Jon Stewart made another triumphant return to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and had more things to say about Donald Trump – because when it comes to wreaking havoc on the world, the president is never in short supply.
Stewart took over the reigns on the Late Show to personally deliver Trump a direct message. "Hello, Donald. It's me, the guy you made sure everyone knew was Jewish on Twitter," he began, referring to 45's previous tweet that the comedian rejected his Jewish heritage by dropping his surname: Leibowitz.
I promise you that I'm much smarter than Jonathan Leibowitz - I mean Jon Stewart @TheDailyShow. Who, by the way, is totally overrated.— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump)1366816141.0
I know you're upset about all the criticism you've been taking in the 'fake news' and the 'fake late-night shows.' It's just that we're still having a little trouble adjusting to your presidency as it goes into its 500th year.
We will prevail because we are NOT yielding. Thank you Jon Stewart. 6/28/18 On the Late Show with Stephen Colbert ,… https://t.co/hNyg7vCt68— Liz Gilbert (@Liz Gilbert)1530248316.0
He described the current state of the world and how "everything's off its axis. It's a little unusual."
Apparently, Putin and Kim Jong Un are noble, intelligent role models, and Canada's a bunch of giant assholes. Like that's hard to get used to. Your'e re-doing the post-war alliances, only this time, we're with the axis powers.
If there's one hallmark to your presidency that I think we're finding most difficult, it's that, no matter what you do, it always comes with an extra layer of gleeful cruelty and dickishness.
The studio audience cheered their approval, but Stewart was only just beginning.

He mentioned how anyone opposing the president, regardless of partisanship, are not only slammed for their opinions but also ridiculed for speaking up.
It's not just that you don't want people taking a knee, it's that they're sons of bitches if they do. It's not just denying women who accuse you of sexual assault, it's saying they were too ugly anyway. You can't just be against the media, they're 'enemies of the people.'
The monologue reached the topic of immigration, to which Stewart commented: "Boy, you fucked that up."
You could have absolutely made a more stringent border policy that would have made your point about enforcement. But I guess it wouldn't have felt right without a Dickensian level of villainy. You casually separated people seeking asylum from their children, from babies.
It made me realize something. You may be orange. You may like hamburgers. You may be a clown. But you are no Ronald McDonald.
We've had quite a week. But there's no doubt Stewart will return to late night again in the future to dish on more blunders to come from the White House.

After tearing into Trump, Stewart concluded his rousing monologue by encouraging audiences to "prevail" by not giving in to Trump's destructive rhetoric.
What Donald Trump wants is for us to stop calling his cruelty, and fear and divisiveness wrong. But to join him in calling it right. This we will not do. By not yielding we will prevail.
