“The Daily Show” took on the water crisis in Flint, Michigan on Thursday’s episode with host Trevor Noah giving his simple rule regarding water safety: “If the water is browner than me, I don’t drink it.”
“You know what they say, things could always be worse,” Noah said. “Or as they say in Flint, Michigan, things could always be like this.”
A state of emergency was declared last week after it came to light that lead was in the city’s drinking water.
“I have a very simple rule in life: If the water is browner than me, I don’t drink it,” Noah said.
Officials said the decision was an effort to save money.
“That’s like saying, ‘An airbag? What am I made of money? I’ll just drive around with a bunch of party balloons!’ It’s your life, it’s people lives,” Noah continued.
