(Newser) – After watching Lawrence O'Donnell angrily interview an empty chair Monday night after George Zimmerman's lawyer bolted from the interview, Jon Stewart could barely contain his glee. "He's grilling the chair! No, the chair doesn't have medical records to show you, it's a chair!" Stewart said last night. "You know, I live in New York City, I see a lot of people yelling at chairs. None of them have TV shows!"

He found that after about 10 minutes of viewing, he "started feeling badly … for the chair." What to do? Why, bring on the chair's lawyer, Fan, for a counter-interview. A great idea, except, Stewart discovered, "even I can't sustain this bit."

So then maybe the lawyer should have stayed and defended his position then? If you decide to get up and leave then you leave the mic open to just the one person. Not much of a lawyer if you can't even defend your position against one other person.

The "interview with the chair" was the same as the "interview with the friend" was last night. No truthful, honest information was forthcoming. Both interviews have been very telling in their dishonesty.
