Jon Stewart wants to know when was the last time you got angry about the 2008 government bailout because on Thursday night's "Daily Show," he offered up a new outrage that's bound to get you mad all over again.
Hank Greenberg, who at the time of the bailout was the biggest shareholder of AIG and the company's former boss, is suing over the $184 billion bailout. Greenberg's lawyer is calling the terms of the bailout "extortion" despite the fact that the government overpaid for its stake in AIG by what Stewart estimated to be more than 1,000 percent.
“As a general rule, your better extortionists, your better kidnappers, extract money from their victims rather than contribute," Stewart said. “You never hear this: ‘Hey, listen, if you ever want to see your precious little doggy again, you’re going to take the $184 billion and once you get the money, we will also give you your dog back. No cops!"
Stewart also offered Greenberg a lesson in real-world banking, showing him what any loan officer in America would offer to someone seeking money with AIG's financial status.
