On Wednesday night comedian and political satirist Jon Stewart took on the unfolding Hillary Clinton email scandal. Stewart, a popular figure among the left, begged Clinton to let an independent 3rd party sift through all of her emails in an effort to end this controversy once and for all. But he also openly mocked her horrible excuse for not following the rules and deciding to do things her own way.
Of her excuse that carrying two devices was inconvenient he said…
“You are a person who wants to be president, which is a super inconvenient job. Did you know that everywhere you go you not only have to carry a phone, but a briefcase filled with nuclear codes?”
Stewart also pointed out that “Since Clinton left the State Department, her single device preference has completely gone away,” and then playing a video that shows Clinton herself admitting that she now uses numerous tablets and devices and also now carries two phones at all times.
He then explained why this scandal should be a big deal and why the rules are in place.
“The rule exists so that the government can auto archive all of your work emails,” Stewart said. “But, since you did it your own way, your work emails are all mixed up with your personal emails — and now they have to be separated out. When we all agree to do things a certain way and you do it in a different way, it looks weird.”
He then went back to mocking her ridiculous answers concerning they why’s and how’s of her personal email system.
“You just told us you didn’t follow the rules, because having two separate email addresses would be way too big a pain in in a**, but you know what is a far bigger pain in the a**? Trying to delete 30,000 emails.”
The email scandal is a BIG DEAL folks, and it’s time everyone starts recognizing it.
