(Newser) – Add Jon Stewart to the list of people who believe that on Friday, Stephen Colbert “ruined Congress.” Last night on the Daily Show, Stewart even agreed with Rep. Steny Hoyer, who said Colbert was probably more embarrassed than the House of Representatives by his fake testimony about farm laborers. “Of course Colbert is more embarrassed than the House,” Stewart said. “Colbert still has dignity and integrity left to lose.”

He went on to mock Megyn Kelly, Gretchen Carlson, and especially “arrogant douche” Tucker Carlson before expressing his relief that, “Thank God, with Colbert gone, they can get back to the business at hand” … and then showing a series of clips of Congressional failures. Later, Bill O’Reilly came on as Stewart’s guest and warned Colbert that “there’s a drone on the way,” prompting Stewart to beg him, “Don’t even joke about that.” Watch both videos in the gallery.
