Thursday night on the 'Daily Show,' host Jon Stewart mocked Republicans for their negative response to the death of Libyan leader/dictator/terrorist Moammar Khadafy (video below). Several Republicans, from Mitt Romney to former U.S. ambassador John Bolton, have played down his death, while Donald Trump castigated Obama for not getting Libya's oil.
“Is there no Republican,” asked Stewart, “that can be gracious and statesmen-like in this situation? We removed a dictator in six months, losing no American soldiers, spending, like, a billion dollars rather than a trillion dollars, and engendering what appears to be goodwill with the people who now have a prideful story of their own independence to tell… not to mention oil, they have oil. Anybody wanna give credit?”
He then played a clip of Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Sen. John McCain giving credit to the French and British, which prompted Stewart to ask: “What the fuck is wrong with you?”
