Jon Ste­wart dresses as Trump, crit­i­cizes ‘vin­dic­tive chaos’

Cape Breton Post - - ARTS/ENTERTAINMENT -

NEW YORK — Jon Ste­wart has stopped by for­mer Com­edy Cen­tral col­league Stephen Col­bert’s show to nee­dle one of his favourite 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 overly-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 U.S. 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 is an ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer of the “Late Show.’’
