Trevor Noah opened his special live edition of The Daily Show by saying it made sense that the third and final presidential debate was held in Las Vegas. “This was America’s night to let loose before she settles down and makes a commitment to one person.” He said the whole thing was just like a bachelorette party “except the giant dildo was on stage behind the podium.”
“When the debate started, Trump was strong, stuck to his positions pretty well,” Noah said. “He even found new ways of expressing himself,” he added, before cutting to a clip of Trump’s “bad hombres” moment. Noah jokingly imagined Mexican-Americans sitting at home thinking, “Trump calls us criminals and rapists but he says ‘hombres.’ Maybe we’re not different after all.”
As for Trump calling Hillary Clinton a “puppet,” Noah joked, “Trump thinks all women are puppets, that’s why he’s trying to stick his hand up them.”
But it was Trump’s refusal to say that he will accept the results of the election that unnerved Noah more than anything else. “I’m sorry, keep us in ‘suspense?’” Noah asked. “Am I the only one super freaked out by this?”
“What do you mean you’ll keep us in suspense?” he added. “Trump is going to run his campaign like an episode of Scandal, only with less black people and less women in power and less understanding of politics. But other than that, exactly like Scandal.”
“Am I the only one who thinks that’s horrifying?” he asked.
Nope, Hillary Clinton agrees.
