Noah can't believe Santorum tried to argue that kids scared of gun violence need to solve this problem on their own.

While Trevor Noah and much of the free world was moved by the March for Our Lives protest against gun violence in America over the weekend, not everyone was impressed that a group of high school students could spark a national movement. Rick Santorum certainly seemed to think it was awful.

The former senator went on CNN to say, "How about kids, instead of looking to someone else to solve their problem, do something about maybe taking CPR classes or try to deal with situations where there is a violent shooter where you can actually respond to that."

"Clearly people like Rick Santorum think that kids should be shot and not heard," Noah said after seeing this.

When it was suggested to Santorum that this march is these kids doing something, urging Congress to pass legislation, Santorum retorted, "Yeah, they took action to ask someone to pass a law. They didn’t take action to say how do I, as an individual, deal with this problem."

Noah couldn't believe that Santorum was actually trying to delegitimize the march like this. "According to former U.S. senator Rick Santorum, citizens asking their lawmakers to make a law is just them passing the buck," he said. "What kind of logic is that?"

He then applied that same logic to another system in place where citizens look to others to solve problems for them. "He would make one hell of a 911 operator," Noah said of Santorum.

"911. What? There’s an intruder in your house? Well how about you try getting him out, instead of asking the police to solve all of your crimes, OK?"
