Jon Stewart pulled no punches while sticking it to the main media sources on Monday night for echoing Republicans and twisting words in efforts to compare the Affordable Care Act to catastrophic events such as Hurricane Katrina. He addressed Fox News’ Chris Wallace’s absurd claim that Katrina “ended within a week,” while Obamacare could affect people “for years to come.”
“Are you out of your –” Stewart began to utter, before hesitating after his audience’s collected groan. “Do you know you’ve disappointed our audience? They think you might be out of your f-ing mind.”
Stewart ridiculed Republicans for being offended by the comparison, and targeted Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, for his refusal to allow the state to participate in the new healthcare exchanges, while claiming that the White House is “bullying” Louisiana.
“Bullying?” Stewart skeptically asked. “The feds were gonna pay for the Medicaid expansion. How was that bullying? ‘Hey, four-eyes, you need to see an opthamologist, we can cover that. How is that bullying?’”
Stewart then turned to his colleagues for some hilariously ridiculous comparisons and failed Obamacare analogies.
