Jon Stewart Devoured Hillary Clinton And The Media Ignored It
For over a decade, Jon Stewart helped America make sense of its dysfunctional political system as the host of “The Daily Show.”
He had an uncanny ability to balance side-splitting humor with insightful, and often inspiring, monologues on the state of this country.
Given the eccentric, and in many ways unsettling, nature of the current presidential race, a lot of people are really missing having Stewart as the host of the show, as Trevor Noah took over in September 2015.
Noah is doing a good job, and other comedians like John Oliver, Larry Wilmore and Samantha Bee are offering their own blend of politics, news and humor on other programs. But things just aren't quite the same without Stewart.
This is why a lot of people were pretty excited when he spoke with David Axelrod at the University of Chicago Institute of Politics on Monday, offering some of his views on the election.
Multiple outlets reported on the fact Stewart called Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee, a “man-baby.”
While this is hilarious, and pretty accurate when it comes down to it, almost no one covered what he also said about Hillary Clinton, the Democratic frontrunner.
Stewart really laid into the former secretary of state, essentially stating he has no idea what she really believes.
What he said is definitely worth listening to.
Stewart may not have been as harsh on Clinton as he was with Trump, but his remarks reflect how a lot of people feel about her: She's very intelligent and experienced, but almost everything she does feels calculated and inauthentic.
Even still, she remains the favorite for the Democratic nomination for president.
