Trevor Noah skewers Baltimore police for alleged drug-planting videos

With his tongue placed firmly in his cheek, “The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah floated a theory about Baltimore’s black-market economy on Thursday night’s episode on Comedy Central.

“I’m starting to wonder if the entire drug business in Baltimore is just cops buying drugs to plant them,” Noah said.

Baltimore police body-camera videos were the subject of the show’s main segment Thursday, when Noah presented two clips that have called into question if city officers have planted drugs on criminal defendants.

Both videos are under investigation, according to police.
