Stewart to Putin: ‘You Realize Olympic Wins Are Not Internationally Binding, Right?’

Jon Stewart is starting to think that Russia’s Olympic gold medals went to Vladimir Putin‘s head, tackling Putin’s “disturbingly shirtless aggression” against Ukraine, asking, “You realize Olympic wins are not internationally binding, right?” And beyond that, Stewart wondered if the parade of nations was just a “browsing opportunity” for Putin.

Stewart mocked Russia’s denials over the whole troops-in-Crimea thing, mockingly wondering why a neighbor can’t “throw an armed surprise party for a small part of Ukraine” without everybody just jumping to conclusions. Stewart also caught Putin in “a classic Daily Show gotcha moment” that will most assuredly make this tyrant feel very bad about himself.

And then newest correspondent Jordan Klepper made his debut and did his best to make Stewart proud before nervously breaking the fourth wall on the whole report.
