Jon Stewart Injures Himself on 'Daily Show' Fake Press Conference (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jun 8th 2011 5:16AM
'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'A very funny bit got even funnier on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) when reality invaded fiction. In a send-up of Rep. Anthony Weiner's press-conference about his Twitter photo scandal, Jon Stewart cut himself making a frozen cocktail drink.

Yes, it's a completely absurd scenario, but the result was a somewhat serious cut that certainly was bleeding well. Ever the professional -- or not willing to do it over again -- Stewart muscled through, chastising himself for not being harder on Weiner, and then ultimately resigned from 'The Daily Show.'

When John Oliver came out to announce he was taking over, even he had to acknowledge the injury. "That's a genuine problem," he admitted.

"We better hurry up this f****** bit because I am bleeding out, motherf*****!" Stewart shouted.

"Don't be so Jewish about it, you're fine," Oliver chastised.

And the show did indeed go on, with Stewart favoring his uninjured hand throughout, and having the other hand bandaged by the end. Maybe we'll find out Wednmesday night if he ended up at the hospital over it.

It’s a shame they couldn't save him... but just think of all the poor people that he left his millions to that will truly benefit from this loss of liberal talent, in his prime. We will all miss you John. I say me erect a statue in front of Pepe’s liquor in honor of John and hold meetings every Friday night at 2:00am in his honor…. It will give us something to piss on.

jon's audence is made up of younger people who believe his show contains real news. in 20 years, they may figure out they are being led down the garden path. 50 years of entitlements have made things worse, not better. vote all the congress out. let's start over with one new ammendment. congress and federal employees get the same plans we do. that includes ssi, medicare, health care, and etc. they must follow the same laws we do. if not they go to jail, where probably 20% of them should be now!

The reason I don't like Steward is the same as to why I dislke Rush Limbaugh. They are both bullies who make fun (even down to the way people look and speak). The only difference is Steward is a bully for the left and Limbeaug is a assclown for the right. And don't tell me that Steward makes fun of everyone. Yes, 2% of his jokes are at democratic expence, but, they are mostly like Limbaughs jokes at the right, about how cowardly they are and how they should plow everybody who doesn't aggree with them under. Frankly, I won't think either are down the middle till they attack Beck and Reid with equal venom.

iF more people were as funny as John, would be such a great place to live. He softens the tone on some pretty horrifying situations, and makes me realize not to take things so seriously.
Unfortunately we have still these "fake christian" bush retard hillbillies that are full of hate.
