After first taking on Fox "news" and one of their worst offenders for bashing the poor and attacking those making minimum wage, Stuart Varney, The Daily Show's Jon Stewart let Varney have it for his recent remarks admonishing Pope Francis.

STEWART: You're going up against the Pope? You're going up against the Pope on how to help the poor? Helping the poor is in this man's wheelhouse. This pope helps the poor! But you're telling him how to do his job?

The Pope doesn't come over to where you work and slap Jamie Dimon's d**k out of your mouth!

I do think we've got some common ground here. I think we both actually agree that some people are being paid too much money to shovel unappetizing, unhealthy sh*t to the American public. We just disagree about who those people are and where they work.

Can you help us out?
