South African comedian and host of the popular US show ‘The Daily Show’ is in hot water after comparing soon-to-be Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan to Donald Trump.
Noah dubbed Khan “Pakistan’s Donald Trump”, while noting the two have similar backgrounds and lifestyles and went on to label a bedroom of Khan’s “the Pakistani Trump Tower” while labelling Khan himself “the tanned version’ of Donald Trump”.
Imran Khan was recently voted into the role of Prime Minister of Pakistan by popular vote, and as you might expect; PEOPLE. ARE. FUMING.

People are calling it an ‘insult to Pakistan’
Absolutely pathetic. This comparison is an insult to Pakistan. This is what happens when you are trying to be funny with 0 actual knowledge on the grounds. We elected him democratically unlike the Russians hacking your election.@Trevornoah shame

‘This is insulting on so many levels’
This video is insulting and inaccurate on so many levels that I can’t even begin to fathom. And @Trevornoah , I truly am a fan of yours. And the creativity behind this ‘bit’ probably had nothing to do with you, but it surely feels like that you’re just another puppet.

‘The most popular politician’; demonstrated by the recent democratic election
@Trevornoah I really want you to get your facts straight about Imran Khan. He is the most popular politician in Pakistan. Comparing him with Donald Trump it’s an insult to Pakistani people. pic.twitter.com/YlI2qbTv1a
