A pissed-off Trevor Noah opens a can of whoop-ass on the Iowa GOP and its beautiful
Daily Show host Trevor Noah lit into Iowa Republicans on Tuesday for denying the show access to their event featuring several GOP presidential candidates.
You dont want people making fun of your terrible candidates and your ridiculous event, Noah said to state party chair Jeff Kaufmann. As far as Im concerned, the Iowa GOP can suck its own caucus.
As the Des Moines Register reported, Kaufmanns group shut Noahs show out of the Growth and Opportunity Party over the weekend, saying that he was afraid the program would ridicule Iowa itself.
I bet weve got 10 or 15 Democrat-oriented blogs, liberal blogs, Kaufmann argued. But anybody that I think is going to make fun of Iowa theyre unwelcome.
Noah noted that without being able to put correspondent Jordan Klepper at the scene, it would have been hard to make fun of the events Halloween theme, which included a scarecrow made up to look like Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
Guys, if you wanted a fake, empty Hillary Clinton, you couldve just used Carly Fiorina, he quipped.
At the same time, Noah said, his problem was not with Iowans.
Its with its bloated role in the American election, he argued. I dont understand, especially because Iowas Republican caucus stopped mattering years ago. It in no way determines the partys nominee, let alone the general election winner. And if you dont believe me, just ask the last two winners: not-President Mike Huckabee and even-less President Rick Santorum.
