On Wednesday night's Daily Show, Trevor Noah caught House Speaker Paul Ryan trying to share responsibility for writing the House GOP's health-care bill with President Trump — a move Noah found risible if understandable, given that Trump will likely blame Ryan for the legislation if it fails, as seems likely at this point.
