Jon Stewart Rips Into GOP for Derailing Historic Iran Agreement
The much-heralded historic nuclear agreement between Iran and the U.S. has come to a standstill, to the surprise of pretty much no one.

But once Israel and congressional Republicans got involved, all bets were off.
As Jon Stewart put it, “Saying ‘the agreement could be derailed by congressional Republicans’ is like the political version of saying ‘in bed’ after reading a fortune cookie.” At this point, it’s just a punchline.
