WATCH: Jordan Klepper Exposes the Canadian 'Freedom Convoy's Wildest Conspiracies

  • Jordan Klepper was hoping to experience "Canada Nice" at the trucker protests in Ottawa, Canada, known as the "Freedom Convoy" by those on the right, but instead, he found a slapdash group of conspiracy theorists. In a new segment for The Daily Show, Klepper spoke with many of the truckers, who appear to be "appropriating" American conspiracies, from QAnon to "Agenda 2030," a theory about government-sanctioned mass sterilization.

    After hearing from a host of truckers, the theme of the protest emerged: "Make North America Great Again," two told Klepper. Of course, the "Fingers the Pulse" host wasn't too surprised by this development. "A well-funded, never-ending street part infused with misinformation and nationalism seems remarkably possible in our own Land of the Free," he concluded.

    The Daily Show with Trevor Noah airs weeknights at 11:00 PM ET on Comedy Central.
