The latest conspiracy theory comes from Egyptian writer Amr Anmar, who thinks he’s exposed Jon Stewart‘s plot to take over Egypt and turn it into a country for only the Jews.
The Daily Show host visited comedian Bassem Youssef‘s show earlier this year, a show that is similar to Stewart’s American topical comedy show. At one point, he said: “As you know, my people like to wander the desert. It’s been two weeks. I’ve got 50 weeks and 38 years left.” Ammar took this to mean that Stewart thinks “that Egypt belongs to them [the Jews], that it is his homeland.”
Perhaps that’s what Stewart was really doing when John Oliver was taking over the reigns back in NYC… but not likely.
