Noah: Trump ‘the Second Candidate That’s Gone Far in U.S. Politics Yet Knows So Little’

‘It’s like the only thing Sarah Palin hates more than Obama is punctuation — nobody talks like that’

NOAH: "It turns out, a lot of the presidential candidates are in the same position as I am. I feel like every day I read something in the news and I go, huh, I didn't know that about the government. And at the same time Donald Trump is reading the same newspaper going huh, neither did I. We're like a study group. But Donald Trump is not the first American candidate to get so far in politics knowing so little. He's the second. And of course, like every version of an iPhone, you know the second one is better better but you still have to give props to the original. And Sarah Palin was the original. And yesterday America found the old cable, plugged it in, and guess what, it still works."

PALIN: "He's from the private sector, not a politician. Can I get a hallelujah?
AUDIENCE: "Hallelujah."
PALIN: "Where in the private sector you actually have to balance budgets in order to prioritize, to keep the main thing, the main thing. And he knows the main thing of president is to keep us safe economically and militarily. He knows the main thing. And he knows how to lead the charge. So troops, hang in there, because help's on the way because he, better than anyone, isn't he known for being able to command, fire!"

NOAH: "What? That is amazing! She's all over the place. Like it's not even human. It's like the only thing Sarah Palin hates more than Obama is punctuation. Nobody talks like that -- like it is almost like she's a malfunctioning robot, maybe, or the troops, or the commander, or boy, or it is like a bag of Scrabble tiles that grew a body and came to life. It's so random. And whatever she is, she is happy to be in front of a crowd. And if you are wondering, Trevor, what the hell is Sarah Palin doing back on stage? Well, you see, she has come back from the wilderness, or as Americans call it, Alaska, to endorse Donald Trump for president. And yes, I am here to endorse Sarah Palin endorsing Donald Trump for president. And you know, I lot of people were saying they couldn't wrap their brain around what she was saying, and that is a problem right there, people. With Sarah Palin, you don't think. You just enjoy."
