The Daily Show delivered a stinging sendup of Cubs fans Tuesday night.
In a segment on the disproportionate impact of "Stupid Voters" on the presidential election, John Oliver included Cubs fans among the group, alongside "People Who Lose Arguments to Babies," "Tiger Petters," and the "Voluntarily Lobotomized."
Cubs fans, Oliver said, "had 100 years to figure out that what they want will never happen and yet they still yearn for it."
Jon Stewart: "That is stupid."
Oliver: "Yes, very stupid."
Stewart: "Because the Cubs will never win."
Oliver: "That's right, Jon. The Chicago Cubs will never, ever win the World Series."
Stewart also said that Cubs fans have "made God angry."
