As America tries to navigate this hellish election season without the guidance and humor of political satirist Jon Stewart, many Americans find themselves wanting to cry a lot more than they want to laugh. Well, thankfully the former host of The Daily Show did an interview with David Axelrod for "The Axe Files" to skewer Donald Trump and his tiny hands. It will ease your soul, if only for an hour or so.
"I’m not a constitutional scholar, so I can’t necessarily say, but are you eligible to run if you are a man-baby, or a baby-man?" asks Stewart. Even though he has been off the air for over a year, he has definitely not lost his edge. He went on to add, "He has the physical countenance of a man and a baby’s temperament and hands."
Yep, sounds like Stewart. He is back, bearded, and this election has provided him with enough joke fuel for 10 more seasons of The Daily Show. Even though Stewart went in on Trump, he is not too keen on Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton, either. When Axelrod first mentioned her name in the interview, Stewart simply replied with, "who?"
Stewart said that Clinton was “a very bright woman without the courage of her convictions, because I'm not even sure what they are.” He went on to say, "That is not to say that she is not preferable to Donald Trump because, at this point, I would vote for Mr. T over Donald Trump."
Stewart definitely didn't let Democrats off the hook during his epic Trump take-down. In fact, he thinks that "The Trump Train" (which sounds like something you would ride through a haunted house) is a direct result of the Dems.
The door is open to an asshole like Donald Trump because the Democrats haven’t done enough to show people that government, that can be effective for people, can be efficient for people. If you can’t do that, then you’ve lost the right to make that change and someone’s going to come in and demagogue you.
Lead us, Jon! Come back to TV, run for president, hold our hands as we enter the voting booths!
Here is the entire hour-long interview if you want more scathing Trump hate.
