Stephen Colbert became a comedic hack a while back. He’s no longer funny or creative, and merely a tool of the Left.
So when he invited his friend Jon Stewart on, he likely didn’t expect Stewart to respond as he did.
Watch the exchange, when Colbert questions Stewart about the “scientific response to COVID-19”:

Stewart: “I think we owe a great debt of gratitude to science. Science has, in many ways, helped ease the suffering of this pandemic…which was more than likely caused by science.”
Colbert: “Do you mean perhaps there’s a chance that this was created in a lab?” asked Colbert, adding “There’s an investigation.”
Stewart: “A chance?!”
“Oh my god, there’s a novel respiratory coronavirus overtaking Wuhan, China, what do we do? Oh, you know who we could ask? The Wuhan novel respiratory coronavirus lab. The disease is the same name as the lab. That’s just a little too weird, don’t you think? And then they asked those scientists – they’re like ‘how did this… so wait a minute, you work at the Wuhan respiratory coronavirus lab. How did this happen?’ and they’re like ‘mmmm – a pangolin kissed a turtle?’ and you’re like ‘no… the name of your lab! If you look at the name! Can I… let me see your business card. Show me your business card. Oh – I work at the coronavirus lab in Wuhan. Oh, cause there’s a coronavirus loose in Wuhan. How did that happen?’
‘Maybe a bat… flew into the Cloaca of a turkey and… then it sneezed into my chili. And now we all have Coronavirus.”
Colbert is clearly uncomfortable, as the audience delights in the obvious stupidity of Colbert’s position. An “investigation?!”
Stewart pointed out the absurdity of thinking any except this virus originated from the Wuhan virology lab.
Stewart finished Colbert off with this throat-punch:
“HOLD IT, HOLD IT! What about this, what about this… listen to this! ‘OH MY GOD, there’s been an outbreak of chocolatey goodness near Hershey, Pennsylvania. What do you think happened?’
‘Oh I don’t know, maybe a steam shovel mated with a cocoa bean?’
“Or… it’s the fucking chocolate factory! Maybe that’s it!”
It’s fun watching people like Stewart gain sanity on the absurdity of Leftism, then turn their new powers of logic and reason against their own.
You can bet that Colbert will think twice about having Stewart back as a guest.
