If the 2016 election was a work of fiction, no one would believe it. But Trevor Noah sees elements of the campaign that are straight out of Shakespeare.
Noah was even more convinced after the computer of former congressman and admitted sexter Anthony Weiner became ― potentially ― a key piece of evidence in Hillary Clinton’s’s email scandal.
“It’s crazy, but Shakespearean,” Noah said on “The Daily Show” on Tuesday. “Hillary survives Bill’s sex scandal, but now gets a scandal from her top aide’s husband ― and it was Bill who married them.
“Not to mention that [Donald] Trump got his sex scandal from Billy Bush, whose uncle [George H.W. Bush] was defeated by Hillary Clinton’s husband before Donald Trump later defeated his cousin, Jeb. There’s only like 15 characters in the entire story.”
