The Daily Show host Jon Stewart blasted Republican Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham Wednesday night, peeling back the hypocrisy of their heated opposition to United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice.

“Here’s the thing — these two don’t get to be the ones who get to be self-righteously upset about this,” Stewart declared. “Remember these two from a decade ago?”
