RE: Jon Ste­wart slams Trump’s first 11 days (Feb. 2)

Jon Ste­wart is a co­me­dian, but he is far more than that. His rou­tine re­gard­ing the Trump pres­i­dency was meant to en­ter­tain, but also to in­form. How­ever, ei­ther by in­ten­tion or space lim­i­ta­tion, the most im­por­tant part of the rou­tine was left out of Emily Yahr’s ar­ti­cle, the fin­ish­ing state­ment (also look­ing di­rectly into the cam­era):

“We have never faced this be­fore. Pur­pose­ful, vin­dic­tive chaos. But per­haps therein lies the sav­ing grace of I, Don­ald J. Trump’s pres­i­dency — no ac­tion will be ad­e­quate. All ac­tion will be nec­es­sary. And if we do not al­low Don­ald J. Trump to ex­haust our fight, and some­how come through this pres­i­dency calamity-less and con­sti­tu­tion­ally in­tact, then I, Don­ald J. Trump, will have demon­strated the great­ness of Amer­ica — just not how I thought I was gonna.” Sandra Harper, Hamil­ton
