“I was saying Donald Rumsfeld, because he started a war for no reason and lied a lot about it and like kept lying about it, even on the show,” Stewart said. “And I felt like, oh, I’ll nail him on that, and he’ll be like, ‘[expletive]. It’s the end of the road for old Donnie Rumsfeld.”
“But I didn’t,” added Stewart.
“I don’t think you can really blame yourself for that though, honestly,” said Moss, trying to cheer him up.
