Trevor Noah Explains Why Alex Jones' 'Performance' Should Terrify You

That's where a person's identity unravels, the "Daily Show" host explained, as was the case for Hulk Hokan, who argued in court that he doesn't actually have a 10-inch penis, and Fifty Cent, who had to admit that he isn't really a millionaire.

When an attorney tossed out the notion that his client Alex Jones is a "performance artist", like so much chum in the media waters, how could Trevor Noah resist a bite?

"I see why Donald Trump has always liked Alex Jones", Noah said. "Your reputation is unbelievable". Jones and InfoWars have steadfastly supported Trump's candidacy since then.

"Trump is also a character who whips people up with whatever provocative bulls-t works, and then when it suits him he steps away". "On the campaign, he's like, 'China is raping us on trade everybody!"

Noah concluded: "Maybe Trump is also a performance artist. Maybe this is all a scam", Noah said.

He added that it would be truly "crazy" to eventually find out that Trump "the entire time has been somebody else". He has told his listeners that the fatal shooting of 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, was a hoax to drum up support for gun control legislation.

On Wednesday's Late Show, the host impersonated Jones with a new Jones-like character "Tuck Buckford", a hard-charging InfoWars conspiracy theorist prone to firing off pro-masculinity, anti-government tirades. Jones is fighting his ex-wife, Kelly, for custody of their children, ages 14, 12 and 9.
