Assemb. Dov Hikind gets the 'Daily Show' treatment
To no surprise, Assemb. Dov Hikind garnered national attention after a photo surfaced of him wearing blackface. Hikind (D-Brooklyn) was the subject of not one but two segments on "The Daily Show."
In one piece headlined "Crazy Stupid Dov," host Jon Stewart focused on "how a guy who routinely and loudly demands apologies every time his group gets slighted apologizes." Part two pokes fun at the idea Hikind of fomenting a "War on Purim."
