The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart Goes Off About the Eric Garner Choking Verdict


Jon Stewart went off on The Daily Show last night, when he discussed the choking death of Eric Garner in New York City.

Garner was killed by an NYPD cop who put him in an illegal chokehold. But just yesterday, a grand jury refused to indict that officer, even though the whole choking death was caught on video.

Stewart weighed in, saying that he was all out of jokes last night.

“If comedy is tragedy plus time, I need more f—king time,” he said.

“We are definitely not living in a post-racial society,” he added. “And I bet there are a lot of people out there wondering how much of a society we are living in at all.”
