At least one Daily Show correspondent has become sympathetic to the pleas of the Oregon militia that took over a federal wildlife refuge following a protest in support of two farmers sentenced for arson.
The militia has been mocked mercilessly online, and debates continue over whether its members are committing sedition (as well as what to call them), all while federal authorities try to avoid a confrontation. And perhaps the militia didn’t expect their standoff to last as long as it did, because they’ve now asked their supporters to send them food and supplies such as snacks, cold weather socks, snow camo, and energy drinks.
Jordan Klepper hears their call. Luckily for them, the standoff started just after Christmas, so he found a way to help the militia members and get rid of all of his terrible Christmas presents in one swoop. It’s not everything they asked for, but hey, it’s something.
