Jon Stewart Rails Against Bloomberg’s Soda Ban

Jon Stewart had just one thing to say about New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s proposal to ban the sale of extra-large sugary drinks: “No!”“I love this idea you have of banning sodas larger than 16 oz.,” Stewart said on Thursday. “It combines the draconian government overreach people love with the probable lack of results they expect.”

Large sodas are all New Yorkers have left, Stewart pleaded. “What are you doing? We already let you make up a third term as mayor, put cameras on every intersection and, for some reason, picnic tables in the middle of 7th avenue … what the fuck is that? This is all we have!”
