Jon Stewart praises Larry Wilmore on last ‘Nightly Show’: ‘Do not confuse cancellation with failure’

Jon Stewart began his appearance on the last episode of The Nightly Show by telling the departing host, Larry Wilmore, “I just decided to stop by and tell you I love you.”

But that isn’t the only reason he stopped by.

Stewart continued, “And may i say something else? Do not confuse cancellation with failure.”

“What you, my friend, were tasked to do, you have done and done beautifully. You gave voice to under-served voices in the media arena …it was a show that was raw and poignant and funny and smart and all those things. And you did it.”

After acknowledging the talents of The Nightly Show’s correspondents, writers and crew, Stewart continued.

“Did you resonate with an audience? I would say– not only that, but in an important way — but in a way that you don’t even realize yet and won’t reveal itself for years to come — and it’s this… you started a conversation that was not on television when you began. And you worked with a group of people who you invited to that conversation to collaborate with you, to sharpen that conversation, and what you don’t realize is, you walk out of this room and that conversation doesn’t end.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I watched this last episode, and Wilmore, and his team of writers and performers, carried themselves like true champions.

There are many things about which Wilmore and I agreed to disagree; but at the end of the day, he is a brilliant, funny guy with a capacity for stretching some needed conversations about race and gender in this country in some interesting directions.

That being said, his unending hatred of Donald Trump, coupled with his unswerving allegiance to Hillary Clinton,no matter what she has done (like taking contributions for the Clinton Foundation from North African and Middle Eastern countries which chemically castrate, jail, and execute its LGBT members, and still permit the barbaric practice of female genital mutilation) did sour me on the show.

And if I was able to do the due dilligence and make the link, why could Clinton, with her vast informational resources, not be able to make the connection, and know what was going on here, and refuse to take the money the Clinton Foundation took from these countries which still allow these practices, on moral grounds?!?

Not wanting to see that certain facts do, in fact, exist, including the Clintons being part of the Narcocracy Dynasty, unfortunately, does not make those facts go away.
