Jon Stewart isn’t dead but he might as well be—the man hasn’t appeared on television in months, leaving the once-robust television-blog ecosystem shriveled and weak in the hands of that guy who replaced him (if he’s even still on the air.) But rejoice! This week Stewart popped up at the United Service Organization 75th anniversary event at the Joint Base Andrews in Maryland to introduce Joe Biden, and if you can even believe it—he made a joke about Donald Trump.
“He’ll say whatever he kind of thinks of, whatever comes to his mind, sort of impulsive,” Stewart said of Biden. “Sometimes, you might think to yourself, ‘That sounds crazy,’ or ‘Man, that is crazy.’ And who would have thought that now, that gets you the Republican nomination.”
The joke got a lot of laughs, and Stewart couldn’t help but keep going.
“Don’t worry, Trump’s going to keep you busy,” he told the military crowd. “You’re going to have to repaint all the planes with ‘Trump’ in big gold letters.”
Funny, I guess, for a ghost.
