If White House were Applebee's, 'I’d think twice about eating there': Trevor Noah
(NEW YORK) — Trevor Noah took fresh jabs at President Donald Trump on Tuesday after the commander in chief’s top economic adviser resigned, joining a long list of White House staffers who have called it quits.
“You know, right now, the White House has lost so many people — like every week somebody’s leaving,” said Noah, host of “The Daily Show.” “If an Applebee’s lost as many people I’d think twice about eating there. I’d be like, something’s going on!”
He also took a few swipes at the president’s chief of staff, John Kelly, and Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who lost his top-secret security clearance last week as part of a West Wing overhaul.
“I think at this point, the White House staff is just John Kelly and a fax machine that Jared isn’t allowed to use,” Noah joked.
Trump’s chief economic adviser, Gary Cohn, announced his resignation on Tuesday after losing a high-profile battle over tariffs the president intends to impose on steel and aluminum imports.
His departure, the sixth high-level adviser to quit this year, came just days after White House Communications Director Hope Hicks announced her exit.
