Jon Stewart sat down with Arizona attorney general, Mark Brnovich this week, grilling the Republican on claims of fraud in the 2020 election.
After the election results, former president, Donald Trump made widespread claims suggesting that he had the election stolen from him.
As a result, the now famous Capitol Hill insurrection stands as a historical landmark of such dangerous and unverifiable claims.
Remember, just two years on, a variety of Republicans continue to push this narrative, suggesting Biden was never the worthy winner. Even before election day, Trump was keen in a number of television appearances to admit his worry over the possibility of election fraud.
Jon Stewart grills Mark Brnovich
Former Daily Show host, Jon Stewart, on the latest episode of his Apple+ show, covered the ongoing claims.
In an interview segment with Mark Brnovich, Stewart crucified the ill logic in the Republican politician’s arguments.
Brnovich began, reminding the Apple host of the widespread support across the nation of Trump’s election claims.
Stewart was quick to respond: “There’s people that believe in angels but that doesn’t mean that you launch an investigation that angels changed ballots.”
The two then battled on when Brnovich would finally announce that the state of Arizona was fairly won by Biden.
Stumbling on specifics, he told Stewart: “Donald Trump lost Arizona, period. I’ve said that from the very beginning. There have been isolated incidents thus far which we have identified and we are prosecuting.”
The attorney general stubbornly stated that the electorate can still “draw their own conclusions” on who really won the race for the state.
“No, people cannot draw their own conclusions. That’s the point of the law,” Stewart insisted.
Back in 2021, an IPSOS / Reuters poll suggested that 53% of Republican voters were still adamant that Trump won the election.
The former president, clearly aware of such reports, has since made a number of hints towards a second run for president. This time, however, Trump will have to compete with the emerging support of the highly popular conservative governor, Ron DeSantis, should he run.
Viewers of The Problem with Jon Stewart have applauded the host for his straight-shooting interview.
“It seems the guy is so afraid of the Arizona GOP he can’t admit the 2020 election in Arizona had no fraud. Jon knows how to do this so well,” one user on Twitter wrote this week.
The full interview will be available for all to watch come October 28. Will you be tuning in?
