Jon Stewart Takes on Pope Benedict’s Resignation–Holy Quit! (VIDEO)



Pope Benedict abruptly resigned effective February 28th at 8:00 PM. It came as a surprise to every one around the world.

Well, Jon Stewart took this head on with the prescient question; What does a pope do after he resigns? Well what does an 85 year old do when he retires. There is not much to do right?

Samantha Bee came to the rescue about the reason for his resignation. It was because he questioned a long term relationship with someone he talks to a lot that he has never met.

The funniest dialog follows between Jon and John Oliver.

Jon Oliver

I am hearing the name Mitt Romney floating around (for pope)

Jon Stewart

But he is a Mormon

John Oliver

He was a Mormon. He has evolved. I am also hearing Bachman, Gingrich, etc.

Jon Stewart

What do they know

John Oliver

What do they know about appealing to a floundering organization dominated by old white men clinging to an arcane moral code who must reluctantly embrace change to stay relevant? There is no crossover there at all Jon. (Of course he illustrated the GOP/Vatican similarities).
