The Late Show’s Stephen Colbert turned his desk over to Stewart: and boy did he have a lot to say!
“Trump lies more in one press conference than CNN does in a year. I mean, this whole thing just makes me so crazy!”
Stewart had a strong statement for the members of the press who are calling Trump’s attacks “un-American,” telling them to “stop your whining.”
“He constantly says the phrase ‘believe me.’ Nobody says ‘believe me’ unless they’re lying.”
Speaking directly to the media, Stewart said:
“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.”
Stewart dismantled Trump’s lies about the size of his electoral college win, the country’s murder rate, and perhaps most disturbingly, his dismissal of concerns over anti-Semitic attacks on Jewish centers.
“You try to defend him… You’ll see. We can change him! He’ll get presidential!’ 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.
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.
“I think this breakup is going to be the best thing that ever happened to you.”
Thanks for telling it like it is, Jon! Journalism is more important now in this time of obvious deceit than ever before!
***SHARE if you agree with Jon that Americans need to TAKE ACTION against Trump! Comment if you’re thankful journalists are working so hard to get information to us – when the White House is working AGAINST THEM!
