On Monday, Jon Stewart lit into the Obama administration for not fixing the problems in the Veterans Affairs Department health care system, even though he has known about the long waits since before taking office. On Thursday night’s Daily Show, Stewart reminded the Republicans now pouncing on the VA hospital scandal that their hands aren’t exactly clean on the matter, either.

We should be working to end sexual assault everywhere.
