When Jon Stewart left the “Daily Show,” we thought Trevor Noah might not stoop to the anti-Catholic lows that Stewart descended to on occasion. Last night, he proved us wrong.
After Noah made some humorous, and inoffensive, cracks about the pope’s quips aboard the papal plane, he referred to him as that “mother******.”
This cannot stand as the “new normal” at Comedy Central. Noah would never refer to President Obama this way, nor should he invoke such a vile obscenity to describe Pope Francis.
Though Noah’s remark was not made in a malicious tone, it clearly crossed the line. He should apologize to the Holy Father and to Catholics.
