Jon Stewart Reacts To Lance Armstrong Doping Admission: ‘I Shelled Out $1’ For You!

Jon Stewart on Tuesday reacted to Lance Armstrong’s fall from grace. The disgraced cyclist reportedly told Oprah Winfrey in an interview set to air on Thursday that he used performance-enhancing drugs during his long career.

“I believed in you, Lance Armstrong!” Stewart said. “I shelled out a dollar for a rubber bracelet that I have somewhere in my house. For you!”In hindsight, Stewart said, it seems obvious that Armstrong was doping. “Any idiot with half a brain should have been able to see Armstrong was lying,” Stewart said, then running a 2006 interview he did with the cyclist.

“Nailed it again,” he said of his interview. “You know what, for as good at interviewing as I am, I would not be surprised if Armstrong was also banging David Petraeus.”
