Jon Stewart rips Trump, calls on media to ‘stop your whining’ and hold him accountable

Jon Stewart returned to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Monday night to slam Trump for his treatment of the media, but also accuse the media of obsessing over him. “I mean, this whole thing just makes me so crazy!” Stewart exclaimed as he appeared from below Stephen’s desk.

First dressing down Trump for his attacks on the press, Stewart said, “I can’t believe the guy’s got the balls to get away with that. Trump lies more in one press conference than CNN does in a year, and that’s coming from a guy who, as you know, hates CNN.”

He then ran down a few of Trump’s biggest lies before turning his attention to the media itself. “I heard Donald Trump broke up with you. Stings a little, doesn’t it? You finally thought you’d met your match: a blabbermouth who’s as thin-skinned and narcissistic as you are. Well, now it’s over! Well, good riddance, I say. Kick. Him. To. The. Curb.”

“You try to defend him. ‘Oh, no, no, that’s just primaries Donald. That’s just election Donald. You’ll see. We can change him! He’ll get presidential!’” Stewart remarked. “Yeah, how’d that work out? It didn’t. You know why? Because 70-year-old men don’t get less cranky or racist as time goes by.”

“This breakup has given you an amazing opportunity for self-reflection and improvement,” Stewart concluded. “Instead of worrying about whether Trump is un-American or if he thinks you’re the enemy or if he’s being mean to you or if he’s going to let you back in the briefings, do something for yourself. Take up a hobby. I recommend journalism.”

  1. Used to be a time when those media outlets were known for exposing facts, and writing the ugly truth.
    Hopefully they’ll get that back.
    You don’t need to be in Trumps briefings to expose him as a president with conflucts of interest.
    Get on it!!!
