Last weekend, Ben Carson dropped out of the presidential race, leaving only 25 or so more terrifyingly inept and/or racist Republican candidates in the running to be President of the United States.

In honor of his leaving, last night’s Daily Show remembered how, before he was a presidential candidate, Ben Carson the famous surgeon was a black hero and role model. Now he’s none of those things, except still a surgeon, we guess, right? But isn’t it weird to think of someone going to the hospital and being all, “Hello, Dr. Carson, can’t wait for you to operate on my brain today …” as if anything is normal about that???

In any case, here is The Daily Show‘s farewell to the man/sleepy teddy bear, in the form of a spoken word goodbye by Roy Wood, Jr. and a song by Jessica Williams.
