Jon Stewart Returns To Savage Trump, Sean Hannity: ‘This Country Isn’t Yours!’ (VIDEO)

Jon Stewart made a triumphant return to late night Thursday to eviscerate the newly-christened GOP nominee and his Fox News hype man, Sean Hannity.

Stewart took Stephen Colbert’s seat on “The Late Show” to repeatedly slam “angry groundhog” Donald Trump, who he said embodies the same values that “Lumpy” Hannity has spent years decrying from President Obama.

“You just want that person to give you your country back. Because you feel that you’re this country’s rightful owners,” Stewart said. “There’s only one problem with that. This country isn’t yours. You don’t own it. It never was.”

He continued for a big finish: “There is no real America. You don’t own it. You don’t own patriotism. You don’t own Christianity. You sure as hell don’t own respect for the bravery and sacrifice of military, police, and firefighters. Trust me, I saw a lot of people on the convention floor in Cleveland with their blue lives matter rhetoric who either remained silent or actively fought against the 9/11 first responders bill reauthorization. I see you and your bullshit.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
