so long farewell

257 times Jon Stewart told it like it is

Don’t leave us, Jon.

IT’S WITH A heavy heart that we accept the news that Jon Stewart is to leave The Daily Show.

The political satirist has announced he’s stepping down after 16 years behind the desk.

He’s told it like it is too many times to count, more than 257 times even.

Here are just a few of those takedowns…

That time he called out ageism and sexism aimed at Hillary Clinton






That time he pointed the finger at corporations that “have been raised American, but know in their hearts that they’re really Irish”

It’s like St Patrick’s Day for corporations.

All those times he called out Fox News

Like this time Fox News took him to task for “shedding light on Food Stamp abuse” and offered to “school him”  about the “waste, fraud and abuse in a lot of the programs”.

Stewart pointed out that Food Stamp fraud costs $3b annually…
