In an effort to combat the numerous sexual misconduct allegations against Moore, his people are now sending out a bogus robo-call from a man claiming to be Bernie Bernstein, a "reporter" from The Washington Post. In the automated call, Bernstein asks "if anyone at this address is a female between the ages of 54 to 57 years old willing to make damaging remarks about candidate Roy Moore for a reward of between $5,000 and $7,000."
"I'm going to go out on a limb and say this Bernie Bernstein is not a real Washington Post reporter," Noah said Thursday night, noting that the man's voice sounds "like a New York Jewish voice based on hearing a friend describe a Woody Allen movie."
"I was actually just trying to promote 'Night of Too Many Stars' on HBO," he later admitted. "It's a benefit to raise money for autism services."
Stewart said he stopped by his old stomping grounds to thank Noah for participating in the benefit. "The Daily Show" crew decided to raffle off a chance for a viewer to be interviewed by Noah on the set of the Comedy Central show. He promised to fly the winner and a friend to New York and accommodate lodging. The only thing Noah asked is that those who enter to win make a donation to Next For Autism.
"You don't need anti-Semitism to come onto the show, Jon," Noah joked. "You could have just asked me."
"I don't need it," Stewart said. "I just like it that way. It's how I function best."
