"The country will survive.”

So says Jon Stewart in a lengthy interview with The Guardian reflecting on his decision to hand in his Daily Show walking papers in a few short months. While he's handling himself with the usual dry self-deprecation that's his forte, there's no doubt that, for me and I'm sure many, many others, the notion of Stewart not being there to lampoon a presidential election is probably the hardest part of this whole thing to swallow. But as he explains, one of the reasons he's leaving before 2016 is to give his successor Trevor Noah (who has himself dealt with some controversy of late) as much of a leg-up as possible. But that's not all he talks about in this lengthy and expansive chat. Read it all here.
