Jon Stewart Mocks The US Response To North Korea After 'The Interview' Fiasco
Comedy Central/"The Daily Show"After a holiday break, Jon Stewart returned to "The Daily Show" Monday night to tackle the recent controversy surrounding "The Interview.""Seth Rogen and James Franco's film 'The Interview' opened to one particularly nasty review," Stewart explained, before showing news clips about the Sony hackers' response to the film.
Comedy Central/"Daily Show""I just want to interrupt very quickly," Stewart chimed in. "So in all the sanctions we've had on North Korea, North Korea's KGB and their arms dealers were still allowed to use our banking system? Not that, on average, they didn't make our banking system less evil."Following the Sony hack, President Obama put North Korea back on the United States' list of states that sponsor terrorism. In response, Stewart joked about Kim Jong-un: "You made the list, buddy. That goes on your permanent record. Good luck, Kim Jong-un, getting into Oberlin's pre-med program now."
Stewart continued: "If we're sending a message North Korea a message about this Sony hack, we have to make Kim Jong un quake in his very tiny, but expensive boots."Comedy Central/"The Daily Show""But I guess our anger is no surprise, these hackers violated our privacy. They read our emails, what kind of a country does that?" Stewart said sarcastically before showing news clips about Edward Snowden's revelation that the NSA can read emails, chats and personal conversations. Comedy Central/"The Daily Show""Well at least when we spy on us, we have the decency to not leak mean sh-- about Angelina Jolie," Stewart concluded. "Monsters!"
