Jon Stewart slams Mitch McConnell and GOP for ‘paper patriotism’

The Mehdi Hasan show on Peacock is quickly becoming a staple.

Just days after completely embarrassing John Bolton for his complicity in the Iraq war, Hasan welcomed comedian Jon Stewart and John Feal, a Ground Zero demolition supervisor who was injured in the 9/11 attacks, in the program to discuss their tireless work to obtain benefits. for September 11 first responders.

Now, the duo are begging Congress to try and secure health benefits for veterans who suffered complications after being exposed to burns in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Asked how he made it to Congress, Feal said he had “nothing to lose … and could outlive their careers.”

“I have been in this field for 16 years. I’ve had over 1,800 meetings, over 300 trips to Washington, I know every square inch of Capitol Hill. I know when they go to the bathroom, when they go to lunch, ”he continued. “I put myself in their head and I make their life miserable. We’re talking about men and women who have done extraordinary things to protect us 24/7. ”

Then Hasan asked Stewart about Republican Senators Rand Paul and Mike Lee, who both voted against the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund bill, citing its cost.
