The Daily Showdown

Trevor Noah sympathetically argues that Sarah Huckabee Sanders got off easy

"The immigration debate continues to dominate the news — families separated, children in cages, and now, people are going hungry," Trevor Noah said on Monday's Daily Show. No, not the migrants — Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who was asked to leave a Virginia restaurant because she works for an "inhumane and unethical" administration.

"I know that you guys are cheering," Noah told his audience, "but I'm sorry, I think that was the wrong thing to do. I think what the restaurant should have done is treated her the same way she treats the press: They should have just brought her an empty plate, and then when she says, 'Uh, where's my food?' you go, 'Oh, it's right there. ... The chef told us there's food, so there must be food there, and that's our position.'" Actually, he added, "asking Sanders to leave was probably the nicest thing they could have done." He explained why, then mocked her assertion that she treats people with respect.

Noah concern-trolled the Trump staffers who "can't get anyone to swipe right on them" on dating apps, then hit his point: "Honestly, I feel bad for Sarah Sanders and her people. Some restaurants won't serve them, people on dating sites prejudge them before even giving them a chance, and every time they step outside, they're made to feel like they don't even belong here. It's really horrible. But on the plus side, now the Trump administration has a taste of what it's like to be a minority."

"The left is painting the right as a heartless immigrant-caging party," Jordan Klepper said at The Opposition, and he asked Kobi Libii how wrong they are. Libii said "conservatives have been dancing around this for too long," and they should just say, loud and proud, "We want to keep America white" — in part because "white people are famously bad at dancing." And then things got pretty intense. Watch below. Peter Weber
