New Daily Show Host Trevor Noah Is Callous Jew-Basher on Twitter

Trevor Noah, the newly announced replacement for Jon Stewart to host Comedy Central’s Daily Show, has a pattern of making comments over the years on his verified Twitter account about Jewish people that play upon derogatory stereotypes that reeks of anti-Semitism.

One comment was a Holocaust joke.

“Almost bumped a Jewish kid crossing the road. He didn’t look b4 crossing but I still would hav felt so bad in my german car!”

“Behind every successful Rap Billionaire is a double as rich Jewish man. #BeatsByDreidel”

“Messi gets the ball and the real players try foul him, but Messi doesn’t go down easy, just like jewish chicks. #ElClasico”

“South Africans know how to recycle like israel knows how to be peaceful.”

Noah, who is South African, told the AP in an interview published Monday that he is a progressive who shares the progressive world view of Stewart.


“AP: You have a much different background than Stewart. How will that affect the show?

“TN: One thing we both share: We are both progressives. Obviously where you’re from may inform a lot of your decisions. But traveling the world I’ve learned that progressives, regardless of their locations, think in a global space. And although I happen to be a guy who’s not from the same place that Jon’s from, I’ve lived in America for years before I went back out on the road, and I’ve learned to love the place. I’ll bring something different because I am different, but because it’s a team, it’ll be the same as well.”
