Jon Stewart Will Leave Earth in a Rocket if Donald Trump Is Elected President: 'Clearly This Planet's Gone Bonkers'
"If I would have known what life was like on the other side, I probably would have left sooner," Jon Stewart said of exiting The Daily Show
Though the real estate tycoon’s bombastic campaign speeches would have been perfect fodder for Stewart’s Daily Show, the Emmy winner told reporters he’s not going through TV withdrawal.
“If I would have known what life was like on the other side, I probably would have left sooner. It’s f—— fun out there,” he said at the awards show. “You can do whatever you want during the day. You can get a smoothie at 2.”
And the comedian said he wouldn’t ever consider coming back, even if Trump does move into the White House.
“I would consider getting in a rocket and going to another planet,” he cracked, “because clearly this planet’s gone bonkers.”
