Jon Stewart paused on Thursday to appreciate the common ground already reached between President Barack Obama and Republican leadership in Congress just days after the GOP’s midterm sweep.
“Regardless of which party is currently grieving, they’re gonna have to find a way to get along,” the host of “The Daily Show” said.
After listening to soon-to-be Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) talk about finding areas of “agreement” and Obama say that he takes his GOP foes “at their word,” Stewart appeared choked up.
“You know what, I’m sorry, that is inspiring,” he said, speaking slowly.
“To see two long-term rivals come together, after an election, and unite around a shared message of disingenuous horseshit,” he added.
Stewart then returned to one of his favorite themes, namely the resemblance of McConnell to “literally, biologically—a tortoise.”
