"Daily Show" host Trevor Noah had a lot of fun with reports that U.S. President Donald Trump had ordered the Pentagon the plan a military parade in Washington, D.C. 

"The marching orders were: I want a parade like the one in France," an anonymous military official told the Washington Post. The official, who spoke anonymously, said "This is being worked at the highest levels of the military."

“The world knows America has a military,” Noah said during a broadcast of "The Daily Show" on Wednesday night. "It’s in their countries right now.”

Noah offered an alternative to Trump however: “If you really want a parade, every time there’s a drone strike just fly another drone behind it playing marching music.”

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu suggested in 2016 that Israel should host military parades on Independence Day, a tradition that Israel stopped in 1973. He suggested a revival during a 2016 Independence Day ceremony while reminiscing about his childhood in Jerusalem.
