WATCH: Jon Stewart Appeared on Samantha Bee's 'Full Frontal' to Offer Some Surprising Advice

Samantha Bee, the heir apparent of Jon Stewart’s Daily Show reign as history’s most beloved comedy-news host, invited the legend back for a brief appearance on her own show last night.


Bee, who previously served as a special correspondent on the Daily Show, tells Stewart she needs some advice.

“Anything you need, you know you can always call me,” Stewart says to audience applause. “I’m so happy to be here.”

Except, it turns out the advice request isn’t about heading up a satirical news show; it’s about what the hell Bee should do with a tiny white horse.

“Can you take him to your massage farm?” Bee asks, a reference to Stewart and his wife Tracey's post-Daily Show animal sanctuary.

“It’s—it’s not a massage farm,” Stewart sputters, “It’s really just—”

“Because I’m pretty sure I heard that you gave up show business to go and professionally go and massage livestock,” Bee says, a faux-earnest look on her face.

The bit only gets better from there, and is worth watching just for the jab at Trump at the end.
