The mayor’s race returned to late-night TV last night, with both The Daily Show and Colbert Report offering their takes on next Tuesday’s primary.
Back at the helm after an extended absence, Daily Show host Jon Stewart directly went after front-runner Bill de Blasio’s tall stature.
“How large is Bil de Blasio? Did that guy fall right off a bean stalk?” he asked, turning to assail Anthony Weiner for his controversies on the campaign trail.
The Colbert Report devoted one of its segments to Albany politics last night, complete with a particularly amusing image of Governor Andrew Cuomo with a The Cat in the Hat-style hat on. The topic? Mr. Cuomo pushing the State Legislature to combine any pay raise for themselves with several other policies he would like to be passed. However, Stephen Colbert, as he is wont to do, focused solely on the Cuomo-backed legislation reducing the penalty for having less than 25 grams of marijuana to a violation.
