As We Enter the Trump Era, The Daily Show Holds a Memorial Service for Facts

Here are some facts: The Earth orbits the sun, water is more dense than ice, Hillary Clinton won the popular vote. They’re all true, and yet, at this juncture in history, not really that relevant anymore. In the age of fake news and “post-truth,” facts are dead, and The Daily Show has come to bury them. Good-bye, facts. Rest in peace. We’ll see you again when climate change comes for us all, whether we’re ready or not.
