Former host of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” Jon Stewart, was interviewed on CNN and here’s his take on Trump vs. the media, and vice-versa:
President Trump has been able to appeal to journalists’ “own narcissism” by attacking them, says Jon Stewart. “They take it personally, and now he’s changed the conversation to, not that his policies are silly or not working … it’s all about the fight.” pic.twitter.com/2N3V5NqZ6Q

Jon Stewart understands Trump better than most journalists who are too caught up in what he says of them than anything else. https://t.co/bCQxarrn8r

Stewart, channeling journalists who take the bait: “‘We are noble. We are honorable. How dare you, sir?’” https://t.co/3dEQALuzIA

Would that include journos like CNN’s Jim Acosta (and many others)?
A certain @Acosta comes to mind..
