Stephen Colbert knew that he needed serious help while covering the Republican National Convention on ‘The Late Show’, so he sought out the best of the best: his old friend Jon Stewart! Click through to watch the hilarious skit!
On the July 18 episode of The Late Show, host Stephen Colbert struggled to explain to his audience just how in the world Donald Trump, 70, was getting the GOP nomination. But he knew who could do it easily. Help us, Jon Stewart! You’re Stephen Colbert’s only hope!
The retired host of The Daily Show is apparently holed up in a shack in the woods, not following politics at all, so Stephen has to make the trek out their to deliver the shocking news. No, the GOP nominee isn’t Jeb Bush. It’s Trump. “The guy from The Apprentice? The guy who did a McDonald’s commercial with Grimace? Mike Tyson‘s business advisor? The guy whose eyes look like tiny versions of his mouth?” Jon has a lot of incredulous questions.
Stephen begs him to come out of hiding to help him assess this situation, and Jon has to think it over for a minute. He runs back out to the door with the person he’s apparently been sharing his shack with: Stephen Colbert, as in the character from The Colbert Report!
Stephen ditched the ultra-conservative persona, that he portrayed for years on his Comedy Central talk show, when he was appointed to The Late Show. Well, Colbert is back. because someone has to protect America — raised eyebrows, Captain America shield and all! It’s time to go fight the good fight!
We missed these two! Jon has a longstanding feud with Trump, when Trump started bashing his politics and changing his name from Jonathan Lebowitz, and Jon responded by calling him “F**kface von Clownstick” Still funny!
