WATCH: Trevor Noah Takes on Pope Mania in First Daily Show - 'He's Like a Young Bernie Sanders'

Well, it's certainly strange to see a new face behind the desk of the Daily Show but thus far Jon Stewart's replacement, Trevor Noah, seems fairly cool as the host of the newly-minted Daily Show. First Noah paid tribute to the former host:


"Jon Stewart was more than just a host, he was our refuge, our voice, and in many ways our political dad." Noah said. "And now it's weird because dad has left. And now it feels like the family has a new stepdad.... and he's black."

In another segment, Noah has some fun with recent Pope mania, noting that Francis' take on immigration, poverty and climate change make him a veritable "young Bernie Sanders."
