In a historic moment, President Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, winning praise from Jews and making haters who call him a “Nazi” eat their words once again.
But South African comedian Trevor Noah was more concerned about Trump’s teeth. “President Trump is wearing dentures, people!” Noah declared.
Noah claimed Trump had slurred his words when announcing that the U.S. will recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. This is something numerous American presidents have promised to do over the decades, but failed to deliver.
Trump sounded a bit tired and dry-mouthed when he said Wednesday: “Today we finally acknowledge the obvious: that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital. This is nothing more or less than a recognition of reality.”
Noah seized on the historic moment to make the pettiest of observations: That a 71-year-old man might wear dentures. Because we all know that Democrats don’t wear dentures, right?
Noah, who has slammed Trump for commenting on people’s looks, then guffawed: “Think about it: fake teeth, fake hair, fake tan. There’s no part of [Trump’s] body that’s real!”
Realizing that he offended millions of people who use dentures, as well as countless Hollywood celebrities who wear wigs, fake tans and get plastic surgery, Noah backpedaled. He said it’s okay for everyone else to use dentures, but not Trump.
“By the way, there’s no shame in having dentures,” Noah said. “But there is shame in Donald Trump having dentures, because he’s vain as hell!”
Trump announces that the U.S. will recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and all hell breaks loose between his tongue and teeth. #DentureDonald

White House rep Raj Shah told the L.A. Times Trump does not use dentures, and said he slurred his words because his mouth was dry. “His throat was dry,” Shah said. “There’s nothing to it.”
Noah then egged his fans on to cyber-bully the president of the United States.
“Can you imagine how he would feel if people started tweeting #DentureDonald?” Noah asked. “Don’t do it! I’m just saying, can you imagine how he’d feel? But don’t do it, guys! He’s very sensitive, okay?!”
That’s hilarious, Trevor! Now do Hillary:
