Jon Stewart Returns to Mock Donald Trump's Big Convention
Can you imagine living under a rock and not knowing who the Republican nominee is? What about a cabin in the woods?
Last April, Jon Stewart retired from the "The Daily Show."
"It’s not like I thought the show wasn’t working any more, or that I didn’t know how to do it. It was more, Yup, it’s working. But I’m not getting the same satisfaction," Stewart told the Guardian in April 2015.
Since this was two months before Donald Trump announced his candidacy, Stewart could have easily missed out on the whole Trump phenomenon. And with the GOP convention underway, Stephen Colbert, host of "The Late Show," couldn't let that happen.
Colbert arrived at Stewart's hideaway to deliver the news, just in case Stewart had missed it all, hoping the former late-night host would return for the show.
As predicted, Stewart hammed it up, pretending to be clueless and just finding out Trump was the GOP nominee.
"The old Jon Stewart talked about politics... Jeb Bush will be fine," Stewart assured Colbert.
Colbert then revealed the bad news. Stewart was baffled.
“The guy from ‘The Apprentice?’ The guy who did a McDonald’s commercial with Grimace? The guy who filed for bankruptcy in 1991?” Stewart asked.
“And ’92,” Colbert added.
“And 2004,” Stewart continued.
“And 2009,” Colbert reported.
Stewart still couldn't believe it.
“Mike Tyson’s business adviser? That guy? The guy whose eyes look like tiny versions of his mouth?" Stewart asked.
“Yes, the guy who looks like an angry creamsicle,” Colbert mused.
“A guy who looks like he’s actually wearing a Donald Trump costume?” Stewart asked.
“A loose-fitting one at that!” Colbert offered.
“The guy who wrote, and I quote, ‘Oftentimes, when I was sleeping with one of the top women of the world, I would say to myself, can you believe what I am getting?' That guy?” Stewart asked.
“Yes! The same guy who said, and I quote, ‘I have black guys counting my money. I hate it. The only guys I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes all day,'” Colbert confirmed.
