is perplexed as to what Republicans
They were upset about mask mandates at first, and they are now upset about how those mandates are being phased out.
“This reaction is a little strange, man,” Noah said on “The Daily Show
” on Monday night, before adding:
“Because Republicans have been complaining about mask rules for months, and now they're upset that the mask rules are being relaxed? What? It's like Mariah Carey being upset because she got you for Christmas. No, Mariah, you said this was all you wanted.”
However, Noah saved his most venomous retort for Rep. Jim Jordan
(R-Ohio), who claimed without evidence that the CDC
's announcement that vaccinated people
can remove their masks
was based on polling rather than science.
“Well, if Jim Jordan believes this is a coverup, I believe him because Jim Jordan knows a lot about coverups,” Noah said.
That was a not-so-subtle reference to allegations that Jordan, as an assistant wrestling coach at Ohio State University, was aware of molestation allegations against the team's doctor but did nothing about it. Although Jordan denies the allegations, multiple athletes from his time on the team have since come forward to corroborate the story.
