    He is a realist, not right, not left, not dem, not repub, not con, not lib, just being real and talking about what people really want, a good life without hurting everyone else. Trevor noah is doing the same.

    McConnell sprinted in to the senate to vote for the Iraq war, the 2 trillion dollar tax theft & for every corrupt bill for the rich. He will get to it when he gets to it. But most of those first responders voted for these selfish racist republican. Wake up America, these corrupt politician take your tax dollars & lives just to support the military contractors & themselves, the money never gets to the soldier or now first responders.

  • Jason Maddox

    John Stewart is a fuckin tool, I respect what he did for the 9/11 first responders but that’s it, he lives a New York elite life insulated from reality, he’s just mad because he knows he’s wrong on most of these issues


    Give me a break. If he was worth a $HIT, he would still be on the air.

    Jon Stewart is in his own breed. He's funny, charismatic, completely emotional, an excellent orator, and he speaks to the crowd that has been forgotten, the millenials.

    Jon Stewart does what George Carlin would do. That is making you think through humor. It’s not a case of using another persons routine and whatnot. The fact of the matter is George Carlin once said, “... selfish and ignorant citizens vote for selfish and ignorant politicians.” That quote stood true. When I see the clip and Congress paid no attention to him calling on them.
    You know it’s like they’d rather play golf or something. Because selfish and ignorant people voted for those no shows. Falling for catchy campaign slogans. Much respect to Jon for standing up for what he believes in. We had the worse terror attack ever. Those people who rushed in and did their job need help. You obviously can’t say the same about congress.

    Yes, Jon is awesome, integrity, humanity and intelligence in one person. It's up to us now to make something out of his example. Otherwise whats the point of honoring him if we don't act to defend democracy and decency. Let's get active. 2020 is around the corner.

    This highlights very clearly that Dem's in congress do not care about US citizens at all. It is so sad because they say we fight for illegals and will give them anything but you Americans can die any you sad states like CA re-elect them into office. I will repeat for those blind deaf SJW people Democrats in Congress and Senate do not care about you at all they are scum and corrupt. I hear one say the other day congress people are of high moral people and are honorable honest people ( I nearly sh*t my self laughing).

    I've been a huge fan of him and Stephen Colbert since before I even knew what politics was and they inspire me to advocate for what is right, to be a politician is to be a civil servant and find ways to improve the livelihood of fellow citizens but sadly a lot of our leaders aren't in it for the people, they're just in it for the paycheck

    At point 5, I must protest Watchmojo and the like covering Jons sensible contrarian position not as an informed, well researched, detailed, personable and witty long form review of guests but rather you guys tar and feather the effort by a Gotcha style literalist interpretation of good humoured exchanges. PS Stewart always regretted going too hard on Jim Cramer.

    Is Jon the one who vetted and chose Trevor Noah? I've always wondered that because that was perfection. After I heard Jon was leaving the show I figured I would never watch it again but Noah is even better than Jon was on the show. Noah is truly a brilliant man, I'm blown away by his intelligence. Jon will always be a legend and he gave us Trevor Noah.
