Rand Paul Bashes Jon Stewart, Says He Should Be ‘Commended and Loudly Cheered’ For Blocking 9/11 Fund

A day after former Daily Show host Jon Stewart and 9/11 responder John Feal came on Fox News and eviscerated him and fellow GOP Sen. Mike Lee for blocking the reauthorization of the 9/11 victims’ compensation fund in the Senate, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) appeared on Fox to return fire.

Asserting that he always asks for “pay-fors” in all funding bills, even ones for disasters, the libertarian senator said Stewart’s name-calling exposes him as a “left-winger” before accusing the 9/11 victims’ advocate of being “part of the left-wing mob that is not using his brain.”

“It’s really disgusting,” he continued. “He pretended for years when he was on his comedy show to be somebody that could be both sides and see through the B.S., now he is the B.S. The B.S. meter is through the roof when you see him calling people names and calling people an abomination when I’m asking for something reasonable.”
