Trevor Noah’s take on the Russia-Ukraine war and the many fallouts of the conflict have got many across the world talking, with some claiming the host of The Daily Show shared the truth most celebs are unwilling to admit.
According to Trevor, there have been double standards in the media reporting of the conflict compared to how the media reports similar conflicts in other areas, from Afghanistan down to Africa.
He also confirmed what many have been saying all along – the apparent racism in the treatment of those escaping the way to safer neighboring countries bordering the belligerents.
Some of his admirers who watched his take on the conflict, and the European media reporting of it, described him as the real thing – never mincing words.
