Last night, Jon Stewart shared a promo for a very special Daily Show segment, ostensibly airing tonight, on 9/13 (unless this too is a joke). Called simply, "The Daily Show Remembers 9/13/2001: Remembering The Day We Forgot The Lessons Of The Day We Swore We Would Always Remember," the segment promises to look back on all the low points of 9/11 exploitation, which began two days after the attacks, with Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson blaming pagans, abortionists, feminists, gays, the ACLU and others for "helping" 9/11 happen.
Here's the "preview":
Yes, Glenn Beck actually said, "You know, it took me about a year to start hating 9/11 victims' families." That unbelievable soundbite is followed by Wyatt Cenac, who sardonically recalls, in the vein of those remembering the first moments of the planes hitting the Twin Towers, "I'll never forget where I was when I heard Ann Coulter call the 9/11 widows witches and harpies. The first time she said it, I thought it was an accident. But then she said it a second time, and I realized, 'Oh my God, the 9/11 widows are under attack.' " And yet, over a decade later, Ann Coulter still hasn't been brought to justice! (A bungled pie attack during the Bush administration left her shaken but barely scathed.)
