"He brags about his money, he's disrespectful to women and there's always fights at his concerts"

"Daily Show" host Trevor Noah last night weighed in on the debate over whether GOP frontrunner and likely nominee Donald Trump is capable of being "presidential," as he so often claims but so rarely demonstrates.

At a campaign rally in Waterbury, Connecticut, Trump mocked "presidential" mannerisms by walking to the podium, holding his chin (or lack thereof) high and beginning, "Good evening, ladies and gentlemen of Waterbury."

"Imagine having president who just told us ... his game plan ahead of time," Noah said. "Like after a mass shooting, Trump would basically come out and go, 'O.K., I'm gonna open with grief-stricken, boo-hoo-hoo, then I'll do solemn, then hopeful, cue a single tear, then we'll go to lunch. Everybody on the same page?'"

For further insight, Noah brought out "senior Trump analyst" Roy Wood Jr., who said, "Donald Trump belongs in a rap video."

"Everything Trump says is straight out of a rapper's playbook," he explained. "He brags about his money, he's disrespectful to women and there's always fights at his concerts."
