The Daily Show host unpacked several developments Tuesday night as tensions escalate following Trump’s decision to kill Iranian Gen. Qasem Soleimani last week in a drone strike.
Trump has continued to defend the decision, and indicated to reporters that he’s not worried.
“We’ll see what happens. We’ll see what the response is, if any. But you’ve seen what I said our response will be,” he said Monday night.
The president’s comments caused Noah to scratch his head.
“The truth is, it’s not that surprising that Trump’s response is so muddled and confusing because he’s Trump,” Noah said. “What is interesting, is that the entire administration seems to be just as confused about every aspect of this situation.”
Tonight Iran fired more than a dozen ballistic missiles at U.S. military facilities in Iraq in a retaliatory strike.
Trump responded with a surprisingly upbeat statement on Twitter, writing: “All is well!”
“We have the most powerful and well equipped military anywhere in the world, by far!” he added. “I will be making a statement tomorrow morning.”
