Wow... that Rihanna segment was a TOTAL waste of time... Quite possibly the lamest segment in Daily Show history.

I actually watched Ashton Kutcher's speech when it came out, and it's actually a really good one, and was widely shared on the internet. The target audience was teens which fits with a high school graduation, but doesn't mean it's ok to steal of course 😅 and surely a high school principal should be capable of writing a speech

Hey!....HEY! Ashton is a HERO!!! For real for real! He’s worked WONDERS in his drive to fight sex trafficking! In regards toRihanna’s name, people have always HEARD her say it like, “red-Anna”, but we all just assumed it was due to her accent. She’s not that big a part of my life on a day to day basis so it’s likely I’ll STILL just call her RIHANNA. 🤣 She’ll never know. 🤷🏽‍♀️ Plus, I think the “wrong” way sounds better, imo.

Hi Trevor, you got it wrong. The "magic dildos" we have on the Red Square is a secret Soviet-era weapon designed to use on The Pentagon building, whatever bodily opening of yet... Virginia it represents:)

In conclusion, College is a complete RIP! you get an F in English if you plagiarize your work from someone else, but if you're the Principal can do it at the graduation ceremony.

Dear LGBT, If you don’t want to be treated differently for being gay, then stop acting like being gay somehow makes you special. Your sexual orientation is neither an achievement nor a holiday. You have not accomplished anything simply by being attracted to one sex or another.

This show is so dumb. All around the world no one is celebrating pride month. In fact, you could argue it's only in very select parts of US. Yes, people should be more u understanding but you can't just say whatever.

Deal with it, Trevor. Riri wants everybody to pronounce her name the French way. With a pass on the French "R". Not too cruel. It is not like if you have to pronounce "Kanye" the French way, you would have been really outraged.

Made props to Russia for not being pressured into this fag play.
You can pronounce it both Rihanna and Reeanna and no one can tell the difference unless you put an emphasis on the first "A". If you pronounce the first "A" more subtle without emphasis then people hear what they want to hear. Plus the spelling "Rihanna" doesn't help you hear Reeanna either.

Really?! If you re going to call out Russia for being anti LGBTQ, you should go all the way and name the other countries where LGBTQ people are stoned to death. But they wont do it, because like everybody knows that would be Islamophobic!
