Jon Stewart discusses the age of the two presidential candidates, Joe Biden and Donald Trump, and emphasizes the importance of voters scrutinizing both candidates.

Stewart said, “We have two candidates who are chronologically outside the norm of anyone who has run for the presidency in the history of this country, breaking the record that they set.”

“We’re not suggesting neither man is vibrant, productive or even capable,” he continued.

“But they’re both stretching the limits of being able to handle the toughest job in the world. What’s crazy is thinking that we are the ones, as voters, who must silence concerns and criticisms. It is the candidates’ job to assuage concerns, not the voters job not to mention them,” joked the former ‘Daily Show’ host.

“The stakes of this election don’t make Donald Trump’s opponent less subject to scrutiny,” he explained.

“It actually makes him more subject to scrutiny. If the barbarians are at the gate, you want Conan standing on the ramparts, not ‘Chocolate Chip Cookie Guy’ (Joe Biden),” mocked Stewart.

He also emphasized the ongoing work needed to create a better world, regardless of who wins the election.

“I’ve learned one thing over these last nine years, and I was glib at best and probably dismissive at worst about this: The work of making this world resemble one that you would prefer to live in is a lunch pail [expletive] job, day in and day out, where thousands of committed, anonymous, smart and dedicated people bang on closed doors and pick up those that are fallen and grind away on issues until they get a positive result, and even then, have to stay on to make sure that result holds. So, the good news is, I’m not saying you don’t have to worry about who wins the election. I’m saying you have to worry about every day before it and every day after, forever. Although, on the plus side, I am told that at some point, the sun will run out of hydrogen,” concluded Stewart.
