Stewart Delivers Blistering Takedown of Obamacare Rollout: Dems Can’t ‘Spin This Turd’
After the government shutdown, Jon Stewart said all Democrats had to do to regain political footing was “a mildly competent implementation” of the health care policy they’d been touting for three years, and somehow they managed to screw it up royally, leaving Stewart to tear into President Obama and the Democrats for failing to “spin this turd.”
Stewart was utterly befuddled at how buggy the Obamacare site is being. It’s so bad, even the calculator doesn’t work. Stewart said normally websites are set up so it’s “nearly impossible to not sign up for something,” but somehow the Obama administration managed to fumble at every turn.
He even had some choice words for Obama for defending the “product” of health care and saying that despite the massive number of people who haven’t been able to sign up, a teeny tiny bunch of other people managed to pull it off.
Stewart sent John Oliver to sign up for the health care law, but for some reason he got trapped inside the computer and chased around by Pac-Man instead.
