Host of the "Daily Show," Trevor Noah, ripped into President Donald Trump's double standard in responding to deadly terror attacks in the United States. Noah pointed out that when it comes to terror committed by Neo-Nazis, Trump is oddly silent and willing to give them the benifit of the doubt, but when its an attack committed by a Muslim he wants to change American immigration laws and attacks Democrats.

“So when it was a Nazi, Trump needed more facts,” Noah said. “When it was a Muslim, that was the only fact he needed.” Other than being a “fundamentally dishonest person,” Noah ripped into Trump for taking his facts exclusively from Fox News, which applies the same double standard.

“Clearly for Fox, you can politicize things as long as it’s not guns. It’s as simple as that,” Noah said. “I think tragedies like what happened in Vegas and New York City should be politicized,” he added. “Yeah, I said it. Because politics is how society works to solve problems.”
