Comedian Jon Stewart performed at a charity event for veterans recently. During his routine, he decided to take the opportunity to slam President Trump and talk about his disgust with the inaction of politicians on gun control.
According to Fox News:
Jon Stewart discussed gun control on the eve of the midterm elections and said America’s “not going to f—ing do anything” following the shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue that left 11 people dead.
Stewart, 55, performed at the Stand Up for Heroes benefit show in New York City, where he spoke to an audience that included service members. Stand Up for Heroes was co-presented by the Bob Woodruff Foundation, which raises money for wounded veterans.
“I’m so glad you’re here,” Stewart told the service members, according to the Daily Beast. “I thought you’d be at the border,” he joked, a reference to President Trump sending troops to the U.S.-Mexico border.
“I don’t know what we’re going to do, man,” Stewart told the audience, according to USA Today. “Remember after the shooting? You know, not the one two weeks ago or the one two weeks before that. And not the one three days ago. Anyway, we’re not going to f—ing do anything. I don’t understand why we’re not doing anything.”
During the routine Stewart also commented on how it has felt like President Trump has been president for what seems like forever.
