(NewsGlobal.com)- During his headlining appearance at the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner over the weekend, comedian Trevor Noah took several shots at Florida’s Republican Governor Ron DeSantis, joking that he is trying to “outmaneuver Trump for 2024.”
He kicked off his jokes about DeSantis while describing all the famous people who were attending the dinner. Noah said Ron DeSantis was of his favorite people in the audience and quipped that he was surprised DeSantis had time to attend since “he has been so busy trying to outmaneuver Trump for 2024.”
Poor Trevor must have written his joke assuming that DeSantis would waste his time attending this garbage DC event.
But the joke was on Trevor Noah. Ron DeSantis wasn’t there.
Maybe Noah should’ve checked that first beforehand.
But he didn’t.
He kept going, saying “I see you, Ron. I see you, player!” He described DeSantis as slicker and smarter than Trump, adding he “can walk down ramps.”

During a press conference on Monday, Governor DeSantis responded to the media reports that claimed he was at the White House Correspondents’ dinner. He criticized the “paragons of truth” in the press for lying about it, saying this was why “that cabal” in Washington and New York “are so reviled by so many Americans.”
"I would NEVER attend that!"
