Judge Napolitano Calls out Stewart’s Hypocrisy on ‘Daily Show’

Lefty host doesn't get away with this one.

Fox News’ Senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano appeared on the Daily Show Dec. 1 and let loose on Stewart with an unexpected zinger that took the liberal talk show host a moment to recover.

In a discussion revolving around the role of government and freedom, Stewart suggested that Napolitano was advocating America scraps the capitalist system. For that fumble, Napolitano responded with a pointed remark that was sure to sting a little bit. 

STEWART: But if we are the best in this system, so that would be like saying, if I may, let’s get rid of capitalism, even though it’s the best economic system-”

NAPOLITANO: You don’t believe that for a minute. That we should get rid of capitalism. You’re the richest guy in television!” 

Like comedian Russell Brand, liberals who rally about economic injustice and how evil corporations are, really don’t like when they are called out for the capitalist system working in their favor to make them one of those evil, rich guys.
