Jon Stewart just couldn’t stay away on Election Eve, putting in another appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert just hours before Americans are set to cast their ballots for Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump.
In an attempt to persuade one really young voter to get out and vote on Tuesday, “Mayor of Candytown” Stewart was joined by Hamilton star Javier Muñoz. Along with Colbert, the trio sang and rapped about the importance of voting to ensure that “little orange groundhog” Trump doesn’t get anywhere near 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. After Muñoz exited to get his rest ahead of a Hamilton matinee, Stewart and Colbert finished their show-stopping number with the help of a choir comprised of mailmen, crossing guards, cowboys and astronauts.
“You know, he acts real tough but he’s a wussy,” Stewart proclaimed. “He’ll probably fill the court with Gary Busey, and then he’ll grab your mother’s…,” you know. Needless to say, Stewart was cut off by Colbert before he had the chance to finish his explicit lyric, as to not upset the CBS censors.
Stewart last stopped by The Late Show during the Republican National Convention, both to help Colbert return to his former Colbert Report persona, and to speak out against Fox News’ Sean Hannity for throwing his support behind Trump. It is unknown whether he might pop up again this week, with Colbert set for a live Election Night special on Showtime, and another live episode on CBS Wednesday.
Thoughts on Jon Stewart’s latest Late Show drop-in? Happy the former Daily Show host was in some way able to contribute to Election Week late-night coverage?
