There was a sigh of relief across the entertainment industry after South African comedian Trevor Noah managed to earn enthusiastic reviews for his debut as host of “The Daily Show.” Today, though,we’ll just go ahead and sigh. It’s not that we thought Noah would manage to find humor across the political spectrum; we just didn’t think he’d resort to unfounded liberal clichés so quickly.
“Daily Show” host Trevor Noah says pro-life GOP-ers should put some of that passion into preventing gun violence http://t.co/lGqBnXLRjL

The Los Angeles Times notes today that Noah tackled the subject of gun control on Monday night’s show by wishing that pro-lifers would devote some of their zeal to preventing gun violence; i.e., passing gun control. “Imagine if we could bring some of that pro-life passion into being well, more pro-life.” ROTFL!
His comedic observation? Republican anti-abortion activists are like comic book collectors: “Human life only holds value until you take it out of the package, and then it’s worth nothing.”
Comic collectors do believe treating new books with care preserves their inherent value and is better than placing them in a shredder.

@latimes abortion rights = death of innocent human life. Why won't ALL People stand up for the rights of the unborn, the voiceless.

Because until it’s delivered, the fetus is just a clump of cells. Didn’t you learn anything from Bill Nye’s dropping of hardcore abortion science?
@latimes yeah. Who cares about stupid babies anyway… Maybe people who still have their souls intact.

Lol. Or the left can tell us why they prefer abortions over guns to save their family… Oops

If you can handle the hilarity, the clip “Not so pro-life after all” can be streamed at Comedy Central’s website.
