Jon Stewart’s push-up loss is wounded warriors’ gain [NSFW language] [UPDATED]

3

Petraeus biographer and West Point grad Paula Broadwell challenged Jon Stewart and her husband, Scott, to a push-up competition.

The terms of the contest were the loser would pay the difference in the number of push-ups to the charity Team Red, White and Blue. It’s an organization that incorporates athletics with support for wounded veterans.

It would be hard to spoil it, since you can tell from Ms. Broadwell’s jacked arms (and her bio–she’s a triathlete) that this is not going to end well for the desk-bound Mr. Stewart. Just watch.

Ms. Broadwell tells Jeff Schogol, of sister publication Air Force Times, that Jon Stewart whipped out his checkbook on the spot and wrote a $20,000 check. Can’t break 40 push-ups, but  what a mensch.

  1. “Mensch” Spot-on! Other comedians or talk show hosts may applaud our warriors or “use” them when they talk about patriotism, but Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert have shown time and time again that they put their money where their mouths are!
    40 pushups for Stewart! Well-done!
    And Paula was great! I’m buying the book today about “Peaches”!
