    President Barack Obama doesn’t expect he’ll “suddenly just vanish” once Donald Trump takes office on Jan. 20. He also doesn’t expect to keep quiet if his successor’s administration impedes on the “core values” of the United States. Remarking on Trump’s proposed ban on Muslims, Obama on Monday’s The Daily Show told Trevor Noah that he will “have to say something” if Trump follows through on his campaign promise, or insists on a registry of all Muslims currently living the United States. “If I thought a Muslim registry was being set up that violates the Constitution, violates who we are, and...

    A close and — to pundits, journalists, and Democrats — unexpected victory like Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s is always overdetermined, and no one particular thing pushed Trump over the edge on Tuesday night. His chosen party’s lately increasing openness to explicit white nationalism, the still-recent global-scale failure of the liberal economic consensus, the apparently deep-seated misogyny and racism of the American electorate, Hillary Clinton’s multiple shortcomings as a candidate, or even the last-minute intervention of FBI director James Comey might each have been, on its own, sufficient to hand the election to a man who is, by any reckoning,...

    Larry Wilmore bid farewell to The Nightly Show on Thursday by thanking Comedy Central, former Daily Show host Jon Stewart (who appeared as a guest during the last episode), and the show’s staff and fans. […] In an interview with EW before the final episode, Wilmore said his immediate post-show plans included taking a break from politics “for a while,” and a wish to perhaps one day moderate a debate. But speaking as he signed off one last time from The Nightly Show, Wilmore offered just four words about what his future holds: “I’m not done yet.” …

    Breitbart News’ Joel Pollak sent The Daily Show running for cover, armed only with his cell phone camera, outside a “Gays for Trump” party hosted by Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos near the Republican National Convention early Wednesday. A crew from The Daily Show — which plunged in the ratings after Trevor Noah took over as host— set up outside the event and approached people as they left the party, asking them for interviews. At 12:30 a.m., Pollak was leaving the party when The Daily Show approached. “I was on the phone anyway,” Pollak recalled, “so I ignored them, but...

    Drive around outside at around daybreak and it is not an unusual sight to see men leaning against the outside walls of convenience stores chugging from cans wrapped in brown bags. Most often the brew of choice among such men is Colt 45 malt liquor. However, don't be too surprised if among such early morning Colt 45 fans, you spot Jake Tapper, host of CNN's The Lead, taking a chug from this brew and, perhaps, handing it off to his colleague, Wolf Blitzer. Such a speculation is not totally off the convenience store wall since Tapper seems to have embraced...

    Dalia Mogahed, formerly Barack Obama’s adviser on Muslim affairs, appeared on Trevor Noah’s sinking-like-a-stone Daily Show last week, to explain to a worshipful Noah and an adoring audience that the hijab represented nothing more or less than the “privatization of women’s sexuality” – and who on earth but the most benighted lout could possibly be against that? The burning outrage of Mogahed’s words was probably missed by most Daily Show viewers. It should not be missed by FrontPage readers.

    Just two weeks after the broadcast networks mourned “cultural icon” Jon Stewart leaving The Daily Show, Friday’s NBC Today and CBS This Morning touted an online petition on the liberal Change.org website urging the Commission on Presidential Debates to select the left-wing comedian as a 2016 debate moderator. On Today, co-host Matt Lauer wondered: “Could the presidential race be in Jon Stewart's future?” Fill-in weatherperson Dylan Dryer followed: “Well, that’s the hope of a lot of people....A Change.org petition requesting Stewart moderate one of the 2016 presidential debates has been signed almost 140,000 times and that number is growing by...

    A plurality of college students think billionaire businessman Donald Trump won the first Republican presidential debate, according to a poll released Monday. Twenty-six percent of college or college-bound students said Trump won the debate, according to a survey from Chegg, an online textbook rental and tutoring company. Sixteen percent said former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush won, 14 percent thought Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) won and 10 percent went for Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.). Ten percent of college students said nobody won.

    Many liberals, but not conservatives, believe there is an important asymmetry in American politics. These liberals believe that people on opposite sides of the ideological spectrum are fundamentally different. Specifically, they believe that liberals are much more open to change than conservatives, more tolerant of differences, more motivated by the public good and, maybe most of all, smarter and better informed. The evidence for these beliefs is not good. Liberals turn out to be just as prone to their own forms of intolerance, ignorance and bias. But the beliefs are comforting to many. They give their bearers a sense of...

    Today is the 70th anniversary of President Truman’s decision to bomb Hiroshima. Today is also Jon Stewart’s final appearance as host of The Daily Show. Given the confluence of these two events, I somehow neglected to mention perhaps the daftest thing Stewart ever did during his 16 years host of The Daily Show in my rather brutal assessment of his intelligence and his comedic talents. Remember in 2009 when Stewart told Cliff May, president of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, that President Truman was a war criminal because he dropped the bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki?

    Telecomix is a hacktivist group of loosely connected individuals who are primarily known for bringing clean lines of communication to war torn areas where information is suppressed. In their own parlance, the group's guiding principle is "datalove," meaning they want to spread information far and wide while actively preventing it from being needlessly repressed. To give you a couple of examples, during the 2012 conflict in Gaza, Telecomix provided dial-up internet lines to help people get their stories out to the rest of the world during an internet blackout. They also figured out how to provide a mass message to...

    As Jon Stewart wraps up his final week as host of the Daily Show, he used his Monday night show to attack a recent Koch brothers event that featured numerous Republican presidential candidates in attendance. Stewart opened up his broadcast by making a crude sexual joke at the expense of the GOPers in attendance who “worked the talking points and cradled the special interests in the hopes of one of them after a period of 45 minutes to an hour would induce the money shot. And really, they didn't care which Koch went off.” Later in the segment, the Daily...

    For Jon Stewart, this certainly isn’t 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 “I’m...

    resident Obama swung by The Daily Show earlier this week and was challenged by outgoing host Jon Stewart over government incompetence on his watch. Pressed on prominent instances of malfeasance and ineptitude that have plagued the federal bureaucracy during his administration -- from the VA wait list scandal, to the catastrophic OPM hack, to the IRS targeting affair -- Obama breezily dismissed the latter example as a non-scandal, chalking it up to Congress writing "crummy" laws that were merely implemented "poorly and stupidly."  The Washington Times reports: President Obama defended the IRS Tuesday in an interview with “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart, saying the tea party-targeting scandal...
