Trevor Noah also noticed the looks Ivanka Trump was giving Prime Minister Justin Trudeau when he met with President Donald Trump this week.
“The Daily Show” host called her out for looking adoringly at Trudeau in some of the pictures, saying she clearly noticed that Canada’s PM is the finest world leader.
“Just look at these looks that she’s giving him,” Noah joked, while showing the pictures to his audience during the show. “Can you zoom into her eyes? Look at that. You can feel it. Damn. She looks like she’s ready to risk it all. She looks like she’s considering dressing up as a Syrian refugee just so Canada will take her in, like, ‘Let me in, Justin,'” he said.
And then Noah went in on her tweet in which she posted a photo with Trump and Trudeau while sitting at the desk in the Oval Office. Trump tweeted the picture with the caption: “A great discussion with two world leaders about the importance of women having a seat at the table.”
“Oh, I’m sorry, that photo shows the importance of women having a seat at the table? Your dad let you sit at his desk,” Noah began. “That’s not a woman in power, it’s take your daughter to work day. No I mean, don’t get me wrong, it’s a lovely Instagram photo. I think she probably used the ‘nepotism’ filter, #WokeUpLikeThisWithARichDad,” he said of the photo.
Noah continued to skewer Trump’s daughter: “And what makes this really annoying is 3 million more Americans wanted a woman sitting behind that desk full-time, not just for the photo op,” Noah said, referencing Hillary Clinton winning the popular vote over Trump by nearly 3 million.
