Jon Stewart is like Al Sharpton. A shameless self-promoting leech, trying to capitalize on the misery of others. Btw, that flight that he, and others promised to be on “if Trump wins” is now boarding at gate 911. We don’t forget traitors who side with hardcore liberal leftists, then try to run over to the other team and start virtue signaling as if you’ve been on our team the entire time.

How about TV personality. You said comedian, which kinda deducts from the sincerity of his remarks.

Its the trash Republicans that didn’t show up

Perfect example of why we need Medicare for All especially for our First Responders. Democrats and Republicans need to get Medicare for All done. Especially for our First Responders.

First of all, money needs to go directly to officers that were there and not to people who will fall under the generalization of a particular illness while on the job like veterans who were on duty but never was in the theater of combat but they are still treated as if they were because the time frame when they served,So if a fire fighter from Manhattan who fights a fighter a mile away from the towers gets cancer that had nothing to do with the towers why should they get benefits see this is why there are issues with just generally clumping it all together!

These are the people who deserve free / assisted medical care. Not the bottom feeders who live off government welfare when they can go out and get a job. These people deserve it, I’d be happy to know my tax dollars go to them and not the infestation of illegal immigrants.

How is it, that our govt can spend billions at the drop of a hat for more genocide, oil or dominance & yet they protest not having any money to fund the responders for the illnesses they incurred when they did their jobs faithfully, w/o question, rushing in where angels feared to tread?
The greed & corruption in our “government” has been exposed. I hope the voters wake the hell up! Thank you Jon Stewart!

Democrats arent the ones stormong out of meetings and refusing to work if they are being investigated. Deep state is a phrase used by conspiracy theorists.

Republican and democratic voters all agree on this issue. Why is this still a problem after nearly 2 decades?
This isn't a government of the people, by the people, for people.

3 months ago

Republican politicians. Democrats always vote for this. In Congress they all did, only holdouts were Republicans. Fox cut out the line Jon said about how this gets treated like a "political football" for a reason. He's talking about Republicans. Keep an eye out for Republicans tacking stuff onto this bill in the Senate like they did last time. That's their modus operandi in government nowadays. They rule with blackmail.

Why should these former 9/11 first responders even have to go to congress and beg for money. Why should they have to worry about their healthcare being covered.

This should´nt even be an issue.

3 months ago

I don't get it. Politicians always preach on valuing the citizens, people's sacrifice, being a voice for the people.
Yet they turn away or use the excuse that the government process is complicated and slow. Even though they are in-charge of improving the process. Instead they align themselves with personal interest to benefit their career and financial gains.
Do they really value the people and service to others or do they just want to join the kabal?

Very valid points to be angry about . But what actually caused all this

Is it funny to anyone else that Stewart spent 8 years pushing the policies and politics of obuckwheat, pushed the BS narrative of the second 911 attacks being a protest over a youtube video, and only came back out of the woodwork to virtue signal for NYC first responders, a couple of weeks before he has a new show on HBO?

Or is it just me?

3 months ago

No it's you. You ignorant conspiracy theorists are ruining this country. I hate people that only ever criticize one party and blame everything on only one party. Do you honestly believe that one party is absolutely perfect?

The text described Gerard as a “former 9/11 first responder,” I guess because he’s retired. That doesn’t make him a former first responder, in fact that makes no sense. He was among the first to respond, that makes him a first responder now and forever.

I like how the tool working for Fox was trying to justify the absence of all those members of congress. What a load of crap.

2 words: TERM LIMITS

For the life of me, I don’t understand why this isn’t automatic. We should be paying EVERYTHING for these men and women. It’s insane.

Thank you, Jon for continuing to support our first responders. ❤️

Way to go Stewart that was disgusting they can give up a golf day to come and see these real hero's and then you wine and cry o we need raises cause we are doing such a great job they should be ashamed of themselves

Incredible... like a banana republic. I only started following US affairs from the day Trump came into office and the more I see the more I am grateful for my country, a true democracy without electoral college, with universal healthcare, universal pension fund, good public education etc., etc. The treatment of the Firefighters is just one more disgrace on top of the dungheap.

The sole fact that Fox and their viewers are not calling "fake news" on John Stewart's speech speaks volumes about the worthiness of this cause. Jon Stewart, you have finally done it. Thank you and keep up the great work! ❤👏🙏
