The Daily Show host mocked the Republicans on Monday for repeatedly calling Obamacare ‘an unconstitutional bill’ when it had been signed into law on March 23, 2010 by President Obama.
Explaining in a constitution-for-dummies manner, Stewart said, “The President is allowed to sign laws and what do we do if those laws are unconstitutional? Well apparently nine precogs in magic robes got together, looked at the Affordable Care Act, and decided that it was not unconstitutional. This bill is now a law.”

Stewart said the Republican threat to shut down the government over Obamacare was irrational. He provided a simple comparison, “When football teams lose, they don’t say ‘If you don’t give us 25 points on Monday, we will shut down the f*cking NFL!’”
Concluding his rant, Stewart said it was time for Republicans to reassess their policies when President Obama found negotiating with Iranian leaders easier than holding talks with their Party members:
“You’re not helping yourself if it turns out that President Barack Obama can made a deal with the most intransigent, hardline, unreasonable, totalitarian mullahs in the world, but not with Republicans, maybe he’s not the problem!”
