For Jon Stewart, this certainly isnt the high note he wanted to go out on.
The guy who prides himself on speaking truth to power, as the anti-establishment, take-to-both-sides-hero for millennials everywhere reduced to a stenographer for a sitting president so thin-skinned about any and all criticism that he needs to dictate his own comedy. As originally reported in Politico by Darren Samuelson, the outgoing Daily Show host met with President Barack Obama twice in the past four years but failed to let anyone know about it. It was only then that Stewart who loves to play the Im just a comic. Dont take me seriously! card anytime he gets called out on something decided to go the Stephanopolus route in trying to explain away his two meetings with the president.
Well, I mean, I dont know if they were secret, the 52-year-old said last night while pointing out his name (which one?) was clearly on the visitor logs. It all sounds so much like Stephanopoulos explaining that his donations to the Clinton Foundation that were also there for all the public to see
buried on his tax forms. All I know is this: If I met with the president and hosted a program which primarily focuses on politics, pretty sure Id let my audience know at the very least that what had happened. Unless, of course, I have to carry out my PR orders in a way no White House Press Secretary or Sunday talk show appearance ever could.

In the end, Jon Stewart proves to be nothing more than a modern day Monica Lewinsky, only with less dignity.
Let’ss just say Jon admits to (at least) two visits to the White House. He may have been summoned there as many times as Al Sharpton, another Spin Doctor.
Oh look -- Jon Stewart is just another lying liberal partisan media shill. Thanks Beave Meister.
Good one! HEY, MONICA STEWART, OBAMA OWNS YOU!
The way I see it is hypocrisy is something everyone say they hate but something they all do. It takes a big brain to self-justify all of your intellectual contradictions, but humanity’s heads are up to the task!
If the people are so anti-hypocrites like they say they are, very few if any democrats would get elected, and only a few Republicans would, too!
That is pure gold!
Jon Stewart left the White Hut with new
material and a sore butthole. Now, he is
soon to ride his copy boy off into the sunset.
Obama and Jonjon were ridin’ dirty.
