The Daily Showdown

The Daily Show laughs over the lazy millennials who've 'Trojan horsed' ISIS

Millennials are reputed to be lazy, feckless, spoiled, and inexorably tied to their gadgets. They are also the largest group of Westerners to join Islamic State, heavily recruited by ISIS through action-packed videos and social media. Suckers, said Jon Stewart on Thursday night's Daily Show. "Millennials have been Trojan-horsed into the War on Terror," he explained. "Wait until these brutal fundamentalists of ISIS get a taste of the entitlement generation."

It isn't going well, leading Stewart to pronounce: "Listen, we just beat ISIS, and we didn't even realize it." His video evidence is pretty funny, but his final joke maybe cuts a little too close to the truth. --Peter Weber
