The hosts of late-night TV responded to Joe Biden picking Sen. Kamala Harris’ (D-Calif.) as his running mate in the 2020 election with mockery of President Donald Trump.
“The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah suggested Trump is “going to have a tough time” attacking Harris because “everything she’s done in her career appeals to Trump’s base.”
“Crafty Kamala spent her whole career locking up criminals and filling up California’s jails,” said Noah, mimicking the president. “She’s even friends with cops. Hold on. That actually sounds pretty cool.”
Noah also explained why he was “impressed” with Biden for picking Harris, given how she “destroyed” him during a Democratic primary debate.
“In fact, part of me thinks he only picked her so that she can just never dust his ass in public again,” Noah joked. “This isn’t a VP pick, this is an insurance policy.”
