  • *CONGRATULATIONS* to Trevor Noah for finally showing what type of person he really is in his latest promo commercials for his so-called show. He tells us we should “ROAST CORONAVIRUS SO HARD” He states coronavirus you got so many zits it looks like your exfoliating with pizza crust. Then. The coronavirus starts to cry and Trevor feels sorry for what he said to the coronavirus and says “ AHH, I FEEL BAD NOW” Unfortunately, this is not comedy. This is exactly how Trevor really feels about a Covid Virus that has Led to the following. *HE FEELS BAD ABOUT OFFENDING CORONAVIRUS WITH THE BELOW ATROCITIES THAT HAVE OCCURRED TO ALL OF HUMANITY AND OUR FAMILIES* A dramatic loss of human life worldwide. The economic and social disruption caused by the pandemic is devastating: tens of millions of people are at risk of falling into extreme poverty. The pandemic has decimated jobs and placed millions of livelihoods at risk. Nearly half of the world’s 3.3 billion global workforce are at risk of losing their livelihoods No income means no food. Border closures, trade restrictions and confinement measures have disrupted domestic and international food supply chains in which we all suffer. PLEASE WAKE UP AMERICA People like this who have a voice to millions of people worldwide should not have the ability to continue to have a platform as the LATE SHOW to spew his one-sided agenda to the masses. Trevor. As well as many other public figures in similar positions need to be held accountable for their one sided globalist views based on their beliefs and not be so closed minded that there are others who believe differently and that’s ok. That’s why we live in AMERICA and have law and a CONSTITUTION that our country was founded upon. Fortunately for Trevor. Since he is such a beloved character for the globalist agenda his past exploits were quickly squashed by the globalist in which he works for within BIG MEDIA. NOTE: A lot of people have not seen the real Trevor and have not forgot his past. Its funny that in such a CANCEL CULTURE we live in now he wasn’t cancelled long ago for his supposed offensive/hateful comments which were much more offensive than the majority of the unfortunate cancelled individuals of today. WHICH, by the way means anyone who speaks derogatory towards the left and their agenda who does not agree to their personal opinions. If you do. You are deemed a liar, conspiracy theorist, white supremacist or domestic terrorist. His show is supposed to be an Award-winning program that examines the day's biggest news stories in politics, pop culture, entertainment, sports and more. That description is the furthest from the truth. The show is simply about a puppet who is would be clinically deemed Self-Absorbed. Remember folks TREVOR SAYS YOU MUST TRUST SCIENCE. So, here is the clinical description of a Self-Absorbed person which is simply another term for a narcissistic personality. They are always on the defensive. They do not see the world from another person’s eyes. Anyone who opposes his views. They don’t see the big picture. A self-absorbed person thinks the world is just about them. They are imposing. They always think they are superior to others. They are so consumed by their own world and self-image They are extremely opinionated. They hide their insecurities behind a cloak of success. They devalue others. Constructive criticism is okay, but self-absorbed people always take criticism too far and use it as a weapon to allow them to devalue others. They can be arrogant. This is because they feel they are so important and better than every other person. A self-absorbed person can often be egotistical. They hide who they are. coming across as pretentious They are extremely selfish. They think they are great and the world out there is wrong. The previous is just one persons opinion as allowed for by the the Bill of Rights which are the first 10 Amendments to the Constitution. It spells out Americans' rights in relation to our government. It guarantees civil rights and liberties to the individual-like freedom of speech, press, and religion. NOTE: These rights should not be compromised no matter left or right when given a platform to promote ones-self and their personal beliefs. All issues should be equally presented and considered by all parties involved and not be suppressed/withheld as they are in todays society.

  • How is telling black ppl they're oppressed and can never succeed "uplifting them" trevor?

    • Is that all you picked from the video? And of course, it had to be from someone that is not black!

  • That blur of the background looks so weird lol

  • Is the daily show a black propganda machine..? Black this and black that..its sooo racist..

    • @Kelly Shay and then what if i be me? What Will u be?

    • You be you dude

    • @Kelly Shay why did the truth hurt u? Imagine it Said "uplifting White communities"??

    • Wow. Just wow

  • Great and amazing job acknowledging Russell's perceived misconceptions from other people, juxtapositioning it with his empowering and humanitarian efforts. Much love and continued success to you brother.

  • Russell Westbrook is going to be the MVP!!!!

  • #trevornoahisahack

  • #bringbackjonstewart

  • I super align with RW and his mission. Russel and Trevor I have two projects that align here that I am directly involved in. 1. We Tsunami - a consumer loyalty program that gives equity back to the community by supporting local businesses that support local progress. 2. The Halo App - A financial platform that skips banks and lets the community loan to each other. So far we have seen tremendous numbers for the individual lenders and a high level of commitment by the borrowers. This system fortifies the mycelium of our community. On a side note, Trevor. Thank you and your team for the diligence and comical point of view for these major issues and solutions in the world.

  • Im a fan of Russell after watching this, big up

  • Very humble guy

  • That was a fantastic interview. I truly enjoyed watching that 🙌🏾

  • Sometimes it’s not that the opportunities aren’t there .. we just don’t know how to find them or we aren’t aware that they are there for us. Coming from Chicago it’s not as easy as it seems. You can’t just think your going to look it up on google.💯

  • Russell Westbrook is a damn good man

  • Ahhh I love Russ, he’s the best

  • Russell's cool. If I had seen this interview earlier, I could have included him in my All Star voting 😃 Suggestion for next interview and Daily Show's contribution to UNITY: interview with Tulsi Gabbard (what is it that even Republicans like about Tulsi as a Democrat)❓❓❓

  • Great interview. Russ that guy!

  • This Guy keeps it a 100% on and off the court.

  • I thought he was a psycho maniac. This interview he smiles- what a contrast. He is a hot head, and that's my first impression.

  • Respect😎

  • that is the dopest hoodie ever Trevor got on....

  • good guy russ

  • Great game lady night, Russ. You're looking more like yourself, keep up the good work. Sincerely, Wizards fan

  • Banking and money management should be mandatory classes in 9th grade

  • Such great smiles, I could watch them giggling all day

  • I lived in OKC for 22 years. When the Thunder team was created and Russell Westbrook came to OKC it was the most exciting time in the City. He created an atmosphere of motivation, doing good for your community, and giving back. Russell Westbrook is a huge inspiration. What a beautiful life he is living.

  • Great interview Trevor! Good guys on both sides.

  • Hon'ble THE DAILY SHOW WITH TREVOR NOAH, Please save Bangladesh Democracy. #DhakaMafia

  • Hell if i had his Money i Wouldn't mind Wearing anything that i felt like WEARING and tell the Rest to Step Off!! But i Couldn't wear yeezy B.S Sorry🙏😷🙏😷🙏😷

  • The man is genuine.

  • Even though he seems like an ass on the court but he is really a great guy

  • If he’s a good player, why did he get traded so many times? That said being a pro ball player on the bench is an awesome job most Americans would love to have. Get all that money and not have a broken body would be ideal. 😉💋

    • @Jelly Whit all good, take care.

    • @D B thank you for that, now l know too. 😚

    • He asked for a trade both times (OKC and Houston).

  • Got nothing respect for this guy!

  • Trevor Interviews so good, giving Russ and all guest the opportunity to speak out without interruption and Rus ist wayyyyyyyy more kind and cool than I ever imagined. Really cool fella

  • i hate westbrook! i wish matt barnes was back! barnes used to punch people right in the a$$hole!

  • My favorite NBA player.

  • I came to hear trash talk, and I got wisdom

  • This is a guy I want to know more about, in spite of my deep dislike of sportsball! 😉

    • I know what you mean! I didn't even know who he was before watching because I avoid sports, but this guy is great!

  • My Man!

  • Government supported shoulda been aborted

  • What an incredible man

  • still a cuomosexual, are you?

  • ⭐️🇺🇸🦅TRUMP2024🦅🇺🇸⭐️

  • Love Russell! He's such a great guy. We were sad to see him leave Oklahoma. Not sure why there's 35 dislikes though. 😒

  • America is a country of immigrants. Last year we had new 45 millions of immigrants. They started their lives from 0, and many of them succeeded. It is sad that propaganda holds back some Americans

  • Cringe

  • 💙

  • That gap is too perfect. Like someone edged up his teeth.

  • Shout out to West. He's a very strong individual. Always stands his ground. Never be the one to "go with the flow". He's a savvy investor too. Good luck with Varo venture.

  • I hate this stupid show I’m only watching because Westbrook is my favorite player

  • And y’all wonder why so many of us from Oklahoma constantly defend Russ’

    • Sorry man, but if I'm not mistaken, on Russ' first game back in OKC as a Rocket, you guys did a terrific tribute film to him. That was incredible.

    • Your comment made my day. Im in missouri and ive always loved Russ. If i knew nothing about basketball, i could observe the loyalty Oklahomans have to Russ even after he left and learn all i need to k ow about his character. How many times have athletes left their market and become hated by their old fan base? Not Russ. That speaks to his character and yours too. Sorry so wordy but i like ANYBODY who loves Russ like I do. He has substance---and i want him to be an "asshole" on the court.

  • Didnt recognize him until he opened his mouth

  • Much love from okc Brodie

  • Russs

  • Darn most definitely made me change the way I thought about him..! 🙏 now I am a fan of Russell..! 👊💪

  • Why Not! Russell Westbrook!

  • Kobe said Russell played with a passion like he had, so I fully support Russell..did i mess up the name? Maybe cuz im a Seahawk Fan too!

  • snowflakes is a (usually excessively spoiled) liberal Millennial who acts like an immature child despite being a grown adult. They often live in an Echo Chamber of their own beliefs and surround themselves exclusively with people and opinions that only agree with their own. Snowflakes are known for constant complaining and literally crying when things don't go their way. They are infamous for engaging in violent protests involving the burning of innocent businesses, Government buildings, Police cars, American flags, and sometimes even their own Universities. An overly sensitive whiny person who makes a scene when it doesn't get his/her way and blames everyone but his/herself. the little crybaby liberal who’s mother should’ve spanked him/her as a child. WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAW WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAW MAMMY LOL

  • Big ups for that!

  • DC!!! GOAT

  • I'm glad He is a Wizard!

  • Just raise the rich peoples taxes, society shouldn‘t rely on philanthropy!

  • I love Russ. Never change man

  • Unbutton that top button

  • Wow, I was astonished by Russell Westbrook. I wish he could pay for my graduate school 🎓

  • Look at Russ man so inspirational


  • Does anyone know if theres a way to turn of the technological harassment via youtube ads without having to buy your freedom?

  • My agenda, my design. Whats next on this years agenda? Biden to pass away soon. Archangels directed to take him. Check. Societal Reset Synodic cycle completions. Check Check. Break all the Mental Slavery Mind Control Programming humanity is under. Check check check of my Divergent list

  • Now, back to my Divergent Slaying! Lol. Whats next? Whats next on the agenda this year. . .

  • Trevor Forever, your beautiful too.

  • Such a beautiful man

  • Series recommendations

  • Russ is hated too much unnecessarily. Such a down to earth man who is a fantastic leader and team player! I wish nothing but the best for the Brodie

  • I remember that he didn't start at UCLA...Any I would say why? The man is an awesome human being and a great player!

  • Russ is a scowling presence on the court, so I never knew he had such a wonderful personality. Really I watched this. Inspirational to say the least.

  • Nut funny

  • Great human being, great athlete. So happy that I got to see him play in OKC many times. Russ is a huge inspiration!

  • Russ is athletic but sucks at basketball

    • Just admit ur a hater and have no knowledge about the game then talk to me

  • Who really needs scary movies when American (History) is a great example of one. We will never forget Tulsa race massacre carried out by angry white mob.

  • Great interview! Two intellectual individuals conversing is always entertaining!

  • Feb 1964 - A change is gonna come - Sam Cooke. 1965 - Color of Man’s Skin 4:41-6:15 - Billy Graham. Aug 2017 - Very fine people, on both sides - Traitor Trump. May 2020 - George Floyd and BLM protests.

  • Is the US still the Land of the Free or the Land of the pinky power MAGATs? Ask the First Nations what they think. Ask Blacks when they see Police and Karen. Ask Chinese when you say Chinese Flu.

  • Radical as being killed for being BLACK WITH A CELL PHONE or SUBWAY SANDWICH. The World should hold the US accountable for American human rights abuses at home and abroad. If the US is no longer the land of the free, would you swap the statue of liberty for a statue of James Cook? What about a three for one deal?

  • "We don't let racism exist because racism breeds extremism. Let New Zealand be a place where there is no tolerance for racism ever. And that's something we can all do". - J.Adern New Zealand PM.

  • Much respect to Russ! He a real one.

  • I want to be the best at the game....can't develop a jump shot 😭😭😭. And this is coming from a russ stan....hoping he turns this year around

  • is nba super star....has shit quality internet...that lag

  • What interesting dynamic person and athlete. I have gained a ton respect from watching how approaches the game with such passion. It’s cool to see the human side of this super star athlete.

  • Reminder: you base your reality and world view on the opinions of a comedian who is a South African citizen but South Africa was not good enough for him so he abandoned his country and moved to USA but also hates USA lol. What an inspiring story of opportunism and lack of loyalty.

  • God I love watching this guy...but this year has me so sad....

  • Love you Russell!!! I say your name all the time like Kobe too. My wife can confirm it. Keep balling bro!!!!

  • His background is blurred. Wow
