Jon Stewart had a field day Monday mocking both “60 Minutes” for airing a discredited report on the attack in Benghazi, Libya and a Republican senator who exploited the segment.

After what initially appeared to be an explosive report turned out to be “total bullsh*t,” Stewart took on “60 Minutes,” which he said “sort of acknowledged” the error on Sunday. 

Stewart found it amusing that the program finally considered the “is it true question” after the Benghazi report aired.

The “Daily Show” host also noted that “60 Minutes” is “not the only victim here.” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) hyped the report, which spurred his vow to block every Obama administration appointee until survivors of the Benghazi attack testify before Congress.

The senator’s response to the “60 Minutes” retraction gave Stewart an excuse to employ his finest southern accents.
