Trevor Noah went over President Donald Trump’s recent accomplishments on Tuesday night’s “The Daily Show,” and called Trump’s leadership a “TV presidency.”
“He loves the performance of doing things. But a lot of the time, nothing’s actually being done. Essentially, Donald Trump wants to be president, but he doesn’t want to do president.”
Noah discussed Trump’s infrastructure deal, which he promised back in April was underway, but it was recently revealed that there’s no plan yet.
“Just like most of Trump’s deals, once you start to read the fine print, you realise it’s not what it seems.”
Noah recalled the Saudi arms deal last month that Trump said would bring “hundreds of billions of dollars” and jobs to the United States. But there actually wasn’t a deal.
“It was people saying, ‘Maybe we’d like to do deals in the future,'” Noah said.
Noah also talked about Trump’s proposed tax cuts. He showed a clip of Trump saying that a bill is “moving along in Congress, and I believe it’s doing very well.” But there is no tax bill moving along in Congress.
“So much of what Trump says has happened hasn’t happened at all,” Noah said. “I don’t know about you, but I think it’s time we take action and crack down on these phony claims.”
Noah then took out a tiny desk, similar to Trump’s, and an oversized pencil. He signed what looked like an executive order and said, “Done. Done! It’s done, no more lies.”
