    Trevor Noah's tenure as host of The Daily Show on Comedy Central is nearing five years, so they're reaching out for the expected positive publicity from the liberal media. Michael Ordona at the Los Angeles Times proclaimed that it's great the comedy isn't so central any more on Comedy Central. The Daily Show With Trevor Noah has gone from being jokes about the news to, more and more, the news with some jokes. If comedy is tragedy plus time, perhaps this is a natural evolution when we’re too close to the second part of that equation to produce a lot...

    “The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah asked Hillary Clinton how she killed Jeffrey Epstein during a Thursday interview with the former secretary of state and her daughter, Chelsea. The comedian’s question was a play on a conspiracy theory that the Clintons had some kind of involvement in the death of Epstein to cover up their connections to the convicted sex trafficker. “I have to ask you a question that has been plaguing me for a while: How did you kill Jeffrey Epstein?” Noah asked, met by laughter from his audience.

    Jon Stewart, the left-wing star of the low-rated "Daily Show," might not be richer than Romney today, but the pace he's currently on means that someday he may very well be.Of course that means nothing to Stewart as he continues to carry Obama's water and launch divisive class warfare attacks from the platform of a super PAC known as Comedy Central to attack Mitt Romney's wealth. Though Stewart distances himself from the “one-percenters” and bellows over their extravagance, his bank accounts bear all the marks of the “multi, multi, multi, multi millionaires” he mocks. The 49-year-old Stewart, born Jonathan Stuart...

    New York City's former top cop said Sunday that the Obama administration cut funding to fight terrorism in the city to retaliate against Sen. Chuck Schumer for opposing a nuclear deal with Iran. "There's a certain amount vindictiveness on the part of Washington aimed at Sen. Chuck Schumer," Ray Kelly, New York City's police commissioner under former Mayor Michael Bloomberg, said in an interview with John Catsimatidis on AM 970 in New York. "Apparently they remember very well that Sen. Schumer did not support their Iran deal," Kelly said, arguing the proposed cut "was aimed at getting a reaction from...

    It is now safe. Did you hear that, Saturday Night Live? It is now safe to satirize Jussie Smollett. After weeks of fearing to tread into this area of comedy due to not wanting to challenge the official line that Jussie Smollett was the victim of a hate crime perpetrated by MAGA hat types, despite a lot of evidence that this was actually a hoax, the comedy floodgates seemed to have finally opened this week. On Friday night the Daily Show presented an hilarious skit brutally mocking Smollett in the form of a Lifetime movie parody.

    Monday on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell addressed how President Donald Trump treats the press as “the enemy of the people.” Mitchell likened Trump to Joseph Stalin, saying what the president attacking fake news is “very dangerous.” “This is something that we first heard from Joseph Stalin. This is very dangerous. It undercuts democracy,” Mitchell said. “And for years and years, I’ve covered the State Department where we’ve tried to teach and help, advocate with new democracies how to train journalists and how we do journalism.”

    While President Donald Trump‘s election left much of the country in shock, Trevor Noah says the public doesn’t realize just how influential he and his voting base have become. In fact, Noah thinks we should be expecting a second Trump term. Speaking to CNN’s Brian Stelter in an interview that aired Sunday, the Daily Show host said voters have miscalculated the rise of far-right politics and its potential to grow. “I think people underestimate how laser-focused Trump and his supporters are,” he said, discussing the possibility of re-election. “I think people also underestimate how many people in America are willing...

    President Trump's absence for the second year in a row from the annual White House Correspondents' Dinner may end up being the least controversial thing about Saturday night's gathering of the White House press corps. Chatter online among journalists and some in the administration's orbit after the event was full of criticism for comedian Michelle Wolf, who was the evening's headliner; criticism and soul-searching about the annual event itself; and an effort by former White House press secretary Sean Spicer to pressure the leadership of the White House Correspondents' Association into answering for Wolf's vulgar, personal jabs leveled primarily at...

    The atmosphere is so bad around Megyn Kelly at “Today” that producers of the 7-to-9 a.m. slot, hosted by Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb, are openly sniping at her. Kelly, who takes over “Today” at 9 a.m., had “congratulated” Kotb, “Mean Girls”-style, when the latter landed Matt Lauer’s job. On Jan. 2, Kelly said to Kotb, live on air, “We talked recently about how, 10 years ago, your life was very different. You were going through a dark period.”

    The party’s drift in that direction began years ago, the Arizona senator said, explaining, “We could not be the party of fiscal conservatism when we were ballooning our debt. So we started to wage in the cultural wars, started arguing about flag burning. And we’ve gotten further and further down that road. Donald Trump latched on to that and put it into hyper-drive. Unfortunately, voters have gone along with him.”

    Former President Jimmy Carter said the Israeli-Palestinian conflict was among the factors that led to the deadly attacks last week in Paris. Carter made the assertion Monday night during an appearance on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” with Jon Stewart. “Well, one of the origins for it is the Palestinian problem. And this aggravates people who are affiliated in any way with the Arab people who live in the West Bank and Gaza, what they are doing now — what’s being done to them. So I think that’s part of it,” Carter told Stewart. He called the training in the...

    When Jon Stewart left The Daily Show last year he left a major void in the late night television landscape. Not only was Stewart considered one of the most sharp political satirists on television, but he also hates Donald Trump. The two have a long-standing rivalry.... “Look I don’t even know if Donald Trump is eligible to be President — that’s not a birther thing,” Stewart said. “I’m not a constitutional scholar so I can’t necessarily say, but are you eligible to run if you are a man-baby or a baby man?”
