Trevor Noah tore into Russia on Thursday’s (Aug. 4) episode of The Each day Present with Trevor Noah, simmering over the information of Brittney Griner’s sentencing. After the WNBA star was discovered responsible of drug smuggling and sentenced to 9 years in jail by a Russian courtroom yesterday, Noah blasted the nation and its authorized system.

“That is some bullshit. That is bullshit,” he started. “Everyone knows Russia doesn’t care about what Brittney Griner did.”

Noah continued, “This is similar nation that’s breaking each human rights legislation on the planet,” earlier than launching right into a Russian accent and including, “however they’re like, ‘That girl has vape cartridge, yeah, she’s actual legal!’ Get the fuck outta right here, man.”

He then repeated, “It’s bullshit, everyone knows it,” earlier than shifting to a barely extra constructive tone.

“The one piece of fine information, it appears like, is that this looks like it’s only a negotiation tactic,” Noah stated, including, “Whoever America has in jail, ship them to Russia.
