Jon Stewart and Jimmy Kimmel bash Trump for appearing to snooze at hush money trial: ‘Imagine committing so many crimes, you get bored’
Former President Donald Trump appeared to fall asleep during jury selection on the first day of his hush money trial in Manhattan on Monday — and Jon Stewart had a field day with it on his “Daily Show” episode later that night.“After years of anticipation, the first criminal trial of a former president has begun,” Stewart, 61, sarcastically began his rant on the trial, where Trump has pleaded not guilty to 34 counts of falsifying business records to conceal an alleged six figures worth of payments made to porn star Stormy Daniels to cover up an extramarital affair before the 2016 election.“And by all accounts, it is absolutely riveting,” Stewart added before cutting to a clip of CNN’s trial coverage, where Jake Tapper questioned journalist Maggie Haberman about her earlier report that Trump had been snoozing during jury selection.“Trump appears to be sleeping. His head keeps dropping down, and his mouth goes slack,” Haberman reported on Day 1 of the trial.Stewart interjected in a New York accent: “Hey, Jake, what part of head down, eyes closed, drool coming out of his mouth, do you not f – – king get over here?” in a segment earlier reported on by Mediaite.“He’s snoring.

Help Wanted at CNN: New Boss Must Manage Restless Journalists, Active Corporate CEO
Brian Steinberg Senior TV Editor One of the most influential and alluring jobs in journalism just opened. Now the company trying to fill the position is waiting to see if anyone really wants it. Warner Bros. Discovery is expected to move deliberately rather than quickly in its search for a new CEO for CNN. Executives are telling staffers and TV agents that it will likely take a few months to fill the role that Chris Licht held for one turbulent year. Licht, the TV news veteran and “Late Show With Stephen Colbert” showrunner, was ousted last week after spearheading a series of programming moves and talent decisions that kept headlines about CNN circulating more often than anything else produced by the newsroom. Licht’s final error was taking part in a profile The Atlantic published June 2 — 15,000 words detailing a “Meltdown at CNN.” Numerous statements from Licht in the story and his questionable judgment in allowing a reporter such broad access marked the last straw for his corporate managers as well as CNN insiders. Erin Burnett, Anderson Cooper and Jake Tapper all lodged concerns about Licht’s ability to manage following the profile’s publication, according to a person familiar with the matter, confirming details previously revealed by The Wall Street Journal.
‘Horrible News for Joe Biden,’ Jake Tapper Says of Latest Disastrous CNN Election Poll Numbers (Video)
2024 presidential election poll “horrible news” for President Joe Biden, as it found 66% of surveyed Americans say a Biden victory would either be a disaster or a setback for the country. “When it comes to how voters see Joe Biden and another presidential term, I mean those are some bad numbers,” Tapper said.The poll, released Thursday and conducted last week, found that 41% of Americans believed it would be a “disaster” if Biden were re-elected next fall, while 26% said it would be a “setback.” Watch the full video above (video via Tom Elliott on Twitter).The poll also found that while Biden would still likely receive the vast majority of Democratic votes in 2024, his overall approval rating sat at just 35% – with popularity declining among Democrats and independents recently. “Views of Biden are sharply more negative than are views of each of the three living Democratic past presidents,” the poll wrote.“That’s a big warning sign,” CNN Political Director David Chalian told Tapper of Biden’s dropoff among independents. Current approval numbers are nearly identical to that of his likely opponent Donald Trump, according to the poll. “It’s worse for Biden, but for both of them, most of the American people think electing them would be a disaster or a setback for both Joe Biden and Donald Trump,” Tapper summarized. “It is not an election the American people want,” Chalian replied.“What a country,” Tapper concluded.Following what many deemed a disastrous town hall featuring Trump earlier this month on CNN, Fox News has lined up another town hall with the former president moderated by show host Sean Hannity.
