Trevor Noah Rips Trump for Not Helping NY With Coronavirus Due to Cuomo Feud: \'Do Your Motherf*cking Job!\'  

On the latest episode of "The Daily Social Distancing Show," host Trevor Noah used a recent Daily Beast story as a jumping-off point to attack President Trump for refusing to help struggling states like New York during the coronavirus crisis.

"What's most mind-blowing about Trump's sudden impulse to get back to normal is that right now the situation is far from under control, especially right here in New York," Noah said from his Manhattan couch, "which right now has over half the country's coronavirus cases."

After examining how New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has been openly criticizing the Trump administration's response, Noah said, "I can see why Cuomo is pissed at Trump. If you need 30,000 ventilators, it's insulting for someone to give you 400." He compared it to throwing a rubber duck at a drowning victim.

"And apparently, part of the reason New York isn't getting enough federal help," the host continued, "is because Trump feels that Governor Cuomo is just too mean to him." He cited the quote from an unnamed senior White House official to The Daily Beast that reads, "If you're good and respectful to [Trump], he will treat you the same-it's that simple."

"Yes, you treat Trump well and he'll treat you well," Noah added. "Or as he would call it: a quid pro corona. And so, as mind-boggling as it seems, while New York is in an actual crisis right now, with thousands of lives at stake and people actually dying, Donald Trump is asking people to be polite to him in exchange for his help."

So the host advised New Yorkers to "give the president what he wants" and tell him, "Please, Mr. President, do you motherfucking job!"

Then last week, the captain of the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt, who had appealed to his superiors for help, was fired.By Sunday, friends said, he had come down with the coronavirus himself.The military has long adhered to a rigid chain of command and tolerated no dissent expressed outside official channels.
