Jon Stewart mocks Sen. Mitch McConnell’s take on federal debt ceiling
Jon Stewart turned his attention to the debt talks between President Barack Obama and Republican lawmakers on his show Thursday night, mocking Sen. Mitch McConnell’s assertion that defaulting could hurt the GOP brand.
“The country defaulting would hurt the Republican brand? Yeah, it’s like when the Pinto people were upset that the exploding gas cans were singeing the little horse medallion” on the car, Stewart joked.
He also lambasted Republican reports that Obama got angry during the debt talks. “If that’s Obama mad, that’s weak,” he said.
