Jon Stewart Feuding with ‘Loathsome Dude’ Sean Hannity

Sean Hannity Jon Stewart

Television political commentators and talk show hosts Sean Hannity and Jon Stewart have gotten into a new and very public feud. This on the eve of the release of the latter’s directorial debut called Rosewater.

In an interview with Rolling Stone to promote his new movie Jon Stewart, who host’s the Daily Show on Comedy Central, described the Fox News host thusly: “Sean Hannity is probably the most loathsome dude over there. That’s just pure cynicism, and it’s horrible. Everything is presented in as devious a manner as it could be possibly be presented.”

So Sean Hannity of course took the high road and responded quite eloquently saying, “Jon’s problem is he has his head so far up Obama’s ass he cannot see clearly, ” in a statement. “He is obviously better suited to reading his joke writers’ material, and making his clapping seal audience happy.”

“Nearly 50 million Americans on food stamps, nearly 50 million in poverty, the lowest labor participation rate since 1978, and Jon’s beloved president who once said George Bush’s debt was ‘irresponsible and unpatriotic’ has almost accumulated more debt than every other President before him combined, ” Hannity wrote. “Do I even need to remind him about keeping our doctors, our health plans and saving money? And how is that healthcare website working out?”

The comments about Hannity came after the Daily Show host said some nice things about Hannity’s Fox News colleague Bill O’Reilly. “I think he comes by his views honestly. I can’t say I find him to be disingenuous. I just think that, in general, the right has moved so far out in that direction that O’Reilly appears to be almost a Kennedy Democrat by this point, ” said Stewart.

O’Reilly has been a guest on Stewart’s show a number of times.

Many have criticized Stewart for trying to be a political commentator himself while hiding behind the guise of comedy. Stewart likes to criticize just about everyone in the media while claiming that he should be beyond such critiques himself because his is just a comedy show.

Due out this week, Rosewater is based on the true story of what happened to an Iranian man named Maziar Bahari who was interviewed by Daily Show correspondent Jason Jones in 2009. Because Bahari joked about being a spy on the show Iranian security arrested and interrogated him believing that it was true.
