Trevor Noah

Trevor Noah talks about the protests led by women and now high school girls that have swept Iran in recent weeks after the government’s brutal crackdown on women’s rights.

Part of the protests were the death of Mahsa Amini, a 22-year-old Kurdish woman who was killed in police custody after she was arrested for not covering her hair properly.

In a recent speech, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei called the protests a “painful event” and blamed the United States and Israel.

“Come on, man. You can’t blame America and Israel for everything,” said the Daily Show host. “This is the Iranians protesting what the Iranian government has done to them. It has nothing to do with the US or Israel. I bet this guy will come out of the bathroom at a party, ‘Looks like Israel is blocking your toilet, yes Bar? “

“Secondly, can I say that every day I am impressed by the bravery and tenacity of Iranian women and girls,” Noah continued. “Because remember, they risked their lives to protest a brutal regime.

“I knew I didn’t have the guts to do it,” he added. “I’m not going to lie. Like the one time my mom thought it was Friday when it was actually Saturday, and I was afraid of incurring her wrath, so I went to school.”

Stephen Colbert

On The Late Show, Stephen Colbert took part in the crucial Senate race between incumbent Georgia Democrat Rafael Warnock and Republican candidate Herschel Walker, who has supported a national abortion ban without exception. “It turns out that he might make an exception,” Colbert noted.

In 2009, the extremely anti-choice Walker paid for his then-girlfriend’s abortion, according to the Daily Beast. Walker denied the report, calling it an “outright lie.” “If Herschel Walker knew one thing, it was lying,” Colbert said, “because he did a lot of things.”

Walker lied that he was an FBI agent, hid secret kids on the campaign trail, and lied that he never lied that he graduated from the University of Georgia. “He didn’t just lie, he lied? What a lesson does that teach his secret kids!” Colbert joked.

His ex-girlfriend brought receipts—one from an abortion clinic, a copy of a $700 check from Walker, and a signed recovery card. “It’s a, um, what’s the word? A disaster,” Colbert said. So the former football star went on to damage control on Fox News, as Colbert put it, “the most effective birth control known to man: Sean Hannity.”

When asked to explain the $700 check, Walker said, “Well, I send money to a lot of people, which is fun. I do scholarships for kids, and I keep giving people money because I’m always helping people.”

“It’s true, he does enjoy helping people,” Colbert said. “That interview really helped Raphael Warnock, for example.”

Jimmy Kimmel

In Los Angeles, Jimmy Kimmel delves into the release of New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman’s new Trump book, Confidence Man. “If you think there’s nothing more to say, you’re wrong,” Kimmel said.

Details in the book, published Tuesday: Five-year-old Donald Trump threw rocks at a baby named Dennis — “essentially the same thing he did with Mike Pence years later,” Kimmel quipped.

Kimmel lists some of the book’s highlights: Trump thinks gays love him, and during a flight with Jeffrey Epstein’s colleague Ghislaine Maxwell, he fast-forwards his then 13-year-old son Eric Completed all dialogue in Bloodsport just to watch the fight scenes. “The surprising part of the story is that he got Eric on the plane,” Kimmel said.

Trump often makes fun of his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, “so I guess we have something in common,” Kimmel said with a laugh.

Trump was concerned that his daughter Ivanka would have to wear a burqa before a meeting at Camp David with Taliban leaders was finally canceled. “It’s one thing to invite people who help Osama bin Laden, but no one made Ivanka wear a burqa!” Kimmel was expressionless.

“It’s a book,” Kimmel concluded. “I have to admit, I thought it was funny. He’s not boring. He’s not like Joe Biden who goes to bed at 8 with a roll of Necco wafers. He likes to make 10 crazy things every day. thing.”
