Jon Stewart returned to The Daily Show on Tuesday after a three-month summer break. He was away to direct his first feature film, Rosewater, about Maziar Bahari, an Iranian journalist who was locked up after speaking with 'Daily Show' correspondent Jason Jones.
Stewart, on his first show after his return, took on Barack Obama’s decision to intervene in the Syria civil war where the ‘red line’ has been crossed after the government of Syria reportedly used chemical weapons on its people.
“Oh, right — we have to bomb Syria because we’re in seventh grade,” Stewart said. “And the ‘red line’ that they crossed is actually a d*ck-measuring ribbon.”
The Daily Show host compared the situation of Syria with Iraq. He said that the U.S. shouldn’t strike Syria just because the “parade of idiots who got the same issue wrong in Iraq — or as those people are known on cable, experts” are pressing Obama to do so.
He then led a ‘parade of idiots’ singing ‘shut the f**k up.” Stewart also mocked the President Obama who said that the intervention in Syria will be for a limited period of time and will not involve ground troops.
“You’re saying the only way to keep America’s pen*s from looking small is to take a somewhat ineffective action, purposefully designed to accomplish very little. We’ll call it, ‘Operation: Just The Tip,’” Jon Stewart said and finished the segment.
