After firing the man leading an investigation into Trump campaign's ties with Russia during the 2016 Presidential Election, POTUS met with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in the Oval Office just hours later.
"All of this madness is happening because of the Trump campaign's possible ties to Russia: firings, hearings, refusals, emails about Borscht recipes—all because of Russia. So, if you were Donald Trump right now, what's the one thing you would stay away from?”
But it wasn't just a meeting with any ole Russian leaders, the meeting with Kislyak was particularly shady because he was "the specific guy who got Michael Flynn fired and made Jeff Sessions have to recuse himself from the Russia investigation," Noah said.
"If there's one person you don't want any more ties to, it's this guy. He is the kiss of death. But as we all know, no one tells Donald Trump who he can kiss."
While many Americans were still baffled over firing of Comey, Noah said that America is not of concern to Donald Trump because he "answers to a higher power." Of course, speaking of Vladamir Putin.
"You know, it's starting to feel less like Putin's blackmailing Trump, and more like he has Trump hypnotized," Noah said. "And Donald Trump might be crazy, but it turns out he's not stupid. He knew that this would look bad, so he didn't allow any American journalists into the room: no photos, no documentation, no pics. So it didn't happen, right? There's just one little problem."
Another important detail of the meeting between Trump and the Russians was that no US media outlets were allowed into the Oval Office during the session, the only media that was present was a Russian news photographer who ended up sharing the photos online after the meeting, which made already confused Americans even more concerned about why Trump was shaking hands with Lavrov in the Oval.
Noah played a clip of a White House official on CNN saying. "They tricked us...That's the problem with the Russians—they lie."
"Wow! The Russians lied?! Oh, bless your soul, Trump. I can't believe how innocent Trump's people are: The Russians lied to us! When has that ever happened before? They said they wouldn't take the pictures, but they did! How are you shocked that they lied?" Noah said. "Was Trump standing there like, 'Sergei! Why did you release those pictures? You even pinky swore!' 'Oh, I thought that was just one of your normal fingers.'"
"I'm sorry, like, Russia is owning Donald Trump so hard right now, it's embarrassing," Noah concluded. "It's like watching the Harlem Globetrotters: did he have to dunk on him and pull his pants down, man?"
