Jon Stewart Returns To Stephen Colbert's Late Show To Reveal Donald Trump's Next 3 Ridiculous Executive Orders!
In his first late night stint since the inauguration, the former Daily Show host came out dressed as the fashionable POTUS — donning a six-foot long red tie and an actual dead animal clinging to his head.
After some back-to-school banter between the longtime collaborators, Stewart read off three executive orders he claimed Trump was preparing to sign: like tricking Mexico into buying off China's Great Wall and changing the new official U.S. language to "bullshit."
Stewart got a bit more serious with his third faux-executive order, begging to citizens to band together to keep the orange POTUS from turning into a Star Wars villain. We think it's a little too late for that…

Jon Stewart On The ONE Question No One Asked Donald Trump — See The Trusted Fake Newsman's Thoughts On The Election HERE!
No one ever said creating an America for everyone was easy.
But according to Jon Stewart, the idea of a country run by people of different cultures, backgrounds, and histories is "not natural."
The former Daily Show host trimmed his beard to sit down with Charlie Rose and give his rational take on the results of the election.
He said on Thursday's CBS This Morning:
"I don't believe we are a fundamentally different country today than we were two weeks ago. The same country that elected Donald Trump elected Barack Obama. This election, to me is just another extension of the long argument that we've had from our founding, which is: What are we?"
While Trump's campaign was full of questions — Is he a sexual criminal? Is he fit to lead a country? Are his hands really that small? — Stewart says there's one question the President-elect was NEVER asked. He mused:
'Twas the night before the election, and all through the nation… late night hosts aired sketches hoping for a Hillary Clinton celebration!
Now that it's finally election day, we're at the home stretch of this exhausting presidential race — which had so many twists and turns that it sort of feels like an old school fairy tale. (You know, one that might end in an post-apocalyptic land of nightmares ruled by orange dictator Donald Trump.)
Of course, Stephen Colbert and Trevor Noah also host made sure to cash in on the political chaos one last time as well with thoughtful, compelling closing remarks. (Meanwhile, Jimmy Fallon played drunk Twister or something…)

John Oliver Apologizes To America For Telling Donald Trump To Run For President — Watch His Unfortunate Choice Of Words From Way Back In 2013!
The Last Week Tonight host revealed on Sunday's show his glaring error from a 2013 episode of The Daily Show — he actually ASKED Drumpf to run!
In an adorable but unfortunately naive segment, Oliver — who at the time was filling in for Jon Stewart — talked about wanting The Donald to run so badly, he'd even donate to his campaign!
See the classic clip AND John's apology (below)!
For a network focused on comedy, they sure are welcoming the drama!
As you may have heard, the world of late night TV suffered a sudden loss on Monday when Comedy Central decided to cancel The Nightly Show after just two seasons on the air.
While the news wasn't completely shocking since the Larry Wilmore vehicle is easily the weakest performer in the news satire genre, we were surprised the channel didn't try to save the show somehow before completely giving it the axe.
But we're not alone… Larry himself was just as surprised that the Daily Show spin-off didn't survive to see a Season 3 — and he's blaming the OG series for his own cancellation!
While speaking to Vulture on Tuesday, the comedian admitted that while his ratings weren't necessarily great by any means, that's actually all Trevor Noah's fault, saying:
