Trevor Noah praised Republican and Democrats Wednesday night for their response to the Congressional baseball practice shooting in Virginia earlier in the day, but called out at least one politician who didn't seem to get the memo about the appropriate bipartisan response.
“We have to take a moment to acknowledge what happened this morning in Virginia,” Noah said on "The Daily Show" while addressing the attack that left Republican Congressman Steve Scalise injured. “A man armed with a rifle shot five people, including Republican Congressmen Steve Scalise. Were it not for the Capitol Police on the scene, the situation could have been much worse. And, for me personally, what was heartwarming to see today, was members of Congress united as human beings.”
Noah then played clips from Republicans and Democrats like Nancy Pelosi and Paul Ryan who commented on the situation in Virginia.
"I won't lie,” he said. “Watching all of those Congress people speak like that really made me hopeful. And I'm glad they found what was the right way to respond. So kudos to all of them."
"Oh, and if you want to know how not to respond, it's like this," Noah said, directing his attention to Newt Gingrich who spent his time on Fox News accusing the left for the "increased hostility," pointing to other moments that he equated to be as bad shooting, like Kathy Griffin's beheaded Trump photos.
