Jon Stewart’s last real appearance to talk about the current election was his wonderful throwback appearance on The Late Show. Back then it was Trump on the cusp of becoming the nominee is Cleveland, Stephen Colbert bringing back some of his Comedy Central character for some new fun, and Stewart taking over Colbert’s desk for a while. It was a nice time, but a lot has happened since then.
That might be why Stewart couldn’t resist bringing up the current GOP nominee and possible president during his appearance at Tuesday’s Stand Up For Heroes event in New York City. The 10th annual event took place at Madison Square Garden and featured Stewart alongside the big names of comedy: Louis CK, Jerry Seinfeld, and Jim Gaffigan. There was also an appearance from Bruce Springsteen, ensuring that the veterans in attendance got a good show and those who couldn’t make it were represented by the best you could name.
