Hysterical: Jon Stewart on Dov Hikind's Purim costume

As many of you know, there is a custom on Purim to dress up in costume. Here in Israel, people dress up in appropriate costumes, like the ones below, and no one makes a big deal out of it. For an example, see below:

Of course, in America, where they actually know what that costume signifies, no one would wear a Fez (here, everyone wears them). Here's an example from America:

And with that we come to New York Assemblyman Dov Hikind. Hikind, the man that Chuckie Schumer doesn't want to be, dressed up in a costume that would not have made anyone bat an eyelash in Israel: He colored his face black (that's him in the middle).

That was too much for the politically correct New York City media and for some in the black community in New York who are looking for an excuse to seethe.

But Jon Stewart has the answer. Let's go to the videotape (Hat Tip: Debbie R).

I'm not usually a big Jon Stewart fan, but he's spot-on this time. The criticism of Hikind is nonsense.
