Jon Stewart and the Daily Show crew are huge Obama fans. But they’ve been having more and more of a problem with him when he hasn’t been as Left as they’d like. It’s gotten so bad that they have to defend Fox News from being attacked by the Obama administration. In a recent Daily Show broadcast, Stewart railed against Obama.
for going after whistleblowers, journalists, hackers, potheads, et cetera, but not sending even one person involved in the financial crisis to prison. Stewart mocked the administration for targeting Fox News’ James Rosen and giving people “unusually harsh punishments” disproportionate to their crimes.
Stewart kept the one-two punches going, claiming that Obama is stifling journalism:
But the Obama administration has prosecuted more whistleblowers than any other in history, leading Stewart to remark, “They believe in freedom of the press, just not freedom of speech for people who might talk to the press”. He mocked the DOJ going after James Rosen for a scoop on North Korea responding to sanctions with more nuclear tests, since North Korea is generally in the business of threatening more nuclear tests.
Tomorrow’s headline: North Korea threatens to test toy weapons; Obama blames reporters for doing their job!
Remember that whole Wall Street bailout—you know, the bailout for the same people who tanked the economy?
Hey, has anyone gone to jail for all that under the Obama administration? Nope.
Meanwhile, since 2009, over 3 million people have been arrested in the US for marijuana—a drug the President himself has admitted to consuming for years of his life.
Except where Wall Street is concerned. Stewart was baffled at how despite the government having evidence of serious banking misconduct, not a single person involved in the financial crisis has gone to prison. He wryly asked, “What, none of them bought pot?”
But seriously folks, what’s a guy gotta do to get arrested under Obama’s administration?
Wreck the economy and bankrupt millions? Nah…we’ll let it slide.
Take a hit of weed? GO DIRECTLY TO JAIL, DO NOT PASS GO.
Remember…Obama took more donations from Wall Street than any other candidate in US history in 2008.
And now, he’s paying them back by looking the other way.
So much for “change”.
