Jon Stewart went on CBS This Morning to discuss Donald Trump: “He wants to make America great again, but nobody said to him, ‘Well, what is it that makes America great?” Stewart also talks about not labeling all Trump voters as racist because he is a good and reasonable human being.
Speaking of reasonable behavior, Megyn Kelly’s book came out on Tuesday and has already been trolled by Trump supporters.
Because here’s a fun story in which a Fox executive had to tell Trump’s personal attorney to stop retweeting death threats about Kelly: “And what Bill Shine said to Michael Cohen was, ‘Let me put it to you in terms you can understand: If Megyn Kelly gets killed it is not going help your candidate.’” This is terrifying.
Almost as terrifying as this former Navy SEAL suggesting that Trump’s plan for a Muslim registry will be found constitutional because of our previous history with interment camps on Megyn Kelly’s show last night.
Billy on the Street had the best statement on Trump’s nationalism without ever once mentioning his name with this game, “Immigrant or Real American.” The first two minutes are hilarious, but if you want to skip straight to the game, begin the video at 1:52.
Sesame Street, upping their troll game.
Cohen had previously served as a pageant host, until Trump decided to host the Miss Universe contest in Russia. In response, the Watch What Happens Live! host penned a letter to Trump expressing his feelings on the matter. “I said, ‘I’m not comfortable because all these laws have passed in Russia,’” Cohen said during an EW SiriusXM Town Hall interview that’s also the latest installment of The Jess Cagle Interview. “’I feel not truthful standing up there talking about what a great place Russia is, as a gay man, and would you consider moving it?’”
But when news broke that the Bravo producer had refused to go to Russia for the gig, Trump responded — just not to Cohen’s request. “[He] called Page Six and told them that I had never been offered the job,” recalls Cohen.
Cool, cool, cool. So cool. Everything is totally cool and not completely on fire.
BYE, DUCK DYNASTY, BYE. TAKE YOUR NASTY RACIST SEXIST UNCLE PHIL AND GET STUFFED.
Yeah, No Tomorrow turns out to have been an apt name for that series. It and Frequency will only receive 13 episodes this season which strongly suggests they will be cancelled.

Channel Zero returns sometime next year. The first season,”Candle Cove,” had its finale last night, and it was the most nightmarish series I think I have ever seen, in the sense that it literally felt like being in a waking nightmare. It’s not a show for everyone, but what they did, they did well.
In other renewals:
- Epix renewed Graves and Berlin Station.
- E! just renewed Total Bellas, WAGS and WAGS Miami, God bless America.
