‘The Daily Show’ has been fact-checking Donald Trump’s statements for the past year, but as of Oct. 11, correspondent Desi Lydic has had enough of Trump’s ‘concentrated bullsh*t’, and declared that she’s not going to waste any more time on the task. WATCH the amazing ‘What the Actual Fact?’ segment here!
Desi Lydic, 35, weighs in on the second presidential debate in a funny What the Actual Fact? segment from Oct. 11, and it’s on point as usual. “Sunday’s debate was another day at the beach, in that I had to spend 45 minutes in the shower just to feel clean again,” Desi begins in the clip below. “You know what? I’m done. Pull the plug,” she suddenly announces before walking off the set. “Desi, this is your segment! You’re supposed to fact-check the debate,” host Trevor Noah says, feigning confusion.
“Trevor, fact-checking is a noble craft,” Desi tells him importantly. “It takes depth of knowledge, research; a skillfull, analytic mind…and I am done wasting that on Donald Trump.” Well, fair enough. WATCH the full segment below:
“It’s not even that the man lies. It’s more like he rejects the very idea that the point of language is to describe reality, so I’m out,” Desi continues, perfectly articulating Trump’s antics. “It’s like someone scraped the resin from the side of the debate, just concentrated bullsh*t,” she adds. Yess.
Desi then shows a montage of Trump lying about various things during the Oct. 9 debate, complete with hilarious buzzer noises every time he says something false. Which is often. “But like I said, I’m out. He’s your problem now, Trevor!” HA.
