The message they are pushing is that this is an opportunity to make one of America's most horrific moments a positive.
Jon Stewart isn’t joking when it comes to getting the proper funding to help 9/11 responders and their families who continue to deal with the lingering damage from America’s most horrific terrorist attack.
The former “Daily Show” host told “America’s Newsroom” those still suffering for their heroic actions “deserve our attention.”
“We don’t want the 9/11 community and the first responders to have their issue be swept under the rug or be ignored,” Stewart said.
“These are men and women who have suffered great illnesses because of their heroic work down on ‘Ground Zero’ during 9/11 and during the months that passed and they deserve our attention.”
