Trevor Noah Says ‘White House Rose Garden Is Like the Wet Market of America Right Now’ (Video)

Trevor Noah dissected last week’s “super-spreader” White House event on Monday’s “Daily Show,” joking that the recent positive COVID-19 test results that have been revealed for President Trump and dozens of people who are in close contact with him mean that “The White House Rose Garden is like the wet market of America right now.”

“Turns out, while you’ve spent the last seven months hugging your grandma through a giant condom, Trump and his friends are having no-mask cocktail receptions, indoors, where the guest of honor is COVID-19,” the Comedy Central late-night host said, referring to the Sept. 26 celebration for Trump’s Supreme Court pick Judge Amy Coney Barrett. “And now at least 30 people in Trump’s circle have tested positive for COVID-19. You realize that means there’s been more infections at the White House over the last day than in New Zealand, Vietnam, Taiwan, Thailand and Australia combined.”

Noah emphasized that he doesn’t see the “massive outbreak” at the White House as “karma” for an administration that has downplayed the coronavirus, but as “consequences.”

“It’s not karma to get hit by lightening when you’re standing on the roof of a skyscraper holding a metal rod while there is lightening. The universe didn’t do that s–t to you, you did that s–t to yourself!”

“The Daily Show” host also made it clear he does not want Trump, who left Walter Reed hospital Monday after a three day stay, to lose his life due to his COVID-19 infection: “I want him to lose an election.”

“I also don’t want him to die because then Mike Pence would be president. And then we might as well be dead, because Mike Pence is the most boring

“A massive outbreak at the White House is not karma, it’s consequences,” Noah said on “The Daily Show.” “It’s not karma to get hit by lightning when you’re standing on the roof of a skyscraper holding a metal rod while there’s lightning.

While details remain murky about Trump’s true condition and questions linger about the White House’s lack of safety protocols and decision not to do contact tracing amid the mass outbreak, late-night comics lambasted Trump on Monday over his own infection and his handling of the pandemic.

“They are inveterate liars, they can’t help themselves. They’re also really bad at it. Seriously, what’s more troubling — that they lie all the time or that they lie all the time and have shown no improvement in lying?” Seth Meyers said on NBC’s “Late Night.” “It’s like sending your kid to math camp for a week and when they come back, they tell you it was the toughest nine days of their life.”

Several hosts homed in on a staged photo op the White House released of Trump working inside Walter Reed Military Medical Hospital over the weekend. Although the photos showed the president sitting in two different rooms, metadata reviewed by The Washington Post showed the images — including one of Trump writing on a blank sheet of paper — were taken minutes apart.

“People are saying that he’s just writing his name on a blank piece of paper. But that’s not true,” Jimmy Fallon said on NBC’s “The Tonight Show.” “That’s not a blank piece of paper. That’s just his entire plan to stop covid.”

“President? He looks like he should have a booth at Comic-Con,” Meyers said.

Trump also drew particular scorn from the
