The Daily Show host has remained a steadfast presence on TV amid the pandemic and George Floyd killing and aftermath, offering up his takes on social and political issues.

‘I don’t know what made that video more painful for people to watch,’ he said. ‘The fact that that man was having his life taken in front of our eyes, the fact that we were watching someone being murdered by someone whose job is to protect and serve, or the fact that he seemed so calm doing it.
‘There was a black man, on the ground, in handcuffs, and you could take his life, so you did. Almost knowing that there would be no ramifications.’
Beauty: The Friday Night Lights star has focused her efforts on animal rights in recent months
The Friday Night Lights star has focused her efforts on animal rights, making headlines when she asked a Myrtle Beach, South Carolina zoo to release a tiger named Lyla into a wildlife sanctuary amid ongoing health struggles for the animal.
‘I understand that Waccatee Zoo visitors have documented Lila’s worsening condition, how she incessantly licks at her bare skin and stands in a hunched posture inside her cramped cage,’ Kelly said in a letter to zoo owners Kathleen and Jeff Futrell published on Page Six last month.
She added: ‘Lila clearly needs immediate help. Please, accept PETA’s offer and let her be transferred to an accredited sanctuary without further delay.’
