Despite his weirdly somnolent voice and demeanor, presidential candidate Ben Carson managed to stir up some controversy this week with his opinions on gun control and dogged insistence that heā€™d know how to handle a mass shooter. Obviously, The Daily Show had some shit to say about that.

Host Trevor Noah describes Carson as being ā€œfor people who like Donald Trumpā€™s ideas, but hate his charm and charisma,ā€ and also compares him to ā€œdrug-free cocaine for people who donā€™t want to get high but just like snorting white powder.ā€ He also points out Carsonā€™s tendency to laugh at socially inappropriate times, for instance right after reporters have asked him what he would do if he found himself in the middle of a mass shooting. Ha ha ha! Only a year and change to go until the 2016 presidential election!
