Seth Meyers and Trevor Noah predicted a sad and anti-climactic end to Ben Carson’s faltering presidential campaign.
The “Daily Show” host appeared Monday night on “Late Night,” where he talked about experiencing his first American election campaign and his legendary predecessor, Jon Stewart’s, recent return for a visit.
“My favorite candidate is Ben Carson,” Noah said, conceding the one-time frontrunner would likely leave the race soon.
“He has so many layers to him,” he continued. “Trump is Trump — we get it. But Ben Carson is layered. He’s like a man of mystery. He’s got a dangerous side that maybe didn’t actually happen, which is even more dangerous — and he’s chill, on top of all that.”
Meyers said the retired neurosurgeon’s demeanor was so somnolent that he might forget to announce that he’s dropped out of the race — while Noah suggested that Carson would not actually drop out but everyone would forget he was running.
They continued riffing, as Meyers suggested a strange and awkward conclusion to Carson’s baffling campaign.
“There’s going to be a very awkward moment at the inauguration for whoever it is, where you’ll just see in the background someone explaining to Ben Carson, it’s over — it’s not you, they went a different way,” Meyers said.
