Trevor Noah shared some of his reactions to the ongoing 2018 midterms.
Noah began his live show by telling his audience that he was “hella nervous” but now that the votes are in and it’s official… that Idris Elba is People Magazine‘s Sexiest Man Alive.
The Daily Show host pivoted to the actual elections, which he said would decide “Is America racist or is it openly racist?”
“It was touch and go for a little while today,” Noah said. “The Blue Wave was looking more like a Smurf that was peeing.”
He lamented about how stressful the anticipation was leading to the results, but ultimately declared that the Democrats have taken the House of Representatives, causing his audience to roar with cheers.
“Wow, you guys are almost as excited as Rachel Maddow,” Noah reacted. “When she heard the news, she just exploded into a pile of ‘I Voted’ stickers.”
Noah then acknowledged some of the “firsts” to come out of this year’s midterms, like Democratic candidate Jared Polis becoming the first elected openly-gay governor the first Muslim women elected to congress, Democrats Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan as well as the first two Native American women, Deb Haaland and Sharice Davids. However, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) attempted to crash on their glory.
