A few days after dropping by his old Daily Show studio to shame members of Congress over the “hard to pay for” 9/11 first responders bill, a bearded Jon Stewart did the same thing on Stephen Colbert’s new show. Except this time, he was covered in Cheetos dust and dressed like Donald Trump.
Why? Because, as Colbert put it, “No one is going to listen to you unless you… Trump It Up a little bit. Face it, Jon, the media won’t pay attention to anything at all unless you are Donald Trump.” So, Stewart put on a wig and the aforementioned orange soot, which turned him into a tragic soap opera character. It’s one thing to look the part, though; it’s another to sound it. “These 9/11 first responders are the most top notch, first class, diamond encrusted heroes America can produce. Tell [Congress] Donald said pull up your big boy pants and make America great again… pass the Zadroga Act!”
