Many fans were upset after Jon Stewart announced his retirement from The Daily Show. They were even more disheartened to learn his replacement is relatively unknown South African comedian Trevor Noah. The disappointment reached its peak after several seemingly sexist and anti-Semitic tweets were unearthed from the new host’s Twitter account.
Despite Stewart vouching for his successor following the controversy over the offensive tweets, many fans pledged not to watch the show with Noah holding the reins.
But they should reconsider.

It’s true Trevor Noah is not Jon Stewart – and that’s all right because he really isn’t. He has said so himself.
“I can only assume that this is as strange for you as it is for me. Jon Stewart was more than just a late-night host, he was often our voice, our refuge, and in many ways, our political dad. And it’s weird, because Dad has left. And now it feels like the family has a new stepdad – and he’s black, which is not ideal,”
However, that doesn’t mean the newly appointed late night host can’t be as good. For proof, watch Trevor Noah continuing Stewart’s crusade against “bull****” in the video above.
