Now "The Daily Show" goes after Hillary Clinton? Thanks for nothing, Trevor Noah!

She's now the presumptive nominee, so "The Daily Show" realizes her politics have problems. Little late!

"Daily Show" host Trevor Noah last night skewered Hillary Clinton in a game show called "This Should Be Easy," referring to the Democratic frontrunner's off-message and otherwise historically inaccurate gaffes.

Clinton's revisionist assertion -- made at Nancy Reagan's funeral last week -- that the Reagans started a national dialogue about AIDS earned her zero points. Instead, Noah said, "The correct answer was any other combination of words."

"There are so many nice things she could have said about Nancy Reagan, but for some reason she brought up the worst thing," he continued. "Hillary, you need the LGBT community. They're the people who started the discussion on AIDS. And because they're active Democratic voters, they should be your natural ally."

Clinton similarly earned goose eggs for misremembering that Bernie Sanders was literally right behind her fighting for healthcare reform in the '90s, and for promising to put a lot of coal miners out of business with her renewable energy proposals.

"At the end of the game, Hillary has scored zero points," Noah concluded. "And yet she's still moving on to the next round."
