Watch Trevor Noah Tackle America's Pumpkin Spice Addiction

Pumpkin spice season is here and there is no escaping it.

Pumpkin spice season is upon us, and Trevor Noah, the host of The Daily Show, is frustrated. Last night, Noah was trying to cover Russian warplanes hitting CIA trained fighters in Syria, but his "senior geopolitical correspondent" John Klepper was instead more interested in reporting on the return of pumpkin spice ("Did something happen in Syria?... I'm reporting the real news.") Klepper extolled the seasonal joy of pumpkin spice, all while drinking a pumpkin spice latte: "Have you ever had a pumpkin spice latte in June? It tastes like cat piss. But, in October, it's like you're tonguing Thanksgiving while high-fiving Halloween." In disbelief, Noah cut to another "geopolitical correspondent," Desi Lydic, who claims that she is in "war torn Damascus," but instead is in front of a pumpkin patch eating pumpkin pie. When the camera cuts back to the studio, Klepper is doing lines of pure pumpkin spice. There's no escaping it, Trevor.
