Let’s call this cupcakegate.
Libs took to Twitter over the past few days to trash Comedy Central’s Trevor Noah after Blaze TV host Tomi Lahren posted this pic to Instagram thanking the ratings-challenged “Daily Show” host for cupcakes following her appearance on his ratings-challenged show last week:
Some examples of the hate directed at Noah:
I feel sorry for Trevor Noah. Caught between American ratings and politics. Strictly speaking Tomi was great for ratings. But the cupcake..

But Noah wants everyone to know that he didn’t send the cupcakes … it was his people that did it:

Wow. “Daily Show” staffers dared to do something nice for a guest and Noah won’t stand up for it?
