“The Daily Show’s” Jon Stewart is getting ready for a showdown debate with FOX News pundit Bill O’Reilly — and suffice to say that he won’t be looking to President Barack Obama’s performance in Wednesday night’s debate for any pointers.
“Here’s what I thought Lara, and I say this in all respect. As Americans, I think we can all be very satisfied in knowing that no matter what happens in this election, we’re going to have an incredibly good-looking president,” he joked with Lara Spencer on the “Today” show. “That was some beefcake up there last night.”
Stewart thought that Obama came to the debates underprepared. “I’m sure President Obama now realizes, ‘Oh, preseason’s over. I should
probably familiarize myself with my presidency, and learn some of the
various numbers and things that go along with it,” he said, not mincing words. “I thought he had a very difficult night and I’m concerned that he may not reelect us. He may walk away.”
“It wasn’t so much [Obama’s] body language as the mouth language that he was using,” he continued. “I used to think the pauses, he was just trying to think of smaller words for the little brains to figure out what he was saying, but this time I think the pauses were like ‘I like food. My children are nice.’ He didn’t seem as present.”
