Former Daily Show host Jon Stewart chimed in on the presidential election Monday, calling Donald Trump a “man-baby” and jokingly questioning the presumptive Republican nominee’s eligibility to be president.
“I would vote for Mr. T. over Donald Trump,” the liberal comedian quipped during an appearance at the University of Chicago’s Institute of Politics, according to People.
“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?” Stewart joked. “I’m not here to be politically incorrect, if they’re referred to as man-baby Americans. But he is a man-baby. He has the physical countenance of a man and a baby’s temperament and hands.”
“I’m not going to be on television anymore,” Stewart said when pressed by University of Chicago’s Institute of Politics director and former adviser to President Obama, David Axelrod.
As Breitbart News previously reported, Jon Stewart took several jabs at Trump while hosting a ceremony in celebration of the 75th anniversary of the United Service Organizations last weekend.
“Trump’s going to keep you busy when he’s the commander-in-chief,” Stewart told the room full of military men and women.
During Stewart’s last interview with Hillary Clinton, the liberal comedian joked about how being president would be “pretty inconvenient” for the former secretary of state. However, Stewart warned Monday that Clinton could be in “big trouble” if she can’t convince voters of her “authenticity.”
Asked if he’ll play a political role in this year’s election, Stewart wryly responded: “I’ll vote.”
