Last night on the Daily Show, correspondent Jason Jones was mock-interviewing GOP strategist Noelle Nikpour. He even tells her the way it usually goes: she says something (stupid), he makes a funny comment, and so on.
Still, Noelle would not stray off message and continued to regurgitate the Republican talking points.
A lot of the recent GOP greatest hits come out. When she says that Obamacare is one of the worst policies ever in American history, Jones reminds her about slavery.
So an actual hostage negotiator is brought in to talk to the young woman. He counsels Jones how to interact with Nikpour and watches the conversation.
Finally the expert throws in the towel because it’s worst case he has ever seen.
Noelle, frankly, appears more like a brainwashed victim than someone in charge.
Watch the skit below.
