There’s been nothing funny about this election–except for those mock debates on Saturday Night Live, performed so masterfully by Alec Baldwin and Kate McKinnon. Now imagine if only Jon Stewart had provided some comic relief during these long, bruising months. Maybe our nerves wouldn’t be so frayed.
Fortunately, we can take this new comic bit into the election. Appearing at the 10th annual Stand Up for Heroes benefit on November 1, Jon Stewart walked the crowd through his absurd Twitter war with the standard bearer of the Republican party. And someone was good enough to tape it.
Enjoy the strange tale of Jonathan Liebowitz v. F**kface Von Clownstick. Or, as Stewart calls it, ‘The Day I Woke Up To Find Out Somebody Was Tweeting Weird Shit About Me.”
