President Trump spent the weekend on the attack, starting with an odd takedown of French wines and then an odder attack on his predecessor, Trevor Noah said on Monday's Daily Show. "He's seriously blaming President Obama for the temperature in the White House? You see, this is what happens when you run out of things to blame Obama for."

"Then on Saturday, he took his beefs to the next level," Noah said, recapping Trump's attacks on Rep. Elijah Cummings (D) and his majority-black Baltimore-area district, using language about "infestation" he tends to deploy only "when talking about people of color." And "you don't need to be a genius to see what Trump is implying, because he's not a subtle person," he added. "Like, if Trump was a painter, his art wouldn't need to be interpreted, it would just say, 'I'm Sad' in giant letters."
