The Daily Show mocks 2016 presidential hopefuls for comically inept pandering to millennials

Presidential elections are the "ultimate contest to find the toughest leader, the quickest thinker, and of course, the old person who is best at pretending to like young-people things," Trevor Noah said on Tuesday's Daily Show. He started with Marco Rubio declaring his affinity with West Coast rap, but spent most of his time talking about Hillary Clinton and Ben Carson.

First up was the Ben Carson-Kanye West lovefest: "Look, I understand the need to pander, but I don't think you two even know who you're pandering to," Noah said. But if Carson and Kanye don't have much in common, Clinton and Lena Dunham are a more sensible pander-match. Not that Noah is impressed with most of Clinton's pander prowess. The one exception, involving Lenny Kravitz, makes the end of this video not quite safe for work. Peter Weber
