Jon Stewart visited The No Spin Zone tonight. He was there to promote his new movie, Rosewater, but there was plenty of banter about the recent election, President Obama, and other issues. It’s often fun to watch these two banter and this was one of those times.
While we’re not exactly Bill O’Reilly fans here, the truth is the guy has a sharp wit and can be very funny. He was pretty much at his best here as he ribbed Stewart about the “callow youth” who watch The Daily Show and didn’t vote. O’Reilly joked that it’s because marijuana is now legal in so many states, “they can’t leave the house” because there’s “no incentive for them to go anywhere any more.”
OK, maybe you had to be there. But trust me, you’ll enjoy the repartee below.
11/15/14 Update: Given that Hannity just attacked Stewart a few days ago in some comments to Politico, I can only conclude that this double segment on Fox's highest-rated show made Hannity gnash his teeth!
And, while I’m here, let me plug my weekly column over at PoliticusUSA:
Friday Fox Follies Soldiers On
It’s no secret that Billy does not like Hannocchio, and inviting Jon on his show is rubbing salt in Hannocchio’s wound.
Billy has a subtle way of attacking Hannocchio on his show. This segment is one of them.
