Jon Stewart kicked off his Wednesday installment of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” with a short but moving tribute to the people of Boston and their courage as they grapple with the repercussions of the Boston Marathon bombing.
“Thank you for once again in the face of gross inhumanity for inspiring and solidifying my belief in humanity and the people of this country,” he said. “Thank you for everything you’ve done. That’s quite a little city you’ve got going on up there.”
Stewart referenced the historic rivalry between New York and Boston.
“It is in situations like this that we realize that it is clearly a sibling rivalry,” he said. “We are your brothers and sisters in these types of events. I can tell you from personal experience you’ve got a hell of a city.”
