PHOENIX — 'The Daily Show' with Trevor Noah is poking fun at “swing states,” including Arizona.

In a show segment called United Swing States of America, 'The Daily Show' reporter Desi Lydic visited “cactus country” to discuss Arizona’s Daylight Saving Time opt-out.

Lydic walked around Old Town Scottsdale and asked residents how they’ve “functioned living outside normal time.”

She also talked with local activist Scott Yates, calling him a clock-blocker, who is on a mission to stop clock changing with his Lock The Clock movement.

Arizona, except for the Navajo Indian Reservation, and Hawaii are the only two states in the U.S. to opt out of daylight saving each year.
