Jon Stewart Blasts Fox News 'Not Optimal' Hysteria Over Obama (VIDEO)

Conservatives have been having a field day with an out-of-context comment President Obama made during his Thursday interview on "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart." After Stewart referred to the White House's public communication after the Benghazi attack as "...not the optimal response," the President responded, "If four Americans get killed, it's not optimal..." The exchange was part of a lengthy discussion on the Libyan tragedy, but that didn't stop Fox News commentators from characterizing the president as glib and out of touch.

On Monday's show, Jon Stewart responded to the hysteria by taking a trip back to Fox News' "Bullsh#%t Mountain." Watch part one above, and part two below.
