Trevor Noah on Wednesday night took aim at the feud between President TrumpDonald John TrumpJoint Chiefs chairman denies report that US is planning to keep 1K troops in Syria Kansas Department of Transportation calls Trump 'delusional communist' on Twitter Trump has privately voiced skepticism about driverless cars: report MORE and his former chief strategist Stephen Bannon, joking that Trump always knew Bannon is a "Nazi."

The late-night comedian joked that he feels “bad” for Trump after excerpts were published from an explosive new book in which Bannon is quoted as saying that Trump’s son’s 2016 meeting with Russians was “treasonous.”

“I do feel bad for President Trump, because today he found out that some Nazis aren’t ‘very fine people,’” Noah said.


Trump faced major backlash over the summer when he said, regarding the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., that there were “very fine people” on “both sides” of the violence. Bannon, who returned to Breitbart News after leaving the White House, has long been connected to the alt-right and white supremacist movements, a connection he now denies.

In the new book, Bannon said there was “zero” chance that the president was not aware of the Trump Tower meeting between his son, Donald Trump Jr.Donald (Don) John TrumpConservatives face a tough fight as Big Tech's censorship expands GOP lawmaker defends Chelsea Clinton after confrontation over New Zealand attacks Trump Jr. defends Chelsea Clinton after confrontation at vigil for New Zealand attacks MORE, and the group of Russians.

“You know what that means, people?” he added. “Buckle up, because Trump’s about to blow!”

Trump, following the release of the excerpts, said his former chief strategist has “lost his mind.” Noah referred to the statement as a “diss track.”

In another quote from the book, Bannon said “they’re going to crack Don Jr. like an egg on national TV.”

“Whoa! Don Jr. is going to ‘crack like an egg?’” Noah said. “Honestly, I don’t even know if that’s a metaphor. Like, I think there’s at least a fifty percent chance you’d find yolk where a brain should be.”
