  1. I still can't believe at the minimum every kid that ran up those beaches in Normandy ever had to pay taxes again if they survived. Not many 19 yr old kids would do that today, how would you keep your phone dry? These 911 responders should get everything they need

  2. I'm Indonesian. And I too am angry at your congress.

    You all are a great people, and so are you, Jon!

  3. Currently, the house and Senate approve of the 911 bill but guess who held it up once more? Republicans, Rand paul and Mike Lee. Just wanted to remind people that it's always Republicans avoiding to help first responders. Always has been and will be.

  4. I betcha if any of the corporate dems ran for congress, the same exact thing would happen. They'd say they would focus on the issue, but then they wouldn't follow through with it, since they'd be too focused on trump and russia. It's the power of #moneylaundering, folks. Both corporate democrat and Republican politicians are both held responsible for their actions.

  5. Damn….insane how awesome jon is

  6. He needs to run for president cause he is amazing

  7. I feel like Jon Stewart wants to throw the pen at them

  8. You Mr Alzarus? Spelled wrong… YOU HAVE A EXPRESS TICKET TO HEAVEN!!!!! Wish I could meet you!!!! GOD BLESS!!!

  9. Wow, i'm speachles, I didn't know these men and woman are forgotten by the authorities, I thought they were treated like the heroes they are. shame on american leadership and shame on the so called good presidents you had since then, they could have done something about it.
    my heart is with you all, respect.

  10. have the citizens gotten their heads around the fact that their government did this and that country is an embarrassment to the world.

  11. Real man fights for whats right, you have my respect. Jon

  12. bravo!!!! wheres president bone spurs, the phony flag hugger, and moron mitch,? making these heroes beg for assistance. they couldnt care less about these people. how much have we paid for trump to PLAY golf ?? as of may 2019 102 million dollars

  13. I'm not an american, but his speech kinda gets to me.

    Hope everything goes well for the heroes.

  14. so, George Carlin was right.. Jon Stewart does have a bright future. respect.

  15. 18 years later and Israelis are still dancing

  16. The government needs the witnesses dead. #Building7.

  17. fair play to john a man among men

  18. For anyone who disliked this, please reply and explain why.

    Now a Jew is pretending to help the victims of 911, BUT he uses the opportunity to blame the ARABS for doing 911.
    Now that's chutzpah!

  20. I'm not an American but a huge Jon Stewart fan since 2003. For all of you "patriots" over there ask yourselves why Mitch McConnell is killing the 9/11 first responders legislation as soon as it lands in US Senate. He's been doing this since 2010.
