Donald Trump was so outraged by Jon Stewart’s comments earlier this week about Herman Cain that he has now accused the comedian of being racist.

In his latest Youtube video Tuesday afternoon, the birther-curious host of The Apprentice  had a lengthy rant about Stewart’s confusion over Cain’s response to the sexual harassment charges.”

“How come Jon Stewart gets away with a racist rant against Herman Cain?” Trump asked. “Nobody else could pull that off. Where is Rev. Jackson? Where is Rev. Sharpton? Where are all the critics where if someone else did it, it would be a disaster?”

Trump then cited the part where his outrage at Stewart was based on.

“He horribly stated in his imitation, ‘Have you ever kidnapped a baby other than the Lindbergh baby,’” Trump said. “Now if anybody watches this, they would say ‘Wow, that’s amazing.’ It’s not what he said, but the way he said it. The tone of his voice, the inflection, unbelievable. Anybody else, deep, deep trouble.”

Trump continued: “Imes got taken off the air, other people get taken off the air. And when he says it, people smile and say ‘I can’t believe he gets away with that.’”

“Where is sleepy eyed Chuck Todd? When somebody else says something, even a little bit non-politically correct, they go after him. But when Jon Stewart does a horrible, horrible thing to the African-American community, they leave him alone.”

And despite his actual appreciation for The Daily Show host, Trump would be disappointed if Stewart didn’t receive any punishment.

“I like Jon Stewart, I hope they don’t take him off the air,” he said. “But frankly, for this, they probably should, at least for a while. It’s terrible, it’s insulting to the African-American community. And I tell you what, he should apologize.”
