Every time I think Ive reached the highest level of disgust with this administration, Im right, but then they invent another level, Trevor Noah said Thursday night.
The Daily Show host was referring to the news that for months, high-level Trump officials reportedly knew that White House Staff Secretary Rob Porter had been accused by two of his ex-wives of domestic abuse. Porter resigned this week against the urging of Chief of Staff John Kelly.
I miss the days when White House staffers were fired for fun stuff, Noah said. Spicey couldnt talk, the Mooch couldnt shut up, Steve Bannon couldnt shower.
But Im sorry, this story hits me hard, he continued. Because, not only did the White House have a domestic abuser in its midst. A lot of the people there, especially chief of staff and alleged adult in the room John Kelly just ignored it for months.
Noah also said that given the parameters of Porters job, theres no reason they couldnt have gotten someone else to do it. Specifically, he cited a report that said Porter was in charge of every piece of paper that lands on the presidents desk.
You mean this desk? Noah asked, showing a photo of Trumps empty workspace. Tough job. Trumps desk is balder than his head, people.
