Jon Stewart: Iranian Nukes Not as Big a Threat as Climate Change
On The Daily Show last night, Jon Stewart takes a break from bashing Donald Trump to talk about the Iran nuclear deal, which was also a major talking point when President Obama was on the show Tuesday night. Stewart lays into Republicans such as Sen. Lindsey Graham, who thinks it's a terrible deal even though he hasn't read it yet.
Stewart then shows a clip of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warning that Iran could still build a nuclear bomb in 10 or 15 years from now. Stewart's response? "10 or 15 years? With the way the world's going a nuclear Iran is going to be the least of our problems in 10 or 15 years. Iranian nukes will be a break from swimming through our climate-change flooded cities fighting ebola zombies with our teeth because we can't hold guns thanks to our iPhone-shaped hand tumors."
