For the can’t-make-this-up file, new “Daily Show” host Trevor Noah just praised the country of Oman for its friendly people and beauty:

Is Jon Stewart even allowed in Oman? And friendly, unless you’re gay which is a crime in Oman. Oman also just voted to deny “partner benefits to gay UN” staffers:

India was among the 43 countries, including China, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Oman, Pakistan, Qatar and Saudi Arabia, that voted in favor of a Russian resolution to deny partner benefits to gay UN staff.

Exit question: Would Trevor Noah do a stand-up gig in Indiana, or is that too controversial for the new “Daily Show” host?
