On his show Wednesday night, The Daily Show host Jon Stewart eviscerated Fox News host Sean Hannity and The Daily Caller founder Tucker Carlson for hyping a video of Barack Obama from 2007. The duo alleged that the “exclusive” video, which was widely covered at the time, had shockingly racist overtones. However, Stewart remarked that the racial component of Obama’s speech was eerily similar to comments made by then-President George W. Bush.

Stewart noted Hannity considered Obama to be the worst president of all time, yet “the best, most explosive critique that you could deliver of the worst president we have ever had in this country is treating us to some reanimated bullshit video that has already been seen as though it were the Rodney King tape in reverse.
