Jon Stewart Slams 'Politically Craven' Nancy Pelosi, Then Concludes Sketch With Four Words She Won't Like

Comedian Jon Stewart targeted House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) in a scathing segment Tuesday night, concluding with the apparent suggestion that she exit politics.

"Seriously, you should go," were the four words Stewart uttered at the end of his roughly 5 minute sketch.

The Comedy Central comedian directed his ire at Pelosi over her refusal to allow pregnant veteran Rep. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) to vote by proxy.

The House minority leader had contended permitting Duckworth to vote by proxy would set an unwanted precedent.

Stewart didn't buy the explanation, arguing in the sketch that throughout Pelosi's career she has had no problem fighting the establishment to pave new paths.

"You seemed okay with setting precedent when you became the first female House speaker," Stewart said.

In fact, as noted by Mediaite, he contended that by failing to allow Duckworth to vote, she's set a new precedent — that “a woman leader can be as every bit as politically craven as her counterparts.”
