2. You're right, he stole the show!

He always does. And there were some pretty high profile guests tonight, Michael Moore and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (who he just announced last night). Listening to Jon, I couldn't help wondering if he regretted giving up his show and his platform when he did - he still has a lot to say, especially now!

5. The "dickishness & abject cruelty" comments were spot on

Stewart's gift is explaining what is going on so the rest of us can easily understand it, all the while laughing.

I miss him.

6. I actually had the privilege of seeing him in person in 2008

I was in the studio audience. He not only had a great show, but he's also just a really nice guy. He talked and joked with the audience there before the show and one woman asked him about the notes he used - and he remembered that and made a point of giving them to her after the show!

8. I miss him, too - and I can't help thinking he must miss his platform right now.

But fortunately he's BFF with Stephen Colbert, so he has made regular appearances - and has to be his most popular guest! I had to laugh when they took turns under the desk! It's obvious they still have great fun together - and share the same message.

4. Jon Stewart cheered me

which is increasingly hard to do. "On this we shall not yield" amen, brother!
Thanks for posting. I even stayed up to watch but atmospheric conditions had other plans.

7. Me, too! He obviously still has a national platform and he cheered me up too

These days, when things just seem to be getting worse by the day, I consider Stephen Colbert - and guests like Jon Stewart and Michael Moore - must see TV to keep me from panicking! He gave a brilliant speech!

11. You're more than welcome!

These help keep me from going off the deep end, too! And it's the entire Colbert monologue - and it was cool that Jon Stewart joined him last night. I usually don't post the guests unless they're political ones - since V&M is a political forum - but we lucked out last night with both Michael Moore and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez!

13. I agree that his was a great speech and I'm grateful that he has Colbert's show as a platform

So far, I've seen clips of it several times on the news, including on Brian Williams' 11th Hour last night. It needs to be played and replayed everywhere!

Right now it's Nicolle Wallace and she just showed Jon Stewart too - and that's what they're discussing!

17. I haven't caught the "national news," but I'm hoping they're carrying this, as well

I've often seen clips from the late night shows on the MSNBC broadcasts, whatever show that was on earlier had a clip of Seth Meyers' monologue and this is at least the third time I've seen at least part of Jon Stewart's epic speech!

He does have a more casual look now, LOL, but that's just fine - he often emerges from under Colbert's desk, these days!

19. Well, you know that he and Colbert are the best of friends

And I'm guessing that Jon has an open invitation to appear whenever he wants to - and it's not unusual to see him pop up, often from under the desk, LOL. The last time I saw him there was when he had the winner of some Late Show contest under his desk for the duration of the show - and the surprise was that Jon Stewart was there, too!

And Nicolle Wallace was followed by a repeat of Hardball. I didn't catch either show yesterday, but Tweety had a clip from Jon Stewart's speech, too!

21. I don't remember the exact words they aired, but it was near the end when he really got going

I don't know if they aired the entire speech for the "panels" they had on both shows, but it seems likely since what Jon had to say was the topic of their panel discussions!

23. He's still an important voice that people obviously listen to, so he deserves a national platform.

Did I ever tell you that I once saw Jon Stewart in person? Back in 2008, I was in the studio audience of The Daily Show! It was pretty cool be in the actual studio, it wasn't a big place and it was very high tech, I remember clocks with the times from different world cities on the walls. And he was very friendly, talked and joked with the audience before the show. And of course he had his notes - and one lady asked about them. And he remembered, made it a point to give them to her after the show.

25. I saw David Letterman in person earlier that same year, too, another favorite of mine

And he was equally friendly, made it a point to engage with the audience even after 30+ years! But the main difference I noticed was with Letterman, we just waited in line and then went in. But with Jon Stewart's Daily Show, there were metal detectors, you had to take off your belt(!) in front of security and they needed to check out my purse - but the guy who checked me in was pretty friendly - guess I didn't look dangerous - and he gave up on my purse!

27. I get a lot of crap about my purse, I never get around to cleaning it out.

I need to try to remember to leave it in the car!

And the last show that was on MSNBC before they went to those awful Dateline murder stories that they show on weekends was The Beat with Ari Melber - and they showed Jon Stewart's speech, too! They showed quite a bit of it, the beginning with Stephen Colbert whispering in his ear - and then the end when he really got going! His speech is really making the news!

29. I wouldn't be surprised to see more of it shown throughout next week

Especially since there won't be anything new. All the late night shows are in repeats because of the holiday.
