President Donald Trump’s unique brand of humor highlighted by The Daily Show

President Donald Trump has never been afraid of speaking his mind. His comments often cross the line, make people uncomfortable, and push the boundaries of what is socially acceptable. These would all be nice traits to have if he was a stand-up comedian. And now he is, thanks to The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.

President Trump’s rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma on June 20 dominated the headlines. Much of the attention went to the underwhelming crowd size, the president’s lengthy tangent on Rampgate, and his deflated appearance upon returning to the White House.

When it came to the substance of his speech, there was one moment in particular that stood out. President Trump indicated that he wanted to slow down COVID-19 testing because the numbers were getting too high and it looked bad for his administration.

The White House was quick to state that President Trump was only joking about slowing down testing. What exactly the punchline was or why the president would joke about a deadly pandemic was unclear. But it was not the first time President Trump’s comments have been explained away as humor or sarcasm. And after nearly four years in office, the president finally has enough material for his own special:

The Daily Show is making the best campaign ads against Donald Trump

To recap, the president has joked about testing for a pandemic that has killed over 120,000 Americans, police brutality, President Barack Obama founding ISIS, Russian election interference, and disinfectant as a treatment for COVID-19. That is a lot of edgy material for any stand-up comedian.

“Donald Trump: Never Not Joking” is another example of The Daily Show putting out some of the best videos to mock the president. Many feel like they could work as campaign ads like those being made famous by The Lincoln Project. But The Daily Show gets to approach these from a comedy perspective rather than the gravitas of legitimate political ads. However, the effect is the same and The Daily Show‘s creativity and cleverness are hard to beat right now.

The last time we saw something this good may have been when Trevor Noah and company imagined a world in which Fox News turned on President Trump. Every late night show uses President Trump and his allies’ words against him. The Daily Show has figured out the best way to package it all together with a common thread and perfectly design it to be shared on social media.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with the president having a sense of humor. Many voters would prefer a candidate that did. But any decent comic/person knows the importance of timing. The Daily Show reminds its audience that President Trump has yet to figure out the right time to be joking.
