‘Daily Show’ Host Trevor Noah Takes Mike Bloomberg to Task for Stop-and-Frisk

Just as Mike Bloomberg is starting to get traction with African-American voters, Trevor Noah has turned his attention to the former New York City mayor and what could end up being the biggest roadblock in his attempt to win over the Democratic primary.

After briefly touching on the big Twitter fight that dominated headlines on Thursday, the Daily Show host said that right now Donald Trump’s taunts are “the least of Mike Bloomberg’s problems” while “the real threat to Bloomberg’s campaign is his past.”

Noah was of course referring to a series of recently unearthed audio and video clips in which Bloomberg defends the controversial police tactic of “stop-and-frisk,” even going so far as to say that it was meant to target minorities.

“Wow, that is not a good look,” the host said in response. “While Bloomberg is out there trying to win the black vote in 2020, he’s on tape in 2015 talking about black people like they’re crime piñatas.” Noah predicted the comments would “definitely hurt” the candidate with black voters “the same way you would lose white voters if a tape came out of you saying that pets aren’t the same as babies.”
