Jon Stewart has made a triumphant return to “The Daily Show,” and during his first day back, he wasted no time in sharing his thoughts on the current state of the presidential race. He devoted much of his monologue to President Joe Biden’s age and expressed his skepticism about the praise that Biden’s allies have lavished on him. Despite this, however, Stewart also outlined the many ways in which Biden differs from his opponent, Donald Trump.
Stewart’s monologue was full of sharp observations, particularly when it came to Trump’s legal troubles and numerous indictments. He also criticized Trump for regularly saying things that would warrant a wellness check at his own rallies. Despite this, however, Stewart seemed to feel that as the stakes of the election are so high, it’s important to scrutinize both candidates even more heavily.
One topic that Stewart touched on was TikTok videos featuring Biden, which he found amusing and highlighted as an example of how out-of-touch some people are with reality. He also referenced a special counsel report that called into question Biden’s memory and suggested that age is a significant factor in determining who should be president.
Overall, Stewart’s return to “The Daily Show” was marked by a lively discussion about the two presidential candidates and their ages. While commentators saw him equating the aging president with his opponent, Stewart made clear during his monologue that there are significant differences between them.
