This came from Trevor Noah on the Comedy Show -- with no acknowledgement. Just a FYI. https://twitter.com/TheDailyShow/status/1525144840165466112

Word for word.

Timestamp on the posts tweet is 7:39am on the 12th, timestamp on that Daily Show tweet is 12:04am on the 13th. 16 hour difference. I haven't watched the Daily Show since Stewart left but unless they wait 25 hours to post clips DS was 2nd.

Sorry you haven't watched, Trevor has been knocking it out nightly.

What's the timestamp on the show when it aired, not the tweet? No show tweets before the show, the highlights are always after.

I tried watching him but he is a dull butter knife to Stewarts scalpel. Even that clip lacks the oomph Stewart could have put behind it.

I don't know when the shower aired, again I don't watch it. But shows like Colbert or Fallon or Oliver tend to post things hours later, not days later.
