“Let’s get right to the big scandal that is rocking America’s first family,” announced Trevor Noah on Wednesday night’s edition of The Daily Show.
No, the comedy host wasn’t referring to Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with a Russian attorney during the election campaign in an attempt to obtain damaging intel on opponent Hillary Clinton, or Don Jr.’s recent tweeting out of emails confirming the nature of that suspicious meeting.

Noah, meanwhile, was tickled by the initial justification: that the lines were sugar from Dylan’s Candy Bar.

It is as expensive as cocaine. People lose their homes because of that place. Families have been destroyed. People walk around on the streets like, ‘Hey man, you got some gummy bears?
