Jon Stewart offered a tribute to the people of Boston at the opening of his show last night.
"Thank you for, in the face of gross inhumanity, inspiring and solidifying my belief in humanity and the people of this country...Oftentimes [NYC and Boston] are accusing each other of various levels of suckitude. But it is in situations like this that we realize it is clearly a sibling rivalry and that we are your brothers and sisters. In this type of event, as a city that knows the feeling of confusion, anger, and grief, and chaos that comes with these events, I can tell you from personal experience, you’ve got a hell of a city going there. And you’ve done an incredible job in the face of all of this."
Colbert took a more humorous approach, offered a similar message:
"When those bombs went off, there were runners who after those bombs went off kept running another two miles to the hospital to donate blood. So, here's what I know. These maniacs may have tried to make life bad for the people of Boston, but all they could do is really show how good those people are."
Watch both, AFTER THE JUMP...
