Trevor Noah: Trump Is Rigging The Election Against Himself

"The media is not rigged against you. They're just recording what you say, and playing it back."

Donald Trump may actually be right that the election is rigged. But comedian Trevor Noah says he’s wrong about who’s doing the rigging.

Trump keeps blaming the “crooked media” for his sagging polls, but Noah, on Monday’s “The Daily Show” suggested Trump is responsible for his own downfall.

“The media is not rigged against you. They’re just recording what you say, and playing it back,” Noah said. “If anything, you’re rigging your own campaign.”

Noah wondered if it’s possible Trump is simply unable to see that he’s his own worst enemy.

“Does Trump not realize he’s the one on TV saying the things that make him look bad?” Noah said. “Maybe he watches TV and says, ‘Who’s that guy? He makes me look like shit!’” 

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
