‘The Daily Show’s’ Jon Stewart Nails Chris Christie on Bridge Scandal [VIDEO]
As regular viewers of The Daily Show know, host Jon Stewart was raised in Lawrenceville, NJ and attended Lawrence High School. So it was no surprise that on last night’s episode, the political satirist was harsh on Governor Chris Christie and the ongoing “Bridgegate” scandal.
On a typical night, Stewart will lean on his cast of characters as “senior correspondents” when dealing with the big issues of the day. However, last night was different as Stewart himself acted as his own “senior New Jersey correspondent.” The Daily Show host cleverly voiced his disappointment over the suspicious bridge closures in September and NJ’s history of corruption.
Joking that Christie’s staff should have spoken in “Jersey code,” he added
You ought to be ashamed of yourselves. You’re an embarrassment to dialogue.
Pointing out that this could potentially damage Christie’s hopes and favorability for a 2016 Presidency run, Stewart said
You can probably now see Paul Ryan’s b*ner from space.
