Jon Stewart releases pent-up anger about Trump on ‘Late Show’


Jon Stewart appeared on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert,” Feb. 27.

“Yes, I miss it!” declared Jon Stewart, last night, about the opportunity to vent about politics on late night television. He added that he spends his days “yelling about Trump to the animals” on his Colts Neck farm.

In a 10-minute segment, “Late Show” host (and former “Daily Show” correspondent) Stephen Colbert let the former “Daily Show” host sit at his desk and rant about the president. You can watch the segment below.

“Trump lies more in one press conference than CNN does in a year,” said Stewart. “And this is coming from a guy who, as you know, hates CNN.”

He also talked about Trump’s constant use of the phrase “Believe me” (“Nobody says ‘believe me’ unless they are lying”) and advised the media to “stop your whining.” 

“So I heard Donald Trump broke up with you,” he told the media. “It 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. It is time for you to get your groove back. … 

“This breakup with Donald Trump has given you, the media, an amazing opportunity for self-reflection and improvement. 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 go back into the briefings, do something for yourself. Self-improvement. Take up a hobby.

“I recommend journalism.”
