Jon Stewart was sickened and nearly speechless Tuesday night over the details of the newly released Senate torture report.
“The Daily Show” host followed Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) as she ran down the harsh techniques CIA officers used to interrogate detainees after the 9/11 attacks, but it was the rectal feeding that prompted Stewart to cut to a clip of Mr. Creosote projectile vomiting in Monty Python’s “The Meaning Of Life.”
“It’s funny, I just made this movie about a guy who triumphs over the inhuman conditions in his imprisonment in an authoritarian country, and I don’t think they did half that shit to him,” Stewart said about his new film “Rosewater.”
Stewart also took former President George W. Bush to task for declaring that his government “does not torture people,” even after the CIA told him about its harsh interrogation methods.
“If that famed painter of cats and feet says we didn’t torture, who are we to disagree?” he asked.
