Trevor Noah is doing a splendid job replacing Jon Stewart on The Daily Show, but Stewart can’t really be replaced. The former Daily Show star on Tuesday reminded us why we miss him so much. Stewart was a guest of his former correspondent, Stephen Colbert, on The Late Show, where he mocked Donald Trump’s first days in office as only he can.
Wearing the appropriate dead animal on his head and incredibly long tie, fashion elements he picked up from the president, Stewart told Colbert that he has copies of the various executive orders that President Trump will soon issue.
Stewart said that Trump will order China to “immediately and without hesitation” send their wall over so that it can be used on America’s border with Mexico.
He also revealed that a second executive order will institute a new language for Trump’s staff: bullshit. Said language shall not be used at all times. That way they won’t be able to use “facts and real information” at home.
Finally, a third order deals with Trump’s exhausting presidency so far and his need for constant adulation from the masses. Stewart’s last order is practically a message to Americans to not be exhausted by Trump complete with the Star Wars reference we didn’t see coming.
“It is going to take relentless stamina, vigilance, and every institutional check and balance” to make sure Trump does not get to go “full Palpatine.”
“We have never faced this before: purposeful, vindictive chaos,” Stewart said, as he went through his final executive order.
“But perhaps therein lies the saving grace of my, Donald J. Trump’s, presidency. No one action will be adequate. All actions will be necessary. And if we do not allow Donald Trump to exhaust our fight and somehow come through this presidency calamity-less, and constitutionally, partially intact, then I, Donald J. Trump, will have demonstrated the greatness of America — just not the way I thought I was gonna.”
