Late night comedian Trevor Noah criticized CNN’s Jim Acosta Thursday after the White House correspondent belittled Kim Kardashian and her meeting with President Trump the day before.

“Really? She shouldn’t be here? You think Kim Kardashian brings down Donald Trump’s Oval Office?” Noah asked. “Is that what you think? What could she do to make him worse than he already is? What could she do?”

The host of The Daily Show went on to joke about the meeting, saying that “I’m not surprised to see Kim Kardashian meeting with with Donald Trump. They have so much in common, both reality stars, big on social media, [and] Kanye loves both of them.”

The Kardashian star met with the president lobbying for the pardon of Alice Johnson. Johnson, 62, spent the last 21 years in jail for a non-violent drug charge. (RELATED: Acosta Sanctimoniously Rants Against The President, Kim Kardashian)

“It just gets to the lack of seriousness,” Acosta said on Wednesday from the White House. “Forget about the fact that Kim Kardashian is here at the White House today and what planet that is anything resembling normal — because it’s not,” he asserted. “She shouldn’t be here talking about prison reform. It’s very nice that she is here, but that’s not a serious thing to have happened here at the White House.”
