His brother talks about their mom and grand mom

Trevor, during his show The Daily Show, talked about his family between the scene where he talked about how his mom isn’t about fame and the memory power of his 91 years old grandmom. 

He started with his mom’s hatred of food fights.

She would ask him to turn the movie off. 

Whenever he used to watch high school movies where there used to fight for food in the cafeteria, his mom would be like, “turn it off, turn it off,” he recalled.

Why are they wasting food? We are starving in Africa.
