Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

Jon Stewart highlighted Senator Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) presidential campaign launch on a platform of freedom and the U.S. Constitution, even hosted at Liberty University — with a speech that the students were required to attend.

Conan O’Brien also had some fun with Cruz’s candidacy — ranging from his stances on immigration, to his Canadian birthplace.

And David Letterman had a special feature, catching Senator John McCain (R-AZ) in a lie: Saying something nice about Cruz as a presidential candidate.

Chelsea Clinton appeared with Jimmy Kimmel, talking about her baby Charlotte — and all the fun and amazement that her own famous parents are having with their new grandchild.

And on another subject, Larry Wilmore looked at the astonishing failure of Starbucks’ “Race Together” campaign, an effort to have a conversation about racial issues in America — which lasted about a week..

    This guy is supposed to be funny? No wonder his audience ratings showed only 3 people were watching his show! His entire routine lacked anything that could be considered funny. He should not have given up his real job.

      He didn’t. He’s still a sitting US Senator, now running for president.

    I would like to ask the cruiser what exactly inalienable rights did god actually grant anyone?

    Have you read the old testament?.
    There are no “rights” being granted there. In fact it is the opposite. More about genocide than handing out rights.

    Have you read the ten commandments? Not a single “right” in there either.

    If we have to rely on god for rights we just might turn into Saudi Arabia.

    All of the current candidates have made it very clear that they are against freedom and liberty for over half of our population. The right to privacy is constantly under attack because of ant abortion lunatics. The right to vote is being removed from those of us who cannot find birth certificates or do not drive or if even if they have become citizens later on. Add the attempt to prevent gay couples from marrying and you have a party who wants to restrain freedom not increase it. That is why neo conservatives remind me so much of neo Nazi’s. Each loves to deny freedom to as many people as they possibly can. A country should be moving forward, not backward as the current GOP insists on doing. Pretty disgusting that a once great party is now moved so far to the right that they are compared to the party that ruled Germany from 1933 to 1945.

    Was it the University that required students to attend, or Sen. Cruz? This is just satire.
