Jon Stewart Mocks Fox News On ‘The Daily Show’ For Making The Eclipse About Politics & Immigration

Jon Stewart called out Fox News on The Daily Show for their eclipse coverage with an immigration angle.

As North America prepared to witness the solar eclipse, Fox News warned viewers of the threat to the southern border that this represented.

“We are told that officials are bracing for higher traffic than usual and that means a real opportunity for smugglers and cartels and migrants to come right in,” Bill Hemmer said on the cable network after co-host Dana Perino said the eclipse would last about four minutes.

Stewart quipped, “Or they could just wait til nighttime.”

The Comedy Central host then questioned if there was anything Fox News couldn’t tie to immigration, mocking the anchors and saying, “This year’s cicada infestation provides perfect cover for Venezuelans.”

Later on in the show, Stewart had Christiane Amanpour as a guest who called the eclipse “beautiful.”

Stewart told Amanpour, “The world is ending,” to which the CNN anchor said, “That’s why the eclipse was so beautiful today. It looked like it was ending, and yet it brought so many people together in this incredibly divided country. Honestly, it was very emotional.”

The late-night show host also had some hits for Marjorie Taylor Green after calling the earthquake in NYC and the eclipse “God sending American strong signs to tell us to repent.”

“How do you know that is what God meant?” Stewart questioned. “Why would God be so obtuse? Why would he do that? Or she? Why would she? Or how crazy it would be if God insisted on they/them?”

Stewart then mocked Green’s theory about God sending signs and how he would’ve come up with that idea.
