Jon Stewart Rips Fox's 'Latte Salute' Coverage: 'F**k You All And Your False Patriotism'

The Daily Show's Jon Stewart let Eric Bolling, Karl Rove and the rest of the talking heads over at Faux "news" have it for their latest drummed up fake "controversy."

As we and others already discussed this week, the wingnuts and the talking heads over at Faux "news" have worked themselves into a lather over their latest fake "controversy" which they have since dubbed the "latte salute" -- which is actually just their latest excuse to completely disrespect President Obama.

Jon Stewart gave Fox and in particular, Eric Bolling and Karl Rove, the treatment they deserved on this Thursday's The Daily Show: Jon Stewart shreds Fox’s Eric Bolling: ‘F*ck you and all your false patriotism’:

Daily Show host Jon Stewart tore into Fox News’ Eric Bolling on Thursday for his hypocritical complaint that President Barack Obama was disrespecting U.S. troops with his “latte salute.”

“F*ck you and all your false patriotism,” Stewart said. “When [George W.] Bush took us to war, any criticism was shouted down as treasonous. But a president you don’t like has the country poised on the same precipice [and] no transgression — no matter how immaterial and ridiculous — is too small to cite as evidence that this president isn’t as American as you are.”

The proof, Stewart argued, was that Bolling groused about Obama during the same episode in which he referred to a female combat pilot from the United Arab Emirates as “boobs on the ground.”

Stewart also criticized Fox contributor Karl Rove for spewing “liberal epithets” about Obama to Sean Hannity. Overall, Stewart said, the conservative network was acting without principle on the matter.

“Here we’ve got two presidents, both sending the United States to war citing the same legal authorities,” Stewart argued. “Both without any seeming exit strategy and both holding sh*t in their hands while saluting our troops. But in their diseased minds, only one did that because he loved America. The other did it because he hated it.”
