  • Disappointed in you can u make fun of such an honorable know what’s up come on now

  • Julian Assange is the closest thing to a hero...he embodies the courage of truth..never popular with teeny weeney ball- less cowards...shame on the world

  • you probably don't know who you are talking about Trevor! He is a multi-awarded top journalist, admired and someone to look up to, not the kind of those you make fun of in the Fox news! He has revealed the truth about issues that concern us and threaten our lives, he revealed truths like the one that talks about the info they get from us through social media, that's why the governments chase him, how about you? what if they expose your dirty laundry those you take the side of this time? and you make jokes about the appearance of someone whose whole life was dedicated to people's benefits? you chose the wrong side this time. This show was a disgrace.

  • Fuck him

  • Crap

  • Dude fuck you and your Zionist piece of shit puppet life and show and country. Fuck your Zionist plague of an excuse mother.

  • Trevor, I used to laugh at some of your skits; but after viewing this skit on the arrest of Julian Assange, the only thing that came to mind was, “Jy! Son of Patricia, jy behoort jou te skaam! The gravity of the event has obviously eluded you.

  • tREVOR: You've had many distasteful jokes twisting the truth to fit your Democratic/Clintons/Obama criminal emperium, but by far this is the most disgusting! To joke with a man that risked his life and other things to bring to fore the criminal activities of rogue regimes around the world is the lowest of low since your misguided support of bloodthirsty witch like Clintons! Every right thinking person should be asking for the real criminals he exposed to be punished and not to arrest the messenger of truth! Kill Julian Assange today, which other real journalist will be next tomorrow?

  • The Stupidity of Trevor Noah is beyond anything we have seen in the western Mainstream Media that is the JOKE OF THE WORLD.

  • Way to shit all over the fourth estate

  • yes he has a beard you moron hes been stuck there for seven years ..all lies let assange go

  • So happy that everybody on here has such a deep grasp of geopolitics.

  • PIVOT!

  • What's wrong for telling the truth?

  • 6:06 Actually he was on another continent. The guy is called Lenín Moreno, president of Ecuador, and accepted a lot of money from the US to retire Assange's asylum status. How dumb and ignorant you must be for not knowing such a simple thing

  • CNN Breaking News. Everything can't be Breaking News! Everyday! Please stop that nonsense,it will lose its effect.

  • Fuck Trevor.

  • shameful state of society and media.not surprised trevor noah also a hack. So assange reveals the war crimes of us government and he is being punished for it not the people who committed them. And the media is concentrating on whether he was skating and not cleaning up the embassy :/

  • Travor Assange was under house arrest for seven years . Humans do become weired when they being isolated

  • Free Assange free journalism free our speech

  • I never watched this before because I thought this guy was only getting paid to say what he's been told to say to people who need to be told what to think. First and last time I'll watch this sack of shit.

  • Yeah your job is safe because you don't tell news, it's entertainment. How do we know this, because you just poke fun and have a laugh track. So anyone looking for facts, go elsewhere because this guy only gives his bosses opinion on anything.

  • Shut the fuck up julian was not skateboarding in the embassy and really, why on earth would he need to steal wifi when the embassy gave him access to it soooooo idk, he could continue running wiki leaks... your arguments are falling apart already... maybe try talking about the truth instead of bullshit

  • This reminds me of prison break.. When an innocent man is in custody for a a made up crime and everything else is a government cover up. Trevor is a disgrace!

  • Love how you make news funny. Was laughing all through but the cat ending was like....LMAO!!!

  • it is a comedy show,great work TN

  • Calm down Comment Section, it isn't that deep. Thanks.

  • Press freedom is nothing to make fun of.

  • This dumb anchor, calls WikiLeaks a rogue organization. ThIS DUMBWIT, CONEHEAD! Whats his name?

  • Not funny 🔯🔚

  • skipping bail is a complete fabrication - Sweden allowed him to leave BUT then re-opened the case after he left - excellent reporting at the time by Aust ABC, 4 Corners, segment "Sex, Lies and Julian Assange" paints awful picture of the Swedes, Brits & the Yanks, including DNC and ole Hillary - check the laugh track fool as current Ecuadoran former minister who knew Assange 6yrs who said current Ecuador Govt is slamming & putting out false info - and how did that joke of yours about Australian Aboriginal women go down? What a fool this comedian hack is

  • Lol remember that journalist that got chopped up in the saudi embassy? that was funny too.

  • Noah, you're an idiot !

  • pay for 7years rent.

  • This is not funny. Trevor you're disguting

  • Tell us Trevor this case was given to you to show... and this videos here in the channel have fake likes ... Yes Trevor you are a good guy but we all have been brainwash...

    • Becaz fuck You jackass. Trevor’s not brain washed, he’s paid off.

  • Dead eyed trever

  • i understand that it is a U.S culture to MAKE A LIVING out of mocking other people who are actually the last few who doing good and fighting for the dying human rights while you just sell everybody elses for a living. enjoy the "coins", humans. 12 years left.

  • i understand that it is a U.S culture to MAKE A LIVING out of mocking other people who are actually the last few who doing good ad fighting for the dying human rights. enjoy the "coins". 12 years left.

  • Those are evidence and not secrets.


  • That cat was cute in its many ties!! plus fuck you tevor your low level show host.

  • Damn... I used to look up to Trevor, Now look at him, prostituting himself and his speech, Man, how embarassing even to watch this, Cheap!

  • Fuck off, fucking sell out

  • The person who is reading the news is look like donkey and dog I never see like this stupit journalist worst way of news reading

  • This video explains the difference between a journalist and a simple TV clown mr.Noah. We really overestimated you and your tiny brain all these years

  • Tremendos mogolicos estos Yankees, se ríen del hecho más trágico contra la libertad y la verdad, dando lugar a los que dicen que la justicia internacional no existe....lo cual claramente es verdad...

  • I used to respect you Noah Trevor, and I still do respect you... but please introspect upon this issue... Julian Assange is a hero and champion of Human rights.

  • Comedy is dead

  • Laugh it up now Trevor it will only be a matter of time before they arrest other journalists and i am sure they start with comedy journalists.

  • Hopefully this helps wake people up to the purpose of these late night shows...

  • Trevor, I used to like you.

  • And *NOT ONE* _“freedom loving”_ Patriotic American, *British, or Australian* military member defended Julian Assange. Ya’ll claim to value honor and *honesty?* Julian Assange *honestly* informed the public of heinous abuse of power and the murder of innocent people by LYING corrupt government officials. Yet, ALL you Active military (and veterans), who took an honorable oath, did NOTHING to physically protect Assange from being kidnapped and put in chains LIKE A *SLAVE.*

  • The real story... not this BS (and what happened with the upvotes? all of a sudden over 15k in a night?? BS again)

  • Rude unfunny dick

  • Since the arrest of Assange, the US media has not had any media protests. Instead, they cheered. Look! The news of American liberal democracy is controlled by the government and the ruling class. Going to fucking freedom and democracy and justice is false.

  • Trevor is a sellout

  • Disappointed in Trevor. Why aren’t tv personalities and journalists screaming from roof tops!!!!

  • Meowser Soze?

  • Amazing how sensitive everyone is to these jokes. You’d think you knew Assange personally. Let’s not pretend we know all of his motivations or that he has never committed any crimes to find out “the truth”. It could be possible that everything people think he is, he is. A victimized journalist, a thief, a panderer, a sleaze bag, an altruistic hero, a nut, a hacker, a Trump supporter, etc. No one has clean hands and no government is pure. People, nations and diplomacy are all complicated things and taking one side over the other leads to more decisiveness without any real change. Just be happy you can entertain yourself and have the freedom and time to express yourself openly on this platform. Get over yourselves. It is possible to be human and do good and bad things.

    • MiRae Lee fuck you jack ass. This is the most stupid thing I’ve ever seen.

  • I'm starting to like your show and shit, but now, not anymore. I think you are stupid. RUvideo please stop recommending this guy's video!

  • Fuck you douche

  • You mr Trevor are so bad ...sad you had to do this. Just low man.

  • my question is what audience are you preaching to besides the studio? its very clear that most people left or right oppose the arrest of julian, yet something has driven you to go on with this segment anyway? I thought you were supposed to produce content that people agree with? unless you're being told to...hmm

  • in years to come when all this has blown over, trevor noah has placed himself on the side of the puppets.

  • o trevor, how low you have gone.

  • Julian Assange was arrested because he HELPED steel what he published. Not for publishing.

    • Others will not be at risk unless they also Help steel what is publish.

  • Fuck him.

  • Are you fucking talking about cats?!! are you serious?!

  • terrible piece! shame on you... very cheap comedy!

  • 19K likes vs 7.7K dislikes I guess that says something. We missed Jon Stewart. Trying to mock JA will never sound funny but you are too dumb to understand. The guy got the guts to challenge Governments for their evil acts what about you? I guess Ronny Cheingh is the only funny guy at Dailyshow since Hassan Minaj left. I am done with dailyshow. Old version of Dailyshow

  • This is one of the only times i think you should read the comment section, Daily Show. That was brutal to watch.

  • Julian Assange is our HERO... his light shall not die. To imprison Assange is to shoot the messenger. Arrest the criminals he exposed instead, he didn't commit those heinous crimes but told of them. AND you find that funny?

  • Hard to look in mirror post this trash, but you do it or you lose it. For a puppet has a hand up his arse or strings controlling. Hoping it is the least comfortable


  • let me tell you one thing TREVOR NOAH, HE IS FUCKING CLEVER THAN SHIT BRAIN LIKE YOU !!@#@$@$#Q*!!!!!!

  • I think this is the video that change my perception on him forever.

  • YOU ARE BEING LIED TO ABOUT JULIAN ASSANGE! See here the real motivations:

  • Dude, you gone and fucked up now! Trevor Noah crashes and burns in 6 mins. Watch this RT clip on Assange to get a clear perspective on this situation:

  • You make fun of a look like a USED Q TIP

  • 99 % of people commented how they hate your rant. Asshat

  • Hillerys lil bitch u are

  • Funny, the people in the comments calling Assange a journalist are the same ones who say The Daily Show does journalism, lol. Shows what they know.

  • He’s a fucking hero!

  • Unsubscribed you fcuking sellout Trevor! Didn't know you were such an a-hole

  • From a corrupt politician's perspective: *The worst crime is exposing a corrupt politician.* -----> This is what Julian Assange did. From the people's perspective: *The worst crime is SELLING OUT.* ----> This is what Trevor Noah did.

  • Oh Trevor; you're afraid they will come for you too if you support that illegal arrest.

  • i know that you are a comedian and this is this kind of satire but shameful noah really there is nothing funny about julien's arrest this man did so much to wake people up .

  • I used to enjoy you Trevor and now you’ve done this shit it wasn’t even quality comedy your just a sellout

  • It's moments like these where I miss Stewart. He was able to succinctly explain the gravity of the situation and then make you laugh about the absurdity of the political system that led to it. Noah fails miserably at both.


  • I've been a fan for a while, but man, that's your worst video. Not because it's not funny but because your team did not do the research right.

  • Tbh this piece is highlighting the new daily show turn for the worst. It’s more a comedic show than a journalist one. I beileive it was worth mentioning that the new president of Ecuador was against the protection of Assange and the fact that he supported Catalonia bid for independence and thus creating strain between Spain and Ecuador. Buzzfeed level man

  • First, Thank you Asange for exposing the rot in the Kenyan Government. Last, Shame for depicting Asange as a mere mortal who is afraid of the establishment as you probably do. To be precise. I do not hate Julian. I celebrate the man.

  • You really lost all your shine with this piece, Trevor. I really liked you until you made a joke out of the travesty that has happened to one of this world’s heros of freedom. You’re the shitty teenager.

  • Fuck you trevor

  • "What happened to Assange?"???? Try to spend 7 years in a room without going out and to have all the intelligence of your shitty country trying to put you in jail....then let's see what happens to you! worst piece of (false) comedy ever. I'm so disappointed.

  • Character assasination of Assange as paid for by the government, brought to you by comedy central

  • the press was to serve the governed not the governors

  • Shame on you Trevor, that guy exposed himself to danger so others can read the cruality gouvernments are doing to their ppl, and you are making fun of that.... !!
