Jon Stewart on the Daily Show talking about Netanyahu speech

On last night’s episode of The Daily Show, Jon Stewart slammed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to Congress earlier that day. In his nearly ten-minute commentary, comedian Stewart dismissed Netanyahu’s statement that he speaks for all Jews and fired at the Boehner-Netanyahu collaboration behind President Obama’s back, remarking how if the tides were turned and Democrats had invited a oppositional foreign leader to speak to Congress on American foreign policy the Republican Party would have gone bonkers.

Stewart critiqued Netanyahu’s speech and Republican’s electorate naïve willingness to praise what Netanyahu said without question. “It was the State of the Union address the Republicans wanted delivered by the leader they wish they had,” Stewart said.
