'The Daily Show' has arrived in Cleveland, Ohio for the Republican National Convention, where Donald Trump will be formally nominated. It's South African host Trevor Noah's first time at a U.S. political convention, after he replaced Jon Stewart last year. Noah has often poked fun at Trump, and says he's sure the four-day event will be interesting. (SOUNDBITE) (English) HOST OF "THE DAILY SHOW", TREVOR NOAH, SAYING: "It is quite a thing to see a party and a group of people succumb to the will of -- I don't even want to call him a madman -- really, just like a really dangerous buffoon who has hijacked their party." The show has often satirized Trump's anti-immigration stance and his promise to build a wall along its border with Mexico. The Republican National Convention was off to a dramatic start on Monday. It briefly erupted in chaos when Trump's opponents stormed out after failing to force a vote against his candidacy. But, their rebellion was soon quashed. Republicans resumed the rally to support Trump, who faces Democrat Hillary Clinton in the November 8th election.
