Last night on the “Daily Show,” Jon Stewart took a pretty hard shot at our political system for its rampant sexism, and focused on many media pundits who are now wondering if Hillary Clinton won’t run for president now that her daughter, Chelsea, is pregnant.
After one ABC clip is shown, wondering if “it’s sexist to ask?” Stewart delivers like only he can.
“No, no, no … of course it’s not sexist, even though it’s a question that has never, ever been posed to a male candidate, ever,” Stewart says. “For god sakes, Mitt Romney has like a litter of grandchildren. Mitt Romney has for god’s sakes, if I’m not mistaken, Mitt Romney has like a grandchild petting zoo. The guy added three grandchildren while he was campaigning.
“He is the only candidate in history whose electoral college total is less than the number of chairs he has to put out at Thanksgiving.”
But Stewart goes on to say that the grandchildren question never came up during the last election.
And yes, we’re all looking past the fact that William Howard Taft was pregnant when he ran (at least according to Stewart).
There’s also a second part to Stewart’s rant.
And it makes John Boehner cry — which may be the best video of a man crying … ever.
We’re not sure what’s better. The GIF or the full video.
