Daily Show Mocks Ignorant, Anti-Immigrant Americans Vs. Enlightened, Tolerant Canadians

On Tuesday night’s Daily Show, host Trevor Noah and correspondent Hasan Minhaj spent a full five minutes of the show mocking Americans as hateful and stupid with ignorant attitudes towards immigrants. Minhaj played the part of a fear-mongering American who was schooled by the more compassionate neighbors to the North for their “enlightened”, welcoming attitudes toward Syrian refugees. In Hasan’s overwrought caricature of an ignorant American, not once did he bring up the massive problems with crime and assault or the backlash that Germany’s formerly inclusive immigration policy has had on their country.
