Jon Stewart Launches Parody Twitter Site 'GayObama' (VIDEO)

On 'The Daily Show With Jon Stewart' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) Jon Stewart was discussing Barack Obama's sudden decision to abandon legal support for the Defense of Marriage Act (which defines marriage only as a union between a man and a woman) when he made an announcement about a new Twitter account he had set up. "What makes this turnaround especially surprising is that the president's stand against gay marriage has long frustrated gay Obama followers," Stewart said. "By which I mean gay Democrats, not followers of 'GayObama,' my parody Twitter feed, of which there are zero followers -- although I'm guessing after tonight I will have more than zero followers." As Stewart explained 'GayObama,' he had a screen shot of it in the background, and the audience could see a tweet reading "I'm half-black, half-white and all SAMANTHA!" It turns out GayObama is a real Twitter feed that the public can check out. As Stewart predicted, it's already picked up thousands of followers since he introduced it on-air. //www.tvsquad.com/2011/02/25/jon-stewart-launches-parody-twitter-site-gayobama-video/

Jon Stewart Accepts Donald Rumsfeld's Apology For The Iraq War ... But There's A Catch (VIDEO)

Iraq War architect Donald Rumsfeld was long-time Iraq War critic Jon Stewart's guest on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central.) Before they got started, Stewart wanted to clear something up: "Obviously, elephant in the room, tension between us -- I think I know why you're here, and let me just deflate the tension right off the bat: Apology accepted." "No we can move on," Stewart continued, as the crowd cheered and Rumsfeld laughed. "Have a nice day, a nice conversation. I know this has been troubling you for some time now ... " And the two did have a cordial and surprisingly funny conversation about some of the decisions leading up to the Iraq War. (And no, Rumsfeld never actually apologized for anything.) //www.tvsquad.com/2011/02/24/jon-stewart-accepts-donald-rumsfelds-apology-for-the-iraq-war/

Jon Stewart: There's No Comparing the Protests in Middle East to Those in Wisconsin (VIDEO)

On 'The Daily Show With Jon Stewart' (weekdays, 11PM ET Comedy Central), Jon Stewart played a few clips of pundits and politicians comparing the protests that have taken root all over the Middle East to the protests in Wisconsin over a proposal that would eliminate collective bargaining for most public sector unions. Then Stewart had a blunt message for those who have been equating the two: "They're not the same in any f-----g way shape or form. At all. At all. Not at all," Stewart made himself clear. //www.tvsquad.com/2011/02/21/jon-stewart-middle-east-protests-wisconsin/

Jon Stewart Weighs in On The Weight of Silvio Berlusconi's Testicles (VIDEO)

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi will soon face criminal charges that he had sex with underage prostitutes during what are being called "bunga bunga" parties. On 'The Daily Show With Jon Stewart' (Weeknights, 11:00PM ET on Comedy Central) Jon Stewart listed the other allegations that have been made against Berlusconi during his nine years as Prime Minister. They include tax fraud, cronyism, bribery, embezzlement and ties to organized crime. Berlusconi also attempted to pass a law exempting himself from prosecution. Faced with the enormity of Berlusconi's allegedly rampant abuse of power, Stewart could only draw one conclusion: "Now I know why Venice is sinking," Stewart said. "It's under the weight of Silvio Berlusconi's giant balls." A character like Berlusconi has to make Jon Stewart a little jealous of whoever the Italian Jon Stewart is. //www.tvsquad.com/2011/02/18/jon-stewart-weighs-in-on-the-weight-of-silvio-berlusconis-testi/

Watch: Justin Bieber raps with Sean Kingston, crashes 'The Daily Show'

Two inevitable activities occurred this week: Justin Bieber is a featured guest rapper, and Justin Bieber made an appearance on "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart." The former can be heard on the new track from Sean Kingston, "Don't Stop," on latter's new mixtape "King of Kingz." Bieber, whose rapping abilities were captured under the joke moniker Shawty Mane starting last year, provides some singing on the chorus and some earnest rhymes that seem to make some veiled reference to fallen U.S. soldiers ("Rest in peace to all the men that died who were protecting me"). And then he name-checks John Lennon. "Trendsetta!" we hear The Bieb poke into the mix early on. Trendsetta' indeed.

Matthew Perry Remembers Jon Stewart Asking Him to Set Up a Date With Jennifer Aniston (VIDEO)

On 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) Matthew Perry and Jon Stewart reminisced about how they met, 15 years earlier, when Perry was a guest on a talk show Stewart was doing for Paramount. "I remember way back when, you asked me if I could potentially set you up with Jennifer Aniston," Perry brought up. "Yes," Stewart said, laughing. "Which I thought it was funny because I couldn't even get a date with Jennifer Aniston." "Here's the sad thing, every guest we had on I asked that question to," Stewart kidded. "If we had a guy on with condors, I was like 'do you know Jennifer Aniston by any chance?'" A previous episode of 'The Daily Show' revealed that Aniston and Stewart did once go on what Stewart described as a date, but what Aniston classified as more of a group outing. So, kidding aside, Stewart was in fact working more than just the 'Friends' angle during his youthful pursuit of Aniston. //www.tvsquad.com/2011/02/03/matthew-perry-remembers-jon-stewart-asking-him-to-set-up-a-date/
