Jon Stewart: ‘Puppet master’ Dick Cheney’s mind is ‘the scariest f*cking place in the universe’

Published

on

Jon Stewart came away from The Daily Show on Monday with a greater appreciation for former Vice President Dick Cheney’s boss after watching Cheney’s interview with NBC host Chuck Todd.

“George W. Bush, thank you for not dying while you were in office,” Stewart said to the former president.

When pressed by Todd to explain his definition of torture following the release of a Senate report criticizing the CIA’s “enhanced interrogation” procedures, Cheney continually defined torture as the events of the 9/11 attacks.

“I see — that’s just what meets the definition of torture in his mind,” Stewart said. “His mind, I assume, being the scariest f*cking place in the universe.”

Stewart then tried to get a peek inside the “presidential puppet master’s” mind, only to find a scene out of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

“Never took him for a brony,” Stewart observed.

What set Cheney apart, Stewart explained, was his ability to set the “moral bar” for the U.S. at anything just shy of the worst thing that had been done to the country, as well as his confidence.

“He’s impervious to doubt,” Stewart said. “It never enters his mind that the confident, plain-spoken pronouncements of truth are often times complete bullsh*t.”

‘Do your damn job — or get the hell out!’ Chris Cuomo’s epic rant on Trump and Pence’s failed COVID-19 response

Published

CNN's Chris Cuomo closed his Monday evening show with an epic commentary where he demanded President Donald Trump do his job or leave.

He begged Americans not to go numb to the graphs, maps, and death toll numbers that are soaring.

"People are frustrated and tired of it," Cuomo explained. "The president is banking on that. That's his strategy. You get bored and disinterested. You'll even ignore the pain and commitment from the people he called heroes. The ones who choose to walk day after day into hospitals that are all too often out of control. To be there with those who are afraid who often die alone and care for the suffering. They can see with their own eyes what he is telling you is B.S."
