Jon Stewart’s inaugural edition of his “Summertime Sunny Time Slip n’ Slide” segment, covering a breezy seasonal story, went awry fairly quickly on Monday.
The host of “The Daily Show” happened to pick for his first story a pool party in Texas that made headlines this week after a police officer drew his gun and slammed a black teenaged girl to the ground while responding to a complaint.
“How do you go from a pool party to this?” Stewart asked, above the chyron, “Assault Swim.”
“When I say Marco, you say polo, motherfucker!” he bellowed, imagining a gun in his hand. “Marco! Marco!”
