Jon Stewart joined Fox News' America's Newsroom to blasted Republican Senator Pat Toomey for spewing erroneous objections over the Honoring our Pact Act, a bill for veterans' health care.

Stewart passionately defended the Act and said he wanted to "dispel all the misinformation being put out there" by Republicans.

“Hunter Biden didn’t sneak in and add in unrelated spending in the middle of the night," Stewart said.

Hemmer relayed Toomey's lies about the legislation.

"It was not added to by Democrats. It is not a gimmick that was put in there," Stewart protested.

Hemmer then said Toomey believed the bill was going to pass eventually anyway.

“Eventually is not okay. Tell someone with cancer that has been fighting this for years that eventually they will get the help that they’ve earned. That’s not an acceptable answer,” Stewart replied. "It is despicable to continue to use American men and women who are fighting for this country as political pawns for anger you have it separate issues."

It's even more despicable when Republicans then lie about new-founded objections when it puts the health of our military veterans at risk.
