Jon Stewart Lays Waste to IRS
The IRS scandal would be funny if it wasn’t so sad.

To kick off his final week before leaving The Daily Show for the summer, Jon Stewart had another go at the IRS for the ongoing scandal over the targeting of tea party groups. Stewart expressed mock sympathy for the IRS and indulged in a little schadenfraude, asking “Where’s your receipts, ***holes?” Stewart wryly remarked, “Sucks to get audited, doesn’t it?” and proceeded to mock-audit the IRS for its own ridiculous expenses.
Stewart brought up how former IRS commissioner Douglas Shulman was at the White House over 150 times, remarking that meeting with the president to scheme against his political opponents “should really only take about one meeting, two tops!” However, Stewart did liken President Obama to a mobster who only summoned Shulman to ask, “Did you take care of that thing?”
