Stewart Lights Up over Torture Report, Rips Into Bush and Obama

Jon Stewart tonight took on the torture report and used it to go after George W. Bush for misleading about it and President Obama for withholding more evidence of it.

Stewart was practically at a loss for words while hearing exactly what detainees were subjected to, and cut to clips of Mr. Creosote vomiting in Monty Python’s Meaning of Life to get across how he feels. He ripped Bush for saying “we don’t torture” a year after he learned the full scope of what was going on.

But Stewart was also critical of Obama over the White House withholding documents that would give more insight into what happened. And Stewart even went so far as to rib Obama over his appearance on The Colbert Report last night, suspecting that the scheduling “was not a coincidence.”
