What Jon Stewart is doing is heroic but what is truly awful is that 9/11 first responders should have never needed Jon Stewart to advocate for them, the idea that our country taking care of their illnesses and injuries is possibly dependent on him shaming Rand Paul is insane.

I so appreciate everything Jon Stewart is saying. Rand Paul is disgusting.

Jon Stewart is a national treasure. 👏👏

I also appreciate that Brett Baier allowed Stewart to speak uninterrupted for two minutes.

I love that he did this on Fox News

I miss Jon Stewart so much & wish he didn’t have to spend his time fighting for the American people the Republican Party has tried to leave behind. When you look at real patriots & people fighting for the causes that make this country amazing, Jon is up there in my book!

In the Battle of Stewart v Paul Jericurl Rand, my money is on the guy who got me through the Bush years over the guy who fought his neighbor over a hedge

And Rand just golfed with lardass last week..wonder what they talked about😳

$250k compensation for health care costs, loss of earnings and families left bereaved. Rand Paul received $580k for a few broken ribs from a neighbour he'd pissed off.
Well said, Jon. An abomination indeed.
Imagine being angrier at a junior Congresswoman than at Rand Paul after what he did this week to 9/11 responders.

Trump has set the stage for the worst economic devastation in our lifetimes. And THIS is where they draw the line?
This is typical #RandPaul He loves to hold up a critical vote to have the spotlight. He needs to be voted out of Congress. @RandPaul #FirstResponders

If it weren't for John Stewart Republicans would have killed the Zadroga bill the first time. This is sick @SenateGOP revenge, forcing these people, sick and dying, to beg from them every 5 yrs and it's sickeningly inhumane. @RandPaul has a special place waiting in hell for this.

Jon Stewart is a national treasure 🇺🇸 What a travesty the gop has turned this country into 👹
In reply to @kylegriffin1
Rand Paul is such a hypocrite. Vote for tax cuts that balloons the deficit, but then block this because the deficit is so high.
In reply to @kylegriffin1
Was Rand Paul a deficit hawk when he voted for the mega-tax giveaway? Return the Russian money and STOP blocking the election security legislation. Dan Coates, the DNI, Intelligence Community including the FBI has warned us - ignore?
In reply to @kylegriffin1
My friend @beatalley got put in Twitter jail for being mean to ❄️ Rand Paul yesterday. Rand is a reprehensible punk, it should surprise no one that his personality incites violence.
Kentucky ...
Rand Paul & Mitch McConnell’s state

Just took $200 million from Rusal.
A Russian aluminum comp. owned by Oleg V. Deripaska.
50 years ago, the moon landing brought everyone together.

You'd think that the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund would do the same today.

ICYMI Trump costed USA $1B pulling out of Turkey military equipment deal! Also: - $320M golfing trips - billions paid to subsidize farmers cuz of tariffs - wasted civil servant pay on do nothing @PressSec! #FirstResponders #JonStewart @SenSchumer pic.twitter.com/hvbt9mhTRi

Trump found a trillion to give tax breaks to the 1% Bush/Obama found tens of trillions to bail out the bankers and traders The first responders who went into the towers and led bankers and traders to safety? Crickets.
In a nutshell: @RandPaul hates first responders, spits on their heroism and sacrifice, but loves saddling hard-working Americans with trillions in national debt. In a way, he is even MORE of a coward that 5-time draft dodger @realDonaldTrump

Thank GOD for Jon..tell Rand the truth
In reply to @kylegriffin1
Thank you Jon Stewart. You are an inspiration for all Americans
In reply to @kylegriffin1
I still think that Jon Stewart leaving the daily show was the cause of trump being elected. Had such a way with words and speeches.
Jon Stewart is spot-on here. Every. Single. Word.
In reply to @kylegriffin1
And he went on fox so those motherfuckers see it. Good on you, Jon

Amen! Rand Paul is a wart on the a$$ of progress. #911FirstResponders
Rand Paul supported the #TaxScam

He doesn't care one bit about fiscal responsibility

He is a selfish person who will claim Never Forget in Sept for fake empathy

This is well worth the 2.11 minutes it will take to listen.
Not surprised by @RandPaul doing this, not one bit 👎🏻👎🏻
In reply to @kylegriffin1
"Rand Paul is a bottom feeder" - maybe that was meant in a good way?
In reply to @kylegriffin1
Good. Someone needs to smack down that POS.

- “Not blocking the 9/11 bill - simply asking for a vote on an amendment to offset the cost.” Also, there’s no looming deadline on this funding. The 9/11 healthcare fund has not yet run out of money, and people can still file claims. washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/the-ab… pic.twitter.com/g870fmVzVX
In reply to @RandPaul
@RandPaul does not support policemen & firefighters.
Thank you Jon Stewart for your clearly articulated statements that leave no question to the reality of what's going on in our country!
DISGRACEFUL. Karma is waiting on Rand Paul
In reply to @RandPaul
@RandPaul is a coward. Your libertarian platitudes are bullshit.

@RandPaul @SenMikeLee win the awards for the most horrible people on the planet (narrowly beating Trump for his KKK rally) #ShameOnSenPaul #ShameOnSenLee
In reply to @RandPaul
@RandPaul You should be ashamed of yourself. I hope one day you need a paramedic and they take their time getting to you. YOU ARE A DISGRACE to the first responders. HOW DARE YOU BLOCK THE FUND.
In reply to @RandPaul
In reply to @RandPaul
Yeah Rand Paul should slap himself. Jon Stewart should go after him more.
Don't tell me blue lives matter when you won't pay for 9/11 first responders
Republicans love to claim that they are the party of the military, LEO, first responders, etc but when it comes to putting pen to paper they’re full of complete shit...and their supporter routinely let them get away with it
In reply to @SenMikeLee
@SenMikeLee Just a reminder to retweet this at Mike Lee every day for the rest of his time in office. (And probably after.)
John Stewart, a good American, speaks the truth.
Wow! What a speech!
Shame on you @RandPaul and @realDonaldTrump for not supporting the 9/11 victim compensation fund. #NeverForget911
His Bowling Green office thinks it’s funny !! 270-782-8303
That this is happening is obscene! How can it keep happening to these amazing people??
