The interviewer had good intentions. He took Schumer out for breakfast, something that can energize anyone at the beginning of the day. But then the breakfast’s setting was revealed—a New York City diner—and Jon Stewart, commenting on the interview on The Daily Show, was distraught.
“What have you done?” Stewart exclaimed. “You brought an old New York Jewish man to a diner! You realize what this means? You will never end up talking about the Iran deal, you’ll just end up talking about the fucking diner.”
And he was right. Diner talk was the only thing on Schumer’s mind, which simultaneously frustrated political junkies and gave diner enthusiasts some great ideas to improve their brunches.
After all that breakfast talk, Schumer finally admitted that he hadn’t even read the text of the Iran deal yet. Think of all the things that were never accomplished because two people went to a diner to brainstorm about them.
