At the ninth annual Stand Up For Heroes event in New York this Tuesday, Jon Stewart took a moment to address the idea of Donald Trump being a serious candidate.
“Are we really doing this Donald Trump thing?” asked Stewart from the stage. “We’re really doing that as a country?”
“When I was doing the program, we liked to make jokes about him, because he’s hilarious and easily mockable,” Stewart said, reports the Hollywood Reporter. “We would mock him with things such as, ‘He looks like a bewigged boiled ham,’ or something like that. So he would tweet in the middle of the night, ‘Jon Stewart’s real name is Leibowitz. He’s a Jew. Why does he run away from his heritage?’ You know, because that’s what I think most presidents would do. I remember Lincoln used to drunk tweet: ‘Hey, emancipate this, you fuck!'”
Stewart went on to let the Trump supporters know that they sound like assholes to the rest of us too.
“People are like, ‘I like Trump; he says what he thinks,'” he said. “What he thinks is stupid. That’s like if your friend is like, ‘I would like to fuck your mom.’ Why would you say that? … I don’t give a shit if you’re politically correct, just be correct, correct.”
