Politics aside, comedian Jon Stewart does have the occasional moment of clarity. Such a moment occured during an interview on CNN in which Stewart criticized journalists for letting President Trump turn their “narcissism” against them when he calls the media out, making the debate all about themselves rather than actual policies.

“I think that journalists have taken it personally. They are personally wounded and offended by this man. He baits them, and they dive in,” Stewart told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour. “What he’s done well, I thought, is appeal to their own narcissism, to their own ego. … They say, ‘We are noble, we are honorable, how dare you, sir!’ And they take it personally.”
