Jon Stewart: Weiner's a Guy with Self-Control Issues Who Never Should Have Run for Mayor
Jon Stewart Delivers One Last Epic Annihilation of Anthony Weiner (Mediaite)
Jon Stewart has a long history with Anthony Weiner. Their decades-old friendship has always made it a bit awkward when Weiner does something so stupid that Stewart has no choice but to brutally mock him on The Daily Show. With the New York Mayoral Primary just days away, Stewart took the opportunity to produce one (presumably) final take down of Weiner, who may have finally hit rock bottom.
He landed on the confrontation with a Jewish voter than may just have been the final nail in campaign’s coffin.
When Stewart discovered that Weiner was actually arguing with the man because he had made a crude comment about his wife, Huma Abedin, the host had a revelation. “What if everything Anthony Weiner has done actually makes sense if you look at it a larger context?” he wondered. “What if there for each of these incidents, one piece of information that makes each incident okay?”
After testing out his theory, Stewart concluded, “Nah, he’s just a guy with self-control issues who never should have run for mayor.”
