Trevor Noah: 13 White Guys Will resolve Women's Health Care
Trevor Noah was astounded that Republican representatives who voted final week to repeal Obamacare hadn’t read the bill and were dodging town corridor meetings to avoid the fallout. He was also stunned that Rep. Raul Labrador (R-Idaho) told wrathful constituents that “nobody dies because they didn’t bear access to health care.”
But what really had the “Daily note” host fired up was the “sausage-y” team of 13 white guys who were tapped to hammer out health care details, including what’s “best” for women.
“This whole thing will slither a lot faster whether women aren’t around nagging and menstruating outright over the bill. Dude power!” Noah, taking on the imagined dude persona of these guys, said.
Noah then invited correspondent Michelle Wolf to share her thoughts.
It just “doesn’t stare like a panel that protects women,” Wolf said. “That looks like the panel that says, ‘Well, she drowned, guess she wasn’t a witch. Let’s throw in another one!’”
Wolf was surprised that the panel couldn’t find a single woman to participate, but in a manner of speaking managed to dig up two Mormons.
“Which is weird for Mormons,” Wolf said, “cuz normally they want additional women.”
