“She’s going to get confirmed even though she failed everything. Every subject she got at the hearing. Failed. Failed. Failed. Failed ? except Donations 101,” he said on Wednesday’s “The Daily Show.”
Noah went on to say that having her as secretary of education would be like having an Amish guy as head of NASA.
“And that’s why I feel like this hearing was a perfect metaphor for the worst of the education system in America,” Noah said. “Here’s a student who’s clearly not proficient in the required subject matter, but because of the system, we know they’re still going to get pushed through.”

A Pakistani pop star is gaining fans around the world after he stopped a concert mid-song to save a woman who was being sexually harassed in the audience.
Atif Aslam was performing at a concert in Karachi, Pakistan, on Saturday when he silenced his band and walked to the edge of the stage toward a group of men who appeared to be harassing the woman, as seen in the above video of the confrontation.
“Have you ever seen a girl before?” Aslam, 33, asked the men he confronted, according to a translation by The India Times. “Your mother or sister could have been here as well.”
Aslam then ordered concert staffers to bring the woman on stage, saying in English, “Rescue her. Rescue her. Rescue her.”
After the woman was removed from the audience, Aslam rebuked the men while people in the audience cheered for the singer.
“Enjoy the concert with discipline. It will be a long show, otherwise it will [finish] soon,” Aslam said to the harassers.
“Try to act like a human being,” he added, before continuing on with the show.
#AtifAslam stopped in the middle of concert & scolded guy who was harassing girls.
That woman wasn’t the only one at the show who needed help.
Local reports say that many other females were victimized during the concert. According to Pakistani news site Images.com, the venue was crowded with trespassers and many women in attendance were harassed and molested by men throughout the show.
“Atif did the right thing, which any other human being would do,” the singer’s brother and manager told NBC News. “We don’t want this to be blown out of proportion and hope that folks continue to believe in Atif’s music.”
“People in Pakistan view gender equality as a zero-sum game where universal protection for women enshrined in the law decreases the scope of unchecked male power,” she added. “And that, to them, is a problem.”
Not many individuals would have stopped a performance to stop a woman from being harassed. So much respect I am now a fan #atifaslam
A working theory for 2017: Teleprompters are trying to throw humans off their game to ultimately plot a robot world takeover.
Here’s the proof so far — One conked out on Jimmy Fallon at the Golden Globes earlier in January. Now, on Wednesday night, another one cut out as Kristen Bell was presenting the Favorite Humanitarian Award to Tyler Perry at the People’s Choice Awards.
The actor, producer and director was being recognized for his charitable work with The Tyler Perry Foundation, generously donating to organizations like the NAACP, Charity Water and Feeding America.
“With this guardian angel at our side ... the teleprompter has gone out,” Bell sheepishly told the audience while listing Perry’s accomplishments. Still, she managed to recover quickly. “But I suppose I can finish. With this guardian angel at our side, I think we’re all incredibly grateful to have someone like him that can teach us to grow and give back as the example.”
Ellen DeGeneres really likes mashed potatoes. How much? Well, it was one of the first things she mentioned in her acceptance speech as she became the most decorated winner in People’s Choice Awards history.
What else are you going to talk about? DeGeneres has now won 20 People’s Choice Awards, including the awards for Favorite Daytime TV Host and Favorite Animated Movie Voice that she took home on Wednesday.
Eventually, you’re going to run out of topics.
As she put it, “Seventeen, I get it. Eighteen, sure. Nineteen, I can see that, but 20 is outrageous.”
DeGeneres went on to give a very Ellen-like speech, thanking the people for choosing her and wishing animals had been able to vote for her as well.
The honor was the 22-year-old’s second nomination in the category and first win. According to the award show, Dallas has a combined 36 million social media followers — and a Netflix show to boot. Not too shabby.
After winning the award for Favorite Dramatic Movie Actress, the “Café Society” star brought up an oft-overlooked source of inspiration: the Spice Girls.
“I was always an ambitious kid, so I set a goal for myself as a kid. I knew if I could accomplish this that I would be successful, and I could be happy, and that was ... to meet the Spice Girls,” she said to laughter from the crowd. “Still haven’t accomplished it.” The award was Lively’s first People’s Choice Awards win, and she’s received five nominations throughout her career.
“What was so neat about them was that they were all so distinctly different, and they were women, and they owned who they were. That was my first introduction to girl power,” Lively continued, later adding, “When you guys voted for this, you didn’t just vote for this, you didn’t just vote for this movie or me, but you voted for girl power ... And men voted for girl power, too! You guys are awesome for doing that, and thank you for sending a message to Hollywood that people want to hear stories about women.”
Never let anyone tell you again that “Spice World” isn’t a total game-changer.
Despite CBS’ best efforts to hide it, Twitter smells what The Rock is cooking.
Kevin Hart had a lot to say after winning the award for Favorite Comedic Movie Actor at the 2017 People’s Choice Awards on Wednesday. That also included calling out his “Jumanji” and “Central Intelligence” co-star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
During his speech, Hart thanked all his co-stars before adding, “Except The Rock, because he hasn’t helped me. He hasn’t helped me at all. You’ve actually lessened my talent. It went down since you’ve been in my life.”
The 28-year-old YouTube star, better known by her YouTube name “IISuperwomanII,” looked simply stunning in a slinky gold midi dress. But it wasn’t Singh’s ensemble that caught our eye ? it was her incredible array of red carpet poses.
Singh kicked off the night by winning the Favorite YouTube Star award in a stacked category against the likes of Miranda Sings and Tyler Oakley. It looks like 2017 is shaping up to be a big year for the online mogul, as she also has a book coming out in March called How to Be a Bawse.
Here’s just a smattering of Singh’s best red carpet action shots.
