  • From a corrupt politician's perspective: *The worst crime is exposing a corrupt politician.* -----> This is what Julian Assange did. From the people's perspective: *The worst crime is SELLING OUT.* ----> This is what Trevor Noah did.

  • It's moments like these where I miss Stewart. He was able to succinctly explain the gravity of the situation and then make you laugh about the absurdity of the political system that led to it. Noah fails miserably at both.

  • Tbh this piece is highlighting the new daily show turn for the worst. It’s more a comedic show than a journalist one. I beileive it was worth mentioning that the new president of Ecuador was against the protection of Assange and the fact that he supported Catalonia bid for independence and thus creating strain between Spain and Ecuador. Buzzfeed level man

  • First, Thank you Asange for exposing the rot in the Kenyan Government. Last, Shame for depicting Asange as a mere mortal who is afraid of the establishment as you probably do. To be precise. I do not hate Julian. I celebrate the man.

  • Just a mediocre joke? No critical content at all? Pfff... Are you completely compromised like Obama? Just a public figure to distract with forced laughs? Stupid and empty approach to something serious. When you share limited light jokes about Trump just to create massive distractions while Trump, Israel and Mike Pence do whatever the fuck they want, maybe you are part of the problem. A paid accomplice. Maybe you really are Trump’s friend. After your jokes, NOTHING really happens at all. Absolutely nothing

  • Shame, you forgot to mention the millions of dollars lent to Ecuador after they delivered Assange, and also the pardon the new little capitalist dictator of Ecuador got from several debts. This was a sellout from Ecuador, finally the USA got to Ecuador and corrupt them into giving Julian up. Too bad you just want to break a joke instead of informing for real the rise of capitalism fascism.

  • This is the first time I am really disappointed in Trevor Noah. He must have been misinformed or felt threatened? He should sit down and investigate Julian Assange's case and come back with some new punchlines against the scandal of Ecuador's Ambassade and the new president of Ecuador, including the US war crimes. Of all people, Trevor should feel solidarity with a political prisoner and the hell Assange have been in for the last 7 years.

  • There were so many jokes you could make on this. The cat jokes and immaturity jokes were low hanging fruit, there was a true variety of potential jokes. How he's getting arrested for helping someone direct a hacking (indirect influence) while trump get's a "not not guilty" assessment in the Muller report with pages of "substantial" evidence, and the dual standards*. Snowden gave a quote on this to Motherboard, there's so much interesting material there that could be worked on! You could have talked about how America and the UK have double standards toward free speech. You could have mentioned his hard work in making sure that information that we deserve to know is available to us. There are tons of jokes about how some people celebrated and LOVED/Hated Assange when he released information on a president/gov/group they detested/supported and then switched their tune when he did it to their side/enemy. How he was a flawed man, not perfect, even a bit of a Hypocrite in his pursuit of providing information to the masses - but was still true to his core values, and put his life at risk to give us information. There's so much content beyond cat jokes. :/ *Side note to explain the above (*) :fyi Muller straight up prefaces the report by saying since trump's a sitting president so he chose to follow the policy that he can't be Indicted and thus it wouldn't be fair to make a judgement of guilty on someone who can't go through due process to defend themselves - hence they ONLY conclusion he could reach is not guilty or not not guilty). Also Trump dropped him like a hot potato when he was no longer useful.
