Jon Stewart, Donald Trump, Late Show


Jon Stewart continued his crusade to inform the public about the bill in Congress that would give 9/11 first responders health benefits with a reunion with Stephen Colbert on CBS' Late Show. Earlier this week, Stewart, who is an executive producer on Colbert's talk show, stopped by The Daily Show to inform viewers about the 2010 James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act for first responders and shame Congress regarding their inaction.

"Boring!" Colbert declared as Stewart began his pitch. "Sorry, Jon. Sorry. I hate to go pro on you here, but you've been out of the game here for a while. That's got no zazz...No one's going to listen to you, unless you—I don't know how to put this—Trump it up a little bit."

Colbert, ever the buddy, helped Stewart out by giving him orange skin (courtesy of Cheetos) and a spot-on Donald Trump wig.

"Face it Jon, the media won't pay attention to anything—it won't pay attention to anything at all, unless you are Donald Trump," Colbert said.

Then Stewart, imbued with the power of Trump, delivered the Zadroga Act speech in his best, brashy way.

Stewart encouraged voters to tweet at their representatives with the term #WorstResponders to encourage them to pass the bill.
