On his show Tuesday night, The Daily Show host Jon Stewart poked fun at London, which has been plagued by numerous security and transportation problems in the run up to the Olympic games.
The hotel the where Olympics officials are staying was supposed to be guarded by 80 security officers, but only two showed up and one was arrested for marijuana possession.
“You know it’s bad when Johnny Wake-and-Bake is the responsible guard,” Stewart joked. “Can’t imagine what is in the pockets of the other 78 guys who didn’t show up.”
Stewart also expressed his disappointment with the London Olympics planned opening ceremony, which apparently consists of letting “a few dozen sheep loose on the Teletubbies set.”

Lawrence O’Donnell reports on the growing movement for the impeachment of President Donald Trump
Anchor Lawrence O'Donnell reported on the growing movement for the impeachment of President Donald Trump during Thursday evening's "The Last Word" on MSNBC.
"The House of Representatives conducted a symbolic vote on a hastily written impeachment resolution by Democratic Congressman Al Green in reaction to the president’s tweeted comments that the House of Representatives voted to condemn as racist," O'Donnell reported. "The impeachment resolution had nothing to do with the [Robert] Mueller investigation and referred only to the president being unfit for office because of the language that he has used recently about members of Congress and immigrants and asylum seekers."
Video proves how far the Trump’s GOP has gone from the era of Ronald Reagan and HW Bush
The immigration policies of Donald Trump’s presidency would have no room for his GOP predecessors Ronald Reagan or George H.W. Bush—who both embraced work visas, family unification, easy border crossings and a better relationship with Mexico.
That counterpoint can be seen in a very short video clip from the 1980 presidential election where Reagan and Bush—who became Reagan’s vice president for two terms before winning the presidency in 1988—were asked about immigration at a campaign debate in Texas. Their responses show just how far to the right the Republican Party’s current leader, President Trump, and voters who have not left the GOP to become self-described political independents, have moved on immigration.
