Trevor Noah Brilliantly Blasts Jeb Bush and Fox News’ Gross Comments on Superheroes

Last night on The Daily Show, Trevor Noah took Jeb Bush and Fox News to task for their recent attempts at “diving into” comic book culture. First on Noah’s list were Bush’s comments on CBS’ Supergirl, Melissa Benoist. When asked who his favorite superhero was, he said Supergirl because “she’s kind of hot.” Gross.

He moves on to talking about Fox News’ attempted takedown of Captain America: Sam Wilson #1, which has Sam Wilson as Cap taking on an armed militia called the Sons of the Serpent who aim to “protect” America’s borders by “disappearing” immigrants. Who do you think Fox News sided with? I’ll give you one guess. Hint: it wasn’t Cap.

Noah brilliantly takes down Bush and Fox News, so definitely give the video a look-see.
