Stephen Colbert and John Stewart have reunited for a sketch that attempts to “make sense of Trump’s candidacy” for US President.
The two have a long history of working together – Colbert first came to wide prominence as a correspondent on Jon Stewart’s long stint hosting Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, before he went off to host his own spin-off show, The Colbert Report. They infrequently appeared on each other’s shows before leaving those respective programmes to pursue other ventures: Colbert is now the host of The Late Show, while Stewart is working on other projects.
However, Colbert called upon his old comedy partner last night (July 18) for a Late Show skit that saw the host and Stewart try to make sense of how Trump has risen so successfully through the ranks to defeat the other hopefuls for the party’s nomination.
Watch the sketch below.
Back in December, Stewart appeared on Colbert’s chat show for another sketch that sent up Trump. Appearing on The Late Show to raise awareness for 9/11 first responders, the two got to talking about the billionaire’s run for The White House, which led to Stewart impersonating Trump. Watch the sketch below.
