Stewart Rips Fox Pundits For Their Man Crush On Putin

Stewart rips the right wing for their Putin-love and for their cognitive dissonance when attacking President Obama. "Weak mom jean tyrants are the worst tyrants of all!"

After first taking a look at some of the really bad propaganda that Russian President Vladimir Putin is feeding to Russia's state controlled press following his country's intervention in Ukraine, and comparing Putin to Jon Lovitz's character on SNL, The Daily Show's Jon Stewart asked, Stewart asked "Who would be fooled by this guy's bullshit?"

Cue the right wingers over at Faux "news" and their man crush on Vlad. After playing a montage of everyone from Ralph Peters to Rudy Giuliani, to Sarah Palin, to you name it over at Fox attacking President Obama as weak and ineffectual and buying squarely into Putin's propaganda about wrestling tigers and bears, Stewart hit the pundits for the glaring problem with their criticism if you spend any time at all actually watching GOPTV.

After playing another mash up of them attacking President Obama for acting like a dictator, he pointed out the obvious.

STEWART: Let me see if I have this straight. Barack Obama is a weak, mom jeans-wearing dictator king! Weak! Weak mom jean tyrants are the worst tyrants of all! What the hell is wrong with these people? What happened to these people as children?

I won't spoil the end. Just go watch it.
