On Wednesday’s episode of “The Daily Show,” Trevor Noah addressed about the news that Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy is retiring and the fact that progressives are probably as screwed as they think they are.

“Progressives were like, ‘Hey, maybe the future isn’t so bad after all,'” Noah said after a segment about how progressive Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez won a Democratic primary on Tuesday night. “And the future was like ‘Oh, you don’t know me.'”

After noting that Kennedy handed Donald Trump the chance to appoint “a justice who would discriminate, and dismantle abortion rights, and LGBTQ rights,” Noah joked, “that sound you’re hearing right now? That’s Mike Pence having his first orgasm.”

“I know this news is very painful for a lot of people. Feels like for the next 30 years, America is gonna change in a horrible direction. In some ways, it feels like all hope is dead, and nothing can bring it back,” Noah continued.

Noah also talked at length about Ocasio-Cortez’s upset win over Democratic incumbent Joe Crowley. Watch the whole clip above.
