“The Daily Show” left New York City for the Midwest to find out why Nebraska is abolishing the death penalty.
Correspondent Desi Lydic talked with Republican state Sen. Colby Coash on Thursday’s episode about the death penalty, a practice, Lydic said that was, “American as apple pie. That’s laced with pentobarbital.”
Caosh explained to a skeptical Lydic that the Cornhusker state is abolishing the death penalty because of conservative values.
“You used conservative principles to convince conservatives to violate their beliefs,” Lydic said. “That is, like, the slickest, most underhanded Republican thing I’ve ever heard.”
