Comedian Trevor Noah doesn't think too highly of President TrumpDonald John TrumpThe Guardian slams Trump over comments about assault on reporter Five takeaways from the first North Dakota Senate debate Watchdog org: Tillerson used million in taxpayer funds to fly throughout US MORE’s proposal for a large-scale military parade in the nation's capital.

“The world knows America has a military,” Noah said during a broadcast of "The Daily Show" on Wednesday. "It’s in their countries right now.”

Noah, who was born in South Africa, offered an alternative suggestion to the president: “If you really want a parade, every time there’s a drone strike just fly another drone behind it playing marching music.”


The Pentagon and White House confirmed this week that planning is underway for a military parade. Trump has reportedly proposed the idea multiple times following his visit to France during Bastille Day, where a military parade was held as he met with French President Emmanuel Macron. 

Officials reportedly said the parade would take place on Veterans Day.

Lawmakers from both parties, ex-administration officials and members of the media — including Fox News hosts — criticized the idea, calling it a waste of money and warning that it would appear “totalitarian” and evoke similar demonstrations in North Korea and Russia.

Noah acknowledged that holding a military parade in itself is not a sign of authoritarianism, but said "it's when you look at everything else that your Spidey Sense starts to tingle," referring to Spider-Man.

Noah went on to mention some of Trump's actions that the comedian said made the president seem like a "dictator," including firing former FBI Director James ComeyJames Brien ComeyFormer FBI lawyer speaks with House lawmakers on Rosenstein, 2016 Emmet Flood steps in as White House counsel following McGahn departure McGahn departs as White House counsel MORE and his recent comments that Democrats were committing "treason" by not clapping during his State of the Union address.
