Jon Stewart makes late-night TV great again
American hero Jon Stewart emerged from his bunker Thursday to join his old pal Stephen Colbert on The Late Show.
Looking fresh out of survivalist training, Stewart gave us much-missed commentary on this week’s Republican National Convention and Roger Ailes’ exit from Fox News.
He had one message for Donald Trump, and the machinery that nominated him: “I see your bullshit.”
Either Lumpy and friends are lying about being bothered by thin-skinned, authoritarian, less-than-Christian readers-of-prompter being president, or they don’t care, as long as it’s their thin-skinned prompter authoritarian tyrant narcissist. You just want that person to give you your country back, because you feel that you are this country’s rightful owner. The only problem with that: This country isn’t yours. You don’t own it.
There was plenty of BS like that in Trump’s address to the RNC.
CBS censors were less than pleased with Stewart, but the crowd loved it. Watch the segment above.
