WATCH: Jon Stewart Roasts Right for Wishing Obama Would Act More Like a Muslim King


Jon Stewart just nailed Fox newsians and the rest of the right-wing universe last night for out-and-out hypocrisy in its worship of King Abdullah of Jordan, and desire for Obama to be more like a Muslim, military dictator king.

The absurdity is just too much to ignore. Fox and other right-wing idiots continually accuse Obama of being a Koran-worshipping dictator (after all, his campaign slogan was, "Yes We Koran," Stewart quips.)

Now they are falling over themselves over King Abdullah's Clint Eastwood-like response to ISIS. Or they want him to be like al Sisi of Egypt, or Putin. Now, those are some real leaders!

Meanwhile, the U.S. has dropped 80 percent of the airstrikes on ISIS, a fact that Fox newsians perversely ignore.

In essence, the right-wing loves their freedom like no other, "They just wish it was being administered by a dictator," Stewart sums up.
