Trevor Noah thinks that Donald Trump reportedly sharing classified information with the Russians in a White House meeting on Monday is proof that aliens aren't visiting us from a galaxy far, far away.
Or at least proof that the U.S. government doesn't know anything about them if they are.
"I will say this, though, people: At least now we know there's no aliens, because if there were, Donald Trump would have told us by now," Noah joked. "So, the good news is, Trump listens during intel briefings. And the bad news is, Trump listens during intel briefings."
The "Daily Show" host mocked President Trump on Monday night for the "suspicious" meeting with the Russian foreign minister and ambassador. Sources told the Washington Post that Trump allegedly bragged to his guests about his intel on ISIS. "I get great intel. I have people brief me on great intel every day,” Trump reportedly said before going on to reveal “aspects of the threat that the United States learned only through the espionage capabilities of a key partner."
"I knew something was up when we saw President Trump up with the Russians -- and they were smiling," Noah said. There are only two times a Russian man smiles: the day he dies, and this."
"I mean, once again, this sounds like a story that we would invent, right?” Noah said. "Trump invites the Russians into the Oval Office and then during his meeting starts bragging, 'I get great intel. I have people brief me on great intel every day,' and then proceeds to give them the intel. He probably doesn’t even know what 'intel' is short for. 'My intelivision is the best. It gets the highest ratings! The best ratings of all.'"
"What’s really sad about this is that Donald Trump is trying to impress the Russians with the fact that he’s president," Noah said. "They know! The guy’s there like, 'Yeah, do you guys know that I’m president?' and they’re like, 'Yes, that is how we planned it. Of course.'"
Noah went on to say POTUS is making it so painfully easy for the Russians to get into the White House and be told classified information, that even Vladamir Putin is probably confused.
"Right now, if I were Putin back in Moscow I'd be like, 'This is trap, no? No, it has to be. It can't be this easy, come on,'" Noah joked.
