Jon Stewart mocked Fox News’ mooning over King Abdullah II of Jordan and other leaders for the sake of scoring potshots against President Barack Obama.
“Apparently you love freedom — you just wish it was being administered in this country by a dictator,” Stewart argued. “It’s kind of ironic, because if President Obama started acting like any of the guys whose leadership you admire, I’m pretty sure I know the first place he’d shut down.”
“What the right is saying is, why can’t Obama be more like this powerful Muslim king?” Stewart explained. “Which is weird, because if I may say, that’s also been their biggest complaint about Obama.”
