Trevor Noah Is Fed Up With Wokeness: 'This S**t Is Getting Ridiculous'

“What’s next? Are we going to arrest George R.R. Martin?"

Trevor Noah thinks US Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke is being forced to apologize too much ― and it’s time to put a stop to it. 

O’Rourke ― or “handsome scarecrow,” as Noah called him ― has come under fire lately for some of the things he did as a teen, including belonging to a group of hackers and writing violent fiction.  

“He wrote fiction,” Noah said, adding:

“What’s next? Are we going to arrest George R.R. Martin? ‘That man’s a monster. He killed thousands!’ No. He’s a monster because he refuses to finish those books. That’s why he’s a monster. What the hell, George? You and Robert Mueller having a contest? Someone release something, goddammit!” 

Noah said O’Rourke had to apologize for that and “about 50 other things,” including an interview in which he said he was “born” to hold office, which critics said pointed to a sense of entitlement and white privilege.  

″‘Born for this’ is a figure of speech we all use to indicate we’re ready for something,” an exasperated Noah explained. “I wasn’t actually born for the all-you-can-eat buffet. It’s just something I say. This shit is getting ridiculous. This is not wokeness ― this is insanity!”
