"There were so many historic firsts last night," Jimmy Kimmel said on Wednesday's post-midterms Kimmel Live. "The first Native American lesbian was elected to Congress, the first Muslim women elected to Congress, and guess what? Mike Pence is gonna have to swear them all in. ... Actually there were two Native American women elected to Congress, one of them is Sharice Davids, and if you're Donald Trump, Sharice Davids is your worse nightmare: A lesbian, Native American former MMA fighter who's been watching you call Elizabeth Warren 'Pocahontas' for two years now and could beat your a-- if she wanted to."
"In Nevada, they elected the first dead brothel owner to the state legislature — what a time to be alive, right? Or dead, I guess," Kimmel said. "This district is so Republican that rather than a Democrat, they voted for a horny ghost. And it must be a weird feeling to lose an election to a dead pimp, so we tracked down Dennis Hof's opponent, Lesia Romanov." She told Kimmel that when Hof died, she knew her chance at winning did, too.
At The Late Show, a fake Leisa Romanov gave her concession speech, saying there was one thing that would have been worse than losing "to a dead pimp."
Hof was probably "the most remarkable trailblazer to win last night," Trevor Noah joked at The Daily Show. Sure, "a dead pimp won the election with 70 percent of the vote," he added, but that "means there were at least 30 percent of voters who were like, 'That's a step too far.'" Look, "I don't know if a dead pimp assemblyman should be in office, but I definitely think it should be a TV show in primetime," Noah said. So he and Roy Wood Jr. put together a preview. Watch below.
