Comedy Central late-night host Trevor Noah attacked disgraced former FBI agent Peter Strzok for setting up a GoFundMe page to help him pay his legal bills on Thursday night.
“OK, first up, this is some bullshit we need to address about GoFundMe in general. How do people say, ‘This is the amount I need,’ and change the amount when they get it?” He asked.
“That’s not a thing,” he continued. “Like, imagine you met someone on the street and they’re like, ‘Hey man, can you help me out? I need $50 to go see my family.’ You’re like, ‘OK, here, here.’ He like, ‘Now that I’ve reached $50, I now need $100 to see my family.’ You’ll be like, ‘What the f**k are you doing, man?'”
Strzok, who was fired Friday over anti-Trump text messages he sent in 2016 and 2017, initially sought $150,000 to help pay for legal bills and lost income. That number rose to $350,000 and then again to $500,000 after the donations continued coming in. (RELATED: Peter Strzok Fired For Anti-Trump Texts)
As of Thursday night, Strzok’s page has raised over $425,000, which is approaching his half-a-million goal. During that same time period, over 11,000 people have donated to the cause with the highest donation being $2,000.
Noah continued, “This is a scam! Because, seriously, half-a-million dollars on a GoFundMe just for hating Donald Trump! There are cancer patients on that site that are like, ‘Hey, we hate him, too. Can you pay for my treatments?'”
