The Daily Show‘s Trevor Noah has a penchant for hilariously pinpointing the ironies of the nation’s most peculiar characters.

Tuesday was no different as the comedian explained why former Fox News commentator Stacey Dash, who has recently filed to run for Congress, would make a horrendous congressional candidate.

Dash, a Republican, is planning to compete for a seat in California’s 44th Congressional District, which, according to HuffPost, is a predominantly Democratic region.

“She’s running as a Republican in Compton and Watts?” Noah asked on Tuesday’s show. “They’re neighborhoods so black, they make Wakanda look like a Panera.”

The Clueless actress has made a number of derogatory comments about the Black community, which, Noah suggested, aren’t likely to help her candidacy.
The talk/news show host concluded the political run is a “publicity stunt” and hinted he hoped the Russian government doesn’t see value in her candidacy:

“The point is, we’d better pray that Vladimir Putin isn’t a big fan of Clueless.
