“The Daily Show” headed from New York City to Texas at the same time that the Ebola virus is making the exact opposite migration, a fact not lost on “The Best F#@king News Team Ever.”
“Now that Ebola is in New York City, we can let the big dogs show you how we handle an African blood-poop virus,” host Jon Stewart started from his remote week in Austin, Texas.
He added, “Calm, cool and … catch that doctor and kill him!” referring to the now-infamous jogging and bowling Manhattan Ebola practitioner/patient, Craig Spencer.
Stewart then turned his ire towards one of his favorite political punching bags, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who imposed a mandatory 21-day quarantine in the Garden State.
“Why does Christie have to be such a dick about everything?” Stewart wondered aloud.
Later, the traveling Comedy Central comic took a page, cigarette and camera filter out of “The Twilight Zone,” suggesting that the real spreading virus is merely fear itself.
