After years of asking for change and a Republican-thwarted legislative attempt at gun control, the only change Barack Obama has seen has been to his aging face.

“I feel bad for Barack Obama,” host Trevor Noah said on Thursday’s episode of “The Daily Show.” “He’s been begging for gun control for six years and the only major change to the gun debate since he got into office has been to his face. You gotta feel for him. We have found the amount of pressure under which black does crack.”

But there is hope, Noah said. Lawmakers like Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) have found the fountain of youth.

“He’s barely aged in the past six years! And all he’s had to do about mass shootings is take no steps whatsoever,” Noah said. “Congress has discovered the fountain of youth: pure distilled inaction.”
