Minhaj returns as this week’s rotating host of The Daily Show where he was a correspondent for five years.
He argues that rich people like Scott Adams end up saying awful things because they are bored with their lives.
Minhaj said Adams is a prime example of “a certain type of rich person.” They have no problems of their own, so they invent new ones just to make their own lives interesting.
“I can guarantee you: J.K. Rowling had zero opinions about trans people when she was on welfare,” he said. He suggested a wealth tax would solve the problem.
“Rich people, this is for your own good,” he said. “The wealth tax is actually a shut-the-fuck-up tax.”
“Spend more time working, kissing your loved ones, getting groceries ― y’know, being a normal person,” he said. “Because normal people don’t hate Black people. We’re all too busy hating that one squeaky wheel on the shopping cart.”
