Jon Stewart: President Obama Is Like 'Barry Bombs' of Drone Strikes
The “Daily Show” host explains how the true difference between administrations is “not necessarily what they do but what they say to get to do it.” Stewart’s main example to prove this point uses the president’s own words against him to call him the “Last Rulebender.” Having stated that the government would never kill a U.S. citizen via drone attack without due process, Obama is now looking to bend the Constitution in order to kill an American who is involved in al-Qaida. And, Stewart assures us, officials will find a way because they have a will to kill that transcends their desire to uphold silly little rules. Watch the pundit’s hysterical and scathing explanation of how the government uses sneaky verbal tactics to go against everything it’s said about drones and ultimately do whatever the hell it wants.
