Jon Stewart has delighted liberal audiences for quite some time and what he said recently will no doubt thrill them once more.
Since abandoning his post at The Daily Show on Comedy Central, Stewart has been a bit reclusive and hasn’t said much about the 2016 presidential election. But he has emerged with a doozie.
Obama pal David Axelrod invited Stewart to be on his podcast (he has a podcast?) “The Axe Files with David Axelrod,” (Of course it’s called that.) The subject of Donald Trump came up pretty quickly and Stewart immediately whined about his campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again:”
“When was America great? What is this time that he speaks of? ‘81 to ‘82? Like, what are we talking about? And who took your country away from you? Who’s country… Who’s country is it? Take up the argument with the Founders. Take it up with the Age of Reason. That’s — All men are created equal. That’s f***ed the whole thing up.”
Thus sayeth the millionaire who was secured the freedom to make his fortune thanks to those Founding Fathers.
