The Daily ShowGet More: Daily Show Full Episodes,The Daily Show on Facebook,Daily Show Video Archive After all is said and done—and trust us, a lot is being said—Jon Stewart's final goodbye at the end of his last episode as host of The Daily Show will be remembered as understated, sincere, and the perfect ending for a blockbuster run. Over the years he's gotten a lot out of his bug-eyed, bombastic reactions to the increasingly ridiculous spectacle we know as politics, but last night was different. Instead, Stewart took it down a few notches and just looked into the camera and see more

At a moment when political apathy could have engulfed both Gen-Xers and millennials alike, the New York-born comedian engaged us with a potent mix of sardonic wit, heart-to-heart realness, and an unfailing sense of the ridiculous. As he steps away from his now iconic fake news desk, we take a look back at the range of see more

Because we believe in the power and value of journalism here at Details, we gave the number a ring three times. The first time, a pleasant voice asked us to leave a message and assured us that our call would be returned as soon as possible. The second and third times were busy signals. That the campaign see more

Watch Lindsey Graham Destroy His Phone After Donald Trump Gave Out His Number

Graham one, Trump zero. Shortly after Donald Trump gave out South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham's mobile-phone number (he's also running for the nomination as the Republican Party's 2016 presidential candidate), Graham released an instructional video on how to destroy your phone. In it, Graham tries pretty much every sadistic method you can think of to render his old-school Samsung clamshell useless. He hacks at it with a meat cleaver, puts it in a variety of kitchen appliances, sets it aflame, and eventually just drops if off the top of a building. And now that he's solidly in need of see more

The commander in chief sat down for his final Daily Show interview last night, and either he's really, really going to miss seeing Stewart on TV on a regular basis, or he's slightly jealous that Jon gets to make his grand exit first: "You know, I can't believe you're leaving before me," the president said.

Obama Set to Become First Ever President to Visit Federal Penitentiary

The United States has a prison problem. We lock up more people than any other country in the world in terms of actual numbers and percentage of population. We represent 5% of the population yet 25% of the world's prisoners. Our prisons have a race problem, too. African Americans and Hispanics represented 58% of all incarcerations in 2008, yet only 25% of the total population. The mass incarceration of Americans contributes not only to individual poverty but to the country's deficit as well. It's a pressing national issue that needs to be addressed and next Thursday, President Obama will see more

"Can't you tell by how perverse my photo has become without my asexual male nippies?" he wrote with evident sarcasm. And then he went on to explain why the movement is so important. Part of the stand of see more
