‘Daily Show’ Host Trevor Noah Tears Into Police for Being No Better Than Gangs

‘Daily Show’ Host Trevor Noah Tears Into Police for Being No Better Than Gangs

It’s been 10 days since Trevor Noah delivered a sobering 18-minute monologue on the police killing of George Floyd that quickly racked up tens of millions of views across various social platforms and helped change the conversation about the “social contract” between black people and cops. 

After taking last week off, he was back hosting The Daily Show from home Monday night and the story has only become bigger. 

“Never before in American history has there been an uprising like this, exactly like this, where you have huge numbers of people coming out every single day, in every single state in the country,” Noah began, spending the first segment of his special hour-long broadcast on the massive protest movement. But after a break, he turned his attention back to the police.

“With all these protests sweeping across America, people have been comparing this moment to the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s,” the host said. “And much like the 1960s, law enforcement officers have met these calls to end police brutality with even more police brutality.”
