WATCH: Jon Stewart Mocks Koch Brothers $900 Million Campaign Pledge - 'Behold Our Benevolent Overlords'
Jon Stewart took aim at the Koch brothers' plan to spend $900 million on the 2016 election cycle Wednesday night. But don't worry, there's a good chance that they are not seeking "control over the levers of democracy," perhaps they would, Stewart suggests, be "satisfied with just hand jobs."
