    Thought he was outstanding when he told those lame asses in Congress to get off their butts and do their job!

    Stewart is a liberal idiot, but he got this right.

    Congress was going to let funding for the 9/11 first responders expire and he made them look like fools and now there is a bill before Congress to extend the funding.

    Fighting for the voiceless is a hero. He is fighting for the people who sacrificed their lives during the darkest day in our country’s history. He is fighting so our heroes and first responders that day help get their cancer treatments/healthcare paid for as a result of that day. He called out congress on their poopiness and told them to get there act together.

    That’s being a hero. He could change lives.

    I saw X-Men Dark Phoenix today and I laughed afterward. 99% of the times liberal Hollywood puts in their "message" into every movie.

    I almost went up to the front counter after word and demanded " I want my money back where was the gay black guy, the funny fat white guy, and the transgender? I want my money back dammit"!!!!!!


    Dark Phoenix sucked but it had none of the normal liberal garbage so at least it sucked based on the movie alone, which is how its suppose to be.

    He's certainly a hero to the people he was speaking for ... and that's all that matters.

    I honestly enjoyed his show back in the day. He poked fun of the hypocrisy and idiocy on both sides. Better than what we have now.

    Indeed. He's always been a little more bias toward the left but he poked fun where it was deserved.

    The left is usually fighting imaginary battles. This is a real cause to stand up for.

    Right on cue a commercial for Samantha B comes on.

    - Trump bash
    - Trump bash
    - women for president (especially Harris)
    - Biden bad (shocking)

    None so far. Probably my fault for watching Big Bang Theory on TBS.

    I disagree with about 90% of Stewart's politics, but I have new found respect for him after watching these videos of his efforts to assist those first responders harmed by 9/11.

    Do you prefer the opposite? An ineffective speaker whom Congress ignores?
    How does that help ... anyone ... at all.

    I really don't care nor will I even pretend to know his true motivations. The result is all that matters to me.

    Someone had to speak for them ... seems like they made the right choice.

    How is pandering? Pandering for what? He is repugnant heroes and all the people he spoke for just gave him the coat of someone who died during 9/11 because he has fought for them. How is that pandering?

    I saw a quote from a Congressman that wasn't there say s/he didn't go because s/he was going to approve the funding. I don't remember who it was, but that seemed like a good reason not to attend.

    The news has been reporting for some time that there was strong likelihood Congress would let the funding die.

    Congrats to Stewart. Everyone has already said what I was going to say so I’ll just say this. The Daily Show has blown ever since he left.
