Jon Stewart: Why Doesn’t Putin Listen to Obama? He Just ‘Doesn’t Give a Sh*t’

Jon Stewart took on the ongoing crisis in Ukraine Tuesday night, mocking some of the less-than-aggressive steps taken by the U.S. in response, but mainly focusing on Vladimir Putin‘s power trip and how, at the end of the day, he does what he wants because he “doesn’t give a shit.”

Putin (a.k.a. “President Boobs Akimbo”) annexed Crimea after saying he wouldn’t, so naturally Stewart expected the U.S. to take action. And the U.S. did! With sanctions! Which Russia also threw back at us! And Russia’s out of the G8! Stewart taunted, “Suck on that, motherfucker!”

Correspondent Jessica Williams then explained Putin’s mentality as succinctly as possible: “Putin doesn’t give a shit.” No more, no less. And Williams pretended to be Putin and immediately claimed Stewart’s desk for his/her own.
