Colbert mocks Trump for comments on booing at National Football League game

Trevor Noah Says He Won't Be Shocked If Donald Trump Gets A Second Term

Colbert said during his late-night show that with all that's happening, people are "still talking about football". "Those players are protesting racial injustice". "That's the whole thing that they're protesting in the first place!" "You do realize the civil rights activists weren't sitting at the lunch counter for better grilled cheese".

"Wrong: kneeling during the national anthem has everything to do with race, just like your presidency", Colbert responded.

"Don't be shocked if Donald Trump gets a second term", Noah said at one point.

OMG, everyone is against Donald Trump on this one!

Noah concluded that because Trump called out Kaepernick "in a way that he never did to the Nazis in Charlottesville" that this had "everything to do with race". But the original message from the protests has been distorted by critics and allegedly whitewashed, which led Daily Show host Trevor Noah on Monday to figure out just when it's acceptable for Black people to peacefully protest. "I could say that with confidence". "That's the kind of shit they would do if they were trying to disrespect the country". Saying kneeling was a protest against the American flag, that's like saying Gandhi's hunger strikes were a protest against snacking. "If they wanted to disrespect the country, they wouldn't kneel silently".

And when Stevie Wonder takes a knee, "on his own time, in his own show", conservatives are also outraged-because it shows how "ungrateful" he is for his wealth.

"Really? That's the loudest booing you've ever heard?"

Noah's investigation turned up a telling pattern in white critics' arguments - that black players are "ungrateful". Because when a white billionaire spends a year screaming that America is a disaster, he's in touch with the country. But when a black man kneels quietly he should be grateful for the successes America has allowed him to have?

"It's wrong to do it in the streets, it's wrong to do it in the tweets".

"Wouldn't you love to see one of these National Football League owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say get that son of a bitch off the field right now". You can not do it if you've kneeled.

"Wow, son of a bitch?", Colbert said.

"You think black Americans are free from the worry of being shot by agents of the state?" asked Noah in disbelief.

In the end, Meyers landed on the same conclusion as Noah: "By now it should be clear to everyone who Trump is and what he represents. Out, he's fired!" Trump said.
