    It's amazing how little so many of them give a shit about anything other than getting re-elected.

    The politicians that don’t focus solely on being re-elected don’t get re-elected. It’s a broken system.

    It's undoubtedly a broken system but you don't have to focus solely on reelection.

    Every single lawmaker who decided that hearing wasn’t worth their time need to get their asses voted out of office. That shit is inexplicable.

    I remember hurricane Harvey coming ashore in Texas and all the damage. Ya know that sounds like a Texas issue. Don't think the federal government should get involved. Also the border in Texas. Sounds like a Texas issue.

    This isn't the first time. It's clearly a topic that's dear to him because I can recall no less than about 4 clips from him on the subject.

    Glad he's getting an audience for his points. Love that guy.

    That doesn't make any sense. Dear Leader says that asbestos is 100% safe and it's all just a conspiracy fabricated by the mafia.


    Trump, in Art of the Comeback: “I believe that the movement against asbestos was led by the mob, because it was often mob-related companies that would do the asbestos removal. Great pressure was put on politicians, and as usual, the politicians relented."

    You don’t have to, but I doubt many politicians who make it to the highest offices attack a problem without thinking whether it will help them get re-elected. The “right thing to do” isn’t first on their list (I imagine).

    As a guy who grew up as a teen and young adult in the W Bush era, Stewart is like my cool TV uncle who I watched for news in an enjoyable, consumable way. His passion has always been his defining feature. He was also the first person to call out Fox News on a major platform.

    What I am trying to say is, I love that man.

    No doubt. If someone else had to be responsible for being the face of this and he still had a tv platform, how he’d frame his feelings about this would be incredibly different.

    Also, this is a point that all sort of dem presidential hopefuls should be talking up. Get in bed with Stewart, ride the youth movement, and get the "these are Americans we’re fighting for!" argument in your back pocket for the middle Americans that still (stupidly)think that's what the GOP is about.
