Jon Stewart On GOP Reaction To Gaddafi’s Death: ‘What The F*ck Is Wrong With You?’
Thursday night on the Daily Show, Jon Stewart tackled the big headline of the day: The death of Muammar Gaddafi… Specifically, the right’s reaction to the former dictator’s passing.
Stewart kicked things off by offering a “Dic-Tip.” (Ay, you guys… D: D: D: ) His advice to dictators? “Don’t hide in holes.” Because you will be found and probably killed, and people may celebrate by tossing their young children while others fire guns into the air.
He then poked fun at the wariness with which some right-leaning pundits approached news of Gaddafi’s death given their fear that another oppressive (and possibly anti-American) form of government may end up controlling Libya. Stewart focused specifically on former UN ambassador John Bolton.
“Is there no Republican,” asked Stewart, “that can be gracious and statesmen-like in this situation? We removed a dictator in six months, losing no American soldiers, spending, like, a billion dollars rather than a trillion dollars, and engendering what appears to be goodwill with the people who now have a prideful story of their own independence to tell… not to mention oil, they have oil. Anybody wanna give credit?”
He then played a clip of Florida Sen. Marco Rubio (R) and Sen. John McCain giving credit. To the French and British.
Which prompted Stewart inquire the following: “What the fuck is wrong with you?”
