“[The] interview didn’t seem to be about journalism or the Republican party or even the election,” says the befuddled “Daily Show” host. “It seems like it was about two brands–Donald Trump and Megyn Kelly–and whether they could forge a mutually beneficial relationship.”

The two “brands,” as Noah calls them, have been in spat after spat this election cycle over Trump’s misogynistic comments, many of which have been directed at the Fox News anchor. And yet, while Tuesday’s interview was billed as a must-see confrontation, the sit-down left a lot to be desired, according to The New York Times.
