During a recent episode, Trevor reenacted Kanye’s Big Boy interview where the rapper talked about black people being brainwashed by the Democratic Party. Trevor stated his first response was, “Are you sh*tting me?” The Daily Show host said that he didn’t necessarily disagree with all that Kanye was saying, but “You, as Kanye West, are gonna talk sh*t about other rappers talking about buying [foreign cars]? You, as Kanye West?” He then recited Kanye’s “Clique” verse: “I know Spike Lee’s gon’ kill me but let me finish” and “I rather buy 80 gold chains and go ig’nant.

Trevor added, “Are you serious? ‘You’re such a f*ckin’ hoe I love it‘? That Kanye West is gonna talk sh*t about rappers f*ckin’ b*tches? C’mon, man.” He then said that he believes that everyone can have their own opinion, but he doesn’t like it when people claim that black Americans have been brainwashed by Democratics into living in a mentality of victimhood.

“So, let me get this straight. So, you’re saying every black person in America is brainwashed?…Seventy, eighty, ninety percent of black people in America that are voting Democrat, they’re brainwashed.” He argues against Kanye’s statement and teases the rapper for being the only enlightened black person who realizes that the Republican Party is an option. He also named the one demographic in America who he believes could never be brainwashed, and lists his reasons why. Check out Trevor Noah’s commentary below.
