Now when it comes to the KKK I think we can all surmise what their “plan” is. Essentially, they want to use deadly force against those trying to come into this country illegally. You know, because it’s perfectly sane to believe that death is a suitable punishment for illegal immigration, right?
But Stewart’s main attention was focused on Congress where Republicans have proven once again that no matter what President Obama does, they’re simply going to do the opposite.
He pointed out that the president had put his support behind a bill that called for $3.7 billion to be used to combat the thousands of immigrants that have been coming across our border. Which, of course, Republicans opposed. Which is ironic considering the main talking point used by conservatives seems to be that President Obama isn’t doing anything. Only when he does, Republicans don’t want to spend the money to enforce many of the same policies that they’ve been calling for over the last few weeks.
Then Stewart mocked how the Senate couldn’t even bring their “plan” up for a vote, which was a full $1 billion less than the president had originally asked for.
And, of course, there was the bill House Republicans couldn’t even get passed that called for $659 million to be spent on the immigration crisis. Stewart mocked how far off the amount was from Obama’s plan, saying, “It’s like saying, ‘This man needs a heart transplant, well how about if I give him four possum hearts and a transistor radio?'”
Finally Stewart went after the hypocrisy shown by Republicans, specifically John Boehner, who then called on President Obama to act without Congress to deal with the immigration crisis – just after voting to sue the president for acting without Congress to solve other issues on which they never seem able to get anything done.
“Did John Boehner just suggest that if Congress won’t act to change a law it doesn’t like, that the president should? Cause – pretty sure there’s a guy suing the president…for that.” Stewart said in a confused tone.
This whole immigration issue has exposed just how absurd Republicans have become. Even when President Obama is trying to do many of the very things they’ve said he should do – they’re still too incompetent to get anything done.
