The Daily Show‘s Jordan Klepper figured out exactly what Donald Trump’s campaign is: It’s literally a circus. And so Jordan went to a Trump rally in New Hampshire, featuring boisterous crowds of fans, reality-TV stars, and a big-talking ringmaster at the center of it. “A memory that will last for — possibly four years. God help us all.”

Larry Wilmore looked at the latest developments in Flint, Michigan, with the effort by citizens of Michigan to recall Gov. Rick Snyder — only to see some of the petitions rejected by the state for spelling and grammatical errors. “Hold on, the water is filled with poisonous particles — and you’re concerned about dangling participles? ‘For crimes against humanity, knowingly poisoning the people of Flint, the citizens demand the immediate resignation of the governor, who we must hold responsible.’ ‘Who?’ I believe in this case it should be whom! The murderer stays!”

President Joe Biden carried the state by over 12,500 votes, making it second to Arizona when it comes to the the narrowest margin of victory. This was far outside the realm of possible change that might be addressed by a recount, but Georgia conducted a recount anyway. When that didn’t make things any better for Trump, he requested that Georgia count a third time, which it did. Trump still lost, and by a bigger number than ever.

A Republican House candidate for a competitive seat in northwest Ohio said Monday that mass shootings are an acceptable price to pay for his right to own guns.

"I don't care if countries in Europe have less shootings because they don't have guns. I care about THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and OUR 2nd Amendment Rights," Republican J.R. Majewski tweeted Monday evening. "I think Americans stopped caring what Europe thought of our country in 1776."
