Jon Stewart: Congress Gave Bibi ‘Longest Blowjob a Jewish Man Has Ever Received’

Jon Stewart mocked the response to Israeli Prime Minster Benjamin Netanyahu's speech to a joint session of Congress, telling the audience it it was the "longest blowjob a Jewish man has ever received."

“The in-chamber response to this speech was by far the longest blowjob a Jewish man has ever received” referring to the standing ovation and applause showered on the Prime Minister by most in attendance. He went on to comment, “whether or not Netanyahu achieved his goals of sabotaging a deal with Iran or mistakenly opened up a rift in U.S.-Israeli relations.”

Stewart called Netanyahu's appearance "The Festival of Slights."

The comedian further told his audience, Netanyahu "comes here, publicly slaps Obama in the face, and the president’s response is, 'It’s OK, everyone should know I’m buying him gloves so when he hits me, it doesn’t hurt his hand as much.'"

Stewart also sided with Obama on whether it was appropriate for Speaker of the House John Boehner to invite Netanyahu without clearing it through the White House first. Saying if the reverse had happened, Republicans would've called it "sedition and treason": 

"They would’ve gone fucking bananas," he said. "Republicans would have demanded the inviters be arrested for sedition and treason. For God’s sakes, just for France not joining our coalition, Republicans officially had the word ‘French’ removed from Capitol Building fries.”
