"Bernie Sanders slipped a molly into her campaign": Trevor Noah knocks Hillary in his sharpest bit in weeks

"The Hillary Clinton who sucked up to Wall Street and voted to invade Iraq is running on a platform of equality"

"Daily Show" host Trevor Noah catches a lot of flak -- from this and other publications -- for failing to even come close to meeting his predecessor Jon Stewart's standards of passionate, substantive political criticism.

Last night, however, Noah was the only late-night host to call out Hillary Clinton for the Wall Street Democrat she is. Needless to say, for what many #TCOTs have called a "Berniebro troll," it was a cathartic experience.


Super Tuesday was a "huge night for someone not named Donald Trump," Noah began, rolling clips of pundits touting Clinton's successful showings in seven states. "So nice to see a decades-long plan for global domination come together."

On paper, Bernie Sanders had a lackluster showing, winning only four states. However, thus far in the Democratic primary, Noah explained, "It's been Bernie who's set the agenda. He's made Hillary more of the candidate that people want to vote for."

"The Hillary Clinton who sucked up to Wall Street and voted to invade Iraq is running on a platform of equality, love, and kindness," Noah said. "It's like Bernie Sanders slipped a molly into her campaign."
