Jon Stewart: John Boehner Is So Orange He Farts Cheeto Dust (VIDEO)

Last night, Jon Stewart found it disheartening that John Boehner and Robert Gibbs were trading barbs over the Bush tax cuts on Twitter: “Once again, our national discourse over one of the most complicated issues devolves into twitter snaps.”

As Stewart recounted the back-and-forth:

Gibbs: @JohnBoehner You are so orange you fart Cheetoh dust.

Boehner: @PressSec The E-Trade Baby called — he wants his head back.

Gibbs: @JohnBoehner’s so orange his d*ck looks like a circus peanut.

Boehner: @PressSec I get it. I’m orange.

But then Gibbs really got mean: “@MitchMcConnell look so much like a turtle if you draw him you get into art school.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
