Jon Stewart Returns: Host Explains John McCain’s Photo Op In Syria (VIDEO)


Jon Stewart was away for a week and he returned on Monday with the same flair and energy.

The host shed some light on the most debated topics in the U.S. politics such as the IRS scandal and most importantly, John McCain’s famous trip to Syria.The Daily Show host explained how Senator John McCain met the Syrian rebels and helped the Obama administration to differentiate between terrorists and the good guys.

Stewart referred to the incident when Rep. John McCain accidentally took photos with Syrian rebels. He said, “It's a murky situation and not everyone is going to be wearing their Hello I'm a Terrorist name badge. Or their Ask-Me-About-My-Kidnappings button.”

Then the host quite aptly summed up the situation by saying, “Oh my God, Senator McCain is the victim of a terrorist photobombing!”

John McCain’s recent trip to Syria had a lot more to it than just politics. First and foremost it was a ‘top secret’ trip because Senator’s own daughter claimed that she came to know about it when her father posted pictures on the famous microblogging website Twitter.                

McCain said, two days after meeting with rebels in Syria that he was confident the United States can send weapons to fighters in Syria without the risk they will fall into the wrong hands.

“We can identify who these people are. We can help the right people,” McCain said on CNN's program Anderson Cooper 360.       

Whether or not Senator will agree with Jon Stewart’s take on his trip, remains to be seen (though we doubt that he would!)
