Stephen Colbert Brings Jon Stewart Out of Retirement to Make America Sane Again

Jon Stewart, how we have missed thee? Let us count the ways!

While the news cycle has been obsessing over Donald Trump’s run for president, Stewart has been holed up in a cabin out in the middle of nowhere with his old pal and Comedy Central Republican chum, Stephen Colbert.

So you can imagine their surprise when they found out that the Republican candidate for president is not, as they assumed, Jeb Bush, but Trump, the man who said “I have black guys counting my money, I hate it. The only guys I want counting my money are short guys who wear yarmulkas all day.”

This hilarious video is bittersweet to watch. On the one hand, it feels so good to have Stewart on TV again, and it only took 5 minutes for him to launch jab after priceless jab at Trump’s expense. But so sad at the thought of all the incredible jokes he could have made during the political circus of the last year.

Enjoy the return of Stewart below:
