1. I was hoping he'd blow up 2020.

4. He basically has all season, but especially the last 3 weeks!

A lot of people expected him to take over as host after Jon Stewart left The Daily Show, but I remember reading that John did not enjoy covering Trump - which would be pretty much all he'd be doing if he was on daily covering the latest news. On his weekly show, he was able to cover numerous overlooked topics in depth, but over the past few weeks the transgressions of the Trump administration during the election season have been impossible to ignore - and I think he's done a stellar job, no big surprise.

9. Thanks so much!

How did I miss this?? As usual, I watched the show and posted the video as soon as it was available, and I knew this was the Season Finale (and not coming back till February?!), but I didn't realize until now that they'd uploaded the actual conclusion separately - and not until today. So thanks and I should probably add it to the OP...

10. LOL! Sorry I was so dense!

I didn't realize that the video I posted was incomplete - and that there was a second installment which wasn't available until today. DUer Dennis Donovan added it downthread, so I added it to the OP - and, yes, he actually did blow it up just as he did 2016...

6. This guy makes himself up like a clown, has no idea what he's doing and constantly lies

And has encouraged what's the only major power in the world to ignore a global pandemic which has allowed more than 200,000 of its citizens to die. So my answer would be "no."

7. Every time I see Jon Voight pulling this shit I console myself by envisioning him

being eaten by a giant anaconda.
