Joe Biden played Slowly on his phone at a campaign rally in Florida. The internet quickly popped down and screamed about pandering.
“What you did not see is the context,” Noah remarked. Biden had just been introduced by Luis Fonsi, the lead singer of the song, who talked about “how the song turned out in this country, we are not defined by our differences.”
The Trump camp had fun with the Biden clip, which replaced the NWA’s classic F ** k Tha Police as the song the former VP played.
Noah used this as a teaching element and warned that the next time you get angry about something you see online, stop and breathe. “This is a reminder, before you get mad at something you see online, take a Despacito.”
As Noah continued, he was talking about ABC City Hall, where Trump was talking about face masks, and wearing it is a sore point with many.
Noah took the problem. “Why does the president of a country with the highest mortality rate in the world still give people space to be in doubt about wearing masks?”
