Stewart said half-jokingly to Howard Stern this morning that he got “lazy” near the end of his Daily Show run. “I think I got to a point where I kind of didn’t think I could do anything else with it,” Stewart said. “And thank God I did, because before Trump came, you need somebody who’s 32, 33, still has that type of energy — that type of stamina. That fire to go at it. I think I would have phoned it in.” Stewart adds: “I felt like it was absolutely the right time.” ALSO: Listen to Stern's full interview with Stewart.
