Jon Stewart Calls Republicans Out on Their Bullshit Responses to Obama’s SOTU

Posted on Jan 30, 2014

The president’s State of the Union speech angered more than a few Republicans on Tuesday night, because, according to Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul for example, Obama’s main message was “My way or the highway, and if you don’t do it then I’m going to go around Congress.” And although in many ways that was the president’s message, it’s absolutely absurd for Republicans to act like the victims now, which means it’s the perfect time for comedy.

Wednesday, in stepped Stewart, outraged by the hypocritical responses of GOP congressmen who have consistently blocked and filibustered the president’s every move, to go on an epic rant about their premium, grade A, grass fed BS. It was the icing on top of the Republicans’ bullshit commentary cake.
