Jon Stewart Calls Out Republicans For Not Owning The Shutdown: 'Don't Fart And Point At The Dog'

Posted: Updated:

In this short clip from the opening of Tuesday's "Daily Show," Jon Stewart vows to not talk about the shutdown... except for that one little bit about the Republicans saying they aren't responsible for it.

In a cathartic moment that most of us can appreciate, Stewart calls bullsh*t after rolling a clip of Speaker John Boehner admitting that he had made a deal with Harry Reid that he then broke:

"Look, you think Obamacare's a big enough threat to this country that you need to shut down the government over it, fine. Own it. Don't fart and point at the dog."
