Comedian says he's got no jokes after Charleston church shooting

Jon Stewart opens his monologue on Thursday with no jokes but thought-provoking commentary on the Charleston church shooting.

Comedian Jon Stewart, host of The Daily Show on Comedy Central, said he had no jokes to tell and he did not feel funny after Thursday after looking at news reports about the deadly shooting that took place Wednesday at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston during which nine people were slain during a Bible study.

The comedian usually opens his show with an irreverent take on the day's events, but on this show, he instead offered about four minutes of insightful commentary on race and violence.

“What blows my mind is the disparity of response between when we think people that are foreign are going to kill us, and us killing ourselves,” he said.
