Trevor Noah suggested on Monday night’s episode of “The Daily Show” that the super PAC supporting former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s (R) presidential candidacy, Right To Rise, should have done something constructive with its millions instead of its ineffective ads.

Noah said super PAC advisers told Politico on Thursday, “The $40 million spent on positive ads aimed at telling Bush’s story has yielded no tangible dividends.”

The host couldn’t wrap his head around the huge number.

“That is such an insane amount of money,” Noah said. “Jeb Bush could have been the president of his own island for $40 million. He could have done something constructive. Maybe he could have bought the residents of Flint, Michigan a new water system. $40 million, he could have done something.”
