Trevor Noah, the “The Daily Show” host on Comedy Central, released a surprising monologue during Tuesday’s show after it was reported that nations like the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia had refused to take Biden’s phone call to talk about possible oil deals.
The WH has officially denied the report, but the Trevor Noah said that regardless of the story being true or not, under Pres. Donald Trump, something like that would have never happened because of how unpredictable the former president was. He also poked fun at Joe Biden’s bedtime schedule.
On Tuesday, it was reported that Joe Biden started calling nations like the UAE and Saudi Arabia to talk about potential oil deals that would help offset the banning of Russian oil imports. Rather than boost drilling here at home, Joe Biden wanted to buy oil from those Persian Gulf countries.
The only issue is that they allegedly didn’t answer, and because of that, Noah slammed Joe Biden for the “embarrassing” news story.
“You have really got to be kidding me,” Noah stated after a brief montage of media reports regarding the story. “Apparently, Saudi Arabia will not even pick the phone up for the Pres. of the United States.”
Nonetheless, Noah stated, “You can say what ever you want, but this would not have happened to Donald Trump. Never.”
“Yeah, because if you were to ignore Donald Trump’s phone calls, you did not know how he would react. Maybe he would post an angry tweet, or he might just, like, ban your nation from everything,” Noah claimed. “You didn’t know.”
“That is why I bet in these types of situations, Joe Biden actually wishes that he could hire Donald Trump to step in as Pres. Wild Card. You know?” he joked. “Just to keep everyone on their toes. ‘Cause if Donald Trump was calling, you better believe the UAE — they will be racing to pick up that phone.”
Noah’s monologue was surprisingly conservative sounding. It is similar to what the GOP have been saying about Donald Trump and Joe Biden for years.
In 2018, Nikki Haley also stated that Trump’s uncertain reactions was working to the United States’ advantage and had helped her while in her job at the United Nations, CNN had reported at that time:
“He would ratchet up his rhetoric, and then I would go tell ambassadors ‘you know, he is pretty upset. I cannot promise you what he is going to do or not do, but I can tell you that if we do put these sanctions through, it would keep him from going a little too far,’” Haley said.
“I was attempting to get the job done. And I did get the job done by just being truthful but also by letting him be so unpredictable and not revealing our cards,” she said.
