Trevor Noah Brilliantly Made The Media Squirm At The WHCD

Trevor Noah made plenty of jokes about Joe Biden, but his strongest message was reserved for the media in attendance.

Noah called out The New York Times reporters for holding on to the Kevin McCarthy tapes until their book went on sale:

The Daily Show host called out the hypocrisy of Peter Doocy asking the White House about Hunter Biden:

Noah delivered a powerful close that reminded journalists of how lucky they are:

Noah said:

If you ever begin to doubt how meaningful it is, look no for than what is happening in Ukraine. Look at what’s happening. There journalists are risking and even losing their lives to show the world what is really happening. You realize how amazing it is. In America, you have the right to seek the truth and speak the truth, even if it makes people in power uncomfortable. Even if it makes your viewers or your readers uncomfortable. To understand how amazing that is? I stood here tonight and made fun of the President Of The United States. I’m going to be fine. I’m going to be fine, right? 

Like, do you really understand what a blessing it is? Maybe it’s happened for so long that it has slipped your mind. It is a blessing. Here, ask yourself this question. Honestly, ask yourself this question. If Russian journalists, who are losing their livelihoods, as you were talking about, Steve, and their freedom for daring to report and with their own government is doing — if they had the freedom to write any words, to show any stories, to ask any questions — if they had, basically, what you have, would they be using in the same way that you do? 

Ask yourself that question every day. You have one of the most important roles in the world. Thank you so much for having me.

The White House Correspondents’ Dinner is one of the toughest gigs for any comedian, but Noah did a great job of walking the line between laughs and making a serious point.

Ukrainian journalists are losing their lives. Russian journalists have been locked up in prison or forced to flee the country, and in the United States, our journalists are complaining that Jen Psaki is too good at her job and they can’t become big stars.

Trevor Noah was right American journalists have no idea how good they have it.
