"Daily Show" host Trevor Noah took the mainstream media to task for their apparent bias towards Hillary Clinton and her likely general election opponent, Donald Trump.

"It's sad but true -- it's not looking good for Bernie Sanders," Noah said. "But ... that doesn't excuse what happened (Tuesday) night on all the cable news networks, nobody showed Bernie's speech. In fact, while Bernie Sanders was delivering his address, CNN, Fox (News) and MSNBC chose instead to keep their camera's locked on Trump's empty podium."

"Trump hysteria is at a point where even his furniture gets new coverage," he added. "At his next speech, Bernie should just come out dressed as Trump's podium."

In addition to blasting podium-coverage, Noah paid his last respects to the fallen candidates, pouring three mini Poland Spring bottles on the ground for the dead homie. Unfortunately, he capped off the gag with a Flint joke that didn't sit right with the audience.

"Don't worry, Flint, Michigan, we're not wasting the water," Noah said, revealing an off-screen bucket to collect the water he poured out.

Noah won the audience back, though, with the safest go-to there is -- a supercut of Donald Trump's victory speech.

"Trump's popularity has never been much about sense," he explained. "He's tapping into voters' frustration, which he's not necessarily responsible for.

"Donald Trump didn't invent racism. Trump didn't invent Islamophobia. And he didn't invent violence. All he did was put his name on them like he does everything else."
