Trevor Noah summed up what most people are feeling right now as he hosted Tuesday night's episode of The Daily Show on Comedy Central.

"This is it, the end of the presidential race, and it feels like the end of the world," he said as he opened the show.

As the election results rolled in with Donald Trump leading the polls, the show took a serious tone.

"I don't know if you came to the right place for jokes tonight - this is the first time throughout the entire race that I'm officially sh*tting my pants," he added, looking downcast.

"I genuinely don't know how America can be this disorganised or this hateful — I don’t know which one it is.”

Noah then spoke with Desi Lydic, a Clinton campaign correspondent. “Everything’s fine, Trevor. Why wouldn’t everything be fine?” she said sarcastically, with a forced smile.

“We will just have to wait a little bit longer than expected to find out if America prefers the competent, sane woman or a misogynist troll doll.”
