After we had the CEO of Papa John's complaining about the price of his pizzas going up a whole few nickels a pie in order to cover the cost of taking care of health care for his employees due to "Obamacare" and of course the harpies over at Fox chiming in and carrying water for him as well, Jon Stewart took them to task on his show this Tuesday evening.
As he noted, he can't turn on the television without seeing two-for-one specials and other giveaways with your pizza purchases, so it's likely somehow society will be able to absorb the extra costs for the pizzas. But of course Fox and the rest of them don't have a word to say about what climate change, this drought we're going through and how that is going to affect the price of the pizzas.
After showing a clip of Steve Doocy on Fox & Friends talking about "some of the glaciers actually getting bigger," here's how Stewart wrapped things up:
STEWART: Yeah, that's why they watch Fox. You know why? Because it's so much easier than literally sticking your head up your own ass to shut out reality. So to summarize, the pizza costs a little more, but in return, everyone gets health insurance, outrageous! But if it costs a lot more because human activity is burning our planet to an uninhabitable husk... ahhh... what the f**k.
