Jon Stewart Has A Question For Rand Paul

"'What The Fuck Are You Talking About?'

Jon Stewart began "The Daily Show" on Thursday night with an apology for saying onWednesday night's show that no one involved in the death of Eric Garner had been indicted.

As it turns out, the person who recorded the video of Garner being choked was indictedon weapons charges.

"They got the shooter... of the video," Stewart said. "Let that be a lesson to you kids out there. Photographing crime does not pay."

Some quickly moved to blame Garner's death by choking at the hands of New York City police officer Daniel Pantaleo on just about anything other than the officer's chokehold.

Fox News host Sean Hannity argued that the chokehold wasn't really a chokehold. Rep. Pete King (R-N.Y.) blamed Garner's size and health. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) evenblamed cigarette taxes.

"What the fuck are you talking about?" Stewart asked after hearing Paul's remarks. "Well I guess now we know what it takes for a senator from Kentucky to admit cigarettes can kill."
