Last night on The Daily Show, host Jon Stewart was rendered nearly speechless by Pakistani Nobel Peace Prize nominee, Malala Yousafzai. Many will recall that Malala, at the tender age of 15, was shot in the head by the Taliban for speaking out on the need for educating women in her country.
In particular, the portion of the interview where Malala discusses learning of her targeting by the Taliban for her stance. She said that her initial thought were she to be accosted by the Taliban would be to hit them with her shoe. After a moment of laughter (she is quite funny by the way), she went on to say that she would explain her position to the Taliban and ask them if they would not want the same for their children, and closed by saying, “now do what you want.”
Stewart’s physical response is priceless.
