For everyone who desperately misses Jon Stewart, listen up because the TV personality is speaking up!
The former Daily Show host recently appeared on This Morning with Charlie Rose and discussed the president-elect and his supporters. Specifically he spoke out against the liberal rhetoric that all Trump supporters must be racist.
“There is now this idea that anyone who voted for him has to be defined by the worst of his rhetoric. There are guys in my neighborhood that I love, that I respect, that I think have incredible qualities who are not afraid of Mexicans, and not afraid of Muslims, and not afraid of blacks. They’re afraid of their insurance premiums. In the liberal community, you hate this idea of creating people as a monolith. Don’t look as Muslims as a monolith. They are the individuals and it would be ignorance. But everybody who voted for Trump is a monolith, is a racist. That hypocrisy is also real in our country.”
Jon pleaded with viewers to ditch their “us versus them” mentally but with the spike of so many hate crimes recently, it seems like a daunting task.
