    Mandela did indeed unify South Africa starting on his inaugaration day: he invited all his white enemies who oppressed him and they occupied the front row seats in Union Buildings.

    ###CONGRATULATIONS to Trevor Noah for finally showing what type of person he really is in his latest promo commercials for his so-called show. He tells us we should “ROAST CORONAVIRUS SO HARD” He states coronavirus you got so many zits it looks like your exfoliating with pizza crust. Then. The coronavirus starts to cry and Trevor feels sorry for what he said to the coronavirus and says “ AHH, I FEEL BAD NOW” Unfortunately, this is not comedy. This is exactly how Trevor really feels about a Covid Virus that has Led to the following. HE FEELS BAD ABOUT OFFENDING CORONAVIRUS WITH THE BELOW ATROCITIES THAT HAVE OCCURRED TO ALL OF HUMANITY AND OUR FAMILIES A dramatic loss of human life worldwide. The economic and social disruption caused by the pandemic is devastating: tens of millions of people are at risk of falling into extreme poverty. The pandemic has decimated jobs and placed millions of livelihoods at risk. Nearly half of the world’s 3.3 billion global workforce are at risk of losing their livelihoods No income means no food. Border closures, trade restrictions and confinement measures have disrupted domestic and international food supply chains in which we all suffer. PLEASE WAKE UP AMERICA People like this who have a voice to millions of people worldwide should not have the ability to continue to have a platform as the LATE SHOW to spew his one-sided agenda to the masses. Trevor. As well as many other public figures in similar positions need to be held accountable for their one sided globalist views based on their beliefs and not be so closed minded that there are others who believe differently and that’s ok. That’s why we live in AMERICA and have law and a CONSTITUTION that our country was founded upon. Fortunately for Trevor. Since he is such a beloved character for the globalist agenda his past exploits were quickly squashed by the globalist in which he works for within BIG MEDIA. NOTE: A lot of people have not seen the real Trevor and have not forgot his past. Its funny that in such a CANCEL CULTURE we live in now he wasn’t cancelled long ago for his supposed offensive/hateful comments which were much more offensive than the majority of the unfortunate cancelled individuals of today. WHICH, by the way means anyone who speaks derogatory towards the left and their agenda who does not agree to their personal opinions. If you do. You are deemed a liar, conspiracy theorist, white supremacist or domestic terrorist. His show is supposed to be an Award-winning program that examines the day's biggest news stories in politics, pop culture, entertainment, sports and more. That description is the furthest from the truth. The show is simply about a puppet who is would be clinically deemed Self-Absorbed. Remember folks TREVOR SAYS YOU MUST TRUST SCIENCE. So, here is the clinical description of a Self-Absorbed person which is simply another term for a narcissistic personality. They are always on the defensive. They do not see the world from another person’s eyes. Anyone who opposes his views. They don’t see the big picture. A self-absorbed person thinks the world is just about them. They are imposing. They always think they are superior to others. They are so consumed by their own world and self-image They are extremely opinionated. They hide their insecurities behind a cloak of success. They devalue others. Constructive criticism is okay, but self-absorbed people always take criticism too far and use it as a weapon to allow them to devalue others. They can be arrogant. This is because they feel they are so important and better than every other person. A self-absorbed person can often be egotistical. They hide who they are. coming across as pretentious They are extremely selfish. They think they are great and the world out there is wrong. The previous is just one persons opinion as allowed for by the the Bill of Rights which are the first 10 Amendments to the Constitution. It spells out Americans' rights in relation to our government. It guarantees civil rights and liberties to the individual-like freedom of speech, press, and religion. NOTE: These rights should not be compromised no matter left or right when given a platform to promote ones-self and their personal beliefs. All issues should be equally presented and considered by all parties involved and not be suppressed/withheld as they are in todays society.

    It is sad that the one of the main opposition parties in South Africa, the EFF headed by Julius Malema has started a propaganda campaign to discredit Nelson Mandela and accusing him of having sold out to the white minority while they themselves together Jacob Zuma and some corrupt ANC officials have looted millions of the government money and rendered one of South Africa's only black owned prominent bank bankrupt to the extent that it closed down.

    Yea, the jab at blackmen will not go unnoticed. They just had ro usea fat black women to say, part of what doctor king lived for and accomplished was going arounding sleeping with women amd fooling his wife. Feminism will always be a right wing agenda. There are always racist subtweets these so called liberals throw at black men.

  • MrTMC94

    This is what I don't understand about 'equality'... This state propagandist can make jokes about white people being physically inferior to black people... but I can't make jokes about black people being behind on the alimony payments. Practice what you preach.

    Mandela was a supporter of the Palestinian struggle for freedom. So many of the things he is praised for now are happening in Palestine. Trevor, when will you speak out, unequivocally, in support of Palestinian human rights? Allies are needed to end the abuse.

    Stop the bs about MLK and ALLEGED affairs. Highly disrespectful. Funny how nothing was ever proven despite him being tapped the FBI and its leader desperately wanting to discredit him in any way and impact his legacy and undermine his then efforts. Yet and still, no verified evidence to this day..especially odd from an agency that had the POWER AND WILL to put out anything they wanted. Should make thinking people think. MLK’s legacy remains in tact.

    Trevor have you noticed that when your entertaining these white people they view your show up but the moment you start talking about black people your views drop drastically and the only people left watching them is black people and a couple of white people who have black in their families. Your viewers may not support Trump but they're just as racist as Trump but their worst Trevor because they're trying to hide it. at least Trump is out there with it. I admire you for trying to help us with this issue but I hate that these white people only listen to you when it's entertaining for them! Shame on all of you. Karma is real and you idiots just don't listen but I won't say you'll see and it's coming and the stuff that I normally say but I will say this you made your bed now lay in it... Because the truth will always come out you can't lie to God...

    I remember when Trevor first got the gig. I thought he wasn't very good. Stewart was the king. Noah showed some personality and ability to roll with it. Now look at this guy. He's the man. It's his show. Great for CC to stick with him. I wonder how long he will do it for. Even the "at home" daily clips are great... Can't wait till he's back in the studio. I still wish they could find the right show to air after. Once they lost Colbert it's been rough. I enjoyed Keppler . Oh well who knows what they are cooking up now

    Try Trump in a regular civilian court, before a regular civilian judge. Trump incited a mob to riot. Trump instigated an attempted overthrow of the US Government. There were fatalities and injuries resulting from those actions. He and his minions planned, led, and supported those actions. They acted at his behest and on his behalf, charge him as such.

    "... leaders in S. Africa were either in prison or exiled ..." Or dead. Whites were enraged with Jacob Zuma as President of S. Africa. What they conveniently forget is how many great men they killed. Stephen Bilko, may he rest in peace, was killed then his body burned. Police afterwards were having a BBQ nearby and laughed at how much his burning body smelled like BBQ.
