"The Daily Show's" Trevor Noah roasted Donald Trump Jr. for his "Batshit crazy" defense of his now highly publicized and controversial meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya. Trump Jr., just as the New York Times published a story relating the contents of emails that led to the meeting, took to Twitter and tweeted out those emails himself, along with a bizarre defense of the meeting.
“That’s right. Don Jr., Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort met with a Kremlin-linked Russian lawyer to get dirt on Hillary Clinton,” Noah said. “You know what? At this point, it would be easier if the Trump people just told us which Russians they haven’t met with.”
“Now, if you’re looking for evidence of collusion between Trump and Russia, this seems like the smoking gun... Trump Jr. has a different take,” Noah joked.

“Baby, baby, baby, you don’t understand,” Noah said, imitating Trump Jr. “I only met with that other woman because I thought she wanted to fuck.”
“It is insane! That is batshit crazy,” the host claimed. “Donald Jr.’s defense is that he tried to collude? But instead he got Russian catfished?!”
