Stewart Rips Fox for Buying Putin’s ‘Bullsh*t’: ‘What the Hell Is Wrong with These People?’

Jon Stewart spent some time mocking the “self-delusional autocrat” known as Vladimir Putin (whose idea of “conversation” basically boils down to “shut the fuck up”) before wondering why Fox News is so enthralled with the idea that Putin is a strong, tiger-wrestling leader and President Obama is a weak, mom jeans-wearing pansy.

Stewart went on about how crazy Putin is before asking, “Who would be fooled by this guy’s bullshit?” That, of course, led to the requisite montage of Fox News personalities giving almost-glowing praise to Putin, pointing out to them that “Putin doesn’t actually wrestle bears and tigers, that’s propaganda!”

But what Stewart found strangest was that whenever Obama asserts his authority, Fox News goes to down on how lawless and imperial he’s being, so in other words, Stewart summed up, “Barack Obama is a weak, mom jeans-wearing dictator king!” He asked bewilderedly, “What the hell is wrong with these people?!”
