Jon Stewart Mocks Obama’s New Ambassadors to Argentina and Hungary (Colleen Bell) … Then Shreds WH Spox Josh Earnest’s Lame Comments
Jon Stewart of The Daily Show has been on a roll lately ripping the Obama administration. Then again, he has had so much material. What is sad, all he is doing is repeating what happened. Two new ambassadors, hand picked by Barack Obama,have been approved by the Senate. Their credentials you ask? None. America’s new ambassador to Argentina doesn’t even speak Spanish and the new ambassador to Hungary is a former soap opera producer, who has admitted not knowing what the US interests are in that region of the world. Because she did so well during the confirmation hearing. But they certainly bundled campaign cash for Obama.
Yesterday, we showed you Press Secretary Josh Earnest’s lackluster response to being grilled on the matter by ABC’s Jon Karl. But just how confounding was that response? On Wednesday’s “Daily Show” with Jon Stewart, the host stopped everything to scream out his disapproval.
To recap, when Karl pushed on the pair’s credentials and how it seems their greatest skill is their ability to raise funds for Obama, Earnest responded, “Frankly, I was not part of this decision-making process.”
Stewart was dumbfounded.
“What?! You can’t do that!” he yelled. “That is the greatest thing I’ve ever seen the president’s press secretary do. His entire job — his only job — is built around trying not to go, ‘Hey, look, I just fu***ng work here.’ But that’s what he did! ‘Take it up with my supervisor! Earnest, out.’”
