He doesn’t know much about anything, including history.
We had only two bombs and the next one was a long way off.
They weren’t 100% sure that both of them would work.
Truman had no choice, but to end the loss of life on both sides.

Truman had no choice, but to end the loss of life on both sides. That kind of analytical thought is WAY beyond someone like Stewart. Remember, he makes his living by making a statement he believes to be ironic, then smirking and waiting for the audience to respond to the laughter cue. An intellectual lightweight.

It was revealed this evening that Jon thought the first one should have been dropped near the shore, to show its power.

That dumbass doesn’t realize Japan did not give up after the hit on Hiroshima. Dealing with historical idiots with a camera is getting pretty old.

From the response from “Hollywood Jon”, he hasn’t a clue about Truman. He’s trying to hide his gray hair from his paycheck. Good luck “Man for no Season!”.

Not only that, but the Japanese didn't surrender until the SECOND bomb was dropped, even after they got a full taste of the devastation of the first. So dropping a “demo” bomb in the ocean would certainly not have caused the japanese to surrender.

Jon Stewart is an ignorant ignoramus (is that redundant?).
