The Daily Show's most senior correspondent Samantha Bee offers her insights on how Herman Cain's hubris led to the collapse of his bid to lead the U.S. Republican party.

In this clip, Samantha talks about...

Her reaction to Herman Cain's withdrawal
"I was so disappointed. It was so rich and beautiful. Every day was something new. I was really loving it. I realize that his wife was probably not loving it, but I got a kick out of it. It was incredible; obviously his whole campaign was to sell his book, but good for him".

Herman Cain's tipping point
"It did seem that at some point he went, "I could really do this. I managed a whole bunch of Burger Kings and I think that I've got some real solutions When there were no burgers and the deep fat fryer went down, I solved that problem in like under 15 minutes. I think I can do this."
