Trevor Noah: Hannity is ‘Trump’s archbishop of bulls---’

Trevor Noah on Monday referred to Fox News's Sean Hannity as President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump: 'Haven't thought about' pardons for Mueller target Pence: Rocket attack 'proves that Hamas is not a partner for peace' Conservation remains a core conservative principle MORE's "archbishop of bullshit."

“If you’re truly devoted to the Church of Trump, then you know that the memo’s true reason for being is to discredit the FBI, which is why the words of the memo mean much less than the spirit of the memo,” Noah said on "The Daily Show."

“And this is a concept that no one understands better than Trump’s archbishop of bullshit.”

Noah then played a clip from Hannity on Fox News, in which Hannity said: "As we have been explaining, this is Watergate times 1,000."

"Mueller's investigation is and has been a witch hunt from the very beginning. It's built on a house of cards, and tonight it is crashing down," Hannity said on the program.

"And by the way, nobody else will say this, all charges against Paul ManafortPaul John ManafortTrump: 'Haven't thought about' pardons for Mueller target Trump: Mueller acted honorably Sanders: 'No discussion' of pardoning former Trump aides MORE and Gen. Michael Flynn need to be dropped. It's that simple."

Noah joked that nobody else would say that because they'd all be "embarrassed to look that dumb."

He added that Hannity thought the memo would exonerate Trump. 

"Sean Hannity, admit it: On this one, you lost," Noah said.

Noah was referring to the recently released Republican-authored memo that alleges surveillance abuses at the Department of Justice.

The memo — drafted by staff for House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin NunesDevin Gerald NunesThe Hill's 12:30 Report: Trump, Dems eye next stage in Mueller fight Nunes on Mueller report: 'We can just burn it up' Nunes faces tough odds with Twitter lawsuit MORE (R-Calif.) — alleges that senior Justice Department officials inappropriately relied on a piece of opposition research paid for in part by Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign to obtain a surveillance warrant on Trump campaign aide Carter Page. It claims that without the so-called Steele dossier, no surveillance warrants would have been sought.

Trump this past weekend claimed the memo "totally vindicates" him in the ongoing investigation into his campaign's alleged links to Russia.

The House Intelligence Committee on Monday voted unanimously to release a memo drafted by Democrats to counter the GOP-crafted document.

The 10-page classified document now goes to Trump, who has five days to block its release if he so chooses. It remains an open question whether he will.

The Democratic memo is expected to lay out a point-by-point rebuttal of the assertions in the Nunes memo and make the case that the FBI had good reason to spy on Page as part of the counterintelligence probe into Russian election meddling, which includes possible connections between the Trump campaign and Moscow.
