In US, anyone can criticize the government, but no one would be responsible.Both imperfect systems.
Who voted these congressmen into the offfice?
Americans watching HBO's Chernobyl wanna pretend like Russia & America are different.#CongressIsAJoke #OurGovernmentIsTheDisaster #PoliticiansAreLiarsAndThieves
Do you know why his lines are so quotable? Because no one else says these things. No one. This has been the case with many of Jon's words. He lends his articulation to the poor, the unrecognized, the beaten down. The victims of the world... and especially the victims of America.I'm happy he's focused on something not only important, but completely non-arguable. Yet, here he is having to, in fact, argue the importance of these people; the same people mentioned by at least one million individuals on Twitter or any social media over the years. These people who, then, and now, have remained absolutely unseen. Today, we witness their faceless identities, as considered by our politicians. The disposable usefulness of these men and women, as told by each and every one of those empty chairs of Congress.
A-fucking-men to that, John!
Beautiful absolutely beautiful . 👏
LV you Jon Stewarrt <3 wow you're really good at speaking :O how did I get here? So sad dude did he said "riddled with cancer?" :O what is this about?
Stewart for Prez.
Anyone else watch HBO's Chernobyl and ask themselves why we're treating our heroes as poorly as the USSR treated theirs?
Jon Stewart is a wonderful human being and he puts most of us to shame.
Tittle does not represent the real message of this video. Shame on CNN for masking this as another viral clip with such a unmeaningful and misleading title.
Its like Al Pacino in scent of a woman, 100 times stronger but unfortunately this is not a movie. Respect Jon Stewart
If they will not act on it shame on them “5 seconds responders did their jobs 18 years do yours” wow very powerful speech jon
In France we say true knights fights only for the dignity of the weak, I m glad I saw that man stand out for these 9/11 first responders. Respect.
Who could possibly ‘dislike’ this video. These are true American heroes...this has nothing to do with politics. This has to do with people that ran toward the buildings as they were crashing to the ground. God bless these people and their families.
Damn I can't even tell the difference between Chernobyl and this. Good job USA.
Now that's passion! This is truly inspirational... Jon is the man!
Damn good JS!!!

The things you do for oil and justify war
Where did the $7.5 billion go Jon? Why not direct your anger there instead of shaming congress?
This is why I hate POLITICIANS
Just like with veterans and refugees, people are quick to use them to justify any immorality but have no morality of their own in actually helping people. Why is there even a single veteran that's homeless, hungry or not getting the medical help he or she needs? Why is there a single refugee who has to be terrified of going back to deplorable conditions where they most likely will meet certain death? This is "supposed" to be the most powerful and righteous nation in the world or so it advertises every chance it get's, and why can't we help all those in need who are suffering? Because we chose not to, because it's easier and more beneficial to just do whatever it takes for more money and power trampling any in your way, crushing all beneath you, listing any who cry out for justice as crazy or some other derogatory remark. It's sicking.
Just sad to see how bad people can treat each other. Working as a team seem to not be an option.
It's funny. I just finished watching Chernobyl and it was horrific and the Soviets sure screwed it the hell up, but the coal miners, the divers, the graphite removal team, they weren't lied to, and they got healthcare immediately and without cost. I'm looking forward to the HBO mini series on responding to 9/11 that ends in this speech.
Most of them probably weren't even listening... they were probably just waiting for him to finish so they could countinue the motion on the floor at a later date when there are enough chair members present to vote in a closed session...Never Forget...unless you're in Congress...then at least try to remember to never forget about it entirely...i mean... i know that the migrant refugees and the dreamers' rights are virtually neck and neck with the first responders health and lives... i mean duh...a baby would know that those two issues are virtually indistinguishable in the context of priority and congressional duties...
Ladies and Gentlemen, here are the committee members who were absent: The subcommittee has 14 members.The subcommittee members who were MIA when Stewart and Alvarez spoke include Democratic Reps. Eric Swalwell of California, Madeleine Dean of Pennyslvania, and Sylvia Garcia, Veronica Escobar and Sheila Jackson, all of Texas. Swalwell is running for president.The Republican members who were missing during their testimony were Louie Gohmert of Texas, Jim Jordan of Ohio, Guy Reschenthaler of Pennsylvania, Ben Cline of Virginia and Kelly Armstrong of North Dakota.
Little jon is up there swinging away at an enemy that doesn't exist. Bipartisan support from the get go. What cynical theatrics. Then he goes on the talk shows to shower more lies about mean old Republicans. And I thought little jon had retired from the fake news business.
So typical, people like you can prop these people up for your own ends but can't even help them. Same shit as using veterans to not care about refugees when you don't even give a shit about veterans, just a name to throw around as an excuse to do whatever. It's disgusting, makes me ashamed of this country which is so unfortunate.
Not American but I was moved by this. Good job Jon. We are taught to be patriotic to a country run by people who dont give a fuck about us. Patriotism is for fools
If the people of this country don't get that we are nothing more then pawns. We still have a long way to go, it's even more interesting to me that Colin Kaepernick. Went through what congress should be going through, just goes to show you how dumb Americans are.
Who the hell down votes this video? What is wrong with you? Worthless bastards!
People who see or hear anything that casts the republican party in a dim light they consider "fake news" and despite making fun of others for being offended at legitimate concerns get offended themselves by reality.
People/government don't give 2 fucks about shit until it's their son/daughter/brother/sister/mom/dad.
I don't think I have ever been moved...like this.....God Bless you, Jon Stewart.
Bloody disgusting. Jon Stewart gave an amazing speech and CNN like the anti-American muppets they are have to mock it. Sickening.
Who dislikes this?! Just because it was uploaded on CNN? If that's the case you need to rethink your values and life. Disgusting.
McConnell sprinted in to the senate to vote for the Iraq war, the 2 trillion dollar tax theft & for every corrupt bill for the rich. He will get to it when he gets to it. But most of those first responders voted for these selfish racist republican. Wake up America, these corrupt politician take your tax dollars & lives just to support the military contractors & themselves, the money never gets to the soldier or now first responders.
