Jon Stewart makes comeback as ‘vindictive’ Trump

Former ‘Daily Show’ presenter stops by the ‘Late Show’ to lampoon US president’s executive orders

NEW YORK — After a stint out of the public eye, Jon Stewart has stopped by former Comedy Central colleague Stephen Colbert’s show to needle one of his favorite targets, President Donald Trump.

The former “Daily Show” host appeared on Tuesday night’s “Late Show” dressed as the Republican. He wore a suit with an over-long red power tie and mocked Trump’s hair by wearing a stuffed animal on his head.

Stewart mocked Trump’s flurry of executive orders by reading faux proclamations from the president, including demanding China immediately send the US the Great Wall in order to secure the Mexican border.

Stewart turned more serious at the end of the bit, saying the country has never faced what he called Trump’s “purposeful, vindictive chaos” before.

Stewart, an executive producer of the “Late Show,” was famously mocked by Trump in 2013 for changing his name from Leibowitz to Stewart, in what some saw as an anti-Semitic insult.

At the time, Stewart shot back that Trump’s real name was Fuckface von Clownstick.
