Somebody get Jon Stewart a calendar

Last night, the Daily Show graphics team earned an eye roll from Jon Stewart, when they titled his segment on donations to the Clinton Foundation by foreign governments while Hillary was Secretary of State: “Really?” he asked. “A little old reference, but all right.”

No, not all right. For my younger readers, that’s a reference to Dirty Dancing, which came out in 1987. This, literally minutes after Jon Stewart dropped the movie Tootsie, which released in 1982:

Both, for the record, released long after Stewart’s beloved Star Wars. Someone’s getting old, Jon, and it isn’t just your writers.

Speaking of his impending departure from the Daily Show, I’m having second thoughts about somebody getting Jon Stewart a calendar. Please, nobody tell him when August 6th arrives.
