There are so many hot takes on the 2016 Presidential election. Take your pick. You can read about polling data, demographics, and/or a million other excuses for why every expert got this thing wrong. But if you want a little sugar with your medicine, you can turn to late night TV hosts.

Here's a rundown of how TV after 11 is reacting:

Following a delightful song and dance number between Late Show-host Stephen Colbert and an innocent ragamuffin, the mayor of Candytown himself, Jon Stewart, dropped in to offer the audience some “toffee from an old man’s pants.” But upon learning that Donald Trump is running for president, Stewart, who’s a little out of the loop these days, gave his patented spit-take salute in surprise. Time to get back to work… after a little Yentl, for which there is always time.

Hamilton's Javier Muñoz, an astronaut, a crossing guard, and, of course, an adorable orphan joined other classic symbols of Americana, Colbert, and Stewart on stage to remind the audience to get out and vote. Make this old man’s wish come true, America. 

And now, what we’ve all been waiting for, gifs of people doing spit takes!

Here's another reason to live past Election Day: Dave Chappelle will be hosting Saturday Night Live on November 12. This isn't just big news because Chappelle's the best, but also because it's the first time he'll be returning to sketch comedy since he ended Chappelle's Show in 2006. Not to be outdone, Chappelle will be sharing the stage with musical guest A Tribe Called Quest.

Set your DVRs to stun.

Quincy Jones was on the Ellen show previously talking about the Kickstarter to fund his comedy special. At the time she presented him with a $10,000 check and simply mentioned that some distributor should pick it up when his special has been recorded. 



Clearly, Ellen has done more than that. Jones plans to tape the special at Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles April 4 and it looks like fans can watch it on HBO when it gets released.

We hate to admit it, but this is too good to be true.  This is a spectacular work of editing by a comedian inserting himself into a 2011 news report as an employee of "the house that beef built".  

It's even been confirmed by the news station that did the story.
