Daily Show new host Trevor Noah took on what he called the latest political “panderdemic” on Tuesday, saying that neither Ben Carson nor rapper Kanye West know who they’re trying to win over by gushing over one another.
“Kanye, man, do your research — you can’t just look for the black guy,” Noah said. “You’re picking a president, not who’s on your basketball team.”
Noah also played an audio clip of Carson, who has outpaced expectations in the GOP presidential field, saying that hip-hop was causing black communities to “continue to deteriorate.”
“I’m sure Dr. Ben Carson can find something he likes about hip-hop,” the host continued. “For example, the rampant homophobia. See? You guys have more in common than you think — no homo.”
