The Daily Social Distancing show by Trevor Noah recently acknowledged the crisis of covid-19 cases mounting day by day in Europe. Flabbergasted in the ongoing election bustles, the pandemic seems to take a backseat. However, the latest session with the New York Governor Andrew Cuomo proved to be a productive discussion. Noah’s interactive session was primarily targetted to address the state’s coronavirus response and it’s future as detailed in his new book “American Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic.
The prior sessions held by Noah set the backdrop for this discussion where he analysed the indifference of the leaders towards the mounting cases of COVID-19. He expressed his objection against the statement by Rudi Gilani, the lawyer of President Donald Trump where he stated that ‘People don’t die of this disease anymore”. Along with this a healthy criticism was directed towards President Donald Trump’s comment “The threat was non-existent”.
