Stewart Takes Down Fox News and ‘Republican Morons’ for Downplaying Shutdown

The government shutdown has affected a number of government programs and agencies, but Jon Stewart noticed Tuesday night that some conservatives and Fox News pundits still don’t think it’s a big deal. He called them out for downplaying how serious the shutdown is, even issuing a strong “Fu*k you!” to one Fox contributor.

Stewart mockingly praised the “few brave House Republican morons” willing to fight the good fight, which he dubbed the “March of Dumbs.”

When some Fox pundits attempted to mock the warnings by saying the sun came up and it’s all fine, Stewart said, “No one told you the sky would fall. No one told you the government shutdown had the same effect as an asteroid hitting the planet!”

Stewart also issued a hearty “fu*k you!” to Fox News’ Todd Starnes for mocking how Democrats are probably racing to their underground bunkers with their potted food.

“I know that for you, potted meat and Tang is short for shit you wouldn’t possibly imagine eating unless there was a catastrophe, but for the people actually affected by the government shutdown, it’s the shit they eat that they can no longer afford.”
