Jon Stewart On Obamacare Glitches: Americans Will Wait For iPhones, But Not Health Care (VIDEO)

With visitors to the Obamacare health exchange website facing long delays, Jon Stewart made a point Monday to clarify the public’s priorities.

“Alright, let’s get one thing straight about this country,” Stewart said. “We will camp out all night to be the first people to buy a phone or see a movie about shirtless werewolves, but you got 10 minutes to get me this f*ckin’ health care. You understand what I’m talkin’ about?”

But Stewart found it rich that the most technologically savvy administration in history couldn’t get the web rollout quite right, joking that it would be like if Abaraham Lincoln “didn’t bother proofreading the Emancipation Proclamation and ended up freeing the Daves.”
