The Daily Show host Jon Stewart lambasted Fox News contributor Liz Trotta Monday evening for her controversial comments on the rise of sexual assault on women in the military.

Stewart was particularly disturbed at Trotta’s complaining about the military spending money for sexual assault victims on “women being raped too much.”

“Raped too much?” the comedian asked, before going into a sarcastic rant.

“Think about all the money we have got to spend to help women who are raped too much. Think about how much cheaper it would be for all of us if they were raped just the right amount.”
