South African-born comedian Trevor Noah is trending on Twitter after he slammed US President Joe Biden and subtly praised former US President Donald Trump – on an episode of The Daily Show on 12 March. 


Trevor Noah expressed frustration over Wall Street Journal’s report –  US President Joe Biden’s calls to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) – seeking support for Ukraine and help with surging US gas prices – were rejected.

The comedian expressed his shock at the claim that Saudi Arabia and the UAE would not answer Biden’s calls.

“You have got to be kidding me. Apparently, Saudi Arabia won’t even pick up the phone for the president of the United States,” he said. 

“I mean, look, I know it’s hard to arrange those calls. You know, Riyadh is eight hours ahead, Biden is asleep by 4 p.m., it’s a narrow window to make it work, but still: That must have been really embarrassing for Biden. Can you imagine? He phones them and they don’t pick up?” he continued.

The comedian went on to say that the White House denies that Biden’s calls were rejected but this would never have happened to Trump.

“Now, according to the White House, this story is totally untrue. They deny it, which I would too. But either way, man, there is no denying that Saudi Arabia isn’t playing ball with Joe Biden. And you know what? You can say what you want, but this would have never happened to Donald Trump. Never,” he went on to say. 

He explained that no one would ignored Trump’s calls because no one knew how he would respond to that.

“No one was ever ignoring Donald Trump’s calls. ‘Cause if you ignored Donald Trump’s calls, you didn’t know how he would respond. Maybe he’d send an angry tweet, or maybe he’d just, like, ban your country from everything. You don’t know,” he continued.

“That’s why I bet, in these situations, Biden actually wishes that he could hire Trump to step in as ‘President Wild Card.’ You know, just keep everyone on their toes. ‘Cause if Trump was calling, you best believe the UAE, they’d be racing to pick up the phone,” he added.
