Roy Wood Jr. Breaks Out the Trump Tweet Crystal Ball to Predict the Future on ‘The Daily Show’

Here’s a clip from last night’s Daily Show, where Trevor Noah welcomes correspondent Roy Wood Jr. as a revered Jamaican fortune teller named Sir Ahnrop who uses old tweets from Donald Trump to predict the future. Considering pretty much everything Trump has done — from playing way too much golf since he became president to attacking Syria — directly contradicts tweets he’s posted in the past, Sir Ahnrop gives a special shout-out to sharks and Michael Douglas and warns them that their turn might be next. And why, exactly, is Wood posing as a Jamaican oracle named Sir Ahnrop? “Look, it’s about branding. You can’t be a fortune teller and be named Roy,” Wood tells Noah. “Sir Ahnrop tells the future. Roy’s a mechanic with a scratch-off lottery ticket problem.”
