Jon Stewart meets the divisive country he helped create
March 8, 2023
Jon Stewart isn’t getting a taste of his own medicine. He’s gargling a nectar of his own creation.
And, without a whiff of irony, he’s none too pleased about it.
Stewart supported the pandemic lab leak theory more than a year ago on “The Late Show,” confounding both host Stephen Colbert and Progressive Nation.
Don’t listen to comedians, we were (suddenly) told. Why would he put his credibility on the line to support a fringe theory, others cried?
His critics took the bit personally, understanding some may start to question the Official Narrative on a subject they deemed closed. He had betrayed the group by stepping outside the liberal bubble and flexing some common sense.
“Oh my God, there’s been an outbreak of chocolatey goodness near Hershey, Pennsylvania. What do you think happened?’ Like, ‘Oh I don’t know, maybe a steam shovel mated with a cocoa bean?’ Or it’s the f***ing chocolate factory.”
The blistering proved so shocking he’s still talking about it.
