Intrigued by Herman Cain facing sexual allegations, Jon Stewart tried to find some excuse for the new Republican presidential front runner Monday evening.
“In Herman Cain’s defense, there is very little in the pizza world that is not sexually suggestive,” Stewart said. “Hey, hey, you want sausage on your pie? Hey, hey, you want me to stuff your crush? I told you, I guarantee, it will come in 30 minutes or less.”
Stewart’s excuse-making wasn’t helped by Cain’s own defense on Fox News earlier that day, when he wouldn’t even say whether there were settlements paid to his accusers.
“You can’t just go well, other than that, no,” Stewart said. “That would be like, ‘Have you ever kidnapped a baby? Well other than the Lindbergh boy, no.'”
Stewart also considered the ways Rick Perry might be able to take advantage of Cain’s scandal, but he thought differently after a clip from the Texas governor’s bizarre speech in New Hampshire on Friday afternoon.
The Daily Show host concluded that he would introduced a new segment titled, “Mitt Romney: The luckiest motherfudger on Earth.”
