Jon Stewart rips media for immediately discussing Caitlyn Jenner’s ‘comparative f*ckability’
The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart was pleasantly surprised by the mostly positive response by the normally “awful” media to the Caitlyn Jenner’s coming out party on the cover of Vanity Fair.
But his joy was tempered by commentators immediately treating Jenner like “every other woman” by commenting on her “comparative f*ckability.”
Sharing a a seemingly endless series of clips of announcers commenting on Jenner’s “hotness,” Stewart noted that previous discussions about Bruce Jenner focused on athleticism.
“Caitlyn, when you were a man we could talk about your athleticism, your business acumen,” he said. “Now you’re a woman, and your looks are the only thing we care about. Which brings us to phase two of your transition: your “comparative f*ckability.”
With commenters noting Jenner’s resemblance to actress Jessica Lange, and another asking if Caitlyn had a better body that Kim Kardashian, Stewart was appalled.
“Look,” Stewart said, mocking the tone of talking heads. “We want to give a compliment here. We just need to make sure another woman gets taken down a peg in the process. It’s how we maintain the balance.”
