So, we started off with a massive number of Democratic candidates, and now — with Elizabeth Warren dropping out of the race on Thursday — we’re down to just three: Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, and Tulsi Gabbard (although it’s worth noting that the latter has won just two pledged delegates so far).
During The Daily Show, Trevor Noah played a clip of Warren talking about how the discussion around sexism in the race was a “trap question,” because she’d end up looking bad whatever answer she gave.
“Elizabeth Warren has a good point,” Noah says in response. “Because like it or not, that was some truth that she dropped there. A woman addressing sexism or ignoring it while running for president is either going to be seen as a whiner, or living on another planet. Which is unfair, especially since the president is already a whiner who lives on another planet.”
Noah goes on to discuss diversity in general, commenting on how the field of candidates has now essentially narrowed to just Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden.
“Whether you think sexism played a role or not, you have to admit it’s pretty strange that a race that started with a broad tapestry of candidates is now basically down to two old white men,” he says. “They’re so old, that no matter which one of them wins, Donald Trump will be the youngest person in the race.”
Now there’s a strange thought.
