Trevor Noah is following in Jon Stewart's footsteps a tad too closely.
The new “Daily Show” host boasts the same hard-left ideology as his predecessor. No surprise there. We’ve witnessed that repeatedly over the last two months since Noah officially took the “Daily Show” reigns.
Now, he’s rebooting Stewart’s knack for hurling obscenities at GOP politicians while letting Democrats off the hook.
Thursday, Noah told viewers he felt badly for President Barack Obama for not being able to pass any new gun control legislation while in office. Of course, Obama had both the House and the Senate for the first two years of his presidency. That meant he had few restrictions on what he could do.
Noah didn’t mention that. Instead, the comic brushed past Obama’s inability to reach across the aisle and get something done, as he promised he’d do during the 2008 presidential campaign. Reporters and voters alike didn’t care that he had no record of ever doing just that.
Instead, Noah insulted key GOP politicians in a way Stewart might applaud.
“… the good news is if Obama wants to reverse that skin damage, he should take beauty advice from the people in charge of legislating change, like, for instance, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. He’s barely aged in the past six years. And all he’s had to do about mass shootings is take no steps whatsoever. Yeah. Congress has discovered the fountain of youth — pure distilled inaction. Applied liberally to the face and then stick your face up your own ass for six years.”

Noah’s nasty tone intensified while talking about Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas). The comedian targeted Cruz for not cancelling an appearance at a shooting range event held Friday that was scheduled before this week’s terrorist attack in San Bernardino, Calif.
“Fourteen people just lost their lives in a shooting, and Ted Cruz’s first thought is, ‘oh, that reminds me, I’ve got to send out my invites to my gun party,’” Noah said. “That seems like something you’d only do if you were an a**hole, which it turns out is exactly what voters are looking for.”
