this done– if he can win over the country. But if the only people he needs to persuade are liberals on CNN and MSNBC, then my friends he’s got this thing in the bag.

“Wow, okay. I like how the news went from ‘we’ve got to hold those in in power accountable,’ to ‘Aww! He’s just like my grandpa. I love him so much!’”

Also, grandfathers are not really known for whispering that they will end systemic racism, in fact usually grandfathers are whispering ‘I think the bus driver is a Puerto Rican.’ Unfortunately for Joe Biden, the entire country is not made up of liberal pundits. There are also conservatives and they were just a little less excited.
