Jon Stewart on The Daily Show Wednesday night ripped into the Obama administration for their recent appointees to various ambassadorships.
Stewart began his segment by recounting an argument he had gotten into with former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on his program.
Stewart alleged all of Washington was corrupt, while Pelosi said that if it was corrupt it was only made that way by Republicans. Using the president’s recent ambassadorship nominees as an example, Stewart proved Pelosi wrong.
Stewart was fascinated that many of the appointees haven’t even been to appointed countries, with one alleging he didn’t know much about the country he was supposed to act as official liaison to. When trying to determine why some of the nominees could seem so oblivious to their prospective posts, Stewart focused on one very important thing.
“It definitely couldn’t be because the new Norway nominee raised $850,000 for Obama’s re-election campaign, or the Argentinian one raised $500,000 or the Icelandic one bundled $1.6 million, that would mean that not only would Democrats be seen as corrupt (but Nancy Pelosi told me personally only Republicans are) that Iceland costs like three times more than Argentina,” Stewart said, mocking the Democrat’s for their hypocrisy.
