    He hates President Trump, but he also hates congress that hates Trump. So does he honestly like anyone??? He only does what is good for himself. 911 heroes forever will be in my prayers, but I do not blame this on Trump. Get your sh*t together and stop hating republicans.

    The passion that John speaks with, no pre-written speech, no teleprompter, he is a brilliant man, something the White House is missing today. The man is fearless, because he can back his facts up.

    CNN this is a disgusting title. The whole point of this speech was not about Jon Stewart. It's about the men and women he is representing. Those who are being wronged. Don't be so vile as to erase these people like congress is doing. Shameless sensationalism.

    He’s entirely correct. These people should have recieved the BEST medical care for the rest of their lives, and it’s a fucking embarrassment that he had to say all of this.

    I've said it 100 times....Jon Stewart for President of the United States of America. Want to drain the swamp for real?? That's the guy. Want to hold congress and the senate accountable?? He's the man. Want the end of nepotism and elitism once and for all in this country he's the guy. He is what our nation needs to be strong again without arrogance. Strength in unity and justice. Wish he would just stand up and take about 8 years for the team....be our President.

God damn, for real why was this ever a question, all the money this country pisses away and they deliberated this, absolutely despicable, on top of that half don't even show up, I don't care what side of the line you fall on wtf are we doing letting these people be our representatives? How could you ever even question not taking care of first responders. I'm an a American and this is not my country, we stand for nothing to even question this, a go fund me would have a better response time, I'm sick to my stomach

    So this is where they have been hiding john stewart. The new propaganda machine doesnt like John stewart very much. They like ripping off HIS platform the Daily Show with petty South African propaganda otherwise known as Trevor Noah and ArkAngel. You get that? Trevor NOAH of ARKANGEL? Thats some obsession with apocalypse to give your company and stage name.They like manipulating the "stars" HIS format produced to serve their interest; memes doritos game of thrones, the new nikes and a happy meal contentedness of yuppie apathy, ie Colbert. But the man himself they have buried deep down in the American Psyche

    The committee members who were missing are Eric Swalwell (CA), Madeleine Dean (PA), Sylvia Garcia (TX), Veronica Escobar (TX), Sheila Jackson Lee (TX), Jim Jordan (OH), Guy Reschenthaler (PA), Ben Cline (VA) and Kelly Armstrong (ND). Let's make sure these scumbags never hold elected office again in this country.

    “There is not an empty chair on that stage that didn’t tweet out ‘never forget the heroes of 9/11. Never forget their bravery. Never forget what they did- what they gave to this country.’ Well here they are. And where are they?” - Jon Stewart

    If you set aside this speech, John Stewart is pretty far left and about half the country really isn’t going to like him all that much... and yet he still had better numbers than congress! When a guy that half the country doesn’t agree with yanks down your pants and publicly spanks and humiliates you, in your own house, and gets a standing ovation from both sides of the country... you pretty much suck.

    Wow...just... the man with the last word on this...left me tearing up and speechless... the BEST proactive stance? When he told that panel (on a pedestal..oh the irony) that they should switch roles and they should ask first responders the questions. Brilliant. Well done..I'll be watching this again and again.. and again..

    If individuals and businesses who scammed the system and claimed benefits of 9-11 funding for lost revenue gave just half of it back there would be no issue here. Fly fishing outfitters in Montana and Wyoming said" a lot of our clients in the financial industry were killed so we need 20 million dollars " and billionaire hedge fund managers said " well we lost our offices we need 20 million for new office space " and politicians who's districts are thousands of miles away with no ties to NYC said " we need 10 million for a 9-11 memorial on main street" not to mention thousands of frivolous cash grab lawsuits. Do a little digging and you'll find so much fraud and waste and opportunistic human garbage you'll be sick to your stomach. Middle Americans are the worst kind of people. They all hated us New Yorkers until they saw a horrible tragedy could get them free money.

    I really hope this speech takes off and is shown in history classes down the road. In addition to the content of the speech itself this is how you be angry, but get results. This speech moved me personally and I give many kudos to Jon Stewart for doing this. Great guy with a great message.
