Jon Stewart on Monday unleashed on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) after McConnell said he didn’t know why the comedian was “all bent out of shape” about the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund legislation that has been idling in the Senate.
Stewart slammed McConnell for taking a “we’ll get to it when we get to it” approach to the legislation, and accused him of using the 9/11 first responder community as a “political pawn.”
The article goes on to state the following:
“No, no Mitch McConnell, I am not bent out of shape, I’m in fine shape,” Stewart shouted. “Well I am out of shape. But not because of you… I’m fine. I’m bent out of shape for them, these are the first heroes and veterans and victims of the great trillions of dollars war on terror. And they’re currently still suffering and dying and still in terrible need.”
“You would think that that would be enough to get Congress’s attention. But apparently it’s not.”
