How do you know a local scandal is no longer local? A good indicator is probably when The Daily Show gives it six and half (out of twenty-two) minutes of airtime. So, after his spectacularly poor decision to wear blackface on Purim, Brooklyn assemblyman Dov Hikind finds himself a national laughingstock (among other things) as well as the poster-boy for the “war on Purim”. Watch Jon Stewart and Daily Show “Senior Purim Correspondent” Jessica Williams go to work.
Welcome to the big leagues, Dov.
