Jon Stewart on Cliven Bundy: ‘Sean Hannity has now made Glenn Beck the voice of reason’

Published

on

Daily Show host Jon Stewart tore through not only “welfare rancher” Cliven Bundy’s explanation for his “range war” on Monday, and mocked Fox News’ Sean Hannity for exposing his own hypocrisy in defending him.

“Sean Hannity has now made Glenn Beck the voice of reason,” Stewart said, before challenging Bundy. “If you want to challenge the amount of federal land the government owns in the state of Nevada, fine — make your case to the voters. If you want to challenge the concept of grazing fees, fine. But Hannity’s puffery and armed friends don’t make you a patriot.”

Stewart also compared Hannity’s cheerleading of Bundy with past instances where he badgered immigration activists for “picking and choosing” which laws they followed, mocked atheist groups for losing in the courts, and raged against “jobless surfer” Jason Greenslate.”

“It’s too bad surfer dude isn’t a cow,” Stewart said. “Otherwise Hannity would be fine with the government paying for his meals. Also, it’d be really cool to see a surfing cow.”

Stewart also pointed out that, despite telling Fox that he doesn’t even think the U.S. federal government exists, he was seemingly happy to ride around on camera carrying the American flag.

“Did you see that thing you’re holding there, fella?” Stewart asked. “If you reject the American federal government, at least have the decency to create your own damn flag. I don’t give the Confederacy credit for much, but at least they had a graphic design team that was worth a sh*t.”

Maddow reminded of a June 2017 story by Michael Isikoff.

CNN’s Cuomo demands Scott Jennings admit if he’ll ever be tired of Trump lying — but he refuses to say

Published

On Monday, CNN's Chris Cuomo clashed with Republican adviser Scott Jennings over President Donald Trump's decision to fire pollsters that showed him losing to former Vice President Joe Biden.

"I don't want to get too in the weeds for people especially this far out," said Cuomo. "But the word of one of the reasons that there's some resonance and relevance of the internal polls that the president lied to the American people about in terms of what they say is his lying, Scott, that it's a problem. It's a problem for him across the country. It makes people wonder whether or not they can count on his word. When you see a scenario like this one, don't believe the polls, they were your own polls, Scott, from inside the campaign. How damaging is that to this president?"

Rachel Maddow gets to the bottom about why Trump ‘freaked out’ so much at report U.S. hacked Russia

Published

MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow on Monday examined the motivations for President Donald Trump freaking out over the latest bombshell New York Times revelations about his Russia policy.

Maddow identified two key takeaways for her viewers.

"The weird things here are two things about the way the story has broken and both have to do with President Trump," she noted.

"The first really strange thing about the reaction is President Trump’s response to it online. This story apparently sort of made him flip out," she said, putting his Twitter reactions on screen.
