Trevor Noah connects Jeb Bush’s ‘Supergirl’ comment to Fox News’ Captain America hate
Comic books leap off the page and into the real world.
The Daily Show isn’t just diving into real-world politics. It’s also prepared to go into comic-bok politics.
The two worlds collided twice in the past few days. On Wednesday, Jeb Bush, who must have wondered why he’s even being asked about superheroes, commented on Supergirl’s hotness. And on Fox News, the commentators couldn’t fathom Sam Wilson’s Captain America fighting against a racist villain who hated unlimited illegal immigration. The Fox hosts wanted the politics out of comics; they just wanted good old-fashioned butt-kicking, explosions, and Hitler-punching—which was, of course, completely political back in the day
But for the rest of the candidates? Next time you’re asked, just stick to Superman.
