Watch: George Lucas pitches "The Clinton Menace" to Fox News

On Thursday's Daily Show, George Lucas taped a special video to congratulate Fox News.

Well, sort of.

Lucas's bit was part of a larger segment on how the news network couldn't stop patting itself on the back for its Ferguson coverage and not "rushing" to judgment. As Jon Stewart has pointed out several times, this is a bit hilarious as Fox has rushed to judgment before (see: Benghazi or rants about killing Islamists).

Enter George Lucas — who lauds Fox by announcing that he will now only makes films that are "blindly uncritical of America"— films like American Exceptionalism GraffitiThe Empire Strikes Back, Justifiably; and Star Wars: The Clinton Menace. Lucas's deadpan delivery seals the deal, and so does the thought of a 2016 Hillary Clinton/Star Wars spinoff.
