You know things are bad for Democrats when two notoriously liberal late-night talk show hosts start throwing former President Trump’s name around, only this time, they sound a bit nostalgic.
But as inflation soars, gas prices shock the senses, and average Americans start wondering if they are soon going to have to choose between scaling back meals and heating their homes, that’s how Trevor Noah and Bill Maher are sounding to many as they dare to criticize President Joe Biden’s lack of strength, lack of leadership, and lack of common sense.
Okay, so they didn’t say that directly, but both comedians certainly implied it in their recent monologues.
Biden’s painfully-failed pleas to convince Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E) to produce more oil to compensate for the administration’s ban on Russian imports were widely reported in the mainstream, mostly liberal press, illustrating just how little respect Biden appears to have on the global stage.
“Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and the UAE’s Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al Nahyan both declined U.S. requests to speak to Mr. Biden in recent weeks, the officials said, as Saudi and Emirati officials have become more vocal in recent weeks in their criticism of American policy in the Gulf,” the Wall Street Journal wrote last week.
The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah says they would have run for the phone had it been former President Donald Trump doing the calling.
“There is no denying that Saudi Arabia isn’t playing ball with Joe Biden,” Noah stated. “And you know what? You can say what you want, but this would have never happened to Donald Trump. Never.”
“No one was ever ignoring Donald Trump’s calls, because if you ignored Donald Trump’s calls, you didn’t know how he would respond,” Noah continued. “Maybe he’d send an angry tweet, or maybe he’d just ban your country from everything. You don’t know.”
And perhaps, Noah surmised, Biden could use some of that “stable genius” instability right about now.
“That’s why I bet, in these situations, Biden actually wishes that he could hire Trump to step in as President Wildcard,” Noah stated. “You know, just keep everyone on their toes. Because if Trump is calling, you’d best believe you’d be racing to pick up the phone.”
He then imagined a scenario in which Trump bombs the UAE and the UFC (“just in case”) for making him wait two rings before picking up.

So, it’s not that Noah likes Trump, but it may be that he likes Biden’s tortuous timidity just a little less.
The same can be said of “Real Time” host Bill Maher, who, in one breath stated that Donald Trump was the “worst president ever,” and in the next noted that Putin didn’t invade Ukraine under Trump’s watch.
“If Putin thought Trump was really that supportive of him, why didn’t he invade when Trump was in office?” Maher asked. “It’s at least worth asking that question if you’re not locked into one, intransigent thought.”
For Maher, the biggest problem in today’s conflict-ridden world is that everyone wants to make everything about themselves, and the Russia-Ukraine war is no exception.
“Finally, a new rule,” Maher stated at the start of the segment. “Don’t make World War III all about you.”
“Watching the reactions to war in Ukraine these past few weeks, it’s become obvious that America in this age suffers acutely from a particular disease of the mind, which is: everything proves what we already believed, and everything goes back to the thing we already hate,” he said.
“Ukraine is not mostly about your pet grievances,” Maher concluded after highlighting a list of both Republicans and Democrats who have attempted to make it about exactly that. “It’s about Vladimir Putin he reminded viewers, “and Putin is bad. Very, very, very bad.”
