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 he’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 “for people who like Donald Trump’s ideas, but hate his charm and charisma,” and also compares him to “drug-free cocaine for people who don’t want to get high but just like snorting white powder.” He also points out Carson’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!
