29. Stewart points out Dick Cheney’s irony

Republicans had a field day when President Obama took part in that nuclear deal with Iran in 2015, ripping the nation’s leader apart in every media appearance they could. Perhaps one of his most vocal critics during this time was former vice president Dick Cheney, who had some rather interesting things to say about the situation.

Cheney insinuated that this deal would spell imminent doom for whomever was next to take the reins from Obama and serve in the Oval Office. The controversial politician even told reporters, “I can’t think of a more terrible burden to leave the next president than what Obama is creating here.”

In case you forgot, Dick Cheney was George W. Bush’s vice president.

That irony was not lost on Stewart, who gave Cheney a roasting over this peculiar statement. On The Daily Show, Stewart appeared next to a picture of Cheney and Bush, which gradually only got bigger as he dished the following statement:

“Really? You can’t think of an administration that left a more terrible burden? Think hard… no wait. If I can ask you, think harder. Maybe you need a visual aid. Can you think of an administration that left… ?”
