Jon Stewart Points Out The Preposterous Debate Over Bill O'Reilly's 'Zones of Embellishment' - VIDEO

Stewart

In the wake of the scandal surrounding Brian Williams' 'misremembering' an attack on a convoy he was traveling with during the Iraq War, media scrutiny has been re-focused on FOX News' Bill O'Reilly and allegations that he may have embellished his own experience during the Falklands War in 1982. However, as Jon Stewart point outs in a segment on last night's The Daily Show, going after O'Reilly for embellishing the truth might be a bit redundant:

Really?! We're going after O'Reilly for exaggerating being in a war zone? I don't know if you watch his program...misrepresenting 'the zone' he is in is kind of his hook. "You're in the no spin zone" are the words he utters right before throwing it to some jackass who disproves global warming by wandering around Boston by pointing at snow...You're basically putting in a tremendous amount of work to say, "The Emperor has no clothes," when the emperor has spent, like, twenty years going, "Look at my dick, I'm naked."

Jon Stewart Rips Rudy Giuliani For Saying Obama Doesn't Love America: VIDEO

Stewart

Jon Stewart ripped into former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani and comments he recently made questioning President Obama's patriotism. Giuliani, speaking at a Republican dinner featuring Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker at Manhattan's 21 Club said, "I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible things to say, but I do not believe that the President loves America." The true measure of how bad Giuliani's comments are, as Stewart points out, is that Giuliani had to preface that he was about to say something horrible about President Obama to a rabid Republican audience that "came to hear" Giuliani spew "horrible Obama stuff."

Attempting to back-track, Giuliani did the rounds on a number of news programs, saying at one point that he was not questioning the President's patriotism. Cue Stewart: "Actually that is literally what you did." 

But maybe what Giuliani is trying to tell us is that Obama is not capable of love of country because he is a robot sent from the future sent to destroy America by giving us healthcare. Or maybe Giuliani thinks that he is the only one who truly loves America because of what he went though on 9/11. Oh wait, we can debunk that too: "You know, you're not the mayor of 9/11, right?" Stewart asks. "You don't own 9/11. You don't own anything but the unique willingness to crassly exploit it."

In his Daily Show return this week, Jon Stewart took a brilliant look at the nonsense which went down in Alabama earlier this month after Chief Justice Roy Moore decided he was going to defy federal court orders that the state hand out marriage licenses to gay couples.

"In the minds of these judges and clerks, Biblical law supersedes federal law," Stewart notes, before reminding us of the state constitutional amendment passed last year prohibiting state judges and officials from basing any of their decisions on foreign law.

"Hmm. Where was the Bible written again?"
