Noah derided the SoulCycle and Equinox company chairman’s recent boast while examining liberals’ calls to boycott both fitness franchises following news that Ross was hosting a Hamptons fundraiser for Trump and charging $100,000 for a photo opportunity and lunch and $250,000 to participate in a roundtable discussion.
“OK, let’s get something straight: If you’re hosting a fundraiser for Donald Trump, I don’t know if you can call yourself a ‘champion’ of racial equality and inclusion,” Noah said.
“You can call yourself a part-time participant of racial equality. You can call yourself a dabbler of racial equality. You know? Not a champion! You’re not a champion!” he added. “Like, if racial equality was a sport, you’d be playing pick-up games.”
