Jon Stewart returned from a long summer break to tackle the unrest in Ferguson over the past few weeks. In fact, he started out by taking the Ferguson Challenge. It’s like the Ice Bucket Challenge, only with mace and tear gas.
But in the main segment, Stewart set his sights mostly on Fox News, which he believed to be outraged about all the wrong things out of Ferguson. He played audio of Sean Hannity defending the cops and said, “You really have no fucking idea, do you?”
Stewart said black people go through all sorts of things that white people don’t. He even revealed that when a black Daily Show correspondent in a suit was walking in New York city with a white Daily Showproducer wearing “homeless elf attire,” it was the black correspondent who was stopped.
Stewart said, “You’re tired of hearing about it? Imagine how fucking exhausting it is living it.”
