"Daily Show" host Trevor Noah Monday night detailed the media clusterfuck surrounding the 2016 candidates' campaigning in New York City over the weekend.

"After a week of watching the campaign circus come to town ... there's something that's been bugging me," Noah said. "It's that the news spends so much time focusing on what candidates eat, and the jokes they tell, and if they seem fun to hang out with."

"I think this is the problem America finds itself in," he continued. "Voters need a brilliant policy mind that can address serious problems. But, at the same time, Americans just kind of want a leader who's a fun best friend."

Noah's suggestion: "This November, Americans must elect both a president and a mascot."
