On Wednesday night, Jon Stewart took aim the freshman senator from North Carolina, Thom Tillis. In response to a question about government regulation and restaurant worker hand washing at a local Starbucks, Sen.r Tillis, a staunch free-market conservative, recently stated:
"I don’t have any problem with Starbucks if they choose to opt out of this policy as long as they post a sign that says, ‘We don’t require our employees to wash their hands after they use the restroom.’ The market will take care of that."
Naturally, Stewart had a field day with this comment. "You do realize that's a regulation, too, right?" Stewart said of making restaurants post a sign saying that they don't enforce hand-washing.
"That's not getting rid of regulation," Stewart continued. "That just makes you an inconsistent ideologue with a light fecal dusting in your latte."
