Trevor Noah to Trump: Remember When You Called David Duke a Racist on TV?

‘The irony is I think there are a lot of Republicans saying that now too’

NOAH: "So Donald Trump isn't bothered by retweeting a quote from the man who invented fascism, but how about endorsing a key feature of fascism itself. In America if you are generous you are protected from getting sued by politicians for reporting on them and in that spirit, the house of Trump presents the next look -- media censorship.
TRUMP [video]: "One of the things I'll go fog do if I win, I'm going to open up our libel laws so when they write purposefully negative and horrible and false articles we can sue them and win lots of money. We're going to open up those libel laws."
NOAH: "Now this is especially concerning because if this man had his way with libel laws, then the media would never be able to report on President Trump's shady business dealings or his dubious policies, or the fact that he wants to bang his daughter. Oh don't forget. Donald Trump wants to bang his daughter. So with that said, it's now on to our final  and most daring look from the house of Trump. An edgy twist on the classic white sheet as worn by former Ku Klux Klan clan grand wizard David Duke recently who told his followers to vote for Donald Trump."

TAPPER: "Will  you unequivocally condemn David Duke and say you don't want his vote or that of other white supremacists?"
TRUMP: "Just so you understand, I don't know anything about David Duke, okay. I don't know anything about what you are even talking about with white supremacy or white supremacists."
TAPPER: "Would you just say unequivocally you condemn them and you don't want their support?"
TRUMP: "Well, I have to look at the group. I mean I don't know what group you are talking about."
TAPPER: "Okay, I'm just talking about David Duke and the Ku Klux Klan here."
TRUMP: "I don't know-- honestly, I don't know David duke. I don't believe I've ever met him. I'm pretty sure I didn't meet him and I just don't know anything about him.:

NOAH: "I'm going to give props to Jake Tapper, did you see him holding himself-- okay, I'm just talking about the Ku Klux Klan and-- and you know he's going -- I can't believe this is even my job. How am I having to say this to a candidate? And also, Trump needs to find out more about the KKK? Really? The KKK? Like Trump is there going I mean sure, that could stand for anything like I don't know, Kool Kids Klub, I don't know, I don't know. Who am I to turn down the support of cool kids. Oh, and by the way, Donald Trump, we know you know who David Duke is. From that time you were on TV."

LAUER: "What do you see as the biggest problem with the reform party right now?"
TRUMP: "Well, you've got David Duke just joined, a bigot, a racist, a problem. This is not exactly the people you want in your party."
[end video]
NOAH: "This is not exactly the people I want in your party. Yeah. The irony is I think there are a lot of Republicans saying that now too. We'll be right back."
