For the second time since Donald Trump became president, former Daily Show host Jon Stewart crawled out from under Stephen Colbert's Late Show desk to speak about the news, and openly admitted he missed his former gig.

"Yes, I miss it!," said Stewart, who established an animal sanctuary with his wife, Tracey Stewart, in Colts Neck, N.J. "I spend the whole day yelling about Trump to the animals."

Much as he did during the Republican National Convention last summer, Stewart took over Colbert's show and lamented the road he believes Trump is taking the country down, including banning members of the media from a White House press briefing.

"I can't believe the guy's got the balls to get away with that," Stewart said. "Trump lies more in one press conference than CNN does in a year, and that's coming from a guy who, as you know, hates CNN."

Stewart's main focus was pointing out the many times he said Trump has lied during his first month in office. But how does Stewart actually know the businessman and former reality TV star is deliberately spreading falsehoods?

"Because he constantly says the phrase 'believe me,'" Stewart said. "Nobody says 'believe me' unless they're lying."

While much of the segment was devoted to Trump, Stewart had equally strong words for reporters and journalists who have said the president's attacks against the media are "un-American"

"You know what I say? I say stop your whining, press!" Stewart said, looking into the camera to address the news media directly.

"So, I heard Donald broke up with you. Stings a little, doesn't it? You finally thought you'd met your match. A blabbermouth who's as thin-skinned and narcissistic as you are," Stewart said. "Well now it's over! Well, good riddance, I say! Kick him to the curb."

"It is time for you to get your groove back, media, because you let yourself go these past four years," Stewart continued, blasting the obsessive coverage of Trump during the long campaign in a drive towards higher ratings.

"This break-up with Donald Trump has given you, the media, an amazing opportunity for self-reflection and improvement," Stewart said. "Instead of worrying about whether Trump is un-American, or if he thinks you're the enemy, or if he's being mean to you, or if he's going to let you go back into the briefings, do something for yourself. Self-improvement! Take up a hobby. I recommend journalism."

"So you really think the media is going to take this opportunity for self reflection and get better at their jobs?" Colbert asked.

"I really do," Stewart responded. "Believe me."
