Trevor Noah wasted no time on laying into authorities waste on Tuesday’s The Each day Social Distancing Present.
Noah used his monologue to ridicule the federal Paycheck Safety Program. Meant to assist small companies by means of the pandemic, this system’s $342 billion mysteriously disappeared “faster than Rudy Giuliani in direct sunlight,” in accordance with Noah.
That’s an odd improvement since, when Congress later funded one other $310 billion for a similar objective, few small companies might entry this system’s web site and even fewer obtained funding.
So the place did the unique $342 billion go? And the way did it get handed out, if the web site didn’t work?
In response to The Each day Social Distancing Present, $870 million of it went to huge, publicly traded firms, together with Ruth’s Chris Steak Home, Shake Shack and the Los Angeles Lakers, a sports activities franchise worth $four billion.
This occurred as a result of the Treasury Division left the disbursal of funds to banks, they usually did what banks do says Noah: “They screw over the little guy.”
Living proof: A latest CBS report that estimates practically 90% of minority and female-owned companies shall be shut out of the PPP.
“How come every time the government builds a website, it immediately crashes?”
