‘Who the Hell Is on This Guy’s Side?’ Stewart Tears into Hannity for Bundy Hypocrisy

Jon Stewart tackled the Cliven Bundy situation (which he described as a classic “boy has cow, boy breaks law for 20 years, boy loses cow story”) Monday night, tearing into Sean Hannity in particular for hypocrisy when it comes to “people scamming off the taxpayers.”

Stewart didn’t understand how anyone can see Bundy as a hero when he’s basically saying “the federal government is overreaching by saying it exists.” Stewart also found it odd that Bundy has such a big issue with the entire federal government itself yet holds the American flag everywhere. He said, “At least have the decency to create your own damn flag!”

Stewart then took on Hannity, saying Hannity’s normally “mad with rage” when people being able to pick and choose what laws to follow… except in this specific instance. And how crazy did Stewart think Hannity’s gotten? “Sean Hannity has now made Glenn Beck the voice of reason.”
