VIDEO: Jon Stewart Denounces ‘Turd Blossom’ Karl Rove for Unleashing Tea Party ‘Stupidity’

“No simpatico for a guy who started a fire that now rages out of control.”

Jon Stewart had a field day on last night’s Daily Show mocking Republican Karl Rove for all the political mishaps the Republicans have caused which have ultimately undermined the credibility of the GOP and backfired against Rove.

Stewart said Rove had no right to complain about the numerous Tea Party blunders considering he invited them, citing a number of examples whereby the same Republicans who were advocating for the Tea Party were now in the painful process of having to clean up the mess:

 “It’s as though the entire misguided shutdown affair was a culmination of a decade-long strategy to rile up and politically engage the most rigid and ideological pockets of the Republican party…which is why Karl Rove has no right to complain about all these radicals ruining his nice Republican party, because he’s the one who invited them,” Stewart preached.

“Now old Turd Blossom here has to create a super PAC to attempt to battle the stupid he himself unleashed…So, no simpatico for a guy who started a fire that now rages out of control,” Stewart said.

The Daily Show host also reprimanded Sen. John McCain, describing him as the “single least self-examining Republican crazy enabler”.

Watch Stewart let loose:
