“Daily Show” host Trevor Noah has discovered a positive (but twisted) consequence of the coronavirus forcing government employees to work remotely: Potential foreign terrorists are afraid to enter “infectious America.”
President Trump has continued to downplay the severity of COVID-19, even though it has claimed the lives of more than 214,000 Americans and sickened more than seven million. Many in the Trump administration have followed the president’s lead by not wearing masks or practicing social distancing, which has made the White House and other federal buildings a “hotbed of infection.” As Noah puts it. And some of those buildings are now ghost towns.
“The country’s top generals and the guy who wears nuclear football are all in quarantine now,” Noah said in a video Saturday summarizing the news for the week. “And you might think this is the perfect opportunity to invade America because the Pentagon is going to have to coordinate America’s defense against Zoom. But, in fact, given how contagious America is right now, good luck convincing your soldiers to attack.
Showcasing his best Russian accent, Noah told an invisible comrade: “Sergei, it’s now [the] perfect time; go occupy [the] White House. “His invisible comrade replied:” No, why not you go occupy [the] White House? ”And back and forth,“ they ”were arguing.
“Basically right now America is that free mattress you find on the sidewalk. You could take it but you know it’s infested with Something, said the comedian.
“And you must appreciate the irony, right?” Trevor Noah asked. “The president, who has spent years blaming Mexicans for causing the disease, has personally turned the White House into a petri dish. “
