Trevor Noah mocks Trump with a full page ad asking the "soon-to-be ex-president" to call him for legal help

Trevr Noah's picture was featured in the ad along with other Daily Show correspondents.

Trevor Noah, the popular host of The Daily Show has become the talk of the town after a bold advertisement on the Washington Post, Los Angeles Times and New York Times.



 

The 27th, August, 2020 paper featured a full-page ad that looked like a promotion for a shady law firm. The ad asked, "Are you a soon-to-be ex-president?” It further asked, “About to lose legal immunity?” The firm promises it can “get you off … and you won’t even have to pay us $130,000," alluding to the settlement made by President Trump to Stormy Daniels, according to TMZ.  The parody ad also encouraged a "soon-to-be ex-president" seeking attorneys to call them if their lawyer was in jail, according to Newsweek.



 

The parody ad for the firm, Trevor Noah & Associates & Sons featured a picture of the talk show host along with other Daily Show correspondents such as Ronny Chieng, Roy Wood Jr., Michael Kosta, Desi Lydic, Jaboukie Young-White, and Dulcé Sloan. 

Further, the ad promised satisfactory legal help to all their clients for an amusing list of charges that was an obvious jab at President Trump. It included, "Corruption, mega-corruption, emoluments ([They] know what that is), shady rich guy tax stuff, obstruction of justice (same price for multiple counts), you told people to inject bleach for some reason, [and] mail murder"

The hilarious commercial also included service number for those who neeed help. The service line at 1-210-WH-CRIME led people to a pre-recorded message from Lydic, according to Newsweek. It asks people to dial 1 if they were the president and 2 if they were not. If anybody wanted assistance in Spanish, they are told to "hang up."

If you are not the president, Lydic congratulates the caller and takes them to VoteVoteVote.com. The site allows people to register to vote. "That's right, this is a public service announcement! Gotcha. Anyway, please check your voter registration, and make a plan to vote," says the caller.



 

If a caller dialed one, Trevor has a prerecorded legal advise. "Hello Mr. President, I'm Trevor Noah, managing partner of Trevor Noah & Associates & Sons. Have you ever been to Uganda, sir? It's a beautiful country with a strong goat-based economy, and most important, it does not extradite to the United States," says Trevor. The talkshow host also offers to transport the president and his family to the African country for a reasonable fee of  $10 million. Trevor encourages people who pressed one to dial 2 to hear the message he has for them.

Trevor, who became the host of the talk show in 2015 is known for his witty sense of humor, his well crafted political sattire and outright critisims. Instead of following the formula of a clinched talk show, Trevor is seen experimenting with his style of presenting.

Besides, the super confident and charismatic host has been successful in making the common folks more politically aware through the talk show. Though Trevor seems to be a politically critical person, the talk show host said he never thought he was a very political person.

The South African born said to The Guardian, "I never considered myself a very political person. Then when I travelled, I realised, ‘Oh no, I am extremely political.’ It’s just that in my country, the base level is so politicised that we don’t think it is. And when you go to the US, a lot of people are just like, ‘Meh – I don’t really follow politics’. The way it is right now in America, Donald Trump is pop culture, and everyone is talking about supreme courts and cabinet positions. But that’s how South Africa has almost always been. You couldn’t not be. We were born political.”
