Comedian and TV personality Jon Stewart ripped the Supreme Court in the wake of its decision to overturn Roe v. Wade and labeled it "the Fox News of justice."

Stewart made the remark on Thursday's episode of his podcast The Problem with Jon Stewart, according to a report.

The court ruled to overturn Roe due to its ideology instead of constitutional reasoning, the 59-year-old argued.

"In my mind, the idea that this was based in any kind of reasoned debate or philosophical education — the Supreme Court is now the Fox News of justice in my mind," Stewart said.

"It is a cynical pursuit in the same way that Fox News would come out with ‘we’re fair and balanced' under the patina of what would be a high-status pursuit to the betterment of society, journalism. They are a cynical political arm," he added.

Stewart cut into the way justices are confirmed and how sitting conservative justices dodged questions about Roe during their hearings.

“When you look at the ridiculous kabuki theater now of justice confirmation, where they can just go out there and just f***ing lie. Like, if this were about debate, then they would've understood what perjury meant," he argued. "But they are now the Fox News of justice. I mean, there is no consistency. States can't regulate guns, but they can regulate [uteruses], you know?"

Stewart then alluded to a quote from Martin Luther King Jr.

"I think the thing that struck me was, you know, 'the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.' Right? And I think we're all sort of steeped in that ethos. What you don't realize is there is a goodly amount of individuals who are trying to bend it back," Stewart said.

Mar-a-Lago smoking gun footage may mean DOJ may not have recovered all the classified material: legal experts

Donald Trump's legal predicament may have worsened, legal experts said, after a bombshell report published Saturday evening by The New York Times.

"The Justice Department also subpoenaed surveillance footage from Mar-a-Lago recorded over a 60-day period, including views from outside the storage room. According to a person briefed on the matter, the footage showed that, after one instance in which Justice Department officials were in contact with Mr. Trump’s team, boxes were moved in and out of the room," Maggie Haberman and Glenn Thrush reported. "That activity prompted concern among investigators about the handling of the material. It is not clear when precisely the footage was from during the lengthy back-and-forth between Justice Department officials and Mr. Trump’s advisers, or whether the subpoena to Mr. Trump seeking additional documents had already been issued.

Former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti noted the story and tweeted, "It sounds like DOJ has reason to be concerned that it *still* may not have recovered all of the classified material taken by Trump."

Watergate prosecutor Jill Wine-Banks said, "obviously that raises many questions since it was false. If true, FBI couldn't have left with 21 more boxes in August."

Law Prof. Rick Hasen wrote, "Do any of us doubt that someone besides Trump or someone in Trump's orbit who lied about possessing such documents and didn't give them back would already be held in custody pending further proceedings?"

Attorney Pam Keith said Attorney General Merrick Garland "still hasn’t detained or even questioned Trump. People are acting like that’s normal or justifiable. Given what we know, It’s INSANE!!"

"So what’s the excuse today for Trump not being arrested?" Keith asked. "I stand by my conclusion that Garland is too scared."

Bestselling author Don Winslow wanted Trump indicted long ago.

"What happened when Donald Trump was not indicted for 50 years? He became President of the United States and committed four more years of crimes," Winslow wrote. "When does it stop?"

Bill Kristol, who served as Vice President Dan Quayle's chief of staff said, "Whoa. Let me amplify. WHOA."
