The Daily Show's Jon Stewart took apart New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie for exonerating himself in the Bridgegate scandal, at the taxpayers' expense, no less. After getting in a few shots at the media for their ridiculous claims that Christie's "got his mojo back," Stewart and his cohort, Samantha Bee slammed Christie and his fellow Republicans for heading to Las Vegas to kiss billionaire casino mogul Sheldon Adelson's ring.
Adelson wasn't too happy with Christie for daring to use the words "occupied territory" during his speech at the event, which made Stewart wonder aloud how this happened.
STEWART: This is crazy. If Sheldon Adelson doesn't approve of a term as widely accepted as occupied territories, what does he think is an acceptable term for that area? [...]
When did the guy who makes Donald Trump's hair look natural get veto power over every word Republicans say about Israel?
After Stewart also wondered how all these men who ran down there kissing up to Adelson could change their behavior for money, Bee challenged him to do the same when it came to one of their advertisers. Needless to say that didn't work out so well for Stewart.
