Trevor Noah Calls Out the NRA for Their Silence on Philando Castile

By

In case you missed it, here’s a great clip from last night’s Daily Show, where Trevor Noah takes some time during a segment called “So Much News, So Little Time” to address not just the Philando Castile verdict, but the resulting silence of the NRA despite the fact that Castile was a legal gun owner. “Philando Castile wasn’t just a man shot at a traffic stop – he was a legal gun owner whose family was in the car and who had committed no crime at all. In a story of a man being shot because he was lawfully armed, you would think that one powerful group in America would say something about it. This is one group that you would expect to be losing their goddamn minds about this,” Noah says. “It’s interesting how the people who define themselves by one fundamental American right – the right to bear arms – show that once racism is involved, the only right that they believe in is their right to remain silent.”
