Hollywood Praises Jon Stewart's Return to Media Commentary
His 10-minute bashing of Fox News' embrace of Donald Trump sparked tweets from Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Andy Cohen and others.
After former Daily Show host Jon Stewart returned to offering media criticism on TV in his Thursday night appearance on Stephen Colbert's Late Show, Hollywood stars took to Twitter and Instagram to express their gratitude.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Andy Cohen, Sara Ramirez and Josh Gad were among those who weighed in on Stewart's appearance, in which he took Fox News, and anchor Sean Hannity in particular, to task for what he saw as hypocritical support for Donald Trump. Stewart was still a top trending term on Twitter nearly 12 hours after his appearance on Friday.
