The “Daily Show” host took the conservative pundit to task for supporting Cliven Bundy, who refuses to pay grazing fees
Jon Stewart slammed Fox News host Sean Hannity on Monday for his support of Cliven Bundy, who is in a standoff with the federal government over refusing to pay grazing fees, calling him out for his hypocrisy.
“Apparently Sean Hannity thinks laws are served buffet-style in that you can pick and choose the ones that you like best. The ones that you don't like, you don't have to abide!” Stewart exclaimed. “Well, that's not going to sit well with Fox's immigration/healthcare law expert pundit, a Mr. Sean Hannity!
Stewart pointed out that even Glenn Beck thinks the rancher is in the wrong.
“Sean Hannity has now made Glenn Beck the voice of reason!” Stewart riffed.
He also observed that Hannity had criticized immigration activists for disobeying the law.
“If you want to challenge the amount of federal land the government owns in the state of Nevada, fine — make your case to the voters,” Stewart said. “If you want to challenge the concept of grazing fees, fine. But Hannity's puffery and armed friends don't make you a patriot.”
