While Seth Meyers and Samantha Bee have been called the heirs to Stewart and new Daily Show host Trevor Noah has failed to meet unrealistic expectations, the late-night crowd has largely fallen short in the late-night political comedy department. In the face of nastier-than-usual politics and the rise of Donald Trump, fans have continued to mourn Stewart’s exit at a time when people have never needed him more.
Stewart delivered with an epic Trump rant on Monday when he joined former Obama adviser David Axelrod on the Axe Files podcast in Chicago. If this were The Daily Show, it probably would’ve been a segment full of contradictory clips, terrible impressions, graphics, and downright mocking of both Trump and the media. (Meyers and John Oliver have both done this to little real-life effect.) But it’s not, so instead we just have Stewart getting riled up—but we’ve sure missed that.
“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 asked. “He has the physical countenance of a man and a baby’s temperament and hands.”
Trump may have received the most direct fire—Stewart pointed out that the businessman has very thin skin—but the comedian also criticized the state of both the Republican and Democratic parties, the politician–media relationship, and Hillary Clinton.
Stewart said that Clinton was “a very bright woman without the courage of her convictions, because I’m not even sure what they are.”
“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,” he added.
