Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart downplayed his role as a factor in politics Thursday night, saying the jokes he doles out at the expense of the Obama administration aren’t “some kind of tipping point for action.”
Stewart, known for knocking Republicans more often than Democrats, was widely cited among media types in October for a segment he did mocking Healthcare.gov, the website that’s supposed to help Americans purchase health insurance.
“The jokes we do on this program seem to accomplish very little,” Stewart said on his show Thursday. “Most of the stuff we complain about never changes.”
