The Daily Show Roasts Leland Yee and Shrimp Boy

Mockable political scandals aren’t just for Chicago and New Jersey bridges anymore! California State Senator Leland Yee was recently indicted and arrested on charges of public corruption in a case that involves suspected Chinatown gang leader Raymond “Shrimp Boy” Chow. Watch as Jon Stewart becomes very afraid of shrimp cocktails and attempts to wrap his mind around an advocate for gun control getting busted for gun trafficking (talk of Yee and Shrimp Boy starts around the 3:16 mark).

    Well, hell may have in fact frozen over if the Daily show is nailing the liberals.

      Are you high?? The show skewered the heck out of progressive (“libberral”, to you) SF Supervisor Eric Mar (in a piece much longer than this leland yee one).

      My cousin is an ultra-right wing repub, and the emails she forwards to me from right wing ‘news’ outlets are typically along the lines of the federal govt being inept or welfare check people driving cadillacs. In other words, really dumb low-brow stuff you guys gobble up like bite size candy bars.

        Nope but you are. It takes allot for them to “skewer” any leftwinger. Only in the most rare situations do they ever take on stuff like this. It is only when they can’t find a rightwinger to take on.
        As for “gobbling” anything up, you have no clue about me or my political affiliations. Making knee jerk responses like this one only makes you look like an idiot.

        • Fay Nissenbaum

          When you write words about “nailing the liberals”, you certainly are leaving clues about your political beliefs.

          • Cantbelieveyouthinkthis

            Really? So what are my political beliefs then Einstein? Careful now, I live in California as a hint.

  • Fay Nissenbaum

    I love Jon Stewart’s segments, but truth be told, this one was a weak effort from the creative team .

  • OuttaYourMindTrib

    If he’s guilty, he should be publicly hanged. Leland is a disgrace. Since he’ll most likely die in prison, let’s hope he at least gets a cell with Bubba so Bubba can have a new wife!
