Some people when they make a mistake turnaround and admit the mistake and move on. But, when Jon Stewart makes a mistake and someone calls it to his attention, he makes it worse by taking his mistake out on others by getting emotional and bent out of shape. Instead of lashing out at Brian Kilmeade, Jon should have turned the other cheek and asked Kilmeade – how many times do you want me to apologize. But, some people just think they are perfect and when they make a mistake they are so mad at themselves they will strike out at the next person who calls it to their attention. Jon Stewart is one of those people who makes it worse rather than apologizing and moving on.
His mistake of piling on the Police to begin with was uncalled for since he has a platform that could be used for good. Even after attacking Kilmeade, his statement, “You can truly grieve for every officer who’s been lost in the line of duty in this country and “still be troubled by cases of Police over reach.” In the end Stewart did a double-flip – doubled back and erased the apology and slap the Police in the face again. Shame, shame!
Jon Stewart apologized Monday night for getting certain facts wrong during a recent segment on police injustice and the killing of black victims.
Last week, “The Daily Show” host incorrectly stated that police in California’s San Bernardino County had shot and killed black victim Dante Parker, when in fact, he was hit multiple times with a taser. San Bernardino County District Attorney Michael Ramos called out Stewart for the false claim in a video posted to YouTube, saying that the comedy host had his facts “all wrong.”
Stewart became the target of attacks by several Fox News hosts over the error, including “Fox & Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade, who mocked Stewart for his sloppy fact-checking. Stewart acknowledged fault and apologized Monday night, adding that the reason he hates making such mistakes is that it invites others to focus on his mistake rather than the issue at hand.
So while Stewart apologized to viewers, he was not apologizing to anyone on Fox News:
“F— you, Brian,” Stewart said to Kilmeade. “F— you.”
“And by the way, jackass,” he continued. “You can truly grieve for every officer who’s been lost in the line of duty in this country and still be troubled by cases of police overreach.”
Some grown men never grow up! Jon, no one is perfect and that includes you! Maybe one day Kilmeade will err and you can return the favor!
