Stewart Unloads On Hannity For Blaming Ferguson On Obama, Sharpton (VIDEO)

At the climax of a tour de force knocking Fox News coverage of Ferguson, Mo. on Monday’s episode of “The Daily Show,” host Jon Stewart turned his ire on longtime punching bag Sean Hannity.

Stewart rolled tape of a slew of Fox and Fox Business hosts blaming violence in Ferguson not on police brutality or mistrust, but on “racial arsonists,” “race hustlers,” “racial racketeers,” and “race grievance-industry leaders.”

But it was Fox’s stalwart Hannity who took this line of thinking to the next level.

“Ferguson burns because of, in part, a mindset that was created by Al Sharpton, by Eric Holder and the President,” Hannity said in a clip, one of two blaming the same trio.

“Be honest my friend,” Stewart began. “Are those three people responsible, or did you just name the only three black guys you could think of?”

The host took on a mocking tone: “Ferguson burns, my friends, in part because of Jay-Z, the guy who plays Urkel and let’s say, Hank Aaron.”
