Late night T.V. host Trevor Noah has more time to put the news in comedic perspective for us. 

Comedy Central just announced on Monday (April 27) that it has temporarily expanded The Daily Show from 30 minutes to 45 minutes total running time.

As Deadline observed, Noah used that extra time to comment on President Donald Trump’s shocking remarks about injecting disinfectant directly into the body as a means of fighting the coronavirus.

In his hilarious monologue, Noah said that Trump “created shockwaves of stupidity with his latest and probably greatest unlicensed medical opinion yet,” adding that “this is maybe the first time in documented history that we’ve seen someone not thinking, out loud.”

Take a look at the segment for yourself:

This move by Comedy Central is the first time that the show has been given an extended format, according to Variety.

Currently, Noah is producing his popular program remotely without an audience while he self isolates at home.
