  • Why isn't a valiant man like this the president is beyond my comprehension

  • Good acting

  • Wouldn't be a problem if his Israeli Zionist buddies didn't do the attack in the first place.

  • He hates President Trump, but he also hates congress that hates Trump. So does he honestly like anyone??? He only does what is good for himself. 911 heroes forever will be in my prayers, but I do not blame this on Trump. Get your sh*t together and stop hating republicans.

  • Jon Stewart for President 2020 🇺🇸

  • The passion that John speaks with, no pre-written speech, no teleprompter, he is a brilliant man, something the White House is missing today. The man is fearless, because he can back his facts up.

  • The resolute dignity of the big guy behind Jon.

  • Bless you Jon Stewart. George Carlin is looking down and smiling at you.

  • Ive been watching Jon Stewart speak for long time, and he is second to none. He is also very knowledgeable man. He should run for President!!!

  • There are 2.9 k dislikes, looks like they are the members of the lobby groups

  • The land of the free ... yeah right! Keep telling yourselves that!

    • roseviolet1 you would have had a point without calling me an ass. Now you sound like a moron that read that in a book once and thought it sounded good. Get an education for yourself idiot

    • Freedom is never really won. You have to constantly fight to keep it. Quit being such a cynical ass.

  • CNN this is a disgusting title. The whole point of this speech was not about Jon Stewart. It's about the men and women he is representing. Those who are being wronged. Don't be so vile as to erase these people like congress is doing. Shameless sensationalism.

  • "We don't know what's gonna happen in 5 years" 2020: *evil laughter*

  • If I become a history teacher I’m 100% using this to describe the feelings of distrust in the American people over the state of congress ever since Bush

  • Jacknut

  • He’s entirely correct. These people should have recieved the BEST medical care for the rest of their lives, and it’s a fucking embarrassment that he had to say all of this.

  • I've said it 100 times....Jon Stewart for President of the United States of America. Want to drain the swamp for real?? That's the guy. Want to hold congress and the senate accountable?? He's the man. Want the end of nepotism and elitism once and for all in this country he's the guy. He is what our nation needs to be strong again without arrogance. Strength in unity and justice. Wish he would just stand up and take about 8 years for the team....be our President.

  • One of the greatest speeches given on the floor. Remember. Otherwise be a sheep and fool. "This should be flipped". No truer words spoken.

  • They should have done this BEFORE the pandemic

  • Ive watched this a few times...it never gets old.

  • I'm late to see this but I find myself with more time on my hands recently.... God damn, for real why was this ever a question, all the money this country pisses away and they deliberated this, absolutely despicable, on top of that half don't even show up, I don't care what side of the line you fall on wtf are we doing letting these people be our representatives? How could you ever even question not taking care of first responders. I'm an a American and this is not my country, we stand for nothing to even question this, a go fund me would have a better response time, I'm sick to my stomach

  • Those who gave this video a thumbs down are nothing but a pure disgrace.

  • Bro, forget your political views and give this man his props. THIS IS NOT A PARTISAN ISSUE!!! These first responding HEROES should be taken care of because they took care of us!!!! Congress makes me so sick sometimes

  • One thing is for sure. Jon Stewart will NEVER receive a speeding ticket in NYC.

  • Thank you, Jon Stewart.

  • So this is where they have been hiding john stewart. The new propaganda machine doesnt like John stewart very much. They like ripping off HIS platform the Daily Show with petty South African propaganda otherwise known as Trevor Noah and ArkAngel. You get that? Trevor NOAH of ARKANGEL? Thats some obsession with apocalypse to give your company and stage name.They like manipulating the "stars" HIS format produced to serve their interest; memes doritos game of thrones, the new nikes and a happy meal contentedness of yuppie apathy, ie Colbert. But the man himself they have buried deep down in the American Psyche

  • Is anybody surprised that the country who massacred its own poor starving ww1 veterans hasn't changed

  • The committee members who were missing are Eric Swalwell (CA), Madeleine Dean (PA), Sylvia Garcia (TX), Veronica Escobar (TX), Sheila Jackson Lee (TX), Jim Jordan (OH), Guy Reschenthaler (PA), Ben Cline (VA) and Kelly Armstrong (ND). Let's make sure these scumbags never hold elected office again in this country.

  • "Shameful." Yes, Sir. This should be played at the beginning of every session of Congress.

  • TL;DW: John Stewart says fuck you to Congress in the most elegant way possible

  • The only video I'll like from CNN

  • Those people are true heroes and John is a champion of justice

  • If he’d run for president I’d vote for him

  • I applaud Jon Stewart for not yelling at any point during this speech.

  • One of the most important personalities of our time

  • Such a fighter

  • Fuck all democrats Have a nice day. 🙏😀

  • The sad thing is: Mitch still tried to block this after the testimony. Goes to show you how much the GOP cares about the America they claim to love so much.

  • It should be against the law to stick one bill into another bill. That’s what prevents our country from moving forward.

  • “There is not an empty chair on that stage that didn’t tweet out ‘never forget the heroes of 9/11. Never forget their bravery. Never forget what they did- what they gave to this country.’ Well here they are. And where are they?” - Jon Stewart

  • AMEN Brother!!!!!!!!!!!

  • If you set aside this speech, John Stewart is pretty far left and about half the country really isn’t going to like him all that much... and yet he still had better numbers than congress! When a guy that half the country doesn’t agree with yanks down your pants and publicly spanks and humiliates you, in your own house, and gets a standing ovation from both sides of the country... you pretty much suck.

  • What a bunch of spineless wastes of sperm and egg. I miss John Stewart. He is the only thing that got me through 9/11 and the anxiety that came for the years to follow.

  • 911 1st responder invention that will assist the victims ru-tv.org/tv/%D0%B2%D0%B8%D0%B4%D0%B5%D0%BE-K31k-IdwiNY.html

  • My god Jon Steward is amazing. If anyone is a true American it’s him. I have never seen anything more beautiful than him eviscerating Congress. The sad thing about it is that they are all so dumb it probably won’t make a difference anyway

  • i dont wanna have to keep going back to this video and keep jon stewart suffering

  • add to the fact..that the CURE for this malady,is being hidden..the doctors whotry to share use, and extoll it- are suicided? or taken tocourt for mail fraud??so THE EVEIDENCE..OF PATIENT FILES WILL NOT BE REVIEWED IN COURT ..OF LAW?? GcMAF!!

  • Regardless of his political stance, his heart is in the right place. God bless John Stewart.

    • In any country, politics should only come after the needs of the real people of that country. No ideology should be above any Human.

  • Wow...just... the man with the last word on this...left me tearing up and speechless... the BEST proactive stance? When he told that panel (on a pedestal..oh the irony) that they should switch roles and they should ask first responders the questions. Brilliant. Well done..I'll be watching this again and again.. and again..

  • Imagine what kind of a president he would make?....... Just a thought.

    • There is no one (and I’ve been looking for years) that I respect in the public sphere more than Jon Stewart.

  • Jon mutherfuckin Stewart . Thank you so much for fighting so hard for the 9/11 first responders. More than that. 9/11 mutherfucking responders! You ALL have to know how much you mean to all of us that witnessed that disaster. You are amazing. Thank you!

  • 90% of the men and women, if you can call them that, in Congress should be beheaded

  • This was a God damn oscar-worthy movie scene. Except it was real life.

  • I learned about this today, in a different country. There’s a picture of this speech in our history text books, and our teacher showed us this clip. I don’t know this man but during class I teared up

  • John Stewart has aged so much in the last few years

  • What an extraordinary man, what a talented, thoughtful, and passionate person. Thank you Jon stewart

  • John Stewart is a hero for 9-11. Maybe not a 1st responder hero, but a hero for 1st responders!

  • Irrespective of what you believe happened on September 11th, this is one of the great speeches of our time. And I say that without the 9 day wonder effect of a youtube video... you can come back to this time and time, and its words still resonate to the core.

  • Oh..my..fuck.

  • 2.9k dislikes!? WTF!? Are you mad he was loud?

  • Watching this video should be mandatory in high school American civics classes

  • THIS is how you protest and express anger at a situation without sounding like a fucking little child. Which is why he wasn’t immediately tuned out like most protestors are. Very well done, Jon.

  • I'll say it- death to Tribeca!

  • If individuals and businesses who scammed the system and claimed benefits of 9-11 funding for lost revenue gave just half of it back there would be no issue here. Fly fishing outfitters in Montana and Wyoming said" a lot of our clients in the financial industry were killed so we need 20 million dollars " and billionaire hedge fund managers said " well we lost our offices we need 20 million for new office space " and politicians who's districts are thousands of miles away with no ties to NYC said " we need 10 million for a 9-11 memorial on main street" not to mention thousands of frivolous cash grab lawsuits. Do a little digging and you'll find so much fraud and waste and opportunistic human garbage you'll be sick to your stomach. Middle Americans are the worst kind of people. They all hated us New Yorkers until they saw a horrible tragedy could get them free money.

  • Jon Stewart is the best

  • Powerful

  • The fact that 2.9 k disked this video’s is the reason that I have no faith in humanity

  • I really hope this speech takes off and is shown in history classes down the road. In addition to the content of the speech itself this is how you be angry, but get results. This speech moved me personally and I give many kudos to Jon Stewart for doing this. Great guy with a great message.

  • Am from India .. love Jon Stewart ... salute him for the cause he has taken ..

  • Freaking Jon Stewart. I adore you. More than that, thank you so much to everyone who worked on that day. I love you.

  • Ameirican is A JOKE.

    • America is not a joke, we are a melting pot of amazing people from all over the world. Our congress and government is a joke.

  • gotta love how goerge bush & his supperiors did this to American citizens & still people have no shred of logic to see how these evil human beings & their little underlings (congress etc...) will just not care & never assume consequences

  • Given the recent anniversary I was saying this exact same stuff that Stewart is w re to these HEROES! Shame on those in a position of power not taking complete care of these men and women. Go back and watch the footage of the day the towers went down and tell me you don’t agree! It’s fucking deplorable that any one of these people are struggling to have health care while keeping their heads above water financially. Gross!

  • Quite an acting job Stewart puts on here. "I can do without the insincere sincerity" -G.C.

  • Why is this even a debate? It should be a given. Fuck Congress!

  • “ by the way that’s your jobs anyway “ tell them Jon.

  • he didnt need to be that theathrecal...but he told the ugly truth

  • Did people get cancer from 9/11? wtf.. Can someone explain what that fund is about?

    • Ramon Gomide People inhaled numerous amounts of toxins that were there as a result of a collapsing building. Too many of those toxins together can, in fact cause cancer.

  • Today is 9/11/2019 as we remember the tragic day that happened years ago, we remember the first responders who gave their lives to save others but this year we should honor the person who fought for first responders to get the benefits they needed! June 11, 2019 never forget this speech.

  • Doesn’t he know that it was a false flag in the first place, so everyone who died and is sick now, is because of the same people brushing them off.

    • @Videos should we tell him his Koch brothers check will only be half since the other one died?

    • Soonthorn XKaLiBaR here we go
