Jon Stewart on 'Late Show': America Will Prevail Against Trump

"It's me, the guy you made sure everyone knew was Jewish on Twitter", Stewart began, momentarily filling for Colbert and referencing an old Twitter feud with Trump. "If there's one hallmark to your presidency that I think we're finding most hard, it's that, no matter what you do, it always comes with an extra layer of gleeful cruelty and dickishness".

The former Daily Show host went on to harp on Trump's seemingly "hallmark" trait. "Anyone in the Republican Party dare speak against you, they also must be humiliated, even if they have a terminal disease".

"Everything's off its axis, it's a little unusual", he continued, citing the fact that apparently Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong-un are now "noble, intelligent role models", while Canada, the non-violent protest by National Football League players, the media, and even John McCain have been targets of the President's criticism. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who is battling brain cancer.

"You" can't just be against the media; they're "enemies of the people'". Since Donald Trump has no problem tearing apart immigrant families and ruining the lives of hundreds of children, I'm very much looking forward to the downfall of this man and every despicable member of his family and administration.

Stewart noted that Trump could have taken other steps to tighten enforcement at the borders "but it wouldn't have felt right without a Dickensian level of villainy".

Moore has been waging a long battle on Trump, and was one of only a handful of people who predicted his presidential election victory. Stewart offers a solid-gold house, a news outlet that praises him 24/7, destroyed land of his arch-rival (sorta).

Colbert asked Moore if he acted in a civil manner to the people he encountered at the hotel. Enter Colbert with the word on Kilauea. "Clearly, we're not going to be able to negotiate or shame you into decency, but there is one place where I draw the line". With that, he cued some clips of Trump's defenders calling him a strong leader, a fighter and a "compassionate human being". "What Lincoln said in his Cooper Union speech was to point out the one thing Southern slaveholders really wanted from the free states".

Despite Trump's "cruelty and fear and divisiveness", Stewart stressed Americans will still triumph over the inconsistencies of current politics. "If I see her going to my movie I'm not going to say, 'You can't see my movie.' But we're not talking about political differences - we're talking about children being kidnapped from their parents and put in jails".
