Veteran comedian Jon Stewart made a notable comeback on the “Daily Show,” delivering a scathing critique of President Joe Biden’s recent public demeanor in light of the Department of Justice (DOJ) report raising concerns about his mental sharpness.
At 61, Stewart did not hold back as he addressed the 81-year-old president’s recent media appearances post the release of Special Counsel Robert Hur’s findings. In a remarkable satirical twist, Stewart referred to the president as the “chocolate chip cookie guy,” playing off President Biden’s peculiar remarks made during his inaugural TikTok video post.
Stewart emphatically suggested a staffing overhaul at the White House and expressed bewilderment at how Biden’s involvement with TikTok – a platform widely favored by the youth – paradoxically made him seem out of touch and older.
Though President Biden bore the brunt of Stewart’s return, the episode equally carved out time to dissect former President Donald Trump. Stewart aired footage of Trump and his relatives’ depositions, where their lapses in memory were evident, leading Stewart to quip that the “leading cause of dementia is being deposed.”
After a hiatus of nine years, Stewart’s revisit to the “Daily Show” marks a part-time takeover from Trevor Noah, who has witnessed a marked decline in viewership since assuming the host role in 2015.
