Daily Show Counters ISIS with Hollywood-Style Ebola Propaganda Video

Jon Stewart is not impressed with ISIS’ elaborate Hollywood-style “coming soon” propaganda trailer. I knew they had weapons, but I didn’t know they had Final Cut Pro,” Stewart said before showing a clip of the video on last night’s Daily Show. “This changes everything!”

As President Barack Obama announced earlier this week, he is sending up to 3,000 troops to West Africa to combat the spread of the disease, while he has said he will not send combat troops to Iraq. “What’s the matter ISIS, jealous?” Stewart asked.
