The night before, Jon Stewart began his show discussing the grand jury decision in the Eric Garner case, saying, "I honestly don't know what to say. If comedy is tragedy plus time, I need more (expletive) time."
The district attorney in San Bernandino County, Mike Ramos, took issue with a previous Stewart segment that aired Monday, saying “they had their facts all wrong."
Stewart expressed more incredulity at the aftermath of the case on Thursday, especially Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul's commentary about how cigarette taxes were responsible for what happened.
Correction: A previous version of this post said that Mike Ramos objected to a Daily Show clip from Wednesday. The segment aired on Monday.
