Jon Stewart couldn’t help but gloat at Fox News’ coverage of the Supreme Court’s decisions to uphold the Affordable Care Act and to extend marriage equality — or as Jon nicknamed the conservative media take on all of it, “Good News-Mageddon.”

Jon also highlighted the acidic dissents of Justice Antonin Scalia, the man who decries the elite Supreme Court overturning the will of voters — except when he gutted the Voting Rights Act, even ridiculing the large majority by which it passed Congress; wanted to overturn health care reform; and even helped to elect a president over the will of the American public.

Larry invited the New York City Gay Men’s Chorus on, to celebrate the Supreme Court’s ruling for marriage equality.

And of course, Larry also had to celebrate Bree Newsome, the woman who scaled the flagpole at the South Carolina state Capitol grounds to take down the Confederate flag.

Conan O’Brien looked at NBC firing Donald Trump from his TV shows with them, in the wake of his offensive comments about immigrants. “Think about it: Donald Trump isn’t even president yet — and he’s already made America a better place.”

Jimmy also looked at the gay marriage decision — and showed that yes, it really is easy to explain this topic to children.

According to the New York Times, Trump "will try to force Senate confirmation before Election Day."

"The president met with Judge Barrett at the White House this week and came away impressed with a jurist that leading conservatives told him would be a female Antonin Scalia," the Times reported.
