Comedian Jon Stewart overpowered Stephen Colbert’s ability to shill on Monday, hijacking the Late Show‘s return to a live (and fully vaccinated) audience with an epic rant on the COVID-19 lab-leak theory.
Stewart final joke that floored Colbert:
“HOLD IT, HOLD IT! What about this, what about this … listen to this! ‘OH MY GOD, there’s been an outbreak of chocolately 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!” Stewart screamed.
Sometimes even liberals need to face reality.
Now, will the left be satisfied with just mocking the issue away- or will they join with Republicans in a bipartisan push to demand transparency and investigations across the board? The next pandemic could be brewing in a lab as we speak so what will the remedial actions be?
