Thinking big about this year’s winners, Elon Musk, and people over the past year, including Mark Zuckerberg, Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani, Noah asked: “Why does the Person of the Year award always go to the weirdest person?”
He added: “Sometimes I wonder if the aliens are coming down, I don’t know if I want these people to represent our race. You know, the aliens would be like, [in robot voice] “Your species needs to be exterminated.”
Despite his banter, Noah agrees that Musk’s win was well-deserved.
Listing the billionaire’s accomplishments, he continued: “Honestly, you can’t argue with this. I mean, the richest person in the world who also controls space, crypto, and electric cars? Ha. I mean, who would even come in second? Like maybe Pete Davidson? ”
Noah’s thoughts come at the same time as Musk’s ex-partner Grimes seems to have obscured Musk’s victory. On Twitter, the singer shared a magazine cover photo and tweeted, “And he cut his hair for this one too – the icon,” she tweeted, adding three sword emojis. “
