Once again, Donald Trump has won the only fight that matters to him the fight for attention, Noah said.

That Was Fast! Trevor Noah Is Publishing a Book of Personal Essays

  Just like his Daily Show papa, Jon Stewart, Trevor Noah is wasting no time inking that book deal: Noah has announced he's publishing his first book of personal essays in November with Spiegel & Grau, a Penguin Random House imprint. The essays will detail Noah's life in South Africa "during the last gasps of apartheid and the tumultuous days of freedom that came with its demise," experiences he often inserts into his comedy. But if it seems a little premature to be shelling out millions ($3 million, reportedly ) for more words from a guy who's been in the Daily Show chair less than six months, well, hey, Stewart published his first collection of essays (1998's Naked Pictures of Famous People ) a year before his TDS tenure even began. So take that, Noah! Why the need to commit his life story to paper? "I couldn't find a good book about myself so I decided to write one. And just like me this book doesn't have an appendix," Noah said in a statement. Touch. Fingers crossed his essays have better editing than his old tweets ever did .    Read More...   http://www.vulture.com/2016/01/trevor-noah-to-publish-book-of-personal-essays.html

Trevor Noah and The Daily Show Love Being Unable to Understand Sarah Palin

  Sarah Palin recently endorsed Donald Trump for president. Maybe. Tough to know what happened for sure, but Trevor Noah is here now to endorse Sarah Palin endorsing Donald Trump for president because he thought the idea of that was for sure unbelievable and awesome and kind of incoherent and off-base. Did you catch Palin's Curtis Hanson shout-out, for example? Noah did! So roll the clip above to start your Throwback Thursday off with a bunch of old thrillers. You'll also learn what Palin has in common with Steven Avery, and how Trump is like a WWF interviewer . Election 2016 is off to a scary, but fun, start.   Read More...   http://www.vulture.com/2016/01/trevor-noah-the-daily-show-sarah-palin.html

The Daily Show Explains Why This Year’s Oscars Are Oh-So-Very White

  By now you've probably heard all the fuss about the whitest Oscars since, well, last year's Oscars. On Thursday, not a single person of color was nominated for their acting , despite a wealth of meaty, praised roles and several box-office hits starring POC , particularly black men. Who's to blame for their perpetual exclusion? Black people, of course! Allow The Daily Show' s Roy Wood Jr. to explain where black people in Hollywood went wrong. See, it's not that black people can't make films about anything other than their own oppression , it's that they didn't try hard enough last year to dupe white Academy voters into thinking they were watching another Django . Had Michael B. Jordan entered the ring to a negro spiritual instead of to Tupac's "Hail Mary," maybe we wouldn't be in this predicament. Will Smith's Concussion ? Too many head traumas, not enough whippings. Straight Outta Compton try Straight Outta Cotton Fields . Even Leo had to rewind back to Colonial America to get his likely first Oscar. POC, take note!   Read More...   http://www.vulture.com/2016/01/daily-show-takes-on-oscarssowhite.html
