The Senate report on CIA torture that was released on Tuesday is enough to make Jon Stewart sick — complete with projectile vomiting — Tuesday night.
On “The Daily Show,” Stewart ran down the techniques used by the CIA, as outlined by Sen. Dianne Feinsten, D-California, with some other news clips mixed in. And when rectal feeding came up, Stewart then cut away to a clip from “Monty Python’s Meaning of Life” featuring Mr. Creosote projectile vomiting to convey how all of that makes him feel.
He also took a shot at former President George W. Bush, who declared the United States “does not torture people.”
“If that famed painter of cats and feet says we didn’t torture, who are we to disagree?” he asked.
And President Barack Obama wasn’t excluded from criticism either, with Stewart questioning the timing of Obama’s appearance on “The Colbert Report” the day before the release of the report, saying the scheduling “was not a coincidence.”
