Jon Stewart's Poignant Parting Words For 'Nightly Show's' Larry Wilmore

The Huffington Post | Ed Mazza | August 19, 2016 | Comedy
When the final “Nightly Show” aired on Thursday, Jon Stewart showed up to bid farewell to host Larry Wilmore. “Your last show?” Stewart said. “Oh my God! What did you, piss off Peter Thiel?” Stewart was referring to the Silicon Valley billionaire who bankrolled Hulk Hogan’s $135 million privacy lawsuit that caused Gawker.com to shut down. The ex-“Daily Show” host then gave some sage advice to his former correspondent: “Do not confuse cancellation with failure.” “What you, my friend, were tasked to do, you have done and done beautifully,” Stewart said. “You gave voice to underserved voices in the media arena and you did it ― it was a show that was raw and poignant and funny and smart and all those things.” After paying tribute to Wilmore, Stewart tapped his chest and said, “You did it, my...” but Wilmore tried to stop him from finishing that sentence.  “...my mishpocheh,” Stewart concluded, using a Yiddish term for family and not the word Wilmore was fearing.  The joke was a reference to Wilmore dropping the n-word on President Barack Obama at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner last spring. See the full conversation in the clip...

The Huffington Post | David Moye | August 19, 2016 | Entertainment
Trevor Noah believes the fight between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump is similar to “Batman v Superman” in at least one way. Both the campaign and the movie have “left America very disappointed,” he said on Thursday night’s “The Daily Show.” Noah, a native of South Africa, is still getting the hang of the American political system, and admits the two-party system has him flummoxed. “When it comes to everything except presidential candidates, Americans have the most choices,” he said, adding that he can walk into any supermarket in America and choose from 400 different kinds of yogurt. “Yes, when it comes to selecting America’s next leader for the next four years, you’re stuck with two choices: Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump,” he said. “Or to put in yogurt terms: vanilla and Sriracha baboon anus.” “The Daily Show” staffers Hasan Minhaj, Desi Lydic and Adam Lowitt joined Noah to explain the possible other choices facing voters: Libertarian Gary Johnson, Green Party nominee Dr. Jill Stein and independent Evan McMullin. Each correspondent made their case, but Lydic made have made the best case when she described Stein’s appeal. “If Hillary and Bernie had sex and someone watched it, it would be Dr. Jill Stein,” she...

J.K. Rowling Tweets Hilarious Response To Confusing Olympic Sport

The Huffington Post | Landess Kearns | August 18, 2016 | Good News

Hilary Hanson | August 18, 2016 | Weird News
