With Hunter Biden's foreign business deals, Trevor Noah turned his attention to the issue of nepotism on Wednesday night.
"The truth is that your name could be a big reason for you to be a foot in your life," The host of the Daily Show began. "With that said," he added, "you can't deny it is not a good look that a Ukrainian company hired Hunter Biden just months after Joe Biden became the Obama administration's man in Ukraine. Because it seems like a lot of people doing his business because of his father's position. "
" And I understand why many people would complain about it, "he continued. "What I don't understand is why these people complain about it."
He cut a clip of Donald Trump Jr. accusing Hunter Biden of trading his name and Eric Trump arguing is that he and his brother are free from criticism because they do not sit on any corporate boards.
"First of all, I'm not surprised that no one has put Beavis and Forehead on any corporate boards," Noah said. "I don't even think they are allowed on the dive board."
But more importantly, the host says, "If there was ever an example of people who had opportunities because of their names, these are the two." For example, if Donald Trump Jr. was not the son of Donald Trump, Noah asked why someone would pay him $ 50,000 to give a speech. "Sharing My Bad Beard Experience?"
"Besides, if Trump's sons are really concerned about being genuinely concerned about the children of politicians doing business abroad," Noah added, "then can anyone to explain to me why they were doing this? "
He then allowed various news outlets to give details of the ongoing foreign projects currently being undertaken by Eric and Don Jr. on behalf of the Trump Organization. "Yes, that's right, even with his father in office, Trump is still growing his business in places like India, Philippines, Indonesia, Uruguay," Noah said. "They are all over the world. It's like The incredible race without running and without chins. "
But" at least Donald and Eric are one step removed from the Trump presidency, "Noah said, before turning his attention to Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, who have official roles in the White House and still continue to get involved enterprises that take advantage of foreign money.
"Let it be clear now," Noah concluded. "I'm not protecting Hunter Biden. I do not know him. I don't know about his business. I'm just saying that the last people who should talk about the blurred lines of family names and political influence are the people who currently run their White House home office. “
