Jon Stewart Fight Back Tears When He Receives 9-11 Responders’ Gift

Comedian Jon Stewart usually makes people laugh till their sides split, but he was brought to tears by an incredible gift from firefighters.

Just before he could testify at a judicial committee over congress’s failure to ensure a 9/11 victims’ compensation fund never runs out, he was given the turnout coat of legendary firefighter Ray Pfeifer who died due to 9/11 related cancer.

He then went on to give a fiery testimony before the House Judiciary Committee on the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund, it was passed unanimously by the panel.

Pfeifer had died back in 2017 and Stewart had given the eulogy.
