‘It’s All About the Subtext:’ Trevor Noah Breaks Down the Democratic Town Hall

Last night, Trevor Noah broke down CNN’s Town Hall to examine the Democratic candidates’ last-effort appeals to shake things up before the Iowa caucus. While Noah acknowledged that town halls were “like a rap battle against no one,” he expressed appreciation for a chance outside of the debate format for the candidates to elaborate on their positions.

After Noah ribbed at Bernie Sanders and Martin O’Malley over their respective performances, he turned his attention towards Hillary Clinton turning up the heat, pointing to some of her more awkward moments in the spotlight. When Noah arrived at Clinton being cornered by the question about her honesty, he particularly pointed to how her response was passionate, but also appeared like she was about to boil over on the inside.

“She’s restrained, but you can feel on the inside she’s taking off her earrings,” Noah said. “It’s all in the subtext,” he continued, and from there, he showed the clip again with his take on how Clinton really thought about the question (spoiler alert: its quite catty).
