Trevor Noah Rips Trump for Pushing Conspiracy Theories from “Dr …


After criticizing irresponsible behavior from Americans around the country, including a widely condemned Chainsmokers concert in the Hamptons, Trevor Noah expressed a bit of sympathy to those who have intentionally defied public health and safety recommendations. “Obviously, ordinary Americans should be taking this pandemic more seriously,” the Daily Show host said on Tuesday night. “But in their defense, it’s hard to do that when this is the guy who’s setting the tone from the top.”

On Monday, President Donald Trump amplified a video that promoted numerous debunked false claims about the coronavirus, including that masks won’t prevent its spread and that hydroxychloroquine is an effective drug remedy for patients who are diagnosed with COVID-19. The misleading video, which prominently featured a woman named Dr. Stella Immanuel, was eventually pulled from Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook—but not before it was viewed millions of times and endorsed not just by the president, but by his son Donald Trump Jr., whose Twitter account was temporarily limited because he posted false information.

As for Immanuel: as The Daily Beast uncovered this week, the Houston doctor holds a number of dubious beliefs, including the idea that “alien DNA” is sometimes used to treat patients.

Sex is a spiritual transaction. So when you’re doing it by yourself, demons come and join you.” Immanuel said in sermon posted to YouTube in 2013. “When you’re doing it the right way in marriage, God watches over it.”

“Okay, both of those situations are not ideal,” said Noah on Tuesday. “Obviously I don’t want demons joining me in sex, but I also don’t want God watching me when I have sex.”

Turning his ire back to Trump, the host added, “Yes, despite having the world’s top doctors at his disposal, Trump has decided instead to trust a doctor who believes that people get sick because they masturbate and that vaccines are made from alien DNA.”

Since Trump amplified her profile, it has been reported that Immanuel immigrated to the U.S from Cameroon and received medical training in Nigeria. But Noah warned viewers against making any racist assumptions about her background. “And by the way, whatever you do, please don’t start running around saying that African doctors are crazy,” he said. “This doctor, who’s from Africa, happens to be crazy. You can’t use her to judge all African doctors, the same way you wouldn’t want the world to judge America’s presidents based on one guy, would you?”

Noah concluded his quick takedown by providing two options for Americans watching at home: “limit the spread of corona by following the science, or listen to the advice of internet randos like Dr. Demon Sperm.”

On The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon steered clear of mocking Immanuel and put the focus on Trump. “In 14 tweets, Trump undermined Dr. Fauci, dismissed face masks, and boasted about hydroxychloroquine working again,” Fallon said of the president’s Monday night on social media. “What is he doing? Even Flat Earthers think this guy is out of his mind.”
