Jon Stewart Calls Donald Trump a 'Man-Baby'
"At this point I would vote for Mr. T over Donald Trump," Stewart said.
Jon Stewart has kept a low profile since leaving The Daily Show last summer. Now, the former late night host has emerged to discuss the presidential race and share his feelings about Donald Trump.

In an interview at the University of Chicago’s Institute of Politics, Stewart sat down with former Obama campaign strategist David Axelrod for his podcast, The Axe Files, where the comic let loose on the White House race.
Stewart rhetorically asked Axelrod: “I'm not a constitutional scholar, so I can't necessarily say, but are you eligible to run if you're a man-baby or a baby-man?”
In the 76-minute taping, Stewart said Trump has the physical attributes of a man but the “temperament and hands of a baby.”
Stewart questioned if Trump could be president because he is “thin-skinned.”
The comedian also discussed Trump’s likely opponent, Democrat Hillary Clinton. He called the former senator from New York “a very bright woman without the courage of her convictions ... That's 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 said.

Stewart also blamed the Democratic party for Trump’s meteoric rise as the GOP frontrunner.
"The door is open to an a**hole like Donald Trump because the Democrats haven't done enough to show people that government, that can be effective for people, can be efficient for people. And if you can't do that, then you've lost the right to make that change and someone's going to come in and demagogue you,” he said.
