Jon Stewart Taunts Sen. Katie Britt With 1 Burning Question About Her Biden Speech [View all]

“The Daily Show” host Jon Stewart on Monday highlighted one of the weirder moments from Sen. Katie Britt’s (R-Ala.) widely mocked rebuttal to President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address that he felt “didn’t get as much attention” as it should have done.

“Who smiles when they say the line ‘steeped in the blood of patriots’?” he asked.

Stewart suggested it was “just one more entry in the Republican mythology that they are the inheritors of the American revolutionary tradition, that they somehow are more American-y than non-Republican Americans.”

The comedian aired one supercut of Republicans claiming they are “real Americans” and then another montage of conservatives declaring their love for the Constitution.
