Jon Stewart goes on Fox News to shame Mitch McConnell over his lack of support for the 9-11 Victim Compensation Fund.

The comedian smiled as Wallace deduced that the “certain someone” Stewart criticized in his congressional testimony was Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. “Have you had problems with Senator McConnell?” the Fox host asked.

“Yes,” Stewart replied. “I mean, not me personally, but in terms of getting the 9/11 bills passed, Mitch McConnell has been the white whale of this since 2010.” He said it’s the “cynicism displayed by Washington” that causes him to get so “emotional” about this particular issue.

“They asked Mitch McConnell about the testimony after it was done,” Stewart continued, “and he said, ‘Gosh’—I think he used the word ‘gosh’—‘Gosh, we haven’t looked at that in a while but we will look at it and I’m sure we’ll deal with it as compassionately as we have in the past.’”

“But I want to make it clear that this has never been dealt with compassionately by Senator McConnell,” he said. “He has always held out until the very last minute and only then, under intense lobbying and public shaming has he even deigned to move on it.”

Noting that the 9/11 first responder funding is “not a Republican-Democrat issue,” Stewart added later, “Not all Republicans oppose this, but everyone who has opposed it is a Republican. And it’s unacceptable.”

Jon Stewart has gone on Fox News multiple times in the past and always overwhelms them with his intellect and knowledge of the facts.

I like to remind people that Stewart made one appearance on Crossfire, brutally criticized it, and they yanked it off the air. 

That is the power of Jon Stewart.

    Nothing but the utmost respect for Jon Stewart, and teared up myself hearing first responders in attendance gifted him Pfeifer’s jacket before his epic speech.
    THIS is what we need — people willing to speak up and make fools of our so-called leaders. Broadcast it far and wide!

    Going against every last thing my parents taught me, but I look forward to the day Yertle dies.

        THAT is a Big ‘RED F’ in Journalism 101, no matter how ‘scru·pu·lous’ the story…

        ‘He had his surname legally changed to Stewart in 2001.’

      DUHkota more your style, 5:34pm? Yeah, that’s some serious PTSD there, featured on 60 Minutes! Not only braindead enough to procreate with Priss Briss once, ticket to fame and fortune, but twice when he already knew how fucked over he was.

    Yertle needs regular public shaming whether he’s earned it or not. I check the news each morning hoping to find an obituary for Trump, McConnell or even Clarence Thomas. Still disappointed.

    Even voting with the liberals on the Virginia gerrymandering can’t put Thomas in my good graces.

    Trump is a manifestation of Christianity.

    Does Mitch also fuck hookers without a condom? His robowife surely looks on, bibles displayed prominently.
