Trevor Noah Points Out ‘Bright Side’ Of Ronald Reagan’s Racism For Donald Trump

Trevor Noah on Thursday said late President Ronald Reagan “officially has a racist asterisk next to his name” after audio resurfaced in which he called United Nations delegates from African countries “monkeys.”

The then-GOP governor of California made the racist comment during a 1971 telephone call with then-President Richard Nixon.

Noah, the host of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” said it was “disturbing” to note how America has a history of racist presidents.

“But look on the bright side,” he added. “It also means Donald Trump is more presidential than we thought.”
