    i can't stand this guy. i loved the old daily show. i actually went to a live studio show in the stewart's first season in 1999 when i was a senior in high school...back when they used to have a banner at the end of the show that said "for free tickets write to:" the studio was in hell's kitchen. but i don't even watch this guy passively. just when he says something annoying. fuck him.

    How can people tolerate this kind of filth so blindly? How can you politically indoctrinated individuals stand by while snakes like Trevor turn innocent childhood characters into weapons for a political motive? This character doesn't "represent" anything, and you should all be ASHAMED.

    Trevor, that "Lady" instigated something that made a statement that was seen by 100M people in 1968. Probably didn't change much of anything, but significantly better than doing nothing. And here 50 years later it's still got you talking. So yes, it was only peanuts, but the nearest thing she had to social media.

    100 million Peanuts comic strip readers?!?! Wow didn’t know that. Trevor you expressed distaste that the old lady would turn to Charles Schultz after MLK murder... that it’s strange to turn to a comic strip for change. Don’t you consider yourself a comedian? You’re constantly bringing up civil rights issues and calling for change. I might be wrong but, based on exposure, I guess you can say that Franklin did more for civil rights than you do? 😉

    Dear trevor noah,
    You are the worst, your "jokes" fall short everytime. The people who find you entertaining, enjoy how you pander to their victimhood more than anything else. Ignorant people watch programs like yours and believe themselves to be informed on political views, but all you do is say what everyone else is already saying. You aren't daring and you aren't clever.
    Please stop being who you are immediately.

    Regarding the rapping Franklin clip, yeah it's hilariously awkward to look at now. But, A) according to Wikipedia, "It's Spring Training, Charlie Brown" "was produced in 1992 but unlike previous specials it was not shown on CBS, and remained unseen until Paramount released it on video in 1996 alongside 1966's Charlie Brown's All-Stars." So out of all the "Peanuts" specials that aired on TV, they picked a clip from one that never did and was held back from the public for four years. And B) it was the 90s. Even Mickey Mouse had a rap album in the 90s. (Seriously, it was called "Mickey Unrapped.")
