Monday night was Election Eve, and Trevor Noah was ready to fire up the holograms — well, almost — for The Daily Show's election coverage. "Now you can tell that these midterms are some of the most important in recent history, because America is leaning hard on its No. 1 natural resource, celebrities," he said. Not all celebrities are equal, however.
Oprah Winfrey showing up at your door, for example, "has to be the most effective thing ever," Noah said. "Seriously, if Oprah showed up at my house and asked me to do anything, you better believe I'm doing it — and I'm talking anything," including hiding a dead body. On the other hand, he said, it would probably be more effective to have her hiding behind a random polling booth, "because if I knew that Oprah might show up at my house, I'm staying home all day. I'm not going to leave to vote in case I miss Oprah."
"I don't need graphics to tell you why tomorrow is huge," Noah said after his hologram fail. If Democrats win the House or Senate, they can block any legislation, they'll have a seat at the table, and they "might even be able to see what's inside his tax returns — spoiler alert: it's Hillary's emails." If Democrats don't win either house, Noah added, Trump will take that as a mandate to get "even Trumpier. And you thought that tie was too long before? We're going ankle-length, baby ... super-ankle-length, and also concentration camps, but mostly tie lengths."
Noah showed a clip of a Ted Cruz rally to make a point that polls may not reflect reality. "People can say whatever they want in the polls, it doesn't have to be true — they're like the Tinder profiles of democracy," he said. So don't vote because of the polls, vote for your convictions, or to crush the other side, whatever. Watch below. Peter Weber
