Trevor Noah on Beto O’Rourke: ‘He lost by a little bit, which is what people love’ | Culture

Trevor NoahFormer Texas congressman Beto O’Rourke, who narrowly lost to Ted Cruz in last year’s Senate race, is running for president. And it’s about time he made it official, “because he’s been teasing us for months”, said Trevor Noah on Thursday’s Daily Show.
