Even Daily Show host Jon Stewart was briefly disoriented after watching Sarah Palin’s speech at the Iowa Freedom Summit this past weekend.

“You know, that’s the kind of talk you hear before the pharmacist says, ‘Ma’am, you’ve gotta leave the Walgreens,’ Stewart said after one excerpt. “Now we know what it’s like to get cornered by Palin at an open-bar wedding.”

While conservatives bemoaned her the former Alaska governor’s performance at the event, Stewart remarked that out of the Republican presidential hopefuls who attended, Palin managed to be the only one “more entertaining and less electable” than Donald Trump.

“Sarah Palin doesn’t believe in your liberal elitist ‘grammar and syntax,'” he said after one clip. “She be bold. She no play by your ‘ribbles’ — that’s what she calls rules.”

However, Stewart said he later realized the real meaning behind her “rambling, unintelligible” remarks.

“Sarah Palin is trying to sell America a Lincoln,” Stewart said, before showing clips of Palin “substituting” for Matthew McConaughey in his moody series of car commercials.

Of course, Stewart was surprised any political candidate would attend an event hosted by Rep. Steve King (R-IA) after King’s infamous remarks about immigrants with “calves the size of cantaloupes.”

“That statement’s not even ignorant,” Stewart said. “That statement is like ignorance resin — if you just take all of the stupid and cook it down, just cook it. Cook it down and scrape just the pure ignorance. It’s like Crystal Duh.”

Watch Stewart’s commentary, as posted online on Monday, below.

"The View" panelists burst into laughter over Rudy Giuliani's denial that he did anything inappropriate with a young actress in the new "Borat" sequel.

President Donald Trump's attorney appears as himself in the faux documentary "Borat Subsequent Moviefilm," starring comedian Sacha Baron Cohen and Bulgarian actor Maria Bakalova.

Giuliani accepts an invitation to join Bakalova, who plays Borat's 15-year-old daughter, for a drink in a hotel bedroom after an interview, and Cohen bursts into the room after Guiliani lies down on a bed and stuffs his hand into his pants.

"He says he didn't do anything inappropriate," said host Whoopi Goldberg. "He's just sort of, you know, tucking his shirt in when he was laying on his back."

Sacha Baron Cohen managed to get the actress who plays Borat's daughter into the White House -- all with some help from the Trump-loving One America News network.

In a preview clip posted online, Cohen's Borat character claims that OAN White House correspondent Chanel Rion brought actress Maria Bakalova, who plays Borat's daughter in the latest movie, into the White House with her.

"They take my daughter into the White House!" Borat boasts. "No need for security checks or COVID test!"

WATCH: Trump supporter gets tied up in knots defending president’s $750 income tax payments

Published

on

A support of President Donald Trump this week struggled to defend the president paying just $750 per year in federal income tax.

During an interview with CNN correspondent Elle Reeve, a half-masked Trump supporter said that he wasn't bothered by the president's low tax bill because he figured all rich people pay so little in taxes.

"I would love to be able to comment on that," he replied. "I don't know. And it's one of those situations where you and I can both sit here and say if we made that kind of money, you know, you're going to play the tax game. It's set for millionaires to play the game."
