(Newser) – Jon Stewart made another guest appearance on Stephen Colbert's show Monday night, and while he dished plenty of scorn toward President Trump—"Trump lies more in one press conference than CNN does in a year, and this is coming from a guy, who as you know, hates CNN"—his main message was directed toward the media. As USA Today notes, he phrased it in the form of relationship advice: "Stop your whining" and "obsessing" about Trump, he advised, and "kick him to the curb." The main gist:

  • “This breakup with Donald Trump has given you, the media, an amazing opportunity for self-reflection and improvement. Instead of worrying about whether Trump is un-American, or if he thinks you’re the enemy, or if he’s being mean to you, or if he’s going to let you go back into the briefings, do something for yourself. Self-improvement! Take up a hobby. I recommend journalism.”
