Jon Stewart Ridicules Iran Sanctions and Interviews Robert Gates

Posted on Jan 16, 2014

Jon Stewart takes us through the new sanctions against Iran that many in our dysfunctional Congress are considering. Bringing up the powerful lobby of Israel and the idiocy of our world leaders through the language of comedy, he shows the folly of it all.

In an extended interview Wednesday, “The Daily Show” host talks with former Defense Secretary Robert Gates about his new book “Duty.” Watch as the two assail a useless Congress, how the media grabs on to sensationalism and how our veterans have to suffer the consequences.
