With the Republican National Convention happening right now (which has been basically like a second Christmas for talk show hosts this week), Trevor Noah and The Daily Show decided that they’d take it a step further. Today they took out a full, two-page ad offering up fake legal services to Donald Trump.
The ad was featured in the New York Times, The Washington Post, and the Los Angeles Times. In the ad, Noah and his staff are featured as “Trevor Noah & Associates & Sons: Presidential Attorneys”. The advertisement reads “Are you a soon-to-be-ex-President? About to lose legal immunity? Has your lawyer gone to jail? Call the very fine people on YOUR side.” (The last bit is a dig at Trump’s infamous “very fine people on both sides” declaration).
On the bottom there is a number that, when you call, has two options. “Press 1 if you are the President. Press 2 if you’re not.” Below you’ll find the response to option one.
“Hello, Mr. President. I’m Trevor Noah, managing partner of Trevor Noah & Associates & Sons,” the message begins. “Have you ever been to Uganda, sir? It’s a beautiful country with a strong goat-based economy. And most important, it does extradite to the United States. At any time on or before Jan. 20, 2021 I can transport you and any members of your family you actually like to Uganda. I can provide this service for, I don’t know, $10 million. Let me know.”
Option two simply states “Congratulations on not being the President,” and encourages you to visit votevotevote.com.
