If Donald Trump is elected president, Jon Stewart says he will hop on the first rocket to Mars—which would not bode well for his newest endeavor. The former Daily Show host and his wife Tracey announced plans to open a sanctuary for animals on their 12-acre farm in Middletown, New Jersey.
The Huffington Post reports that the safe haven will be the New Jersey branch of Farm Sanctuary housing not only abused and neglected animals, but human advocates as well. "We bought a farm in New Jersey, with the intention of starting a farm sanctuary of our own," Tracey said at Farm Sanctuary's annual gala over the weekend. "We're getting married. Farm Sanctuary and us, we're getting married."
Her commitment to animals isn’t a new thing. Tracey’s website moomah.com is all about improving the lives of animals and she even parlayed that into a book titled Do Unto Animals. "I do feel like what Farm Sanctuary does is they do rescue and sanctuary of animals. And then without realizing it, they also do rescue and sanctuary for people," she added.
Jon Stewart also voiced his support for the cause, in very Jon Stewart fashion. "I've spent the last 20 years immersed in the world of Washington politics and the media landscape, so I don't know how to deal necessarily with people who have empathy," he said, according to Yahoo.
