“A lot of the world is disappointed in America because America is that beacon, is that lighthouse, that bastion of democracy,” he said on “CBS This Morning” Monday.


“The biggest thing I’ve seen is America is not as immune to the ills of the world as it thought it was,” the host of Comedy Central’s “Daily Show” added.

Noah said Trump’s victory last week exposed serious fault lines on gender and race in the U.S.

“I think it’s sad where we’re now living in a place where we’re normalizing and moving on so quickly from two glaring truths that were part of what happened in this election,” he said.

“There are people who put two things above everything else,” Noah added of Trump’s supporters. "That is whiteness and there is also sex. The truth is we do live in this world."

But, Noah said "you have to give [Trump] a chance as president."

"I’m not saying I’d like to; you have to. When the person is president, the person is the president,” he continued.

“Hillary faced it throughout her life,” he said. "I keep trying to think of that. And unfortunately, I have this metric in my head where I say, ‘If she were a man.' The fact I even have to say that means that there is a problem. Misogyny has very quickly gone out of the conversation. 

“Even as a man, I have to come to grips with the fact it is a tough world to be in when there’s this invisible monster that keeps you down. People talk about the glass ceiling. What you don’t realize is you can’t see it because it’s see-through."
