Jon Stewart, long a hair-clutching foil to Glenn Beck’s hysterics, delivered an epic final blow to the conservative pundit Thursday night. In response to the revelation that Beck would be “transitioning out of his show” later this year, Stewart adopted Beck’s format instead of The Daily Show’s usual cold open, to great effect.
Stewart spent four segments (embedded below) “telling the truth while wearing glasses” and “f*cking your ears with the truth” while theorizing on reasons for Beck’s departure (the world is ending, Jesus is coming, etc.).
Sit back and Stewart’s genius eulogy for Beck’s hysteria. This footage originally aired on Comedy Central’s Daily Show with Jon Stewart on April 7, 2011.
