Jon Stewart made a return to late-night television on Monday.

The former Daily Show host didn’t just appear on The Late Late Show with Stephen Colbert…

… he sat behind the host’s desk and gave a 10-minute, passionate speech directly into the camera.

It started, of course, with your basic criticism of President Donald Trump.

Stewart went on and on about all the lies Trump has told over the past few weeks, but he then turned his attention to the media.

And he REALLY let them have it.

“Can I talk to the media for a moment?” Stewart said, sort of keeping things light but also delivering a series message.

“Hey, guys. Hey, media. 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.

"Well, now it’s over! Well, good riddance, I say! Kick him to the curb."

Stewart, ever the media critic, proceeded to spend a few more minutes criticizing reporters for failing to truly actually Trump accountable for all he did and said during election season.

But he wrapped up the segment with a few uplifting words. In a manner of speaking.

“Here’s my point," he explained

"This breakup with Donald Trump has given you, the media, an amazing opportunity for self-reflection and improvement. 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."
