Before Trevor Noah…
Before Jimmy Kimmel…
There was Jon Stewart.
He was the late night comedian who essentially used his platform to politicize late night entertainment.
He railed against the Bush administration and the Iraq war.
In many ways, he was the gateway to comedians using their platforms to politicize comedy.
And now he’s back… and he’s shocking the same liberal audiences he helped create.
Appearing on Colbert’s show, Jon Stewart STUNNED liberals.
He agreed that COVID-19 appears to not only be man-made, but that it also escaped from a Wuhan lab…
It’s not some “right-wing conspiracy nut” saying this.
This is Jon Stewart.
One of the most revered icons of the left.

Here are the videos of the two segments in which Jon Stewart — the first guest on Stephen Colbert's return to in-person studio — used his entire time to insist that COVID came from the Wuhan lab, not naturally, while mocking those who don't believe thishttps://t.co/vzJzucPF7V

What is particularly stunning is that Stewart didn’t just mention this once.
He essentially used his entire time on the Colbert show to push the Wuhan lab-leak theory!
Yahoo News confirms:
Comedian Jon Stewart seemed to endorse the theory that the novel coronavirus leaked from a laboratory in Wuhan, China, during an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Monday night.
“I think we owe a great debt of gratitude to science,” Stewart said. “Science has, in many ways, helped ease the suffering of this pandemic, which was more than likely caused by science.”
Colbert asked, “Do you mean perhaps there’s a chance that this was created in a lab?”
“A chance?” Stewart said. “Oh my god, there’s a novel respiratory coronavirus overtaking Wuhan, China, what do we do? Oh, you know who we could ask? The Wuhan novel respiratory coronavirus lab. The disease is the same name as the lab. That’s just a little too weird!”
Stewart then joked that when scientists were asked about the theory, the response was “maybe a bat flew into the cloaca of a turkey and then it sneezed into my chili and now we all have coronavirus?”
“What about this,” Stewart went on. “There’s been an outbreak of chocolatey goodness near Hershey, Pennsylvania, what do you think happened? I don’t know, maybe a steam shovel made it with a cocoa bean. Or it’s the f***ing chocolate factory!”
Colbert pushed back on the claim, asking Stewart “how long have you worked for Senator Ron Johnson?”
After the show returned from a commercial break, Stewart continued to discuss science in the context of the pandemic.
“Can I say this about science?” he asked.
“You can say anything you [want], some of my best friends are scientists,” Colbert said.
“And I love them, and they do such good work, but they are going to kill us all,” Stewart responded.
The theory that coronavirus leaked from a laboratory in Wuhan has received renewed scrutiny over the past several weeks, and President Biden has ordered the U.S. intelligence community to assess the theory within the next 90 days.

To be honest, Jon Stewart is just stating the obvious.
The reality is that this has been obvious for quite some time to anyone who has been paying any attention.
Former CDC chief Robert Redfield also believes that COVID came from a Chinese lab.
Isn’t Redfield also an expert?
If we’re told to trust the experts, then shouldn’t we trust Redfield’s assessment?
According to the New York Post, Redfield appeared to blame China:
Former CDC Director Robert Redfield defended the theory that COVID-19 escaped from a Chinese lab, arguing the deadly bug’s efficient human-to-human spread contradicted the behavior of other deadly coronaviruses with similar profiles — and was simply not “biologically plausible.”
“I said before that I didn’t think it was biologically plausible that COVID-19 went from a bat to some unknown animal into man and now had become one of the most infectious viruses,” Redfield said during an interview with Fox News.
“That’s not consistent with how other coronaviruses have come into the human species. And, it does suggest that there’s an alternative hypothesis that it went from a bat virus, got into a laboratory, where in the laboratory, it was taught, educated, it evolved, so that it became a virus that could efficiently transmit human to human,” he added.
Redfield, a 20-year veteran of the US Army Medical Corps who co-founded the University of Maryland’s Institute of Human Virology, recently said leading scientists were among those who assailed him after a March 26 appearance on CNN during which he endorsed the “lab-leak” theory.
The virologist, who led the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention during the height of the pandemic, was interviewed along with Dr. Marc Siegel, a professor of medicine at the NYU Langone Medical Center.
He argued that COVID-19’s efficient human-to-human spread contradicted the behavior of other deadly bugs, such as SARS and MERS, which first infected people through animal contact but spread at a much slower pace, Fox News reported.
Public calls to investigate the lab-leak theory — once dismissed in China and by many American media outlets as a conspiracy — have gained momentum after the Wall Street Journal reported that three scientists at the Wuhan Institute of Virology sought treatment for symptoms consistent with COVID-19 in late 2019.
Redfield expressed disappointment in what he described as a “lack of openness” in the scientific community to “pursue both hypotheses.”
“I’m just giving my best opinion as a virologist, and I don’t think it’s plausible that this virus went from a bat to an animal — we still don’t know that animal — and then went into humans and immediately had learned how to be human-to-human transmissible to the point of now causing one of the greatest pandemics we’ve had in the history of the world,” Redfield told Fox News.
Last month, President Biden said the US intelligence community had “coalesced around two likely scenarios” about the pandemic’s origins but had yet to reach a firm conclusion — and called on officials to present their best findings within 90 days.
Redfield also voiced doubt about the integrity of the World Health Organization, which concluded in a joint report with China that a lab leak was “extremely unlikely.”
He argued the WHO was “too compromised” by Beijing’s influence to carry out a truly transparent probe.
“Clearly, they were incapable of compelling China to adhere to the treaty agreements that they have on global health, because they didn’t do that. Clearly, they allowed China to define the group of scientists that could come and investigate,” Redfield told the news outlet. “That’s not consistent with their role.”
Earlier this month, a former State Department official revealed in a bombshell report that staffers were warned against investigating the origin of COVID-19 because it would “open a can of worms.”
Thomas DiNanno, former acting assistant secretary of the State Department’s Bureau of Arms Control, Verification, and Compliance, also told Vanity Fair that the warning “smelled like a cover-up.”
“I wasn’t going to be part of it,” he said.
While we don’t agree with Stewart’s politics, we’re glad that he’s opening the eyes of many leftists.
As we have always said: the truth comes out sooner or later!
