Jordan Klepper Debates Anti-Vax Mandate Protesters in NYC | The Daily Show

Daily Show correspondent Jordan Klepper hit the streets again to attempt to debate far-right Republicans who can't discern fact from fiction to save their lives. Literally

In Klepper's latest Fingers the Pulse, he went to an anti-vax protest outside the home of Mayor Bill de Blasio in New York City to get to the bottom of the irrational thinking of anti-vaxxers.

Their embarrassment is amusing, in that midnight-dark way now so familiar to us.

But Kavanaugh's critics argued that the investigation should have been much more comprehensive in light of the fact that then-President Donald Trump had nominated him for a lifetime appointment on the highest judicial body in the United States. FBI Director Christopher Wray's handling of that investigation, according to Guardian reporter Stephanie Kirchgaessner, continues to be scrutinized three years later.
