Jon Stewart Questions Whether "Man-Baby" Donald Trump Is Eligible to Run for President
The former 'Daily Show' host also compared Hillary Clinton's lack of authenticity to Magic Johnson's short-lived '90s talk show.
Jon Stewart was back in the saddle Monday, talking politics and blasting Donald Trump while being interviewed by David Axelrod for his CNN-produced podcast, The Axe Files.
The former Daily Show host, in regular clothes and still sporting the beard he grew after signing off from his Comedy Central show in August, questioned whether the presumptive GOP presidential nominee could even be president because he is a "man-baby" during the more than hourlong sit-down at the University of Chicago.
"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 said to big laughs. "He has the physical countenance of a man and a baby's temperament and hands, " Stewart said.
The actor pointed out that he had a history of exchanging insults with the billionaire businessman, and it was his Comedy Central show that dubbed Trump "F—face von Clownstick."
"Character is destiny, and he is the most thin-skinned individual...," Stewart said of Trump.
The comedian also talked about Hillary Clinton and compared her campaign to Magic Johnson's ill-fated 1998 talk show, specifically the basketball player's lack of authenticity in front of the cameras.
"Magic Johnson was a charming individual, but he wasn't a talk show host and when you watched his show you could almost see Arsenio's advice to him in real-time rendering...," Stewart said. "That's not to say that [Hillary] is not preferable to Donald Trump, because at this point I would vote for Mr. T over Donald Trump."
