Jon Stewart may have taken the summer off from his Comedy Central gig on The Daily Show, but apparently he was keeping up on the president's string of broken promises.
This week, Stewart laced into President Barack Obama for his Syria policy, but what's most notable about the comedy assault is how the host nails a factor the mainstream press can't be bothered to chase--the string of broken promises Obama casually leaves in his wake.
Stewart played a clip of Obama during the 2012 presidential election campaign where he described a "red line" in Syria should the country use chemical weapons.
"That ... that turns out to be the campaign promise Obama's decided to keep," Stewart says.
