Jon Stewart Finishes Amazing Run, Hillary Clinton Spins, and Stephen A. Smith Defends

Thank you Jon.

Icon of political satire Jon Stewart broadcasts his final episode. From the late 1990s to today, he showed us how funny real government can be and how effective political humor can be, instead of hate. That was very nice of him.

Did you think the killing of a Lion was a big deal? We were surprised. None of us are hunters, but we did find it odd that the dentist involved was so vilified for his mistake. Soon after the Cecil story broke, dozens of pictures of Donald Trump’s son emerged on the Internet. Was this a planned attack?

We also discussed the clear message Hillary Clinton sent to voters about planned parenthood. She supports them — no surprise — but the way she turned the topic to healthcare was masterful.

Since we’re from Connecticut, we are all huge fans of ESPN. Sports talk show host Stephen A. Smith is a gem. His cranky, punch-you-in-the-mouth commentary is sports gospel. He turned his attention to politics last week. He came to the defense of presidential candidate Martin O’Malley for saying “all lives matter” instead of toting the tome “black lives matter.” SAS HS
