Trevor Noah disses JZ on The Daily Show, about more than Nkandla

South Africa’s most famous export to the US, His Excellency Trevor Noah did a segment on President Jacob Zuma on The Daily Show, so we can now hope that a few more Americans know who the president of South Africa is. Alas, Noah’s skit was not for the purposes of American education.


Not everyone was beaming with pride at Trevor Noah’s Zuma skit. And rightly so. For one, the bit about Zuma’s difficulty reading numbers is crass. But then this is Trevor Noah after all. And haven’t we been having this joke for a while now?

Was Trevor too much this time? Watch it and decide for yourself.
