London: Comedian Trevor Noah hilariously replies to British racists who were offended by Rishi Sunak, a non-white person of Indian origin, becoming prime minister of the United Kingdom. The host of The Daily Show Trevor Noah said Rishi Sunak, will serve well.

He said, “Rishi Sunak, who is just 42, will probably serve well into his 42-and-a-halves.”

“Let’s not forget another important first. he is also the first prime minister who is an absolute snack,” Noah said.

He said that not everyone is happy about Rishi becoming PM of the UK. He played a clip from a British radio. In the clip, a caller explained why a non-white person becoming the PM of the UK is not a good thing.

“Can you imagine me becoming Prime Minister of Pakistan? People of England would like to see someone who looks like them,” the caller said.

Taking a hysterical swipe at this, Noah said, “This is a good point. Can you imagine white English people trying to rule countries where no one looks like them!”

He further added that British people are looking at it the wrong way and that Rishi becoming the PM is a good thing.

“This could be a good thing for you people. After 400 years, you finally get to legitimately blame a brown person for your country’s problems. You’re living the dream!” Noah said.

Sunak, who was elected as Britain’s third prime minister this year and the first person of color to lead the former imperial power, promised to end the economic catastrophe brought on by Liz Truss’ disastrous 49-day presidency.

The former chancellor of the exchequer made a high-stakes gamble. He launched an attack that helped to end Boris Johnson’s premiership, put himself forward as his replacement, but ultimately lost to Liz Truss. Admitting defeat, he retreated to the parliamentary back benches.

He lost to Liz Truss in September, but she resigned six weeks later. In the latest leadership contest, Sunak racked up the support of his fellow MPs early, and fast.
