Even during trying times, fortunately the country still has national treasures Dave Chappelle and Jon Stewart to help sort things out.

Thursday night, Stewart joined Chappelle during the latter’s run of shows at Radio City Music Hall in New York. He used his guest spot to go after Donald Trump and the president’s response to the violence that arose in Charlottesville, Virginia, last week.

New York Times culture writer Sopan Deb transcribed Stewart’s comments.

“Strange, strange times. I have to admit,” Stewart continued. “I did not think ― it wasn’t so much that there were Nazis. It was really the reaction by certain presidents.”

During a press conference Tuesday, Trump blamed individuals “on both sides”of the Charlottesville conflict — the white supremacists gathered in a rally as well as the counterprotesters against them — for their involvement.

“The presence of two sides, mother******?” Stewart mockingly asked. “There are two sides? Mother******? Two sides?”

Per Deb, Stewart paused for cheers, continuing, “Two sides! And I believe they are called the Allied powers and the Axis powers. And we used to be with the Allied powers. This mother****** signed a treaty that I don’t think any of us knew about.”

“This is — I don’t even know what the fuck to say about a situation like this,” Stewart said later on. “I knew it would be bad because, and in the president’s defense, he is a terrible person ... I don’t think everybody who likes him is a Nazi, but everybody who is a Nazi sure does seem to like him.”
