The Daily Show with Trevor Noah took onthe Louisiana governor’s race Thursday night. The main focus: Prostitution’s role in deciding the state’s next governor.
Republican U.S. Sen. David Vitter has been repeatedly confronted about his 2007 sex scandal as the campaign nears its Saturday end. And as Noah notes, Vitter’s Democratic rival, state Rep. John Bel Edwards, has developed a knack for bringing it up at every chance he gets.
The Daily Show highlights an exchange between the two during a recent debate: Vitter noted Edwards’ low score from the Louisiana Association of Business and Industry. Edwards shot back that he gives 100 percent to his wife.
“It turns out that John Bel Edwards doesn’t even need an opening to bring up the prostitution scandal. Even when Vitter tried to get him on his state business association rating, Edwards still brought up prostitution,” Noah said.
