Jon Stewart went on FOX News Wednesday to blast Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul after he blocked funding for 9/11 first responders. "Pardon me if I’m not impressed in any way by Rand Paul’s fiscal responsibility virtue signaling,” a furious Stewart said, referencing President Trump's $1.5 billion tax-cut package, which Paul supported. “He is a guy who put us in hundreds of billions of dollars in debt...There are some things that they have no trouble putting on the credit card, but somehow when it comes to the 9/11 first responder community--the cops, the firefighters, the construction workers, the volunteers, the survivors--all of a sudden we’ve got to go through this.”
