As the moment of truth neared, Trevor Noah took on a serious tone during The Daily Show.
“This is it - the end of the presidential race, and it feels like the end of the world.”
Trump's lead had strengthened to frightening levels, and Noah told viewers: “I don’t know if you’ve come to the right place for jokes tonight, because this is the first time throughout this entire race where I’m officially sh***ing my pants.”
“I genuinely do not understand how America can be this disorganised, or this hateful - I don’t know which one it is.”
A sKKKary reality, as Trevor addresses those who didn’t feel like voting...
During Trump’s acceptance speech, Noah commented:
This is like a sketch.
@Trevornoah I hope he's going to end his speech with "Live from New York this is Saturday Night."
He also highlighted a disturbing moment.
Did someone just shout "Kill Obama"?
Many responded that they’d heard the call to murder Obama.
If he didn’t leave of his own accord, celebs and fans alike joked that Trump would have the SA comedian deported.
Twitter user Anaklusmos even offered a positive view of SA president Jacob Zuma, saying: At least Zuma laughs at your jokes about him. Trump will deport you for Trump jokes.”
@Trevornoah bye, Trevor. It was so nice having you here. 😞
Come back alone. There's no space in South Africa. @Trevornoah
