Trevor Noah: ‘Donald Trump Is a Cancer’

As Alec Baldwin was reprising his role as Donald Trump on “Saturday Night Live,” Trevor Noah was 3,000 miles in Los Angeles delivering yet another scorching verbal smackdown of the president.

The late-night talk show host was the surprise performer on Saturday at Greg Berlanti and Robbie Rogers’ inaugural Barbara Berlanti Heroes Gala honoring “Arrow” star Stephen Amell and F— Cancer co-founder Yael Cohen Braun.

Noah told the audience gathered in a theater on the Warner Brothers lot that a close friend of his beat cancer. “He said, ‘Trevor, cancer is like, it’s a scary thing because they first tell you about it, you don’t believe it is happening,’” Noah said. “’You know that it exists and you don’t ever believe it’s something that can happen to you. It’s something that’s scary and you think it’s only affected you but it’s affected everyone around you and it seems like it’s the end and for some people it is, but for others, it isn’t. All you know is that you hate it every single day.’ I was like, ‘So, wow, cancer is Donald Trump.’

“It’s pretty wild,” Noah added. “He generally is. He’s a cancer.”
