[See NewsBusters for more.] Jon Stewart may have surprised people on Thursday as he called out fellow liberals and demanded they stop trashing all Trump voters as a bunch of bigots. CBS This Morning co-host Charlie Rose apparently expected the former Daily Show host to blast the new president-elect. Rose wondered if Stewart’s reaction to Trump is “fear.” Instead, the comic cautioned, “There is now this idea that anyone who voted for him... has to be defined by the worst of his rhetoric.” Speaking of Trump supporters he knows, Stewart explained that “there are guys in my neighborhood” “who are not afraid of Mexicans and not afraid of Muslims and not afraid of blacks, they are afraid of their insurance premiums.”
