    Trevor, I used to laugh at some of your skits; but after viewing this skit on the arrest of Julian Assange, the only thing that came to mind was, “Jy! Son of Patricia, jy behoort jou te skaam! The gravity of the event has obviously eluded you.

    tREVOR: You've had many distasteful jokes twisting the truth to fit your Democratic/Clintons/Obama criminal emperium, but by far this is the most disgusting! To joke with a man that risked his life and other things to bring to fore the criminal activities of rogue regimes around the world is the lowest of low since your misguided support of bloodthirsty witch like Clintons! Every right thinking person should be asking for the real criminals he exposed to be punished and not to arrest the messenger of truth!
    Kill Julian Assange today, which other real journalist will be next tomorrow?

  • Just a random guy wanting to study filmmaking

    6:06 Actually he was on another continent. The guy is called Lenín Moreno, president of Ecuador, and accepted a lot of money from the US to retire Assange's asylum status. How dumb and ignorant you must be for not knowing such a simple thing

    shameful state of society and media.not surprised trevor noah also a hack.
    So assange reveals the war crimes of us government and he is being punished for it not the people who committed them.
    And the media is concentrating on whether he was skating and not cleaning up the embassy :/

    Yeah your job is safe because you don't tell news, it's entertainment. How do we know this, because you just poke fun and have a laugh track. So anyone looking for facts, go elsewhere because this guy only gives his bosses opinion on anything.

    skipping bail is a complete fabrication - Sweden allowed him to leave BUT then re-opened the case after he left - excellent reporting at the time by Aust ABC, 4 Corners, segment "Sex, Lies and Julian Assange" paints awful picture of the Swedes, Brits & the Yanks, including DNC and ole Hillary - check the laugh track fool as current Ecuadoran former minister who knew Assange 6yrs who said current Ecuador Govt is slamming & putting out false info - and how did that joke of yours about Australian Aboriginal women go down? What a fool this comedian hack is

    And *NOT ONE* _“freedom loving”_ Patriotic American, *British, or Australian* military member defended Julian Assange. Ya’ll claim to value honor and *honesty?* Julian Assange *honestly* informed the public of heinous abuse of power and the murder of innocent people by LYING corrupt government officials. Yet, ALL you Active military (and veterans), who took an honorable oath, did NOTHING to physically protect Assange from being kidnapped and put in chains LIKE A *SLAVE.*

    Since the arrest of Assange, the US media has not had any media protests. Instead, they cheered. Look! The news of American liberal democracy is controlled by the government and the ruling class. Going to fucking freedom and democracy and justice is false.

    Amazing how sensitive everyone is to these jokes. You’d think you knew Assange personally. Let’s not pretend we know all of his motivations or that he has never committed any crimes to find out “the truth”. It could be possible that everything people think he is, he is. A victimized journalist, a thief, a panderer, a sleaze bag, an altruistic hero, a nut, a hacker, a Trump supporter, etc. No one has clean hands and no government is pure. People, nations and diplomacy are all complicated things and taking one side over the other leads to more decisiveness without any real change. Just be happy you can entertain yourself and have the freedom and time to express yourself openly on this platform. Get over yourselves. It is possible to be human and do good and bad things.

    my question is what audience are you preaching to besides the studio? its very clear that most people left or right oppose the arrest of julian, yet something has driven you to go on with this segment anyway?

    Julian Assange is our HERO... his light shall not die. To imprison Assange is to shoot the messenger. Arrest the criminals he exposed instead, he didn't commit those heinous crimes but told of them. AND you find that funny?

    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.

    Very clever Trevor. This peice of satire should get more people talking about assange. More outrage, picketing, larger groups of people demanding clearer exposure, cleaner movements. Pleasr do some on this topic.
