Trevor Noah Slams Trump's Russia Damage Control: ‘Get the F*ck Out of Here, Man'
Comedy Central"After President Trump threw America under the Russian bus, everyone stateside lost their shit," Trevor Noah said Tuesday night of the president's joint press conference with Vladimir Putin the day before. That explains why the White House apparently forced him to walk back his comments about Russian meddling in the U.S. election.

In yet another surreal moment Tuesday afternoon, Trump claimed that when he said, "I don't see any reason why it would be" Russia, he actually meant to say, "I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be."

"You know what? That makes sense. I actually believe Trump on this," the Daily Show host said, before checking his notes. "Sorry, what I meant to say was, ‘Get the fuck out of here, man!'"

Russia Hawk Axed From National Security Council Right Before Trump-Putin Summit
Photo Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily BeastShortly before Donald Trump detonated a NATO summit, shanked the beleaguered British prime minister and prepped for a face-to-face love session with Vladimir Putin, his White House quietly divested itself of a senior official hawkish on Russia and bullish on the transatlantic military alliance.

The circumstances of retired Army Colonel Richard Hooker's departure from the National Security Council on June 29 are in dispute. It's not clear whether Hooker was forced out or if his detail on the NSC came to its natural end. But what's not in doubt is that for the past 15 months, Hooker was senior director for Russia, Europe and NATO.

And just as his new boss, National Security Adviser John Bolton, was preparing to travel to Moscow to meet with Putin on June 27 to lay the groundwork for Trump's visit, Hooker was packing up his desk. Now, he's headed back to the National Defense University, the crown jewel of the Pentagon's cross-service military-education system, which had loaned him to the NSC. Hooker is the latest NSC staffer to leave as Bolton reconfigures the influential policymaking body in his image. Like Hooker, Bolton has long viewed Russia a strategic threat to the United States, and accused Putin of lying to Trump about interfering in the 2016 election.
