In just a day before the final results of the 2019 general elections were to be released, a video of Trevor Noah slamming at EFF leader Julius Malema on his American TV show, The Daily Show, has gone viral.

The Daily show presenter’s comments drew mixed reaction on social media and saw him heading straight to South Africa’s trend list.
Trevor just played videos of the things Julius Maleka SAID WITH HIS OWN MOUTH. Lol things that are on YouTube for Christ sakes, things y’all applaud Julius for saying here. Now Trevor is the bad guy? 😂

Trevor Noah is now being used by the US to disseminate Propaganda against our own African leaders? He's actually doing more damage to our African reputation by perpuating African stereotypes. Julius Malema is not my fave but this is unacceptable, all this for a few white laughs? https://t.co/D6gpfj1Zlt

The video was published on The Daily Show’s Twitter account and immediately captured the attention of many after Noah referred to Malema as a “popular anti-establishment politician”.

1. Julius Malema said all those hilarious things.
2. Trevor Noah is a comedian whose job is to make jokes and not a South African ambassador.
Leave the dude alone!
