During Thursday night’s ‘Daily Show,” Jon Stewart took on the “Monsters of Money” — the business and financial leaders who flew to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, in a fleet of 1,700 private jets to discuss topics such as climate change.
“As in… can you believe how much climate we’ve changed?” Stewart wondered aloud.
The summit, he said, is also “a chance for the powerful to reflect on how the world has changed since the devastating financial collapse that many of them caused and/or profited from.”
Stewart then went after some of the biggest names in business, including JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon and AIG’s Steve Miller, both of whom have complained about the new regulations put in place since the 2008 financial crisis.
But Stewart saved the best for last, blasting MetLife for suing the government over it’s “too big to fail” status.
Check out the clip above to see Stewart use the insurance company’s own marketing materials to prove that they are, in fact, every bit as big as the government says they are.
