‘Daily Show’ Accused of Transphobia over ‘Donna Trump’ Joke

Big Hollywood: Comedy Central’s Daily Show has been blasted on social media and accused of ridiculing transgender people after the show’s official Twitter account cracked a joke about President Donald Trump transitioning into a woman.

The official Twitter account for the Trevor Noah-hosted show posted a message Wednesday asking viewers to pick what they thought Thursday’s biggest news headline would be.

The four hypothetical headlines were “Trump uses Constitution as a KFC napkin,” “Comey drops a complete ‘visual album,’” “Ivanka requests immunity,” and “Donald Trump announces he is now Donna Trump.”

The last joke apparently set off social media, as users wasted no time in ripping the Daily Show for making light of transgender transitioning.

Some users noted the joke was particularly offensive because it was made on International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia & Biphobia.  Go see

  1. Well if he were Tim Allen, he would be out of a job….oh wait never mind.

    The left’s outrage at the left never amounts to anything or the right’s outrage at the left never amounts to anything either (except higher ratings).

  2. Amen, Corky. Everybody is always talking about using Alinsky’s Rules against the left, but how can that be done when the left’s rules are situational and non-binding? Sure, the ephemeral nature of the left’ s logic results in whiplash sometimes, like when Colbert got the wrong response to Comey’s firing, but the trade off in greater flexibility makes it worth all the lying and magical thinking.

  3. msNBC Mourning Joe hears a ‘One Note Top of World’ rating siren.
    A Saw Tooth Screamer.
    They despise you Joe…
    You and your media pals.
    ‘Tune In’ Laugh On.
    You’re getting their Nickle.
    They get a Dime bag of Popcorn.

  4. “Against Homophobia, Transphobia & Biphobia”

    The term “phobia’ is totally misused. I suppose that is due to the lack of a real education by those using it.

    Webster’s Dictionary:

    “Definition of phobia
    : an exaggerated usually inexplicable and illogical fear of a particular object, class of objects, or situation”

    Another “Fiction” passed gleefully on by the MSM. BS!

  5. Liberals are the biggest bunch of bigots on the planet. They’re the party of the KKK, Jim Crow, lynchings and every other evil heaped upon the freed black people of the post civil war America. They’re now closet racists who say one thing in public and something totally different in private. You best believe the n word is a big part of their vocabulary.

  6. Are we finally finding the bottom of the gutter on Trump jokes or did they screw up and poke a sacred cow?

    Ooh. It’s not the reference to Trump that mattered but how the reference referenced. Got it.

  7. This cracks me up. Homophobia. Who in their right mind is afraid of gay people? Or trans people? I don’t fear them, I pity them.

  8. Attempting to watch Trevor Noah is cringe-inducing. How painfully void of imagination and
    talent do you have to be to run in front of a camera and pull a disgusting “Colbert” on Trump
    for the ratings. Only one reason why this empty vessel has air time….

  9. ________phobia: a word created by fascists and used by cowards to manipulate morons.

    Fill in the blank with what ever victim class the Left is “protecting” and the definition will not change; homo-, islamo-, trans-, etc., etc., etc., ad infinitum.
