"Right now, Trump is like, & # 39; We need a wall upside down, guys! & # 39; TREVOR NOAH
"I also liked how the tunnel used solar energy, too. That was like a good touch. It was almost as if the drug cartel saw the latest report on the weather, and they looked like: "Man, we have to do our part, man." I do not want my children to grow up in a white marble mansion and a pet tiger with no ozone layer, man. " TREVOR NOAH
