Much to the “Daily Show” host’s dismay, New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand recently revealed she’d been on the receiving end of several misogynistic comments from her colleagues in the legislative branch of the U.S. government. Watch as Stewart and correspondent Jessica Williams explain why comments, catcalls, applause, etc. from men (including senators and certain Fox News hosts) are inappropriate and unacceptable. As Williams puts it, “Believe it or not, getting the horny clap of approval from any guy does not improve my day, it actually creeps me out.” Now that’s a statement that deserves not just a few claps but a standing ovation.
