For late-night comedy shows, the Republican-led Arizona audit of the 2020 election is truly the gift that keeps on giving.
For people who live in Arizona, that means it’s a consistent source of embarrassment. The idiocy is funny, sure — come on, looking for bits of bamboo on ballots in a quixotic attempt to find tens of thousands of “illegal” votes with a straight face is comedy gold. Unless you’re the butt of it. Which, if you live in Arizona, you are.
“The Daily Show,” which as recently as May 6 ridiculed Arizona over the recount, went back to the comedy well again Wednesday night, this time in a longer, more in-depth segment. (Stephen Colbert and John Oliver also had taken their shots in the meantime.)
It was awesome.
