Jon Stewart: Negotiating With Iran Easier Than Talking to GOP

The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart exposed the ridiculousness of the GOP in a segment last night on the government shutdown. Stewart’s message: the Republican Party is utterly insane.


Stewart played clips of Republican politicians blasting Obamacare, the reason why the party forced a government shutdown. The elected officials repeatedly claimed that the law was “unconstitutional,” even though the Supreme Court had already ruled it was constitutional.

He closed out by pointing out that Obama is having better success negotiation with Iran than talking to the GOP.
