Jon Stewart struggled to find comedy in the torture report out this week. He fought his hardest to avoid talking about it, but had to do a “swan dive into the grim morass of Satan’s anus.”
Fortunately, he found two brights spots to hone in on. First, the return of “good McCain.” John McCain spoke out strongly against torture this week and Stewart very happily celebrated the fact that McCain is back to being the straight talker he used to have the reputation of being.
And secondly, Stewart burst out laughing upon hearing Fox News host Andrea Tantaros dismissing the torture report because “America is awesome.” Stewart said, “That’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard!” He and correspondent Hasan Minhaj proceeded to mercilessly mock Tantaros over America’s supposed awesomeness.
