Stewart Starting to Think Olympics in Ex ‘Evil Empire’ Might Have Been a Bad Idea…

Jon Stewart‘s starting to suspect holding the Olympics in Sochi, Russia might not have been the best idea. For one thing, the water is “toxic tap piss” that is apparently unsafe to wash a human face with, which Stewart referred to as “water with a double black diamond rating.”

On top of that, in denying how bad the water is, Russia basically admitted they have cameras watching the showers, which isn’t helping. So correspondent Jason Jones traveled to Moscow to see what all the hubbub’s about, and concluded, “This place looks a lot like America, just with a f*cked-up alphabet.”

Jones faced off with a Russian official over the good old days when Russia was the “evil empire,” but now there’s an ice rink where they used to hang people. Oh, and for the icing on the communist cake: Jones actually got to talk to Gorbachev. Yeah, that Gorbachev.
