And so it is finally over. Jon Stewart, surrounded by the people he worked with for almost two decades hugged it out on stage after a touching back and forth with long time cohost Stephen Colbert.
What a way to go out.
Jon Stewart returned from the media wilderness last night on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert to deliver a brutally effective skit humiliating Donald Trump and ripping apart the disastrous start to his presidency.
"What the fuck is wrong with him?" Stewart asked.
There's simply no getting around the fact that while many liberals are hailing him right now, they're either unwilling or unable to see that he's been leading them astray all this time. The truth is that Stewart and his show have, almost since the beginning, held and espoused views that are, I'm sorry to say, deeply problematic. And that means I couldn't be happier to see him finally go.
Whether Stewart's words are comforting or not, they are necessary. And soon we will have to go on without them.
