On Monday’s Daily Show, Trevor Noah reacted to news that another woman came forward to accuse Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore of sexual assault when she was a teenager.

All weekend, Republican politicians have been distancing themselves from Moore after the string of allegations, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who said he believes the women.

“Ha-ha, look at Mitch McConnell’s face,” Noah said, trying to find something to disagree with. “He looks like a man who made a point that… I agree with… about how we should believe the victims — I’m not used to this feeling, this is weird.”

Moore called into Sean Hannity’s radio show to defend himself and said he doesn’t remember “dating any girl without the permission of their mother.”

“I don’t think I have ever heard someone deny their way into a confession,” Noah remarked. Watch the clip below for more.
