Daily Show host Jon Stewart scoffed at the questions surrounding former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s email use on Wednesday, arguing that they won’t make any difference if she runs for president.
“You think maybe her wrong email address-ghazi will be a big boost to her Democratic primary rival, TBD?” he asked sarcastically. “Or perhaps this will affect Hillary Clinton’s standing with Republicans in the general election, who pretty much already believe her and her husband to be treasonous, murdering grift-asauruses? Personally, I think her email trouble helps sew up the senior vote — they can relate.”
The New York Times reported on Monday that Clinton only used personal email during her tenure in office, while releasing 55,000 pages of correspondence to the department in accordance with federal regulations.
Stewart noted that among the items Clinton excluded were memos discussing her daughter Chelsea’s wedding, saying, “I believe it is a sign that you have been in government too long when you write memos about your daughter’s wedding.”
Clinton weighed in on the issue late Wednesday night, posting a statement on her Twitter account:
I want the public to see my email. I asked State to release them. They said they will review them for release as soon as possible.

But Stewart was not buying the idea that the story about Clinton’s email was a scandal and not a “nerd slam,” considering the long reach of the National Security Agency.
“Don’t we have a facility in Utah that collects all of our emails, anyway, solving the whole archive problem?” he asked. “Can’t you just ask them, or they don’t f*cking talk to you, either?’

Fox News report crushes Hunter Biden smear after network investigation ‘found no role for Joe Biden’
A Fox News investigation "found no role for Joe Biden" in the business dealing of his son, Hunter, the network said on Sunday.
The admission was made by Fox News reporter Griff Jenkins.
Jenkins explained that the news organization had been provided documents by Tony Bobulinski, Hunter Biden's former business partner.
"You're talking about a business venture with the Chinese energy company in 2017 at a time when Joe Biden was not vice president," Jenkins explained. "But Fox's review of Bobulinski's documents, which were given to us, found no role for Joe Biden in that business venture."
Trump voter tells CBS she doesn’t wear a mask because ‘teeny-tiny’ virus is ‘so small’
A voter who supports President Donald Trump's handling of COVID-19 told CBS News on Sunday that she does not wear a mask because the virus is too small.
During a panel discussion with voters on Face the Nation, host Margaret Brennan asked which panelist wore face masks.
"Beth, you don't wear a mask?" Brennan asked one of the voters.
"I do when I'm in public spaces where they insist that you do," Beth replied. "But otherwise, no."
"And so when you hear the statistics that are rattled off by the CDC director, you hear Dr. Fauci say wearing a mask could really stop the spread, why do you doubt that?" Brennan pressed.
‘Rudy is just a moron’: Ex-Trump lawyer Cohen drops the mic on Giuliani’s very bad week
Appearing on MSNBC with host Maria Teresa Kumar, former Donald Trump fixer Michael Cohen was asked what ex-New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is doing for Donald Trump's re-election bid, with the former Trump lawyer brutally dismissing Giuliani as both a "liability" and a "moron."
In a week that saw Giuliani's attempt to smear Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden fall apart before moving on to a cameo appearance in a Borat film that caught him in a compromising position with an actress playing a teen reporter, Cohen laughed at the week's events.
