Stewart Rips Obama: Really? You Don’t Think ObamaCare Was a ‘Hard Sell’? (Mediaite)
Jon Stewart took on Obamacare Tuesday night and how despite all the Fox News predictions of failure, the White House actually met its goal. But what Stewart found particularly ridiculous was President Obama asserting that in the months leading up to the deadline, “we didn’t make a hard sell” for the law. Really?
Remember, pitching Obamacare necessitated multiple appearances on daytime television, a direct appeal during the State of the Union, the First Lady going on The Tonight Show, the support of practically every big-time athlete and Hollywood actor, and even having the president go on a comedy web show. Stewart cried, “For God’s sakes, you taught a dog to rap about health insurance!”
But Stewart didn’t let Fox News off the hook, mocking their “fearmongering” over the law and how Fox News Latino’s coverage of such issues is considerably different from Fox Nation’s.
