Irresistible for the better part of 16 years, Jon Stewart functioned as the moral conscience of a certain subset of Americans. Irresistible Unaffiliated if not precisely nonpartisan, he called bullshit on dissemblers and propagandists while offering (apparent) straight-talkers from across the political spectrum a forum in which to present themselves as rational centrists, the kind with whom one might have disagreements, but they would always be polite. In retrospect, he retired just in time. In the not-quite-five years since he handed the Daily Show baton to Trevor Noah, the rhetorical DMZ that Stewart tried to occupy has shrunk to a narrow strip, and the right-wing ecosystem he dubbed “Bullshit Mountain” has become a volcano that never stops erupting.

Irresistible is the first movie Stewart has produced since leaving The Daily Show, and it begins more or less where his career as onscreen voice of reason left off, in the spin room after the first Trump–Clinton debate. Democratic campaign strategist Gary Zimmer (Steve Carell) and his Republican counterpart Faith Brewster (Rose Byrne) would normally be furiously pumping out soundbites about how their candidate won the day, but instead they’re telling us the truth for once: They don’t care who said what, who came out ahead and who fell on their face; they’re just spinning a narrative for the media to run with. Politics, am I right?
