Trevor Noah does his best to focus on the news — meaning the installation of Mick Mulvaney as Donald Trump’s latest temp chief of staff in the White House. And that’s an amusing story, even if you already know that the OMB chief not-so-secretly despises the boss.

But it doesn’t take long for Trevor to turn his attention to the scandal he really wants to probe: White House aide Stephen Miller’s hair, or lack thereof. Specifically, the spectacle that Miller created over the weekend when he appeared on television with sprayed-on “hair.”

Just click. And never, ever spray that stuff on your head.
