The ‘Day by day Present’ breaks down the Funniest Second of the Alex Jones Trial

Trevor Noah spent a few minutes of his Daily Show monologue digging into Alex Jones, “a far-right commentator and a man who makes Donald Trump seem reasonable,” whose defamation trial took a terrible turn on Wednesday after it was revealed that Jones’ own lawyer had accidentally sent a large number of damning text messages to opposing counsel representing the families of the Sandy Hook shooting victims.

“Today in the trial, one of the funniest moments came when he found out that his incompetent lawyer had quit and put out the prosecution’s evidence that Alex Jones had proven in perjury,” the host explained before he shared a long clip from the events with the audience in which the founder of InfoWars was caught red-handed.

“Oh shit, that was funny!” Noah said, barely able to control his laughter. “Man, I like how surprised he was that he started turning into every emoji.” He added, “at one point he even tried to give himself COVID,” joking that it may have been Jones’s coughing fit pretending to have the disease he’s been calling fake for years down

“You know you’re in trouble when the truth chokes you because you’re on an adventure Hot ones,” Noah continued. “But you understand, this moment is huge. Because it shows that Alex Jones probably perjured himself, which means Alex Jones lies about things.”

That “horrific” realization made Noah wonder “chemtrails from airplanes was … not turning the frogs gay,” before asking, “Is that a lie too?!”
