I’m not a big Jon Stewart fan. I just don’t think he’s funny, or even very clever. I like his books better. I put up this less than clear video because it included the whole segment on what I wanted to comment about.
Here, Jon is trying to make the point that the GOP should have no right to criticize Hillary Clinton’s raising foreign money, because HERE in the United States they do the very same thing with their big donors. And he shows all the big donors of the GOP, and…this is important….leaves out the big donors of the democratic party, of which there are just as many.
Nobody Thinks that when the Supreme Court said corporations were people, and giving billions to your favorite candidate is free speech, both parties went “YAHOOOOO!” thereby making all future Presidential races corrupted to the core, and to the highest bidder can buy the office, and we are now ruled by a bloated plutocracy.
BUT…there’s IS a difference. Hillary is getting money from countries that are our enemies. And while the Supreme Court said it is legal for big corporations to give big checks to their candidates in the United States, it is still against the law to take money from foreign governments, because if you do, they just might end up owning your nuclear pile!
Ha ha ha…(Jon’s laugh track here.)
Wait! That’s already happened, and Hillary wasn’t even running for President yet! How clever.
The real reason Hillary is now out proclaiming we should all shut down big donors, is so that the GOP will never be able to push out their billionaires to run against the democrats ever again.
It the battle of the billionaires! I guess, Jon Stewart has too much money himself to even care to see, that he is bias, legally wrong, and just not funny.
Sorry Jon. It’s just my Nobody Opinion...I know you are loved by millions. On a good note, I love the way you hang your head after a ‘joke’. You look just like a puppy dog that just peed on the carpet.
It’s really endearing.
