The comments made by Sanchez come after Stewart made quite a few jokes about Sanchez, about more than 20 times in the last five years. Sanchez had a comment about this, saying “You watch yourself on his show every day and all they ever do is call you stupid.”

Sanchez, a Cuban- American, seems to have a problem with a lot of people from many areas, and he feels discriminated against by many people during his television career. According to Sanchez, “a lot of elite Northeast establishment liberals” viewed him as someone “who belongs in the second tier and not the top tier.”

“Yeah. Yeah. Very powerless people.” He let out a high-pitched laugh.

“Everybody that runs CNN is a lot like Stewart,” Mr. Sanchez said. “And a lot of people who run all the other networks are a lot like Stewart. And to imply that somehow they — the people in this country who are Jewish — are an oppressed minority? Yeah.”
