What did he actually expect?

Trevor Noah, the late-night host of Comedy Central's "The Daily Show," took aim at Vice President Mike Pence's wife, Karen Pence, and the Christian school where she will begin teaching this week.

Reports Wednesday revealed that the vice president's wife would be returning to teaching art twice a week at a private school in Virginia.

What did Noah say?

On Wednesday's show, Noah took a swipe at religious freedom and the Pences' marriage.

"Mike Pence's wife, Karen — or 'Mother' as she's called during their BDSM late-night kink sessions — announced she is going back to work," Noah began, and went on to play footage of the announcement.

Noah pointed out the school's strict, Bible-based rules, which, he pointed out, "bans gay and transgender students and makes job candidates sign a pledge they won't condone homosexual activity."

Noah made sure to mark his surprise that a Christian school would base its rules and regulations on conduct and admittance on the Bible.

"I'm sorry, what? No gay kids allowed?" the late-night host joked. "How is that a school policy? Like, do they just have an assembly one day where the principal is like, 'Listen up: at this school we pound p****, am I clear? Hands up. Who in here is interested in the spring musical — trick question, you're out, you're out, you're out, you're all out!"

What else?

Noah went on to claim that using religious freedom to discriminate is a "crazy" notion.

"I'm not going to lie," Noah said. "I think it's crazy that if you want to discriminate against anyone in America all you have to do is go, 'Oh, it's because of my religion! I'm not discriminating!'"

He added, "I want to try that. I want to say, 'No short people allowed at my shows because I want all my friends to be close to Jesus and you couldn't be further away.'"
