Jon Stewart’s political satire took up ranks with the more serious journalists covering the convention in Tampa this week. Stewart hosted Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) as the show’s first guest this week.

The show, which was broadcast from the David J. Straz Center for Performing Arts, mocked Tampa’s strip club culture and humid weather– and giant bugs. Rubio and Stewart got into an extended discussion about the benefits of the stimulus, tax reform and the role of big government, which had to be cut short for the show broadcast.

Stewart congratulated Rubio for “dodging” the vice presidency, saying, “As his vice president, it would have been uncomfortable for you to run against him in 2016, so I think this is much better for you.”
