John Stewart Injects a Dose of Laughter into Walmart Workers' Protests
November 28, 2012
Last night, John Stewart sarcastically went after the “greedy, hourly, slightly over the federal poverty line” WalMart protesters, who turned out by the thousands on Black Friday to demand pay increases and workplace benefits.
“You get to work at WalMart on Thanksgiving Day--a ringside seat to the greatest show on earth!” he exclaimed, as images of Black Friday fistfights flashed against the screen. Cutting to a clip of the deadly Bangladesh fire in a garment factory that supplies WalMart, Stewart derided the protesters.
“Well at least where you work there are exits!” he cried.
