Trevor Noah highlighted the endless House committee hearing Thursday on Benghazi, and the House GOP’s never-ending quest to launch investigation after investigation to bring down Hillary Clinton.

“That’s like a whole season of television that the House Select Committee just dropped on us like they were Netflix or something,” Trevor said of the hearing. “And I watched all of it — because I don’t just Benghazi, I binge-ghazi.”

Larry Wilmore looked at Paul Ryan’s insistence that he get to spend time with his family while still being Speaker of the House — compared to Ryan’s own votes against paid family leave for medical workers, and his other policies that would makes it harder for low-income working parents to be around their kids.

Conan O’Brien and Andy Richter also marveled at how long the Benghazi hearings were.
