Jon Stewart on Monday took on the affair between ex-CIA Director David Petraeus and his biographer, Paul Broadwell, which was discovered after emails linked the two.
“Really? Email?” Stewart said. When Broadwell’s book came out, she appeared on The Daily Show to promote it — but Stewart had no clue there was more to the story. Hindsight being 20/20, Stewart took a fresh look at the evidence.
“The whole thing was like innuendo after innuendo, and the whole time I’m like dah,” Stewart said. “I had her right there talking about how thick a coat of awesome sauce Petraeus is bathed in. The thing never crossed my fucking mind!”
