Must-see morning clip: Jon Stewart slams Washington's sexist culture

From sexual harassment in the Senate to catcalls on the street, sexism has been woven into the fabric of America. Thankfully, “The Daily Show” is doing its part to tear it out by ridiculing the politicians who commented repeatedly on Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s “porky” physical appearance and mocking people who condone catcalling on the street. Correspondent Jessica Williams put it best when she said, “since going to work isn’t a performance, we’re not looking for applause.”
