Trevor Noah Destroys Those Criticizing Obama For Crying About Sandy Hook (Video)

On Tuesday, in what will likely be characterized as one of the most impassioned speeches of his tenure, President Obama announced executive actions he's taking to reduce gun violence.

At one point, the president began to cry as he recalled the tragic mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012, which ultimately left 20 children dead.

Many were evidently touched by the president's public display of emotion -- but not everyone was impressed.

Andrea Tantaros of Fox News even accused President Obama of faking his tears, suggesting he used "raw onion" to cry.

On Wednesday night, Trevor Noah gave these naysayers a piece of his mind during what was arguably his most articulate and powerful segment since he began hosting "The Daily Show."

Noah played a clip of the moment the president began to cry and said,

Then, he showed a clip of Tantaros, among others, criticizing and taunting the president for getting emotional. This is where things got really good as Noah had some choice words for these individuals.

He said,

Indeed, while people may disagree with President Obama's approach to the issue of gun violence, it's fairly ridiculous and inhumane to mock him for crying about the deaths of innocent children.

After all, even Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump defended the president in this regard. During a phone interview on "Fox & Friends" on Wednesday, Trump said,

Trevor Noah's thoughts on the negative reactions to Obama's tears were spot on.
