President Obama denied the IRS scandal ever happened, leaving Jon Stewart in a state of shock.
The President blamed the Congress for passing a “crummy law” that didn’t give people guidance, and added that the IRS acted “poorly” and “stupidly.”
“Boy, you really do have only a year left,” Jon Stewart blurted out to the audience after expressing his stunned reaction.
As the Washington Post reported, the IRS itself confessed to targeting “tea party” and “patriot” groups in 2012.
IRS official Lois Lerner, whose emails and other computer files were destroyed in an obvious attempt to prevent auditors from finding incriminating evidence, said that the behavior of the IRS’ tax-exempt division was “absolutely inappropriate.”
