Jon Stewart. He really is a national treasure, isn’t he?
The comedian has made plenty of headlines as of late, in particular for his tireless campaign to get justice for firefighters and servicemen who became sick as a result of 9/11. First responders from the atrocious attack are still awaiting their medical benefits, which prompted Stewart to deliver an angry, emotional speech to Congress.
And, just when we thought that we couldn’t love him even more, he goes and rescues a bunch of animals. Come on!
It was difficult to envision what Jon’s next step, post-TV, would be, and we never pictured this. Jon and his wife, Tracey, have long been advocates for animal rights, and they have now taken their passion a step further by opening a farm that cares for rescued and abused farm animals. It doesn’t get any more wholesome than that.
