In his recap of Monday night’s Democratic National Convention opener, Trevor Noah praised former first lady Michelle Obama for bringing down the house and reviewed some of the flak she received from one particular critic.
Obama’s much-lauded speech took aim at President Donald Trump for sowing chaos and division and failing to lead with empathy. She said Trump was in over his head and urged voters to elect former Vice President Joe Biden in November.
The president hit back at Obama in a series of outraged tweets and in remarks at the White House on Tuesday.
“Well she’s in over her head, and frankly, she should’ve made the speech live, which she didn’t do,” Trump said. “She taped it. And it was not only taped, it was taped a long time ago, because she had the wrong deaths.”
As Trump pointed out, Obama said more than 150,000 people had died from COVID-19 in the U.S. The most recent numbers show that figure sits at well over 170,000.
“My God, that is one of the biggest self owns I have ever seen! ’150,000 deaths? I’ve killed 20,000 more since then, you idiot!’” Noah said Tuesday night.
