Stewart Pans GOP For Being Too Crazy To Capitalize On Problems With ACA Rollout

Jon Stewart started things off this Monday with some criticism of the Affordable Care Act rollout, but most of his ire was reserved for the wingnut Republicans who just want to burn the place down.

The Daily Show's Jon Stewart opened up this Monday's show by panning some of the problems with the initial rollout of the Affordable Care Act, but most of his ire was reserved for Republicans who are too batsh*t crazy to even take advantage of the situation:

Jon Stewart: Republicans can’t take advantage of Obamacare’s problems because ‘they’re f*cking nuts’:

Daily Show host Jon Stewart was taking President Barack Obama’s administration to task on Monday for not preparing its online rollout of the Affordable Care Act despite having three years to prepare itself, when he stopped to remind himself that Republicans aren’t able to capitalize on that kind of mistake.

“Oh, right, I forgot — they’re f*cking nuts,” Stewart said of GOP lawmakers. “The most egregious and blatant incompetence still pales in comparison to these guys.”

Stewart also lampooned Republicans’ insistence on tying the debate over raising the federal debt limit to their opposition to the new law, concocting a scenario in which they would refuse to send Bruce Willis to save the Earth in the movie Armageddon unless Democrats agreed to defund it, singling Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX) out for his statement that “in my household budget some bills that have to be paid and some bills that only paid partially.”

“What a great strategy,” Stewart said sarcastically. “That was my strategy — in college, when I smoked a lot of pot and worked at Cinnabon.”

Stewart wrapped things up with Samantha Bee representing Team Incompetence and Jason Jones representing Team Nihilism for some commentary.
