Jon Stewart Gets Honest About Not Believing Louis C.K. Sexual Misconduct Rumors: ‘You Get Mad at Yourself’

"You give your friends the benefit of the doubt," Stewart said during an interview on TODAY.


Jon Stewart joined Matt Lauer during the November 14 edition of “TODAY” to promote his upcoming HBO comedy event “Night of Too Many Stars,” and the comedian took some time during the interview to address Louis C.K.’s sexual misconduct.
