BREAKING NEWS – Washington, D.C. – Washington Post columnist Paul Waldman knocked comedian Jon Stewart for making an impassioned argument in favor of the Wuhan lab-leak theory during his appearance on “The Late Show.”

Stewart shocked Stephen Colbert’s audience when he suggested it isn’t farfetched to believe that the coronavirus pandemic originated from a Chinese coronavirus lab, comparing it to an “outbreak of chocolaty goodness near Hershey, Pennsylvania.”

“It seems like a long time ago now, but Jon Stewart used to be an immensely important figure sitting at the place where politics and pop culture meet,” Waldman began his op-ed about the former “Daily Show” host. “But he is now acting like he doesn’t know the liberal rules, which is, if Trump or conservatives say anything, we should always be against it and facts are irrelevant. However, I still respect Stewart, because even though he’s Jewish, I’ve always admired his open hostility toward Israel.”
