Although The Daily Show covers Trump throughout their entire show, Trevor Noah was finally able to get his material right from the horse’s mouth. Kind of.
A Trump impersonator, Anthony Atamanuik, crashed The Daily Show to confront Trevor – or, as he referred to him, “Travis” – and his spreading of “fake news.”
“Yeah, but that’s the point,” Trevor says. “We’re a comedy show.”
But “Trump” pressed “Travis” for the unfair treatment.
“You’re really nasty to me. Totally unfair and I’m a nice guy. I’m one of the best guys. I’m the nicest. I’m nicely on top of bigly in an angel food cake.”
Of course, Trevor was not one to let a golden opportunity slip by. He pressed “Trump” on his tweet:
Eventually, but at a later date so we can get started early, Mexico will be paying, in some form, for the badly needed border wall.

Atamanuik, with a spot on impersonation, nailed Trump:
“Totally and completely easy. It’s not complicated at all. This is easy stuff, folks. Totally easy. We can tax them. They don’t have to pay with money. We can tax them. We can take … do you love the little Coca-Colas, Mexican Cokes, with the sugar in them? And Mexico’s beating us, they have the sugar in the Coke. They got the sugar in the Coke. We can do it. Little adobe huts. I don’t know, we’ll figure something out, O.K.? They’re killing us.”
Atamanuik’s satirical show, The President Show, will be premiering Thursday on Comedy Central. Finally, America will have a President worth watching.
