We’ve missed you, Jon!
Well last night, Stewart gave us what we’ve all been missing as he returned to the hit comedy news show — but it wasn’t all laughs.
Though the former late night host received several cheers from the audience, Jon actually stopped by the show to help bring attention to the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act. This act, which expired on October 1 this year, helped to pay for the medical ailments 9/11 first responders have suffered including cancer, respiratory and digestive disorders, as well as mental health conditions.
So the funnyman did what he does best and took a group of 9/11 responders to the U.S. Capitol to visit officers of senators in hopes of having them pass the act permanently.
Ch-ch-check out the funny and eye-opening video (below) and let us know your feelings about Stewart’s message!
