Jon Stewart killed it on "The Late Show."
Stephen Colbert became a household name after he stole every scene he was involved in while working on The Daily Show. Soon after, Colbert was awarded his own show, The Colbert Report. Once again, the satirical journalist won over the masses and was promoted to an even higher position, the host of The Late Show after David Letterman retired. On the most recent episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, the host brought his friend and mentor Jon Stewart along for a guest appearance. In the short segment, Colbert gives up his host chair and allows Stewart to contribute his own monologue.
Stewart is one of many late-night television hosts and journalists that have been targeted by Trump. The president of the US does not take kindly to media personalities that speak unfavorably of him, and he's taken shots at both Colbert and Stewart before. In return, Stewart used his time on The Late Show to throw some shade back at Trump. Speaking directly to the president, Stewart states, "I know you're upset about all the criticism you've taken and the 'fake news' and the 'fake late-night shows,' it's just we're all still having trouble adjusting to your presidency as it goes into its 500th year."
"Everything's off its axis, it's a little unusual," he continued. "Apparently now Putin and Kim Jong-un are noble, intelligent role models, and Canada's a bunch of giant assholes. You're redoing the post-war alliances, only this time we're with the Axis powers. I just want to say if there's one Hallmark to your presidency that we're finding most difficult it's that no matter what you do, it always comes with that extra layer of gleeful cruelty... and dickishness."
