President Trump praised his Supreme Court nominee Thursday evening, after both Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford had a chance to testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Late-night hosts had slightly different takes after the dust had settled on the day:
- Trevor Noah addressed the "big showdown," specifically Ford's knowledge of the psychology of what had happened in her own mind, throwing out such terms as "norepinephrine" and "hippocampus." "Oh snap!" Noah remarked. "People were asking how the lady can trust her brain. Turns out she's a brain scientist! Yeah, those senators were probably like, 'Oh, yes, we're also familiar with the hippopotamus."
