Get out and vote! Like many others, that’s the message Trevor Noah is sending to his ‘Daily Show’ viewers. He got serious for a minute to issue a major plea during his Nov. 7 show, urging the public to hit the polls for Hillary Clinton so we don’t have Donald Trump as a president. Watch here!
Trevor Noah’s reason for supporting Hillary Clinton is pretty simple: Donald Trump, 70, has the KKK on his side…and we certainly don’t want that in a president, right?! The talk show host took four minutes out of the Nov. 7 episode of The Daily Show to beg his viewers to hit the voting booths on Nov. 8, and made it clear that his support is behind Hillary.
“I see people online, I see people on TV, I hear people in the streets talking about how they don’t feel like they want to vote. And I understand that. It’s not always exciting to vote,” he began. “Some people go, ‘Hey, there’s no need to vote, Hillary’s up in the polls.’ Now if you’re one of those people, I would urge you to reconsider.”

He went onto give a perfect example: Hillary was up by 20 points in Michigan during the primaries, but the state still went to Bernie Sanders. “That was only 20 points. Hillary’s only up in some polls by two,” he explained. “You realize, that’s less of a field goal in American football? If you were up by three in a game, you wouldn’t be like, ‘We got it folks. I think we can rest!’ You can’t rest. This is not one of those times to rest and the most important reason I say that to you is because the people on Donald Trump’s side are really, really enthusiastic voters. He has teh KKK voting for him! If there was ever a reason to vote, it’s because on the other side, the KKK seize an opportunity to come back into the mainstream. That’s the scariest s*** I’ve ever come across in my life. They’re parading in public. They’re considering just making one big hole now, that’s how confident they are. I don’t understand people saying, ‘I don’t know, man. I don’t care. I’m not going out.’ They’re going out — the KKK. There’s no K in complacent, folks. They’re going out there.”
