Late-night host Trevor Noah is being mercilessly mocked for turning against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo just months after repeatedly declaring himself a “Cuomosexual.”
After the disgraced politician finally resigned Tuesday, Noah quickly tweeted that “New York has successfully flattened the perv.”
But rather than the expected laughter, his tweet instead just sparked a flood of followers reminding him of his earlier declarations of devotion to the scandal-scarred gov.
“This you?” asked Accuracy in Media, a site exposing media bias, one of many to share clips of “The Daily Show” host’s previous confessions.
One widely shared clip from April last year showed Noah, 37, calling Cuomo “the one governor who’s crushing it the most right now.”
“Yeah. People online are falling in love with him. And I’m not gonna lie. Those people include me. My Tinder profile now lists me as Cuomosexual,” Noah said.
Others re-shared an interview Noah gave Ellen DeGeneres the same month sharing his love.
“Everyone should be a Cuomosexual,” he told DeGeneres. “You should love a leader who engages the people and remembers that they’re serving the people.”
Even Noah himself joined in the mocking, retweeting a March clip in which he conceded the error of his ways in so vigorously backing the handsy gov.
“I’ll tell you, man, all those people who praised Cuomo so highly last year, whew — those people really don’t look so smart now,” he said — pretending to shout off-camera, “Delete the f—ing tapes!”
“I mean, it must be so embarrassing, can you imagine if you’re one of those people?” he added, pretending to laugh — then again shouting off-camera, “Just burn them! I don’t give a s–t, burn them!”
