‘The Daily Show’ taunts Trump with full-page ad directed at ‘soon-to-be ex-president’
Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” taunted President Trump with a full-page ad in newspapers on Thursday for a mock law firm looking to represent a “soon-to-be ex-president.”
The ad was published ahead of the Republican National Convention’s last night, when Trump is expected to deliver remarks formally accepting his party nomination.
“Are you a soon-to-be ex-president? About to lose legal immunity? Has your lawyer gone to jail? Call the very fine people on YOUR side,” the text of the ad reads for the mock firm, “Trevor Noah & Associates & Sons presidential attorneys.”
The ad features Noah, the host of “The Daily Show,” as well as other comedians featured on the program.

The ad appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post and the Los Angeles Times, Deadline reported.
The ad directs the public to a phone number, which when reached has two options: one for the president and one for anyone who is not the president. The message for Trump includes an offer to transport Trump and “any family you actually like” to Uganda, which Noah said in the call does not extradite to the U.S.
The message for people who are not Trump directs the public to a website to register to vote.
