Brit Hume helps “The Daily Show” host recognize “Bridgegate's” real tragedy
Fox News commentator Brit Hume knows the real reason that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is embroiled in a political scandal that could derail his presidential ambitions.
It's not that members of his administration allegedly closed down an access road to a highly trafficked bridge in an apparent act of political retribution. No, Hume told Fox News’ Howard Kurtz, the culprit is a “feminized atmosphere” that punishes tough guys in politics.
On Tuesday's “The Daily Show,” Jon Stewart was incredulous.
“Feminized atmosphere of New Jersey?” he asked. “The state whose chief exports are Axe body spray and lit farts. That atmosphere or do you mean the feminized atmosphere in which we all have to coexist with each other?”
“Men today have learned the lesson the hard way that if you act like a kind of an old fashioned guy's guy, you're in constant danger of slipping out and saying something that's going to get you in trouble and make you look like a sexist or make you look like you seem thuggish or whatever,” he explained in footage Stewart screened.
That led Stewart to one conclusion.
“So bullies, thugs and sexists are the real victims here,” Stewart said.
“The real tragedy in this entire situation is the overly P.C. vaginafication of America,” he added.
