Jon Stewart Gleeful Over Donald Trump's 'Projectile Vomit of Dickishness'

Somehow, despite it all, Donald Trump continues to cling to his pretense at a serious presidential campaign. And so The Daily Show continues to cover his antics with outright glee.

Jon Stewart: Morning Joe's 'Rap Causes Racism' Theory Was Dumb as Hell 

We've heard lots of hot takes on what made the racist dopes of Sigma Alpha Epsilon's Oklahoma chapter such racist dopes, but none was hotter than Morning Joe's: it's all because of that damn rap music. Wow. Does anybody have a pair of shades, to shield me from blinding light and heat of this take? » 3/12/15 9:50am 3/12/15 9:50am

Daily Show: Florida Congressman Relentlessly Messes with Texas

Jon Stewart Gives a Warm Welcome to His New Advertisers: The Koch Bros

The Koch brothers—the duo of darth vaders whose shady corporation, Koch Industries, is so IRL nefarious their biography could be a plotline from a Nicholas Cage movie—have been using their endless coffers of money to gobble up ad time on The Daily Show.

The Daily Show Tackles The GOP's Inept Wooing of 'The Lady Vote'

The midterm elections are coming, and this time the Republican Party wants YOUR vote, ladies. Not by revamping their platform and selecting candidates that don't say horrifying, sexist shit—don't be silly! No, as the Daily Show's Kirsten Schaalexplained last night, the GOP is producing a bunch of ads putting… » 10/09/14 9:50am 10/09/14 9:50am

The Daily Show Will See You Through the Storm of Royal Baby Coverage

The Royal Baby's been born so does this mean we can finally take a break from the endless Royal Birth cable news coverage? Probably not!

Jon Stewart on Egypt's Daily Show Might Be the Answer to World Peace

Jon Stewart might be absent from the American version of The Daily Show, but that doesn't mean he's missing from the franchise entirely. Stewart recently found himself on the other side of the desk (and the other side of the globe) when he was a guest on Bernameg — Egypt's own version of The Daily Show, hosted by the… » 6/24/13 12:05pm 6/24/13 12:05pm
