Jon Stewart made headlines on Wednesday morning after ripping Republicans and Fox News to shreds over the U.S. shutdown. A lot of comedians and political pundits had done the same thing, but the way Stewart did it, with his unique ability to combine comedy and stinging insults, stood alone.
A day later, in response to all of the attention that his prior rant had received, Stewart decided to apologize to Republicans. Why? Well, because he “…was way too easy on them.”
You can probably guess what happened next.
The Daily Show host then proceeded to launch into a tirade over how badly the GOP was wrecking this country, how unbelievable it was that they are trying to pass the buck for this shutdown onto Democrats, and how Republicans at this point are basically just “self-righetous Orwellian zebra queefs.”
Much like his previous offerings on the shutdown, Stewart’s take from last night is a can’t miss performance. You can check out the whole thing in the videos below.
