Stewart Mocks Obama: Can’t He Condemn Russia Just a Little Faster?

Jon Stewart used the second block of his show Wednesday night (after a full-frontal take on the celebrity nude photo hacking) to mock Vladimir Putin and Russia’s denials of threats and actions against Ukraine, but he also roasted President Obama a bit for not denouncing Russia fast enough.

Putin had claimed his comment about being able to take Kiev in two weeks was taken out of context. Stewart said the only context that makes sense in is Russia will take Kiev… to the prom. He also laughed at Russia’s claim that a satellite photo of Russian troops in Ukraine are probably just from some video game.

But Stewart also couldn’t help but mock Obama, whose statement of condemnation against Russia seemed to be really… extremely… rather strikingly… slow. He even slapped on a countdown clock on the video and cried, “You’re trying to run out the rest of your presidency!”
