The Daily Show's Trevor Noah doesn't get why Fox News is supporting the Canada trucker blockade

The anti-vaccine mandate "Freedom Convoy" of big rigs and other vehicles blocking three major U.S.-Canada border crossing and strangling the business district of Canada's capital, Ottawa, has now drawn the ire of Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Conservative Ontario Premier Doug Ford, major automakers, 911 operators, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and the White House, which urged Trudeau on Thursday to address the blockade.

Even Canada's interim Conservative opposition leader, Candice Bergen, who initially supported the protesters, told them Thursday that "the time has come to take down the barricades, stop the disruptive action, and come together," because "the economy you want to see reopened is hurting." The protesters are mostly digging in and expanding to other chokepoints.
