As the Tory leadership contest is underway, Boris Johnson's bid for the premiership is picking up momentum.

And while most people in the UK know by now who Boris is, many in America might be unfamiliar. This is why The Daily Show host Trevor Noah made sure to explain exactly who the prime minister hopeful is - and what better way to do it than with a classic comparison to another white-haired, bad-mouthed leader?

On Thursday, Noah revealed that Donald Trump and Boris Johnson, in fact, were "separated at birth". Speaking alongside a picture of the two of them, Noah said:
