Watch Jon Stewart Apologizing for Telling CNN He Did Not Vote

Jon Stewart on CNN

Jon Stewart apologized to his viewers for having told CNN this afternoon that he had not voted, he was just being flip, he didn’t want to send the message that voting was not important, etc.

Kind of shows you Jon Stewart does not expect his viewers to have a sense of humor…

So, after his comment to Christiane Amanpour started picking up the wrath of the unamused masses, Stewart rushed to declare he’d made it up. Just to be funny. Kind of.

Talking to Amanpour hours earlier, about his new movie Rosewater and the midterm elections, she had asked him, “Did you vote?”

“No, ” he said.

“No?!” she’d exclaimed.

“I just moved. I don’t know even where my thing is now, ” he said.

First of all, I’ve known where my thing is since I was 13, ” Stewart told his The Daily Show audience at the top of tonight’s live election-results episode. “To set the record straight, I did vote today. … I was being flip, and it kind of took off. I shouldn’t have been flip about that. … It sent a message that I didn’t think voting was important or that I didn’t think it was a big issue. And I do, and I did vote. I was being flip, and I shouldn’t have done that. That was stupid. So, I apologize.”
