Jon Stewart crash The Late Show With Stephen Colbert in order to support the renewal of the Zadroga Act, which provides health care to 9/11 first responders.
Stewart started with, “After the sacrifice that our first responders made –” just to be interrupted by a “Boriiing!” from Colbert. “I hate to go pro on you here, but you’ve been out of the game for a while,” he tells Stewart. “That’s got no zazz! No one’s going to listen to you unless you Trump it up a bit. The media won’t pay attention to anything at all, unless you are Donald Trump.”
Colbert brings out the Donald Trump wig he says he keeps around, in case he ever decides to say anything important, and transforms Stewart, adding that Trump Orange glow with Cheetos powder.
Stewart tried again: “These 9/11 first responders are the most top-notch, first-class, diamond-encrusted heroes America can produce,” blustered Stewart, swaggering and gesturing wildly in his best estimation of the bombastic billionaire.
“Don’t let Congress play politics with this necessary bill,” he continued. “If I am elected — and I will be elected — I will build a wall around politics and I will make politics pay for it.”
“Tweet at your congressmen with the hashtag #WorstResponders. Tell them Donald said to pull up your big-boy pants and make America great again. Pass the Zadroga Act, or I will glue Congress together, dip them in gold and wear them around my friggin’ neck. Classy! Fantastic!”
