“Today we were supposed to be joined by Senior Trump Adviser Omarosa [Manigault] who, of course was here to promote her episode of Say Yes To The Dress,” The Daily Show host Trevor Noah told his viewers last night.
They laughed at his gag about a member of the Trump White House appearing on TLC’s wedding-dress show.
“That is true, by the way,” he added. They stopped laughing.
“But at last minute she bailed on us. And the reason she gave – and this is true again,” Noah said, anticipating another misunderstanding – “is that the administration did not want her interview on The Daily Show to eclipse the news of the day.”
Noah noted how little sense that made, given that the news of the day was that FBI director James Comey had publicly rejected Trump’s claim Obama wiretapped him, and confirmed the bureau is investigating any links between Russia and Trump’s campaign during the election.
