Jon Stewart Makes Surprise Appearance on The Late Show with Advice for the Media
On Monday night’s episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, a mostly gray Jon Stewart, comedian and former host of The Daily Show, literally popped up from underneath Colbert’s desk to talk about the media and voice his frustrations about President Trump as the crowd erupted in cheers.
Unable to stay away from the political spotlight for too long, Stewart was eager to talk about the Trump reign. An excited Stewart, after joking that he has a tunnel running from his farm to Colbert’s desk stated, “I miss it!” Adding “I spend the whole day yelling about Trump to the animals.”
Not only did Stewart have a message for the media he also had somethings to point out about President Trump. As Stewart found the camera, he stated, “Trump lies more in one press conference than CNN does in a year, and this is coming from a guy who hates CNN.”
Stewart had the audience laughing as he admitted, “nobody says believe me unless they are lying.” It was clear Stewart wasn’t holding much back with his opinions about President Trump’s credibility, as he never has.
Stewart’s opinions are no secret as he’s openly expressed his dislike for President Trump in the past, making it clear throughout his time on The Daily Show how much of a Trump fan he is not. Stewart showcased his disliking for Trump even up until the last days of hosting The Daily Show in 2015, where Trevor Noah has taken residence as the show’s frontman, host, and speaks openly about his anti-Trump views.
Stewart, perched next to Colbert, called upon the media and amusingly urged to “kick him [Trump] to the curb.” Stewart concluded his rant on The Late Show by offering the media some advice, “do something for yourself, take up a hobby. I recommend journalism,” having the audience in stitches in typical Jon Stewart fashion.
