"Donald trump is in Saudi Arabia right now giving a speech on Islam. That's like the kid that got another kid to do the book report. When he gets off the plane he's like what are all the ninjas doing here" Trevor Noah Islamic Relief Canada 10 year anniversary.
"I come to you with greetings of peace and blessing, and prayers of protection from the immense envy from your neighbours south of the border.
