Ah yes...more hypocritical jackwagon celebridiots. Today's feature is Jon Stewart, the guy who loves to poke fun at Mitt Romney and his wealth, painting him to be out of touch with normal people like you and me. Because, to folks like him on the left, rich people are eeeeeeeeeeevil.
Funny thing, though. Mr. Stewart - or Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz as his parents know him - is, well, RICH.
He then stated that Romney makes about $57,000 a day. Which is horrific, in the eyes of those who want very badly to also be making $57,000 a day.
On January 24, Stewart asked this question on The Daily Show:
“How in the world do you, Mitt Romney, justify making more in one day than the median American family makes in a year while paying the effective tax rate of the guy who has to scan your shoes in the airport?”
Not surprisingly, none of his adoring fans and fellow liberal lapdogs turned that question around on Mr. Stewart.
Here are some facts about HIM and HIS wealth:
Stewart's own income level brings him and his wife Tracey to approximately $41,000 a day,” a number derived from the comedian's annual salary of $15 million and an estimation of his net worth at $80 million.
While $80 million doesn’t yet put Stewart into the same wealth bracket as Romney, he is already on pace to be richer than the former Massachusetts governor when he reaches his age.
The article goes on to point out that the $41K isn't it. "Then, there are the HOUSES...three opulent mansions whose combined value is $12.8million...They were purchased through private trusts named after his pets to protect those assets from lawsuits, to diminish state tax liability, and to avoid public scrutiny.
And add the also well-documented fact that "in 2007 and 2008, the New York Department of State issued liens against the comedian and his wife for not paying their taxes in full, according to documents that refer to the Stewarts as “tax delinquents.”
Well, GO FIGURE. A hypocritical Democrat labeled as a "tax delinquent," trying to diminish his own tax liability, while at the same time pointing his finger at other folks for not paying enough taxes? Even when they DO?
But, just keep on eating up the notion that he's just one of the huddled, middle-class masses, you lobotomized drones. Because if you believe that, I have more ocean-front property to sell you here in Indiana. Seriously. I'll give you a good deal.
