Trevor Noah: If It's Trump vs. Clinton, 'Maybe You Shouldn't Have an Election'

Trevor Noah is convinced that the American populace is “getting into a marriage it’s going to regret” whether it elects Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump as Barack Obama’s successor.

The Daily Show host slammed both the Republican and Democratic nominees on Wednesday in a blistering takedown that referred to them as “Grandma Nixon” and a “traffic cone soaked in raw sewage.” After joking that the decision would be a real Sophie’s Choice, the befuddled comedian suggested that the U.S. skip November’s election altogether if its presidential contenders are a candidate where “just about everything she’s told us for the past year has been a lie,” and a man who thinks it’s okay to praise the work of genocidal dictators like former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein.

“I’m going to be that a—hole friend who tells it like it is — maybe you need to call it off,” he said. “Two years from now you’re going to see your ex walking down the street and you’re going to think to yourself, ‘Man, I didn’t know how good I had it.'”
