    Although I'm a fan of Trevor as a person and a stand up comedian, I'm really disliking the daily show. I feel like it's now ALL about identity politics... most of the time he seems to take it there. With the guests as well, it always seems to go there. I also feel like the show was more "grown up" with John Stewart, if that makes any sense. It was more sophisticated. I think Trevor is incredibly smart, but on the show his humor is just too stupid most of the time

    Trevor your family as you well know is a blessing to you! As a mother, you live in fear for your children everyday. You always feel there are things you can do or could have done better. No matter what. ... I do applaud your mother, it's one thing to be a strong woman. It takes more to be a strong mother. From your words, your mother is both! I pray she knows, my friend 😇

    Thanks Trevor for transforming comedy from the usual Americans swearing 🤬 and insults. Yours is like telling a story with humour and clean jokes. I can attend your show with my 10year daughter without being worried of her hearing some vulgar language ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

    I would like to acknowledge all of the comments here which so thoughtfully and engagingly express the positive attributes of the video, the host, and Trevor Noah. I try to avoid comments generally, they so often degenerate to show our basest natures. Bravo to everyone here, keeping it honest and positive! Restores a bit of my faith in humanity!

    I'm concerned about the way art - a book - gets to become the feature when it's well-done as apposed to the original issue: childhood abuse, injustice. I'd really like to see a $5. or 10 minute action every person can take when reading something like this or any other news story so that it is not a ritual in dissociative desensitization. For media to be relevant we need to take action in response to it that changes the underlying reality.

    I just think Trump needs a psychiatrist. One moment he calls Mexicans rapists and two sentences later, he says they are wonderful hard working people, he employs a lot of themand knows they are wonderful and I think, he has ideas his parents entertained or he learnt when he was young and the ones he has learnt later and he has not tidied up his house and realised that he is holding two opinions at the same time a thing we all do but he does it to a greater degree than most and a thing psychiatrists tidy up on. That awful woman Merkal looked happy with him! He does awful things and still I feel some warmth towards him. I dont understand it. I need a psychiatrist too.

    Are the directors of the daily show brilliant brilliant at getting the best and funniest out of people? Colberts special capacities were used brilliantly while he was affiliated to the daily show or in it and jon stewart was also more varied and interesting, is it the people who direct you we ought to be talking to as well as your wonderful selves. In The Late Show, Colberts special abilities, his surreal used of strange characters, which gets him to give a specially rich and varied response toa situation, his surreal use of masksshitting though everyone was whatching, scared of being seen or smelt vunerable and extremely emotionally needy, has been made nothing and he does not seem to be very good at criticising people under the guise of a responsible gooddy, goody, such a person for Colbert seems to be a whole lot blander and stupider than is useful for a pundit. As an actor of less stiff characters, he Is capable of having an interesting response or varied and rich one. A teacher of mine said, some actors need to be told exactly what to do, look up, look down, etc., let one tear come from your eye and others need to understand all about the character and their situation and emotions, Colbert has not been given enough information on his new character for him to go on in an interesting way.

    In Spain ,everytime a woman is killed by their partner it makes the news!,The murder count in SPain is very low, less than one person per hundred thousand ,less than in England,and much less than in the USA. It is great that they publish these numbers in other countries people are pretty uncounscious of how many women are killed by their partners.

    Apartate/Racism: Not only used it divisiveness to oppress the opposing ethicities but they imprisoned themselves without understanding how the cosmic elements played a grand scheme at their treacherous directorship. Caucasians that share the same idea of oppression are not just the oppressors but they are oppressed themselves. Thank God all is not the same. Self examination is required FOR human-being. You will reap what you've sown... And general by your own that will gather that harvest.

    Why is he giggling as Trevor is talking about how his family (most folks of color on the globe)talks of god/Jesus being white and favoring whites??? What type of impression do you think accepting who you think is the most high not only being in your reflection but preferring those that are? Although Trevor may now recognize how silly that is most folks in the world don’t. It sucks. Last I checked the Bible works best for those from Europe yet he wasn’t from or a European. History books and pictures were adapted a adjusted to fit a certain narrative to enforce what people in God’s grace look like and the ones who don’t look like. It makes it a lot easier to conquer lands and created psychological problems for those non white people.
