Jon Stewart played a montage of Rep. Aaron Schock's (R-Ill.) Instagram posts set to Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off," the song the Illinois Republican Congressman referenced in an interview when news first broke that his office decor was inspired by "Downton Abbey."
The "Shake It Off" montage includes photos of Schock rafting and on a ski lift. "While this may all be unethical, I gotta admit, it looks really fun to be this guy," Stewart said.
Schock's Instagram account was used by the Associated Press to track his use of donors' private aircraft to travel. "Traditionally, finding proof of a public figure's misdeeds requires a news organization to launch a massive investigative apparatus, deep off-the-record sourcing, FOIA requests, late-night dumpster diving. That's not how journalism works in the twenty-one-five," Stewart said.
