Jon Stewart was not surprised last night that Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) wants to spend a year studying the effects of a “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” repeal: “It’s the maverick way — spend a year studying whether soldiers deserve full civil rights, and a half an hour deciding who will be your presidential running mate.”
But after even McCain’s own wife participated in a NOH8 campaign public service announcement about the bullying LGBT people face, the Daily Show had to take action. So Wyatt Cenac, Jason Jones, John Oliver, and special guest Sean Hayes cut their own PSA modeled after the “It Gets Better Project,” which is aimed at supporting gay and lesbian teens.
Called “It Gets Worse,” the PSA tells McCain: “We know you’re going through a tough time with this ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ thing – but trust us — it gets worse.”Watch:
