Jon Stewart Also Slammed Hillary Clinton, Calls Her ‘Inauthentic,’ Compares Her To ‘Weird Video Game Lag’
If you do a simple Google News Search of “Jon Stewart” you will see a plethora of stories of the former The Daily Show host’s recent take down of Donald Trump where he called the presumptive Republican presidential candidate a “man-baby,” which was covered on this very site here.
However, from the exact same Jon Stewart interview with ex-Obama adviser David Axelrod from Monday, Stewart also slammed Hillary Clinton. Stewart compared Hillary’s “inauthenticity” to the “weird lag” of playing a PC game on a Mac computer.
“It’s like when you have a Mac and you want to play a Microsoft game on it and there’s that weird lag. That’s Hillary Clinton,” Stewart said during the interview at the University of Chicago’s Institute of Politics.
“What gives me hope in that is that there is a delay, which means she is somehow fighting something,” he continued. “I’ve seen politicians render their inauthenticity in real time, and that’s where you go, ‘That is a sociopath.'”
Stewart also compared the former secretary of state to the abysmal and failed talk show by Magic Johnson. “Magic Johnson was a charming individual, but he wasn’t a talk-show host,” he said on the The Axe Files show. “And when you watched his show, you could almost see Arsenio [Hall]’s advice to him in real time rendering.”
“It never seemed authentic and real to his personality,” he continued. “It seemed like he was wearing an outfit designed by someone else for someone else to be someone else.”
Stewart did he believes Hillary “to be a very bright woman without the courage of her convictions.” He added, “I’m even not sure what they are.”
But he did say that he would vote for Hillary over Trump. “Because at this point, I would vote for Mr. T over Donald Trump,” Stewart said.
Stewart’s remarks about Hillary start around the 26:30 mark.
