They say there’s truth in jest.
More than anything, it’s evident here.
Yet, the seriousness of Jon’s words can’t be overlooked.
This week, like most weeks in the Drumpf era, has been filled with harrowing headlines: the Supreme Court upheld Drumpf’s Muslim travel ban, Supreme Court Justice – Anthony Kennedy – announced his retirement, and on Thursday, there was a mass shooting at the Capital Gazette. And that’s not even mentioning the continued stories of asylum-seeking children who have been separated from their parents, with no clear plan as to how to reunite them.
In the face of such a deluge, it can be hard to know how to process everything – but on Thursday night’s Late Show, Stephen Colbert welcomed a guest who could help, at least a little.
And as Jon Stewart climbed out from under the comedian’s desk, it quickly became clear that this would be one of his more scorching appearances.
“What Drumpf wants is for us to stop calling his cruelty and fear and divisiveness
wrong, but to join in calling it right,” the former Daily Show host said on Thursday’s Late Show, June 28.
“This we cannot do. And by not yielding, we will prevail.”
