Returning from his holiday hiatus, Jon Stewart on Monday tore into House Republicans for delaying a vote on Hurricane Sandy relief legislation.
“This is just a simple, down the middle, black and white, cut and dry, warm cup of what would Jesus, or anything other human being that isn’t an asshole, do? And you blew it,” Stewart said.
And to the House Republicans who voted against the first round of funds last week, Stewart said: “If you guys can’t vote for this, then we’re fucked for the next two years. And I’m not saying you’re responsible for all the problems facing our country, but you sure are making them a lot harder to fix.”
