The Daily Show's Jon Stewart gave Rudy Giuliani the treatment he deserves after his attacks on President Obama over the last week and his claim that the president supposedly doesn't love America.

The Daily Show's Jon Stewart took a whack at Mr. A-Noun-Verb-and-9-11 this Monday and his ridiculous statement that he's since tripled down on that President Obama supposedly doesn't love America and gave him the treatment he deserves.

After first discussing the fundraiser where Giuliani had to warn the group that what he was about to say was offensive, when, as Stewart noted, hearing someone say horrible things about President Obama is pretty much what that group expected to hear at that fundraiser, Stewart tore into Giuliani for his remarks that he, and not President Obama was the one who almost had a "building fall on him" on 9-11.

STEWART: Shut up. You know you’re not the mayor of 9-11, right? You don’t own 9/11. You don’t own anything but the unique willingness to crassly exploit it.

As Stewart went onto explain, Giuliani was "so far out on the deep end on this" that even running to the usually loving arms of Megyn Kelly didn't work out so well and he had to turn to Fox's Hannity instead to have his hatred validated.

Jon wrapped things up by mocking Giuliani for pretending Obama doesn't love America because he wants to "transform it" just like the former New York mayor once said he wanted to do with his city.
