On his show Thursday night, Jon Stewart of The Daily Show mocked Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney over his misleading advertisement about Jeep.

The ad, which was aired in the swing state Ohio, ominously warned that because of Obama, Chrysler was now owned by Italians “who are going to build Jeeps in China.”

“What? Sold Chrysler to Italians? We’re afraid of Italians now? If Obama wins, it’ll be the Pope deciding what you drive,” Stewart mockingly said, showing a picture of the Popemobile. “One day they’re ruining our car companies, the next day they’ll be kissing our daughters with their garlicky lips.”

Stewart pointed out that the claim Chrysler was moving American jobs to China was false.

“How out there is Mitt Romney? A car company — the people who convince you you need the undercoating — are coming after him for his dishonesty,” he quipped.
