Jon Stewart Takes Over the ‘Late Show’ Desk to Talk Trump, Fox News, and the Election

By

Jon Stewart already made one special Late Show appearance earlier this week, but given yesterday’s news that Fox News chairman and CEO Roger Ailes is stepping down, it seemed only right that Stephen Colbert let Stewart come back to take over the Late Show desk. Focusing on Sean “Lumpy” Hannity, Stewart outlines out how hypocritical the Fox News anchor has been with the reasons he hates President Obama and supports Republican nominee Donald Trump, then Stewart spells out the real meaning of “Make America Great Again” and Lumpy’s hypocrisy. “You just want that person to give you your country back because you feel that you’re this country’s rightful owners. There’s only one problem with that: This country isn’t yours. You don’t own it,” he says. “You don’t own patriotism, you don’t own Christianity, you sure as hell don’t own respect for the bravery and sacrifice of military, police, and firefighters. Trust me. I saw a lot of people on the convention floor in Cleveland with their ‘Blue Lives Matter’ rhetoric who either remained silent or actively fought against the 9/11 first responders bill reauthorization. I see you, and I see your bullshit. I see it.”
