Trevor Noah thinks Donald Trump is the "Transformers" franchise of Washington, D.C., because he's seems to be immune to criticism.
After it was reported that Trump is considering firing Robert Mueller, the former FBI director who was appointed to lead the investigation into Russia's ties to the 2016 presidential election, reporters said that the move would surely be "political suicide," but the "Daily Show" star wasn't convinced on Tuesday's show.
"I think at some point we're going to have to stop saying Trump is committing political suicide," Noah said. "Donald Trump don't die, people. Donald Trump is the 'Transformers' movies of politics: No matter how bad it gets, it's never over. And you think you don't know anybody who supports them, but you do. You do."
Since the idea of Mueller being fired is just a rumor, Noah chose to focus more on things that were actually happening, like Attorney General Jeff Sessions's Senate testimony earlier that day.
In a segment titled "The D.C. Hobbit," Noah pointed out that Sessions had a hard time answering any of the questions that Senate presented him during the hearing.
"The recusal that Sessions mentioned was one of the key issues everyone wanted to know about: Did he speak to President Trump about Russia after he said he wouldn't?" Noah said, playing clips from the Senate hearing that showed Sessions stuttering throughout this questioning.
"So the question was simple, but if there's one thing we know about magical creatures, it's that if you ask them a question they don't like, they just make up rules for why they can't answer."
