Trevor Noah Wants to Save the Amazon With Trump’s ‘Magic Sharpie’ (Video)
Friday, 6 September 2019 () On Thursday’s “The Daily Show,” Trevor Noah came up with a good use for Donald Trump’s obsession with whether or not Alabama was ever threatened by Hurricane Dorian — to help fix the ongoing Amazon jungle fires.
In case you haven’t been paying attention, on Sunday Trump tweeted that Alabama was in the path of Dorian. But it turned out that actually wasn’t the case, and per usual when Trump says something weird, a lot of people made fun of him. Mistakes happen, but for some reason Trump spent the week since insisting he didn’t actually make a mistake. Most memorably on Wednesday, when he showed reporters in the white house a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration map projecting the path of Dorian that had clearly been altered, with a Sharpie, to extend the projected path into southern Alabama.
About that, Noah said that Dorian is “such a crazy storm that it somehow hit the Bahamas, the Carolinas, and then thanks to President Trump’s Sharpie pen, also Alabama.”
He then then turned the discussion to the issue of climate change, including a sizable time spent on the ongoing Amazon fires (which, spoiler, even with Noah’s jokes are still very, very scary). “Who can stop this,” Noah asked. The answer: “Donald J. Trump.”
“See, what we need to do is get the president to pull out that magic Sharpie of his, and we need to get him to send that hurricane down from Alabama all the way to Brazil,” said Noah, who pulled out a map and demonstrated how it would work. It’s funny stuff — except for the threat climate change poses to humanity, of course. Watch the whole clip above.
