When Jon Stewart Met Dante de Blasio

By now, you’ve probably already seen the clips making the rounds of Jon Stewart’s Daily Show interview with Bill de Blasio—pizza was eaten correctly (sans silverware), Bloomberg and snow jokes were made, universal pre-K was discussed. A good time was had, generally!

Now, via the Daily Show’s Tumblr, a behind-the-scenes detail we really enjoyed: this picture of Stewart with the de Blasio men, simply captioned, “Dante de Blasio’s afro mesmerizes Jon Stewart.” (Note that he does not appear to have tried to touch it.) It’s a cute moment, and also the correct amount of coverage to devote to the subject—a lighthearted side note on social media, as opposed to, say, an entire segment of his on-air time with one of America’s most prominent politicians. Well done, per usual.
