But instead of completely dismissing the former vice president, Stewart claimed that he had continued to think about the alleged democratic candidate and his experience with him. While admitting that he is not crazy about Biden's "Uncle Joe" chic and his memories of Corn Pop are fading, Stewart said that Biden brings a greater truth to the table.
"All of these things ... I don't think that's the gist of who that guy really is," Stewart said. He claimed that recent events had proven: “We are a country in terrible danger. We are in pain. American state of emergency - the blindfold is gone and we see ourselves as who we really are. "
That is, when Stewart looked past the tick, he saw a man "who knows who he is". Stewart claimed that is why he believes that "at this moment the country's needs are a leader of humility".
