Jon Stewarts face as Mitch McConnell walks by him is priceless
Every so often a photograph captures a facial expression so priceless that you feel compelled to print it out, frame it, and do something really dramatic like sneak it into the Louvre. Today I am pleased to announce that I had one of those moments.The museum-worthy photograph to which I'm referring was taken on Tuesday afternoon by Roll Call photojournalist Bill Clark. He happened to be standing by the Ohio Clock Corridor in the Capitol at the absolute perfect time, and was able to capture the smug grin on Jon Stewart's face seconds after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell walked past. The photograph is especially powerful because it was taken hours before the Senate voted on HR 1327, the renewal of the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund Act.> .@McConnellPress walks past Jon Stewart at the Ohio Clock Corridor in the Capitol. The Senate will be voting later today on HR 1327: Never Forget the Heroes: Permanent Authorization of the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund Act. pic.twitter.com/bZ0FaOhTSl> > -- Bill Clark (@billclarkphotos) July 23, 2019SEE ALSO: Jon Stewart went on Fox News to slam Rand Paul for blocking 9/11 first responders billThe comedian and former The Daily Show host has been publicly supporting the reauthorization for months, as it would extend funding of health care for first responders through 2090. Back in June, Stewart made a special appearance on The Late Show to directly address Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and urge him to meet with first responders and get the bill passed as a standalone.Instead, since Stewart made an emotional speech before Congress the bill has gone up for a full House vote, and was blocked in the Senate by Republican senators, Rand Paul and Mike Lee. Stewart recently called Paul and Lee out on Fox News alongside first responder John Feal, and has yet to see action from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.With the fate of the bill scheduled to be decided on later today, the photograph made quite an impression on social media.> This picture does not need a caption. https://t.co/19jlDBhA4X> > -- Andrea Mitchell (@mitchellreports) July 23, 2019> Can he just run for public office already? I think we would all collectively breathe a sigh of relief. https://t.co/tyxF9Fh50m> > -- Taras U. (@TarasU_13) July 23, 2019> ... some pictures are worth more than 1,000 words. https://t.co/FW0PgkcdiO> > -- fake nick ramsey (@nick_ramsey) July 23, 2019> 2020 election mood https://t.co/NrKguyloC8> > -- Hillary Wasserman (@hillwass) July 23, 2019> Jon Stewart is giving me life. https://t.co/cQBT6Tu2KF> > -- Liz Allen (@LizMarieAllen) July 23, 2019Stewart's smile must have grown much larger since the photo was taken because the Senate passed the bill 97-2 on Tuesday afternoon. President Donald Trump is now expected to sign it. WATCH: Jon Stewart has a message to all Trump supporters.
