Jon Stewart on The Daily Show talking about Congress

In last night’s The Daily Show, Jon Stewart called out Congress’s behavior saying “We are run by children.”

The show featured a video of two congressmen, Florida Democrat Alcee Hastings and Texas Republican Michael Burgess, in a passive-aggressive argument after Hastings insulted Burgess’s state.

“I don’t know about in your state which I think is a crazy state to begin with, and I mean that” Hastings said.

Burgess repeatedly asked Hastings to apologize to which Hastings refused and subsequently delivered burn after burn on Texas.



While the back and forth argument is certainly hilarious, we are definitely rolling our eyes at the lack of professionalism in our government. This is why congress cannot get anything done; they are too busy fighting like children.
