Conservatives applauded Jon Stewart's for embracing the coronavirus lab leak theory on The Late Show's first post-pandemic episode.
The former Daily Show host was Stephen Colbert's guest on Monday night for the show's first full-audience production at the Ed Sullivan Theater since the pandemic began. Stewart and Colbert butted heads after Stewart voiced support for the theory that Covid came from a Chinese laboratory.
"And how long have you worked for Senator Ron Johnson?" Colbert asked during the exchange. This was clearly a jab at the Wisconsin senator " a longtime believer in the lab leak theory. But Stewart stood by his argument that "this is not a conspiracy."
