Trevor Noah, host of Comedy Central's "The Daily Show," is ramping up his midterm coverage ahead of the Nov. 6 elections with special live episodes that will be filmed in Florida next week. He told Axios Wednesday, "Republicans have a pretty easy job" in 2018 because they're "setting themselves up as the party of the white man."
Between the lines: President Trump's message, he said, is that "white men are struggling in 2018," whether it's with immigrants coming into the country or watching Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation. Because of that, Noah says ahead of the midterms, the GOP has "done a fantastic job of galvanizing their base, of playing the victim card. ... To have the House, Senate and presidency and still have your voters feel like they’re under siege is the most powerful thing they’ve managed to do."
