Trevor Noah Skewers the Democratic Debate (VIDEO)

Trevor Noah reviewed the Democratic candidates by pointing out their most bizarre debate moments Wednesday night.


Noah drilled down each candidate's list of flaws and missteps but it seemed clear his favorite part (and my personal favorite as well) was when Clinton dismissed Lincoln Chafee entirely out of hand. 

Noah played a clip of Chafee directly calling into question Clinton's ethics, when debate host Anderson Cooper asked if she would like to respond, the former Secretary simply smiled and said, "no." 

"Damn, that's cold," Noah said, grimacing. "That has to be the most brutal shooting down of a person named Lincoln since -- sorry, never mind. Too soon?"
