Jon Stewart Rips The VA: “Fix This Mothe**ucking Thing!”Jon Stewart Rips Administration over the VA
Jon Stewart of Comedy Central tore into VA Secretary Eric Shinseki Monday over his seeming lack of engagement with the crisis at Veterans Affairs:
Shinseki: Any adverse incident like this … makes me as … makes me mad as hell. I could use stronger language, here, Mr. Chairman, but in deference to the committee, I won’t.
Stewart: No, I think that would be an appropriate use of stronger language. Perhaps I can offer you something. …. You know, Mr. Shinseki, since you’ve headed up the agency since 2009, I think 5 years in may be time to ratchet up the vocabulary.
That’s just the start of the clip.
“We were able to send 300,000 troops halfway around the world in just a few months to fight a war that cost two trillion dollars,” Stewart said, “yet for some reason it takes longer than that to get someone hurt in that war needed medical care or reimbursement — all while we profess our undying love for their service.”
“Fix This Mothe**ucking Thing!” he concludes.
