The comedian, surrounded by a group of veterans on Capitol Hill, spoke to reporters after GOP senators pulled their support for a bill meant to help those suffering from exposure to Agent Orange in Vietnam and toxic pits full of burned military waste in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Though the bill, known as the Honoring our Pact Act, passed through the Senate earlier this year in a 84 to 14 vote, 25 Republicans who previously backed it withdrew their support during Wednesday’s follow-up vote.

“Ain’t this a bitch,” Stewart said. “America’s heroes who fought in our wars, outside sweating their asses off, with oxygen, battling all kinds of ailments, while these motherfuckers sit in the air conditioning, walled off from any of it.”

“These are men and women, mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers we just let stand outside in the heat when they can’t breathe,” he continued, gesturing at the veterans who appeared with him.

“Boy, they haven’t met a war they won’t sign up for, and they haven’t met a veteran they won’t screw over. What the fuck are we?” yelled Stewart, who currently hosts “The Problem with Jon Stewart” on Apple TV+.

One Republican who voted against the measure, Sen. Patrick Toomey (Pa.), said he was opposed to a “budgetary gimmick” that would allow $400 billion in additional spending and urged his colleagues to vote against the bill.

“Did you get the package?” Stewart said mockingly. “I think it has M&Ms in it, and some cookies and some moist towelettes. Honestly, I don’t know what to say. I’ve been coming down for 10 to 15 years ― I’m used to the hypocrisy.”
