“Trump lies more in one press conference than CNN does in a year, and this is coming from a guy who hates CNN.”
Jon Stewart has once again returned to his pal Stephen Colbert’s late-night show in order to talk Trump and the media.
On Monday’s episode of The Late Show, Stewart popped up yet again from behind Colbert’s desk, where he claims he has built a tunnel “straight from my farm.”
“I’ve spent the whole day yelling about trump to the animals!” he told Colbert, who had previously taken on Trump’s “hostile relationship with the media,” which “hit a new low,” he thought, when Press Secretary Sean Spicer banned reporters from several outlets from attending Friday’s press briefing.
“I can’t believe the guy’s got the balls to get away with that,” said Stewart. “Trump lies more in one press conference than CNN does in a year, and this is coming from a guy who hates CNN.”
Stewart called Trump out on a few of his claims, including getting the “best electoral college win since Reagan,” adding that he knows Trump is lying, “because he says ‘believe me.’ Nobody says ‘believe me,’ unless they are lying.”
“It is time to get your groove back, media,” said Stewart, talking to the camera “that goes straight to the media.”
“Hey, media. So I heard Donald Trump broke up with you. It stings a little, doesn’t it? You finally thought you met your match: a blabbermouth who’s as thin-skinned and narcissistic as you are. Well good riddance, I say! Kick him to the curb.”
“It didn’t work out, did it? Because 70-year-old men don’t get less cranky or racist as time goes by,” Stewart joked. “Unless they are visited at night by three spirits.”
The last time Stewart appeared on The Late Show, he came in costume in a wig and over-long red tie, mimicking Trump and joking about his wardrobe.
“I thought this is how men dress now,” Stewart explained to Colbert. “The president sets men’s fashion. I saw the inauguration — super long tie, dead animal on head. Boom.”
He also addressed Trump’s executive orders, then only 11 days into his presidency, which, Stewart joked, “is supposed to age the president, not the public.”
“No one action will be adequate,” was Stewart’s message to the crowd. “All actions will be necessary, and if we do not allow Donald Trump to exhaust our fight and somehow come through this presidency calamity-less and constitutionally partially intact, then I, Donald J. Trump, will have demonstrated the greatness of America, just not the way I thought I was gonna.”
He also joined Colbert on Election Eve last year for a musical number and plea to voters.
