VIDEO: "You're a fucking troll... These people have suffered for 15 years" - Jon Stewart gets into heated conversation with Jack Posobiec over PACT Act last year

Jon Stewart gets into heated conversation with Jack Posobiec over PACT Act last year.

A heated exchange between Jon Stewart and Jack Posobiec outside the Capitol is drawing further attention to the divide over a bill to help military veterans injured by toxic burn pits.

Stewart was in Washington, D.C. to continue his support of the PACT Act, which would extend medical benefits to vets who’ve been left injured or disabled, when he crossed paths with Posobiec, who’s best known for promoting the QAnon “Pizzagate” conspiracy theory.

In a video posted to Twitter by Benny Johnson of Newsmax, Stewart shouts at Posobiec and calls him a “f—ing troll,” but the two eventually settle their differences enough to come together to endorse the bill, which was just defeated in a re-vote in the Senate.

Today, President Joe Biden signed into law the Sergeant First Class Heath Robinson Honoring Our Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics (PACT) Act of 2022, which will deliver comprehensive benefits to all generations of veterans who have suffered from exposure to burn pits or other toxic substances, for the first time in our nation’s history. The legislation is named in honor of Heath Robinson, a Central Ohio veteran who deployed to Kosovo and Iraq with the Ohio National Guard and passed away in 2020 from cancer after exposure to burn pits during his military service. U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) successfully fought to get this legislation through the Senate and to the president’s desk, in the face of Republican obstruction.

Brown has been a leading voice in advocating for the passage of this legislation. Recently, while in Ohio, he joined veterans and their families who have been harmed by exposure to toxic burn pits to discuss this bill.

Brown recently joined SFC Robinson’s family to urge his Senate colleagues to keep their promise to our veterans and pass the PACT Act. In March, Brown welcomed Heath’s widow Danielle Robinson to Washington D.C. for President Biden’s first State of the Union Address. Robinson was invited to be the guest of First Lady Dr. Jill Biden.
