On “The Daily Show” Wednesday night, host Trevor Noah was the first of all late-night comics to sink his teeth into Donald Trump’s Jerusalem announcement – not about the controversial content, but about the president’s slurred delivery.
As disturbing as the announcement had been, “it was even more disturbing to watch the conflict between Donald Trump’s teeth and his tongue,” Noah began.
“What the hell is going on there?” Noah wondered after playing the clip of Trump slurring “United States” and other words. “It’s like someone hit him with a blow dart just before he went out to make the speech. …It sounds like he just had a drink with Bill Cosby.”
“We all know what’s going on here; President Trump is wearing dentures, people,” Noah continued, explaining he’s seen this type of dental malfunction before on his own grandfather. “His dentures started falling out and he wouldn’t be able to finish a sentence. Have you ever seen Trump eat an apple, a pear, or fruit or vegetable of any kind?”
While insisting there is no shame in wearing dentures, Noah said there is shame in Trump having dentures, because “he’s vain as hell.”
Noah then suggested that people NOT start using the hashtag #DentureDonald.
“Can you imagine how Trump would feel if people started tweeting #DentureDonald?” Noah warned. “Don’t do it!” he told viewers. “I’m just saying, ‘Can you imagine?’”
