That’s one way to put it.
The Daily Show host explained:
“You will come to find when there is a possibility of extinction, people tend to tune in. I feel sort of the same way a weatherman does when a tornado is on the horizon … Donald Trump is obviously a terrifying prospect to the world. [But] he’s confusing … Donald Trump is essentially a paradox. He is, on the one hand, terrifying, especially the idea of him being in control of the most powerful nation in the world. On the other hand, everyday we laugh.”
The comedian then repeated a comparison he’s used before on his late night show:
“I struggle with these emotions everyday. It’s almost as if there’s a giant asteroid headed to the earth, but it’s shaped like a penis. I think I’m going to die, but I know I’m going to laugh.”
At the end of the day, Trevor believes Trump is his own worst enemy:
“The only thing saving America is the resistance, and not resistance of the people, resistance of Donald Trump. I think he’s doing a fantastic job of obstructing himself and the Republicans. You cannot deny he’s only the greatest ally to Democrats and to people who are not for his agenda. It’s a strange world to be in, when you have to thank him for blocking him.”
And if the resistance works, America will be better and stronger for it:
“I think Donald Trump is going to be the stress test of America’s democracy. He’s going to expose all of those leaks. For a long time America has had a rickety house that hasn’t been renovated, and now the storm that is Trump is approaching and you’re going to see all of the leaks in the roof. If anything, that is the one bright side of Donald Trump ├óΓé¼ΓÇó is that if America survives him and if America is vigilant enough to respond to what they learn from Donald Trump, you can then realize everything you need to face within a democracy that’s based on a really solid foundation.”
RESIST RESIST RESIST!!
