Jon Stewart's message for the media: Stop whining about Trump

Trump spoke about the mess he had inherited, which led Colbert to joke: "I don't know what we inherited, but you inherited like $100m". "It is time for you to get your groove back, media".

When Colbert asked Stewart what he thought about White House press secretary Sean Spicer excluding outlets like CNN, The New York Times, and Politico from an informal press briefing on Friday, Stewart was entirely unsympathetic.

That's what makes Stewart's brief appearance on Monday night's The Late Show with Stephen Colbert so important.

"Put on a few pundits.

Because 70-year-old men don't get less cranky or racist as time goes by", Stewart joked. Obsessing 24 hours a day, seven days a week about this one guy. "It's just like the Statue of Liberty says: Give us your exhausted, your poor, but not so poor that they can't afford a two-bedroom apartment and like, a Mitsubishi", Colbert said.

It marked the first combat death in Trump's presidency. "This was a mission that started before I got here", Trump said . Trump quoted Defense Secretary James Mattis' positive assessment of the raid during his speech Tuesday.

For 16 years Jon Stewart was the king of political satire, especially during the Bush era - when he constantly ridiculed the administration and Republican leadership. "And the whole time you're chasing after Donny, the rest of us are thinking, 'Can't you see he's an asshole?'".

Unfortunately for Stewart, he chose to retire just before Donald Trump took office - and now he's missing out on quite a bit of content. He can just call us!

"This breakup with Donald Trump has given you, the media, an awesome opportunity for self-reflection and improvement", he said. "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". "Instead of worrying about whether Trump is un-American, or if he thinks you're the enemy, or if he's being mean to you, or if he's going to let you go back into the briefings, do something for yourself". Self-improvement! Take up a hobby.

On The Late Show, Stephen Colbert went live to discuss the address, noting that some attendees had worn special clothing just for the occasion.
