          Trevor is not really debating right. He just doesn't get mad because he never engages in true debates. He fires off some jokes and asks a few critical questions. Then he states some progressive points and the audience claps. He never really dares to dive into any topic or debate. It's not really needed on his show. He knows his audience doesn't really seek debates or other opinions. He just needs to say a few things and that will convince his whole audience. The other side doesn't matter. The other side could have a great point and still Trevor would easily win the debate as he never gives them the time to truly expand on the point and if they try he has a few jokes ready to stop any progress.

          It's not clever. He just truly does not understand or care much about politics overall.

            Mate, the Socratic method of questioning is virtually dead. It's been killed by all the people who simply ignore the question you asked and answer an entirely different one. Bad faith debaters simply will not play this game with you. And as I've mentioned before, teaching people how to "win arguments" without ever mentioning whether they're, you know, right in the first place is not necessarily good for society.

              Can you please do a video on Taylor Swift? She seems like a nice enough person but she has a lot of haters. I find some of her songs enjoyable but I don't consider myself "fanatical" about her so I don't understand the hate.

                        Commenting the Socratic Method with how not to make enemies seems pretty hillarious.

                          True. Probably more: "Don't look like a moron towards neutral outsider".

                          Hemlock (Socrates) and rope (Noah) still await everyone challenging reactionary beliefs from those who hate critical thought.

                              A method, a good one. There are many methods and some work better in various situations. I could learn from this. I will watch it several times to absorb it.

                                  That's the exact reason I find Trevor Noah inadequate. I actually was really disappointed with this performance with Tomi Lahren

                                        A lot of assumptions here. Harder to take the video seriously when realizing that.

                                          I would avoid using but and instead use "yes, now..." Along with downward inflection chin down upward gaze. Works better to elicit thought and contemplation towards a new direction. Just a suggestion that has been helpful for me.

                                                Trevor not only successfully has a conversation instead of an argument with his guests, he also gets me to think about what I believe. His life experience is so different, his point of view is much more worldly.

                                                            You often can't calm someone down by cracking a joke, I mean it is possible for sure, however not how trevor does it mostly, which is often meant as ridicule

As far as I can see TN isn't genuine, TN doesn't argue in good faith. At 3:05 the joke is not a good thing. It's destroying her argument without refuting her evidence or logic. He's in front of his home crowd and it's not even funny or cleaver. Making a joke out of something someone said ups the ante for a fight because it belittles the other person and their argument. I hate it when people do it to me, so I don't do it to them because I enter every discussion/argument with good intentions. I argue fairly. I argue in good faith.

                                                                                        • Jazmin Bautista
