Trevor Noah to GOP: Taking Nomination away from Trump Won’t End Well

‘The Republicans think that after Trump has ignited all this passion and anger in America, that they can just swoop in and take the nomination away from him?’

NOAH: the only reason i bring this up is because despite trump’s 19 primary wins and 7.5 million votes so far, the republican party is still dead set on taking this away from him. they keep talking about a contested convention, which would look like this. >> here’s how it works. in the first round, most delegates are bound to vote for the candidate they represent. but if there’s no clear winner, they keep voting and delegates are freed up to pick whoever they want. that’s when things get messy. >> trevor: messy? no, no, a baby with a boafl cheerios is messy. a contest convention, including trump, would be a port-o-potty at a burning man mixed with a human centipede mob buckets. ( laughter ) but despite that, despite that, the other republican candidates— oh, they think it’s good. they’re talking like this. >> if he doesn’t have the right numbers, then we’re in a multiballot convention. who— what’s the big deal about that other than it’s exciting? think about how much education our kids are going to get about the way in which we pick a president. i think it will be very cool. >> trevor: “i think it will be very cool to see this country burn down.” you would be unleashing the kraken. do you have any idea what a contested convention would mean? it turns out, donald trump, well, he has a preview. >> i think you’d have riots. i’m representing a tremendous, many, many medicine of people. you disenfranchise those people and say, “i’m sorry, but you’re 100 votes shorts, even though the next one is 500 votes short,” i think you would have problems like you’ve never seen before. i really do. i think bad things would happen. i believe that. i wouldn’t lead it, but i believe bad things would happen. >> trevor: trump sounds luke a fortune teller who is going to make it happen him. “i very bad things in your future because i’m going to be there.” ( laughter ) that’s not a prediction. it’s a promise. just think about it. trump supporters are already kicking the (bleep) out of people, and that’s when they’re winning. and the Republicans think that after Trump has ignited all this passion and anger in America, that they can just swoop in and take the nomination away from him? this is not going to end well. and the signs, my friends are, everywhere. >> after last night’s big wins in florida, north carolina, illinois, and missouri, trump has 666 delegates now. ( laughter ) ( applause ) >> trevor: trump, 666. i bet even the devil is going, “oooh, that’s bad.”
