‘Go F*ck Yourself’: Stewart Goes Off over GOP Hypocrisy on Spending

Jon Stewart pointed out an odd disparity Thursday night: why are Republicans who always offer blank checks for wars and providing aid to foreign countries are suddenly very concerned about the U.S. having no money when it comes to entitlements and programs to help the poor.

Stewart rounded up all sorts of Republicans who’ve pushed for U.S. involvement in plenty of other nations, but when it comes to domestic programs they’ve been much more reluctant to cut the purse strings. Stewart explained, “When we give other countries government assistance, they handle it great. But when we get it ourselves, we fuck it all up.”

Stewart singled out one Republican senator in particular, Jeff Sessions, for not worrying much about the consequences of spending money abroad while being wary of creating more entitlements through a GI reform bill. Stewart responded, “Go fuck yourself.”
