'The Daily Show' Is Officially Ignoring the Troll Sarah Palin

Esther Zuckerman

On last night's Daily Show, John Oliver nearly fell into temptation. You see, Sarah Palin returned to Fox & Friends yesterday, and she said a number of ridiculous things. Oliver almost didn't know where to start, but then he realized something: "F--k it. This is exactly what she wants. Just because I walked into a turd supermarket doesn't mean I have to buy anything."

So, Oliver created a new segment—"Wait a second, we can just ignore her"—which he announced to large applause. "We can respond to her obvious trolling with a series of insulting jokes and maybe together enjoy a brief moment of catharsis," he explained. "Or we can just f--king ignore her. I promise America it will feel so good. It will be like we give our brains an enema together."
