Jon Stewart returned to "The Late Show" the day before the election for a surprising musical number about getting out the vote. 

"It's democracy in action, so get out there and vote," host Stephen Colbert sang before disputing Stewart's claim that "democracy is optional."

Stewart played up the part of being totally out of the loop since retiring. 

"Are you kidding me? That son of a—are you serious? That draft-dodging little orange groundhog is running for president?" Stewart asked after spitting out the contents of his cup on Colbert's face.

"Yeah, he's running against Hillary Clinton," Colbert told him, and assured a clueless Stewart, "He's worse! He's worse! Much worse!"
