The Daily Show returned from break this week and Jon Stewart started the broadcast off by addressing the elephant in the room—the backlash against future Daily Show host Trevor Noah due to several offensive and/or bad tweets.

Stewart lends his words of support to Noah, suggesting that in due time, the host will have earned everyone’s respect. Or, you know, not.

With so many people in the world, and with all those people doing stuff (good and bad) pretty much constantly, it’s hard to expect everyone to like and respect the same thing at the same time, but with any luck, sometimes people will like and respect the new Daily Show, just as they sometimes do now.
