The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart recently joined illusionist David Blaine and basketball Hall of Famer Karl Malone in Afghanistan to visit US troops with the USO.

“It was an incredible weekend … I can’t really put it into words,” said Stewart on The Daily Show last week. "People can disagree about strategies and (politics), foreign policy and things of that nature, but hopefully we can all agree that the men and women of our armed services are giving so much to our country.

“What a great opportunity that they allowed me to go with them. They’re great people at the USO and it was a wonderful opportunity.”
