  1. Quite a coincidence, I just watched through The West Wing for the first time a few weeks back. Loved it. Stephen hit the nail on the head, it's political porn xD Especially in todays world

  2. OMG I loooove West Wing tooooo 😀😀😀😀😀 and counting from the last year, that reality looks better and better…

  3. It'd be great to have english subtitles (like the Daily Show… thanks Trevor.) Your audience overseas is HUGE. Automated youtube subs are crap. Please consider it. Or don't.

  4. WTF, Raise your hand if you thought that number would entertain even 1 person,,, Without a Trump joke you put that on television? I can't imagine clicking on a more lame video than that one. Colbert ?? Did you get lazy because Trump writes his own material?

  5. magical music as Chris Jackson walks out
    Me: Yes, perfect music for the appearance of such a beautiful man.

  6. “There aren’t really any towering political figures today”
    nods head vigorously “uhhh… yeah..”
    That’s literally me like our country is so lame compared to how it used to be

  7. He has a nice voice, actual technical training and is usually on point, but Stephen is pretty off key in this…

  8. Maybe not germophobia, but more harassophobia – like, his fingers touched my wrist, or, he squeezed my hand; years ago! Greeting from afar might become the style f the future

  9. A fourth wise man is not wrong. The Bible says there were three gifts, and that there were more than 1 wise man (it is plural), but it does not say how many wise men there were. It could have been 2,. They could each have bestowed their own set of 3 gifts. There could have been 12 wise men or more.

  10. Stephen I've hear you sing, you can do better, however, I think they should us that for the theme of the show, with some revision.

  11. I KNEW IT!! LAST NIGHT, MY MOM WAS WATCHING BULL AND I WAS LIKE "Is that the actor of George Washington from Hamilton?? MOM I SEE THE ACTOR OF GEAORGE WASHINGTON FROM HAMILTON!!!!"

  12. OMG! Watched the show for the first time. Heard this man sing "It's a Shame" and I nearly lost my mind. I'm now a big fan of Jackson and Bull because he's in it.

  13. If you’re afraid of the bull dont stay in the rodeo!
    Eqgfukewguk i know everyone knows him as Washington
    But benNY-

  14. Awkward interview but will always love Christopher Jackson as Washington and as Benny…him singing for President Obama at the White House never fails to make me cry

  15. I'm unable to hear 'George Washington' and not picturing Christopher Jackson and thinking ''he was such a wise and cool guy'' 😆
