If TV has taught me anything, and it has, it’s that every president is a no-good adulterer with an illegitimate child, and whenever someone runs for governor, mayor, or any important government job, their internet history is picked through to the last Google Image. If you made a comment on a Dave Matthews Band message board about weed in high school, your handlers, or the online version of Mike the Cleaner from Breaking Bad, will find and delete it.

Hosting The Daily Show isn’t exactly the same thing as running for congress, obviously, but it’s still odd that certain tweets from Trevor Noah, who will replace Jon Stewart later this year, weren’t deleted. They’re not offensive, exactly, so much as dumb and disappointing.
