What’s the absolute dumbest, most “American" news story of 2015 so far? The good news is you don’t have to think about it (after all, thinking’s not very “American” of you!) because The Daily Show has got you covered with the 2015 ‘Mercun Awards. Judges Jessica Williams and Samantha Bee introduce three top contenders, each including some kind of mix of firearms misfiring, public prayer, and overall stupidity. The only thing more American than the winner is the series of collaged images, escalating in terms of grossness and Americana, that Williams and Bee offer as trophies.
