The only place you'd be giving a fancy speech is Cell Block D," Noah on the fate Hillary has apparently dodged

"Daily Show" host Trevor Noah Tuesday night covered FBI Director James Comey's recommended non-indictment of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton regarding her use of a private server to move around classified emails.

"Wherever Hillary was when she was watching this, I can tell you right now, she was packing up her life," Noah said, referring to Comey's televised announcement. "There's no campaign after this if you were indicted. There's no first woman president. The only place you'd be giving a fancy speech is Cell Block D."


Despite determining that those implicated were "extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information," Comey recommended no charges be brought against the former-Secretary of State nor anyone at the State Department.

"That is where your election has gotten to right now, when the good news is that one of your presidential candidates — the rational one, by the way — will not be going to jail at this time," Noah said. "Not being indicted should never ever be your good news. You're running for president, not the coolest dude in the barbershop."
